Fat Joe thinks so! In a recent interview with VLAD TV, Joe let it be known that rappers and the culture of Hip-Hop are no longer driving the urban force known as Hip-Hop!
“[Hip-hop] is the greatest gay market in the world. 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.”
“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. 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.”
