Young Thug: Whatever You Say I Am

“I like everything that people say,” he insists. “No matter what they say. You gay, you a punk. You got a nice girlfriend, you’re ugly, you can’t rap, you’re the hardest.” Is it important that hip-hop has looks other than the hyper-masculine stereotype? His manager jumps in: “That’s why you like him in Europe. That’s how you dress. If he was some masculine guy, I’m not saying they wouldn’t like him, but he’s more relatable. To people who just like old hip-hop.”

“Yeah,” agrees Thug, “Because you’re from Atlanta, Georgia, and you’re dressed like a fucking European. Of course.”

The Guardian - who still seem to find the idea of a black man being gay somewhat 'exotic', if not incongruous.
