During an August 18 MTV interview Kanye West broached the subject of anti-gay remarks in hip-hop. Basically West stated that in light of the recent “coming-out” of a close cousin of his, he now understands the need to stop all negative remarks about gays in hip-hop lyrics. West, who is scheduled to drop his new CD, Late Registration tomorrow, faced some pretty crude comments from bloggers and detractors who even alleged West was gay. Bol Guevara, editor of hip-hop blog ByronCrawford.com said, “Kanye’s momma was one of these intellectual bitches who couldn’t keep a man around. You can tell his mom tried to dress him up like Alfonso Ribeiro from ‘Silver Spoons’ and had him doing all kinds of faggoty shit,” Guevara said. Another blog joked about hip-hop artists finally coming out of the closet and releasing a gay hip-hop compilation. The suggested play list was as follows:
Track 1: “Ain’t nothing wrong with doing it in the Butt”
Track 2: “Drop the Soap in the Shower”
Track 3: “Born this Way & Proud of It”
Track 4: “ Sodom & Gomorrah”
Track 5: “Mel the Funky Homosexual”
Track 6: “Stranded In Uranus”
