    I just appreciate this dude for coming out yet not instantly becoming more "gay" in the aftermath. There's still time for him to wear dresses and dye his hair blonde like Frank Ocean, but for now he's still seems to be the same fun loving, weed smoking, hip hop guy he was before coming Out.

    No, just from the “local” perspective and seeing him on Chi news show interviews, i don’t see that happening at all. His “coming out” seemed like a preemptive press acknowledgement of how he was already living to himself, family, and friends in light of his bro’s fame and establishing his own voice without riding coattails.

    Here it’s no big deal, especially with younger folk, although I’m sure Chicago’s older, chitlin eating church nigga crowd might (silently) grumble. The fact that Taylor’s gen here are comfortable in their own selves means no need for all that “being extra” behavior.

    Sadly, the young, Frank Ocean/dress wearing types in Chi seem to always be in the crime blotter news, probably due to being more fem than Taylor and having homophobic, church families (that’s a whole ‘nother thread for another time).

    I also applaud him for the cover. It’s witty, bold, self-aware and artistic without being so over the top. Although I was like “who put his head on my body?” when I first saw it lol.

    His delivery is low key (I tend to like more vocal inflection/variation), but it def grew on me after a couple of listening.

    I like the song, he has a nice flow. It reminds me of kid cudi a little bit. I'm interested in seeing how he handles his image because he is bisexual so I wonder if we will struggle with demands from his diverse fan base; or will he just do what he feels like doing regardless of what box he is put in. So far it seems like he is doing the latter, good for him.

    p.s. low key i think he a better rapper/lyricist than his brother.

    I'm a little worried about him deleting his entire IG feed after releasing the track. Makes me think he's about to start rebranding himself (i.e.: becoming for "queer culture conforming").

    Oh gosh. I mean.....good for him. But why must he scream and shout when he came out? He coulda released a track and we merit his talent that way. We already knew he was Bi. I just wish ppl who would stop linking sexuality and identity. They should be exclusive of one another.

    Maybe not. Folks on social media are getting stupid now that Trump has made juvenile behavior the norm. For example, the Asian actress in “The Last Jedi” deleted her accounts because of all the racist fuckwads who feel her space is their personal toilet. I’m sure Bennett was like, fuck it, i ain’t got time to deal with the sewer dwellers, so I’ll just cut your electricity off like the utility company.

    It seems like accounts get shut down because you’re either crazy like Trump and Roseanne Barr and scream crazy shit or you’re trying to avoid to avoid the crazy shit by closing shop ...
