Migos says, "That's wack..."
Trap star iLoveMakonnen announced via social media that he is homosexual. He tweeted, “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.”
Overall, iLoveMakonnen received an overwhelmingly positive response. However, not everyone is giving him their support, his hip-hop peers included. In an interview with Rolling Stone, rap group, Migos, revealed what they think about the news.
Check out what Migos had to say about iLoveMakonnen’s announcement.
Rolling Stone Interview
An excerpt from Migos’ Rolling Stone interview:
”And so I’m surprised by Migos’ reaction when I mention iLoveMakonnen, the local MC who just came out as gay on Twitter. ‘Damn, Makonnen!’ Quavo bellows after an awkward interlude. I mention support I saw online for Makonnen’s decision. ‘They supported him?’ Quavo asks, raising an eyebrow. ‘That’s because the world is f***ed up,’ says Offset. ‘This world is not right,’ Takeoff says.
That’s wack, bro
‘We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,’ says Quavo. But he suggests that Makonnen’s sexuality undermines his credibility, given the fact that ‘he first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.’ He frowns. ‘That’s wack, bro.’”
This was all said just after Quvao mentioned that he loved the diversity that Atlanta’s rappers have to offer. I guess homosexuality isn’t the type of diversity he was praising.
In an effort to respond to the controversy, Migos has since issued an apology via Twitter. The tweet read, “We always been about being original and staying true. Staying true to yourself goes a long way. We are all fans of Makonnen’s music and we wish he didn’t feel like he ever had to hide himself. We feel the world is f***ed up that people feel like they have to hide and we’re asked to comment on someone’s sexuality. We have no problem with anyone’s sexual preference. We love all people, gay or straight and we apologize if we offended anyone.”
