The gay rapper wars are on. The latest artillery comes from Lil Wayne, who’s dropping his poetry bombs on recently out R&B singer Frank Ocean.
Wayne raps over a remixed version of Future’s new single “Turn On The Lights:” “Tell her I skate/ I ain’t got no worries/ No Frank Ocean, I’m straight.”
The lyrics are a clear reference to Ocean, who broke rap stereotypes earlier this year when he publicly came out saying his first love had been a man.
According to the Gay Star News, Lil Wayne also used anti-gay slurs in his song Georgia Bush, where he says: “Got money out the ass/no homo but I'm rich.”
Some in the industry like hip hop demigods Russell Simmons and J-Zay have supported Ocean’s coming out. But the sentiment is still mostly negative among other black artists.
Chris Brown declined to comment on Ocean’s sexuality, allegedly saying: “Man, no homo!” the Gay Star News reported.
Stevie Wonder had also come out earlier this month commenting that Ocean was “confused” about his sexuality. Wonder later apologized about his words.
“No one has been a greater advocate for the power of love in this word than I; both in my life and in my music. Clearly, love is love,” he told MTV.
