Snoop Lion has said that being gay will likely never be acceptable in the rap industry. The rapper, who has previously spoken out in support of gay marriage, likened the industry to a football team. When asked by The Guardian if he thought that Frank Ocean coming out was a sign of progress in the rap world, Lion responded ..."Frank Ocean ain't no rapper. He's a singer (exactly what i'v been saying).
"It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine. "It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf**king tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you'. You know, that's going to be tough."
He went on to clarify his views on homosexuality, adding: "I don't have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies. "Yeah, for real. People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the '90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified. They just went through the same things we went through as black."
