Kanye West Supports Hip-Hopposite Community


Kanye West wants all the gay bashing in the hip-hop community to stop. Just stop! After being accused of wanting to sprinkle glitter all around the world as a child, Kanye claims he spent many years as a homophobe trying to escape a gay image. But after learning that his cousin is gay, Kanye decided to take on the hip-hop community and make them stop all the hate towards gays.

Kanye will be on MTV at 10:30 PM tonight to discuss the issue.

So says Kanye:
"Speaking your mind and about breaking down barriers, but everyone in hip-hop discriminates against gay people." He adds that in slang, gay is "the opposite, the exact opposite word of hip-hop."

Funny, because in gay slang straight is the exact opposite of hip.

That was an awesome development in the world of rap and hip-hop! There's also a great article that appeared in the "New Yorker" (August 22nd issue) about West.
