    His defense of homophobia in hip hop didn’t really make much sense to me.

      Yeah, there was another part on Hip Hop Homophobia where we talked about Lord Jamar and his comments on VLAD TV but we cut it out b/c it was redundant. LastO seems conflicted on it but looks the other way since he really loves the music the homophobes put out.

      The acceptance of misogyny in Hip Hop is the most contradictory to me. Especially from fems who hate our site just for saying “masculine” so much yet they love artists like Drake, Lil Wayne and others.

        Just seems weird to me how gays can like homophobic hip hop artists. It seems like gays in general(black gays anyway) give homophobia a pass, yet I bet things would be different if it was racism.

    I just wana cosign on yall not EVER cowering to the ppl who think masc men are ‘pretending’. FUK what any1 thinks, WE know better..

    LastO seems like a very level headed person and he is talented. However, as redundant as it may have been, it would have been interesting to hear him pushed a little bit on that “Lord” Jamar “interview” in particular. Also, the whole “perceived” separation between extremely masc and extremely fem ppl is starting to remind me of the not so “perceived” separation between traditionally educated and non-educated black folk, but that’s a random thought that came to mind when hearing the dialogue around the Cypher Ave hate mail and the fox news comparison.
