T-Pain Says Rappers Blacklisted Singer Frank Ocean for Being Gay

Frank Ocean

Rapper T-Pain is accusing the hip hop community — specifically rappers — of blacklisting singer Frank Ocean because of his sexual preference.

In an open letter on his Tumblr blog in 2012, Ocean wrote that he had “unrequited feelings” for another man. But rather than accept him with open arms, the hip hop community quietly turned their backs on the 26-year-old songwriter (no pun intended). T-Pain suggested other rappers were discriminating against Ocean by not featuring him on their tracks.

T-Pain’s statements indicates that the media’s pro-gay agenda has not made a difference in the opinions of rappers who have been unfairly labeled as homophobic.

The singer told Vlad TV that he believes the perception that rap has become more ‘gay-friendly’ in recent years is a little off the mark.

“I think the radio is getting more gay-friendly,” he said. “I don’t think urban music is getting more gay-friendly because if that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs.

“I know n***as that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the f**king song and that’s so terrible to me, man… What I do ain’t going to affect nothing that you got going on. Source

      Well one thing’s for sure, Frank is doing just fine without the rappers. He might not be doing features, but he is writing and producing for plenty of folks including Miss B. Later for features. I’m waiting for him to come out with his next CD.

      it sho’ is “reah” and some folk are just that nasty :tea:

      (matter of fact I think i very recently saw or read somewhere about this woman who was married to a man who was “in love with” horses and was in a chat group with other so-inclinded folk. he told her that he had not acted on his desire, YET. this fool was saying that she understands and feels bad that she can’t fulfill all of his ‘desires’ and is certainly not going to stop loving him just because he may need something other than her to be happy!!!

      so, um, yeah, she basically gave him her ‘acceptance’ of his needing to “be with” a horse. :eek:

      “After reading this weird news story, you will never have to read another weird news story ever again. It has everything: an insane premise, crazy people, crushing irony, sex, crime, and sex crime. It seems an Irish woman died after an allergic reaction to a dog—a dog she had sex with. Yes. Really.
      From Ireland, the land of geniuses like James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and Bono, comes this story of a 43-year-old woman who encountered a man in a bestiality chat room and then met him at his house in Limerick. She had sex with his Alsatian dog and then had a severe allergic reaction shortly afterwards, possibly from the dog’s semen. She later died at the hospital. The incident apparently took place in 2008, but medical experts just confirmed the cause of death, because the case is finally making its way to court, not because it took them this long to get over the shock of how she died. The dog owner, Sean McDonnell, is charged with “buggery” for ordering the dog to commit the act. Buggery is apparently still a crime on the books in Ireland, so thank God for that. McDonnell is thought to be the first person charged with it since it was enacted in 1861.
      So, next time you hear about a man biting a dog or a delivery driver run over by his own truck, just remember this story and remind yourself it’s best to stay away from the weird news.”

      Carrington says:

      I still don’t get the pro gay “agenda” – is it possible that because the gays have HAD to hide for so long, that everytime someone who is a public figure makes the announcement it BECOMES news (just like Kelly Rowland’s boots and shoes did today) and not because there is an agenda? Maybe, as a society with a homophobic HISTORY, people see it as “brave” to want to face the backlash.

      Right now, there are about 1600 men in the NFL – how many of those men are gay?… so, if ONE comes out, of course it’s “news” because it’s a “first” for the sport. There are currently how many rappers in the game (who actually make money and people know who they are)? So, of course, if one comes out, it’s a story – specifically in a testosterone filled field that’s more known for it’s homophobia than it is for good deeds. Specifically because there are probably a few hundred ballers who are either gay, or dabbled at some point.

      I feel like this – if a person feels like they are tired of people guessing, they’re tired of fearing that people will speak to a blawg, or that an ex will come out and tell his or her story FOR them and they want to come out – let them eat cake.

      I don’t give a $hit what nobody does on their mattress. If you sing and I like your songs, I don’t care what you did before you got to the studio. If you act, and I can BELIEVE you as a special OPS soldier, then I’ll go see the flick. If you play ball and you’re a baller, I’m going to watch.

      I don’t feel an “agenda” per say, I feel that it’s really that more people are coming out of the closet because they live in a society where they CAN these days. The media may have encouraged them to come out, but the media didn’t encourage them to be gay. Reporting it is simply giving nosey people such as myself the people what they want – something to talk about. Just like a negative Beyonce post will give Sandra Mae what she wants… page views/clicks.

      I just think we have more $hit to worry about than anybody’s fuktations that ain’t fuktating you too.
