A$AP Rocky Calls Homophobia In Hip Hop "Retarded"
A$AP Rocky explains his views on homophobia in Hip Hop culture.
A$AP Rocky recently spoke with AOL’s Spinner, venting about homophobia in Hip Hop and actively rallying against it. During the interview, the Harlem, New York native said that he doesn’t care what your sexual preference is as long as you’re a good person, and that he chooses friends based on personality over sexuality.
“I don't give a f--- about your business," he said. "Man, if you're gay we can be friends. If you're straight, we can be friends. I'm not gay, I don't plan on being gay, I don't condone it and I'm not sayin' I'm against it. I really don't give a f--- and I don't think anyone should care about what another man's preference is... unless he's interested, if you know what I'm sayin'."
"Who gives a f---?" he says. "I like women. I love women. I'm not going to not be your friend because you like men. As long as you're a great person and, aside from that, y'know, you don't bother me and make me uncomfortable, then let's be friends, dude… It doesn't matter. You don't see people for being gay. People need to leave gay people the f--- alone. Like, who cares? If you still care about s--- like that you need to just hang yourself like the rest of them KKK motherf---ers. For real. Who gives a f---?"
He compares Hip Hop to Pop, citing Lady Gaga as an artist who does not discriminate against those who enjoy her music. “[Hate a person] because they're a thief or a bad person," he says. "Don't hate 'em for what they choose to do, because they make decisions on their own time what they choose to do. I don't care and it's like f---ed up that hip-hop is so retarded. They don't want to accept nothing."
