so as you know,
i love watching “everyday struggles” on youtube.
and nadeska alexis discuss hip hop and topics within the culture.
i love the witty banter and joey turning into “super saiyan” especially.
well the discussion was about tyler the creator,
his alleged coming out,
and being gay in that hip hop forest.
(starts @1:25 – 19:31)
that was a deep discussion.
i’m inclined to agree with joey’s sentiments,
but i also agree with dj akademiks as well.
hip hop is a very “alpha male/vixen” arena.
as the years develop,
hiphop is more accepting of “different” males as the culture develops.
drake legit raps about and pours his feelings on wax.
it’s a different climate…
But that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a homophobic realm
tyler the creator can come out because he is odd.
hence his squad name.
no one cares because it’s kinda like…
what’s for lunch?”
now a “meek mill” type of “straight” coming out the hip hop closet…
Would they not be automatically banished?
the thing is…
no one cares of the softer/odd/different male is bisexual or gay.
and flow is probably different.
as emotional as he is,
would be blacklisted since his whole image is whining over vixens.
it’s the ones who brag about money,
fuckin 20 vixens at one time,
and being the “alpha” is what won’t be accepted by public opinion.
even the gays won’t accept him so he’ll be done.
you were doing all of that and then decided to come out?
that’s placed under the “dl/liar/fake” microscope and the career will end.
you can be as dl as you wannabe behind the scenes,
but the moment you start rapping about being gay,
is when you won’t sell another record again.
society isn’t there yet.
someone like tyler the creator,
who is free to do what he wants with is music,
will still be accepted with open arms by his stans.
he will probably be shunned by everyone else tho.
that and he is weird.
frank ocean was lucky to have b and jay on his team.
Am I wrong?
low-key: it’s similar to what kiing law was talking about.
he is gay and looks like an alpha male.
vixens want to fuck and procreate.
gays either want to fuck or challenge his masculinity.
straight wolves will think he will trap them in an alley and rape them.
the other alpha “looking” straight males are now intimidated.
isn’t it good to know,
no matter how masculine or feminine someone is,
we all have issues fitting into society?
