|Rapper iLoveMakonnen comes out the closet. Mainstream rapper/singer announced he's gay on social media.|
Atlanta rapper/singer iLoveMakonnen comes out as gay. The rapper joins a growing list of entertainers in the hip-hop industry making waves in the LGBT community. And on top of that, he's getting mad props for doing so.
The rapper took a moment away from music to focus on acting. But it didn't leave him off the social media to announce to his fans that he's now happy in his skin.
And since y'all love breaking news, here's some old news to break, I'm gay. And now I've told u about my life, maybe u can go life yours❤— Oceanic Makonnen (@iLoveMakonnen5D) January 20, 2017
As a fashion icon, I can't tell u about everybody else's closet, I can only tell u about mine, and it's time I've come out.— Oceanic Makonnen (@iLoveMakonnen5D) January 20, 2017
Someone said to me next time they see me, they was gonna fuck me , I said next time I see me, I'm gonna love me up— Oceanic Makonnen (@iLoveMakonnen5D) January 20, 2017
Now being gay in the hip-hop community could be suicide for a career.
Those "oh so straight" rappers in the streets believe that being gay in hip-hop isn't cool.
Take for example internet troll Joe Budden.
