Singer Frank Ocean has opened his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City after retiring from the music biz. Ocean's music career went the way of the dinosaurs after he came out as homosexual when he left the hip-hop collective Odd Future to go solo.

Now the 31-year-old Scorpio is back on the scene - but not as a hip-hop artist. The "Novacane" singer launched his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City.

Ocean will be throwing his grand opening party on Thursday night called PrEP+ in New York, The Blast reports. The name PrEP+ comes from the prescription drug taken by MSM (men who have sex with men) to prevent the transmission of HIV.

Ocean announced PrEP+ is "an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs."

After everything he's gone through, Ocean says his LGBT+ nightclub will not tolerate hate of any kind. If you are not ghey-friendly, you will not be welcomed at PrEP+.

Kid Cudi performs at the Coachella Art & Music Festival

A loyal reader writes: "Did you see the pic of Kid Cudi at coachella in a crop top? I can't believe this.... what's going on?"

I'm surprised she even asked that question. Isn't it obvious that hip hop has been overwhelmingly gay for decades? It's a good thing that more rappers are coming out of the closet in 2014. Hopefully they will encourage more down low black men to come out of the closet. This will save the lives of thousands of black women who contract the HIV virus from their down low men.

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.

Chris Brown dissed Frank Ocean at the Grammys

If you were sitting in the nosebleed section at the 55th Annual Gramnmys when a buzz went through the crowd last night, here's what happened: troubled singer Chris Brown refused to stand and give singer Frank Ocean his props when Ocean won a Grammy for something or other.

Can you blame Brown? The two men recently went toe-to-toe in a recording studio parking lot in LA. So they have no love for each other.

Frank Ocean Chris Brown

The LAPD are investigating an early morning brawl between singers Chris Brown and Frank Ocean over, of all things, a parking spot!

According to an insider who was with Brown last night, they left the Westlake Recording studios in West Hollywood around 2 a.m. this morning. As Brown approached his car -- which was parked in Ocean's parking spot -- he saw that Ocean had blocked his car in with his own vehicle.

That's when words were exchanged between Ocean and Brown's camp. But my source says Brown stayed out of the loud chattering. My source said Brown attempted to back out of the parking spot. But according to my source, Ocean started running off at the mouth. "[Brown] was the peacemaker," said the insider. "He didn't want any trouble."
