A video that shows rapper Kevin Gates kissing Hot Boys rapper Turk is going viral after the Nola rapper's sit-down interview with DJ Vlad.

In his discussion with Vlad, Turk explained why Ca$h Money Records founder Birdman kisses his artists, such as Lil Wayne.

Turk told DJ Vlad all rappers play "gay games" with their male friends behind closed doors. He added that most men are insecure about their sexuality.

Turk's remarks may be the first time a mainstream rapper confirmed rumors that most rappers are repressed homosexuals.

The interview went viral and was discussed in detail on The Breakfast Club.

Now a video has surfaced of rapper Kevin Gates kissing Turk. In the video, Turk explains that rappers with gay tendencies is particular to New Orleans and that outsiders wouldn't understand.

The news comes as rapper DaBaby lost lucrative bookings for uttering anti-HIV and anti-ghey during Rolling Loud festival in Miami last month.

Lil Nas X refuses to talk about homophobia in rap, because he's getting death threats and he fears for his life.

The openly ghey country trap star has already irked fellow rappers with his flamboyant "Industry Baby" and "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" music videos.

In the "Industry Baby" music video, LNX danced naked in a prison shower with other nude inmates. That scene in particular didn't go over very well with super straight rappers such as DaBaby and Boosie Badazz.

LNX also stirred up controversy at the recent BET Awards by French kissing a male dancer onstage.

LGBT+ groups praised LNX and asked him to do more to decrease LGBT+ stigma by discussing homophobia in hip-hop.

However, the "Old Town Road," star tells Variety.com he's not willing to go that far after receiving threats.

"The honest truth is, I don't want to speak on a lot of the homophobia within rap because I feel like this is a very dangerous playing field... It's more for my own safety rather than anything else."

LNX reveals that after the "Montero" video was released, in which he gives Satan a lap dance, someone chased his car, yelling abuse at him.

LNX didn't reveal the names of rappers who recently threatened him with bodily harm.

"That's when I actually started getting security," he said.

Rapper Boosie Badazz (pictured) recently went on a homophobic rant against LNX after fellow rapper DaBaby was canceled.

"If I was DaBaby, I'll tell them f**k y'all," said Boosie in defense of DaBaby on Instagram Live.

"Lil Nas, they want to perform naked for charity... That's the most disrespectful [expletive] in the world.... They got kids who watch that sh*t," he said, before urging LNX to give head on IG.

Boosie called LNX a "fa**ot" and said he would "beat up" the 22-year-old rapper on sight.

After Boosie's rant, Instagram deleted his account for the 4th time this year.

Rapper T.I. defended DaBaby's homophobic speech at the Rolling Out music festival in Miami, Florida on Sunday, July 25.

During his Sunday night set, DaBaby invited fans to put their "cellphone lighters up" if they don't have HIV or AIDS "or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that'll make you die in two to three weeks".

He also told males to hold their cellphones up if they didn't give fellatio to men in the parking lot.

Twitter users were quick to protest the rapper's comments, and LGBT+ advocacy groups called him out for stigmatizing people with HIV.

DaBaby attempted to apologize for his comments on Monday, but he failed miserably.

The rapper claimed his words weren't directed at his gay fans because they're not "nasty ghey n**gas" or "junkies" and they take care of themselves. He said his ghey fans don't have HIV or AIDS.
 

In an Instagram Live on Monday, T.I. insisted what DaBaby said was no more disturbing than videos by openly gay rapper Lil Nas X.

T.I. said he had "a lot of respect" for openly ghey artists, but he also felt Lil Nas X's new "Industry Baby" video went too far.

"That s**t ain't for me," he said. "I can't look at it."

"If you gonna have the Lil Nas X video and him living his truth, you gonna damn sure have people like DaBaby who gonna speak their truth."

T.I., a father of seven, defended his pro-heterosexual stance.

"I respect gheys... If homosexuals have more rights than heterosexual people, just say that... Just let that be the law," he said.

He added he doesn't want his children watching Lil Nas X's video and he feels the same way about the raunchy "WAP" video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion -- although he enjoyed watching the "WAP" video.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old rapper and his wife, Tiny, 46, continue to deny allegations of sexual assault brought against them by multiple women, who have accused the couple of drugging and assaulting them.

Nas X is the first rapper to feature an all-Black ghey male cast twerking in his music video. Such a spectacle would not have been possible 20 years ago.

Some parents objected to Nas X being promoted to their children. Nas X has a large following of children and adolescents who buy his books and music.

Here's how Black Twitter responded to the music video:

Lil Nas X dropped the music video to his latest single titled "Industry Baby" ft. Jack Harlow late Thursday.

Directed by Christian Breslauer, the music video is heavy on LGBT+ imagery, such as inmates dancing naked in the shower. Their private parts are blurred to get the video past the FCC censors.

In the video, Nas X is sentenced to five years at Montero State prison for being an unrepentant homosexual. Lil Nas X portrays the judge, a lawyer, the district attorney, and one juror.

Harlow makes out with a female in his prison cell before breaking out of prison with Nas X.

Anticipating possible backlash to his LGBT+ agenda, Nas X tweeted:

"saying this in advance so y'all won't blame me. THE INDUSTRY BABY VIDEO IS NOT FOR YOUR KIDS!"

Thanks to Kanye West's production, the song will be in heavy rotation on the radio before fading into obscurity.

If you're not already a Lil Nas X fan, this video won't convert you.

An Indianapolis rapper is being charged with first-degree murder in the death of a 39-year-old man he met via a dating app.

Diabolique Paris Johnson, 34, was arrested in the shooting death of Joshua J. Smelser in the victim's home in Detroit last September.

After shooting Smelser multiple times, witnesses saw Johnson leave the man's home with his backpack, which contained his wallet, credit cards and cellphone.

Johnson, a down low aspiring rapper (pictured), is also accused of robbing a 26-year-old man four days earlier at a hotel in Dearborn.

Both victims were Caucasian men who were "hunted" by Johnson on same-sex dating apps, police say.

Johnson was arrested in Indianapolis on December 4 and extradited to Michigan this week, WDIV reported.

He was charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of felony firearm possession.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy joined forces with the Fair Michigan Justice Project, an organization that helps law enforcement investigate crimes against the LGBT+ community.

Former hip-hop/country rapper Lil Nas X hopes his new core audience -- children -- will make his new career choice a big success.

After the success of his one hit song, "Old Town Road," the Grammy-winning country/hip-hop singer released his first children's book, "C is for Country."

The concept of the new book is "just be yourself." The book takes young readers on a tour of a mythical farm and the things Lil Nas X loves.

"A is for adventure." "B is for boots." "C is for country" are examples Lil Nas X uses to teach minor children their ABCs.

It doesn't take long for the Alphabet to take a detour off the farm.

"F" is for fringe, feathers and fake fur, according to Lil Nas X, who dabbled in his mother's makeup, shoes, and fake furs as a child.

"I love that for me," he says, before adding that the "be yourself" message is missing from children's books.

"It was never truly enforced. It was kind of like 'do what you want, be who you want, but be who I want you to be.'"

The Atlanta rapper, real name Montero Lamar Hill, came out of the closet in 2019.

Lil Nas X, 21, said his young nieces and nephews, to whom the book is dedicated, helped influence his message in the book.

He clapped back at fans on social media who accused him of being a pedophile after a young male fan unfounded leveled accusations at him.

Lil Nas X doesn't regret leaving his gimmicky rap career behind to help LGBT+ children discover their truth.

"I'm well aware that life and careers and everything goes in chapters," he said. "That's the chapter I'm in right now and I'm OK with that."

According to HotNewHipHop.com, a furious Nick dropped his response track on Monday, Dec. 9, after taking the weekend off to dig up dirt on Eminem.

On the track, an old skool rapper mentions Eminem's family, his apparent affinity for crack cocaine, and that supposed sex tape involving Eminem with another man.

"I heard your chauffeur got a video of you sucking a c*ck/ You paid him off then lead him off/ Now who really the opps."

Nick said Eminem didn't waste any time sending his lawyers to address the diss track. Responding to a tweet by HotNewHipHop.com, Nick said Eminem's attorneys contacted him about that verse.

"FACTS! His lawyers didn't want that one out," Nick tweeted. "They already on my line."

Nick's claims sparked a frenzy on social media among Eminem's fans who compared notes and scoured old social media posts and Eminem's lyrics for any hint as to who the other male might be.

Listen to Nick Cannon's diss track below.

Question: Who do you think the other male is?

Drake was booed off the stage by fans who expected to see Frank Ocean perform at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw 2019 music festival in Los Angeles over the weekend.

According to WENN.com, it had been rumored that rapper Frank Ocean, 32, was scheduled to perform during the evening, so when the "God's Plan" rapper stepped onstage, he was met with a chorus of boos from the crowd.

Cell phone video uploaded to YouTube by YeeterzTV shows Drake attempting to perform despite the booing at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.

Drake tried using a little psychology, telling the audience: "I'm here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going." But it didn't work, as the concertgoers replied "Nooooo!"

Embarrassed and humiliated, Drake cut his set short by 20 minutes, telling the crowd: "It's been love. I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake. thank you for having me."

Following his quick exit, many concertgoers took to Twitter to share the news. According to one Twitter user, fans at the festival were expecting to see performances by openly homosexual rappers, such as Tyler, 28, and Frank Ocean (pictured left), but they got the closeted rapper Drake instead.

"Fans at camp flog gnaw were expecting that Frank ocean was gonna be the surprise guest headliner... they got drake instead.. safe to say... they rather Frank ocean."

But others insisted Ocean had never been confirmed to perform at the festival, and they don't know how that rumor got started.

"Tyler, The Creator never said it was Frank Ocean or gave clues about it," one person tweeted. "That's y'all fault for being mad and assuming s**t. It should be whatever that A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert and Drake were the mystery guest for Camp Flog Gnaw."

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+.
