In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Fat Joe discussed the recent Mister Cee scandal, revealing that he believes rap music is run by a "gay mafia," who occupy key positions of power in the industry, which he dubbed "the greatest gay market in the world."

In the interview, Joey Crack, who recently shed a confounding amount of weight, outed a variety of industry big wigs -- without naming names, of course -- while encouraging gay people to "rep your set."

"[Hip-hop] is the greatest gay market in the world," Joe explained. "The hip-hop community is most likely owned by gay. I happen to think there's a gay mafia in hip-hop. Not rappers -- editorial presidents of magazines, the PDs at radio stations, the people who give you awards at award shows. This is the f---ing gay mafia, man. They're in power ... So why wouldn't a guy come out and say, 'Yo, I'm gay' and get that type of love? Like Lady Gaga, I don't know if she's gay, but she's running with that gay s--- for real. And she's winning. It's 2011 going on 2012. If you're gay, rep your set."

While Joe was careful to state that the gay mafia is not primarily made up of rappers, he went on to say that he believes there are gay rappers in the industry, and that he's "pretty sure" he has recorded songs with several of them.

"I think I've done songs with gay rappers. I'm pretty sure of that. I'm pretty sure the football n----s is gay, the basketball n----s is gay -- n----s is gay," he continued. "There's millions of gay people in the world. Girls, too. Once again, I'm not a fan of that s--- either. I'm a fan of 'Yo, I'm gay, what the f---?' 2011, you gotta hide that you're gay? Be real! Like, 'I'm gay, what the f---?' If you gay, you gay. That's your preference. F--- it if the people don't like it."
