Say What! — Nicki Minaj Says ‘The World’s Not Ready for a Gay Rapper’ + More

Openly bi-sexual rapper Nicki Minaj spoke recently about hip-hop homophobia, claiming that the world is just not ready for an openly gay rapper just yet. “I think the world is getting more gay-friendly, so hip-hop is too. But it’s harder to imagine an openly gay male rapper being embraced,” Minaj explained. “People view gay men as having no street credibility. But I think we’ll see one in my lifetime.” Where’s Omar?

One of the best ignorant rappers of all time, N.O.R.E., discussed the difference between being “ignorant” and “ghetto,” citing his Newport piece as an example. “You don’t have to stop being the person you are because you live a certain way. You are who you are but there’s a difference between ghetto and ignorance,” the Queens rapper explained. “Now the Newport piece that I bought, that was ignorant….That was the first time I felt like I played myself a lil bit.” Whatever, that was ill.
