Food 4 The Hip-Hop Soul By YLR Blogger: H.Figueroa

Food 4 The Hip-Hop Soul

unnamed

So, the other day I’m randomly researching; as I often do and I come across Kamau Bell interviewing the legendary hip-hop radio host/ blogger Jay Smooth. This interview is especially interesting to me, because the discussion turns toward homophobia in hip-hop. Jay speaks of the fact that there are already lgbt rappers out commercially, just not currently in the mainstream. He also goes on to speak of the youth and how they are more apt to accept an lgbt hip-hop artist. “The generation gap is creating change that is freaking out older hip-hoppers, that think our culture is going to lose its moral center if people are openly gay or wear skinny jeans and things like that” says Jay. “There’s a sort of old fogey, anti-gay tea party contingent among hip-hoppers my age.”
Jay also brings up Audrey Lord, Bayard Rustin, and James Baldwin and speaks of how the gay rights movement started at Stonewall.  “There’s nobody more gangster than the LGBT community.” Jay, as usual drops truth and knowledge, unmatched by many in his field.
This was such a dope interview, that you should definitely check out for yourself.

Dope LGBTQ and EVERYTHING.
