In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Fat Joe asserted that Hip Hop is run by some kind of “gay mafia” that decides who gets records deals, awards, etc.
“‘The hip-hop community is most likely owned by gay, to be honest with you. I happen to think there is a gay mafia in hip-hop. Not rappers, the editorial presidents of magazines, the PDs at radio stations, the people who give you awards at award shows. This is the f**king gay mafia. They are in power. So why wouldn’t a guy come out and say, ‘yo, I’m gay’ and get that type of love. I mean, Lady Gaga, I don’t know if she’s gay but she’s running with that gay sh*t for real, and she is winning.'”
Joe also says that he’s probably already worked with a Gay rapper, and thinks that, in this day and age, if you’re a Gay rapper, “rep your set.”
It’s great that he’s so open-minded, but isn’t there something problematic about Joey (and many other people) thinking Gay people are a part of some kind of gang or club?
