50 Cent doesn't like the homos; bigoted reggae artists to play RI
The rap superstar has nothing against gay men, but he can’t foresee a time when a homosexual hip-hop star will make it big.
He says, “Being gay isn’t cool – it’s not what the music is based on. There’s always been conflict at the centre of hip-hop, because it’s all about which guy has the competitive edge, and you can’t be that aggressive if you’re gay. “If being straight isn’t your preference, well, that’s up to you. But there’s no successful men in hip-hop.
“I mean, some rappers are fruity, but they don’t say they’re gay out in the open.”
I wonder how he and Kanye West get along, since the latter has come out against hip-hop homophobia.
Over to homophobia-laced reggae “artists.” Two that have advocated for the killing of gays and lesbians are slated to play Rhode Island. (365gay.com):
Two Jamaican dancehall performers who advocate killing gays are scheduled to perform at a Providence nightclub this month.
Beenie Man will perform at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel on Monday and Buju Banton will appear at the club on Nov. 21. Civil rights group Voices Against Hate has issued a call for a boycott of the venue after its owners refused to cancel the concerts.
“[They] really ought to think about what they’re trying to achieve. I think it’s sincere, but I don’t think that it’s right,” club owner Rich Lupo told the Providence Journal.
…A performance by Beenie Man at a second club, the Ocean Mist, in Matunuck, was cancelled after its owner was made aware of the singer’s lyrics
.Beenie Man, whose real name is Anthony Davis, is on a tour of US cities. His hit tune, Bad Man Chi Chi Man (Bad Man, Queer Man), instructs listeners to kill gays: “If yuh nuh chi chi (queer) man wave yuh right hand and (NO!!!)/If yuh nuh lesbian wave yuh right hand and (NO!!!)Some bwoy will go a jail fi kill man tun bad man chi chi man!!!./Tell mi, sumfest it should a be a showdown/Yuh seem to run off a stage like a clown (Kill Dem DJ!!!)”.
Buju Banton‘s number one hit â€˜Boom Bye Byeâ€™ urges listeners to shoot gay men in the head, pour acid over them and burn them alive.
