The Year We Went Queer

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.
