Snoop Lion unsure if hip hop will ever accept LGBT rappers

0

Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) commented on the rap community’s acceptance of homosexuality, saying he’s skeptical that LGBT inclusion in the hip hop community will ever become a reality.

When asked about Frank Ocean’s coming out, Snoop said, “[Ocean’s] a singer,” in an interview with NME.com. “It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine.”

Snoop compared rap music to sports, saying, “It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherf—-g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.”

Despite these comments, Snoop Lion claimed he does not share the homophobic views of some of his musical peers.

“I don’t have a problem with gay people,” he said. “I got some gay homies.”
