Larry King and Young Jeezy

Rapper Jeezy Discusses Homophobia in Hip-Hop with Larry King

(AllHipHop News) Grammy nominated rapper and entrepreneur Jeezy sat down with Larry King on the Emmy-nominated series, “Larry King Now” and gave the veteran newsman an in-depth and wide-ranging interview about a number of topics.

One subject that interested Larry King was the topic of homophobia in Hip-Hop.

While openly gay artist Young M.A. is currently breaking down some barriers for the LGBTQ community, Jeezy believes the culture has a long way to go before Hip-Hop can fully embrace a gay artist.

“I guess culture-wise it just doesn’t match with it, what hip-hop represents. You know, hip-hop is about being tough and just really being dominant and just being individual with it,” Jeezy told Larry King.

On a lighter note, Jeezy also revealed what rapper he would want to collaborate with most, in addition to his love for Sade and Bon Jovi.
