Snoop Lion addresses Frank Ocean and homophobia in hip-hop
The landscapes of rap and R&B are worlds apart when it comes to homosexuality, according to Snoop Lion. And R&B crooner Frank Ocean's openness last year about falling in love with a man won't make rap any less homophobic. "Frank Ocean ain't no rapper," Snoop told the Guardian in a recent interview. "He's a singer. 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." He went on to describe the rap world as having a "football team" mentality: "You can't be in a locker room full of mother------ tough-a-- dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough." Snoop, who has spoken out in support of gay marriage, added, "I don't have a problem with gay people.I got some gay homies."
