HBO developing a drama produced by John Legend about a “Down Lo” Miami Rapper

Picture 6

(Via Deadline site)

At least we think it’s about a rapper in South Beach struggling with the question of coming out or remaining “Down Lo”. It’s set in the sexy, hot Miami location surrounded by the fashion and music scene. This looks interesting. We’ll see if it materializes. Click on photo above for more info.

What do yall think about this? Do you want to see it? Other media that mentions this show has plenty of negative comments from our hip hop community but what else are we to expect? It aint like we all have the right to marry the one we love or can share those benefits that all legally married partners have yet. It aint like I feel 100% safe that a motherf****er won’t try me just because of my preference. This aint Ameri – wait. Never mind.

Frank Ocean made waves last year for admitting his relationship with a party of the same-sex so imagine all the controversy thrown his way.  Now imagine the commotion for a rapper. Male, at that. Do you think Hip Hop is ready for this? Crossing fingers over here and hoping this won’t be the last we hear about it.  If the show happens and it doesn’t breed acceptance, understanding or tolerance, at least we’re set to enjoy a ratchet show of outta-control blog commenters that will be sure to bring entertaining drama.
