Ten Gay Rappers Breaking Down Barriers and Bringing Dat Heat

Hip-hop has rarely been heralded for its acceptance of the gay community, but all things must change with time.

Lots of rappers and hip-hoppers are speculated to be gay. Lil B seemed like he was coming out when he dropped a mixtape entitled I'm Gay (I'm Happy), but denied it. Meanwhile, Frank Ocean's admitted to having once been in love with a man.

But what about being out and proud? Where's our here and queer brothers on the mike? Turns out, there's a good number of openly homosexual rappers really packing a punch, and they've got no qualms about breaking down barriers and bringin dat heat.
