Fat Joe On The ‘Gay Mafia’ Of Hip-Hop And Rap Music (VIDEO)
ha. this isn’t what you might expect.
Here, Fat Joe swiftly goes from a sentiment which seems to embrace open homosexuality, to insinuating there is a “gay mafia” in the media and executive levels controlling the rap industry.
To be fair to Fat Joe, the language of conspiracy theories, as wince-worthy as it is, is pretty standard in hip-hop, where people think 2Pac is alive and that Jay-Z is in the illuminati.
I think his point was that the music industry is as gay as the American family, it’s not something hip-hop is fighting against, and that contra reputation hip-hop is basically in the same space as the rest of the country when it comes to cringe-worthy but progressing conversations about homosexuality.
Not apologizing for ‘gay mafia,’ just saying that this reads to me as more a sign of progress than a sign of the protocols of the order of leviticus.
