well okay then…
12/12/12 is off to a GREAT start.
i’m glad more a$ap rocky spoke up about this.
an f-bi sent me an old article on his stance about gays and hiphop.
thought this was a good read…
“I don’t give a f— about your business,” ASAP Rocky tells Spinner. “Man, if you’re gay we can be friends. If you’re straight, we can be friends. I’m not gay, I don’t plan on being gay, I don’t condone it and I’m not sayin’ I’m against it. I really don’t give a f— and I don’t think anyone should care about what another man’s preference is… unless he’s interested, if you know what I’m sayin’.”
ASAP Rocky’s quick to point out that he’s an ardent heterosexual (he’s reportedly dating LA rapper Iggy Azalea). But it shouldn’t matter if he wasn’t.
“Who gives a f—?” he continues. “I like women. I love women. I’m not going to not be your friend because you like men. As long as you’re a great person and, aside from that, y’know, you don’t bother me and make me uncomfortable, then let’s be friends, dude.
“It doesn’t matter. You don’t see people for being gay. People need to leave gay people the f— alone. Like, who cares? If you still care about s— like that you need to just hang yourself like the rest of them KKK motherf—ers. For real. Who gives a f—?”
What bothers ASAP Rocky most is that he figures things like homophobia are bad for his music.
“I’m not saying that hip-hop needs gay rappers or anything,” he says, “but they need to stop being so close-minded because that will just cause the genre to fail. Look at pop. Pop doesn’t discriminate against people. Look at Lady Gaga, y’know what I mean? Who the f— makes the rules for hip-hop? Who the f— dictates who’s cool and who’s not? F— you.”
ASAP Rocky figures there are better reasons to hate someone than who a person chooses to have sex with, and he feels hip-hoppers should be more accepting.
“[Hate a person] because they’re a thief or a bad person,” he says. “Don’t hate ’em for what they choose to do, because they make decisions on their own time what they choose to do. I don’t care and it’s like f—ed up that hip-hop is so retarded. They don’t want to accept nothing.”
he is from harlem.
that is d/l central.
he better be accepting by now.
i don’t see people as homophobic as back in the day.
maybe times have changed?
peopel are becoming more tolerant?
or are they starting to realize we run this?
we tend to be very talented,
and when we focus on things other than sex,
we can move mountains.
we are bosses,
and can be in charge of a career in the entertainment industry.
some are out.
some are in.
same rules apply.
we tell you what to wear,
and what’s not.
we have ruined the careers of many.
so in other words:
don’t fuck with us.
a$ap rocky knows the deal.
these others better get hip.
