(AllHipHop News) MTV caught up with Lil Wayne and got the rapper’s views on the revelation that NBA hooper Jason Collins is gay.
Lil Wayne kept his response terse and to the point, but made it clear that door have been opened for gays in sports sports.
“What it does for sports? It’s opening a lot of doors and it’s showing that it’s a fair world out there. Just to see how many people came to his support and things like that, that’s a pretty fair world out there. Be you.”
A$AP Rocky shared a similar opinion, but also took a moment to chide those men that stay in the closet hiding their true selves.
“That’s his business,” Rocky said in an interview with KYSDC radio in Washinton DC. “I respect men more for coming out. People joke on Frank Ocean a lot but at least he’s not out here fronting. It’s a lot of people, a lot of motherf*ckers be out here, they be the closet motherf*ckers, you know? I don’t respect them. I respect gay men who identify it and who are out with it. I don’t have a problem with gay people at all. So it’s like, that’s his business. It don’t concern me. Number one, I barely get to watch basketball like that as it is. Number two, I don’t even know who this n*gga is that you talking about. Dead a**. He probably has ten times more money than me but I don’t know who he is. We got the Frank Ocean of the NBA now who came out and did what he had to do. Shout-outs to him.”
