Snoop Dogg Thinks Time Is Right for Gay Rapper

In an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, Snoop Dogg revealed his recent thoughts on homosexuality in hip-hop.

The hip-hop legend believes the world is “ready for an openly gay rapper.” This statement of support, will mean more than a lot to a legion of fans around the globe.

He told Salt Lake that: “People are learning how to live and get along more, and accept people for who they are and not bash them or hurt them because they’re different.” “When I was growing up, you could never do that and announce that,” continued Snoop. “There would be so much scrutiny and hate and negativity, and no one would step (forward) to support you because that’s what we were brainwashed and trained to know.”

Snoop’s support of gay rights comes a month or so following Jay-Z’s approval of President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage (Hov declared “It was the right thing to do”), and Frank Ocean’s summer revelation in which he disclosed in a letter that he’s first love was a man, in the wake of glowing reviews for his Channel Orange.

Snoop’s support means more than a lot, given his status in the world of hip-hop.
