Game Claims ‘Several Rappers’ Are Gay but in the Closet
According to Game, some of rap’s biggest rhyme-spitters have an even bigger secret: they’re gay.
The ‘My Life’ hitmaker told VLAD TV that he believes “several rappers” in the industry are actually homosexuals, but choose to remain in the closet about their sexuality. Game confirmed that he has no issue with gay people, only those who pretend not to be. He said those “are the only type of gay people that I have a problem with.”
Naturally, Game didn’t name any names or out any of his peers. He did hint, however, that he’s likely worked with a gay rapper in the past. “Possibly, yeah,” he confirmed. “And not being just full-out gay, just pretending he loves girls and lives the rap lifestyle, but really he’s a man fan… There’s a lot of man fans out there in hip-hop. I see how you n****s be looking at n****s you’re around too. They be looking at n****s crazy.”
The rapper made sure to reiterate that he’s not homophobic, nor does he take issue with homosexuals. “Game don’t have a problem with gay people. Game has problem with people who are pretending not to be gay,” he said. He went on to explain that his beef isn’t just liars, it’s the danger that they can cause others by hiding their secret from the world. “The number one issue with that is that you can be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die. So that in the closet shit is real scary.”
While Game made sure to express the brevity of being in the closet, he didn’t leave his interview without a joke, saying, “Beyonce should have asked ‘Who run the world? Gays’.”
Game’s ‘The R.E.D. Album’ dropped on August 23.
