Homo hop is over. You heard that right. Queer rappers now want to be known primarily for their talent instead of their orientation. Along with this shift in perception comes a larger acceptance by fans of mainstream hip hop, never mind what Snoop Lion (or whatever he’s called these days) says. In the wave of Frank Ocean’s coming out we have a whole raft of up-and-comers who don’t mind being seen as openly queer. Add some long-standing talent to the mix and what do you have? A truly addictive playlist.
