Gay Rapper Fly Young Red Signs Exclusive Deal With Texas Based Label

By Nick Delmacy | Posted Jun 10 2016 | 8 Comments  


Long after squashing rumors that he’d signed a deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, openly gay Texas-born rapper Fly Young Red has now officially joined local Houston music label Music and Talent Nation.

Since bursting onto the scene 2 years ago with his viral music video, “Throw That Boy Pussy,” Fly Young Red (born Jeffrey Christopher Jackson, Jr) has dropped a mixtape (Pretty Boy Realness), new music videos and opened concerts for artists like Trina.

As we’ve reported in great length in the past, indie gay rappers have been Out and open in the industry for quite some time. Only recently have they been making an impact into the mainstream consciousness. Artists like Le1f, Mykki Blanco and Cakes Da Killa are also letting the world know that Hip Hop music is not exclusive to heterosexuals.

Out of all those artists, Fly Young Red is the only one who appears to fit the traditional model of the braggadocios, alpha-male, heterosexual MC’s that we know and love. However, instead of scantily clad female strippers, Fly Young Red showcases transgender women and men twerking their “boy pussies.”

In the press release, Fly Young Red states, “I want to thank Dale and the Music and Talent Nation Family for giving me this opportunity to express myself as a legit recording artist.  I just want to make good music….”

We look forward to seeing not only what Fly Young Red releases in the future, but also what artists he inspires to follow his lead.
