Gay Rapper Fly Young Red Discusses Career & Girls vs Boys [VIDEO]


Needless to say, Lord Jamar will not be co-signing Fly Young Red anytime soon, if ever. The openly gay rapper of “Throw That Boy P*ssy” fame, or infamy, recently discussed his come up.

Fly Young Red holla’d at the Doo Dirty Show recently, revealing that he was actually a “straight” rapper until last September.

Reports the Huffington Post:

Openly gay rapper Fly Young Red made waves across the Internet last month with the release of his new video, “Throw The Boy P*ssy.”

The song has polarized popular opinion and sparked a larger conversation about openly gay rappers in hip-hop. In a recent interview with Da-Doo Dirty Show host DJ Baker, the rapper discussed his journey to being an openly gay rapper, his music and, of course, sex.

“I was rapping with a group and like I said they were straight and I mean, I don’t know, like I backed up for a minute,” the rapper told Baker in the above video. “I’m a poet by nature so I never lost, you know what I’m saying, anything that I was doing, and it’s in my heart to do it, you know what I’m saying? So I kept up with it or whatever but I just started openly gay rapping in September.”

    Oh well. At least the boy is in touch with who and what he is. It is really time for other black men to start being honest with themselves and stop deceiving women, just to put up a front. And it is time our whole community stop being so immature about it. You don’t have to mimic or condone such behavior in your own life. But just be a lil bit more respectful and less dramatic when someone else is comfortable being honest about who they are. We are so extra with the h0m0ph0bia thing.

    • BlackPegasus

      Yep, you got that right!

    • Tayee

      I agree 100% You couldn’t have said it better.

    • Kiki

      I agree 100%. I can’t believe its 2014 and people act like someone being gay will affect their child’s sexuality smh

  • Equality??

    there should be an understanding about gay men and the bringing up their sexuality.(at this point) It should never be forced into the light as if its the correct and ok thing’ because it is not. Marriage is the union between a man an woman, period. there should be no “special treatment” or tax break for such ways. God has a plan…

    • DA-BIG-D

      Yup. He has a plan and black folks are the ones that follow it the least. Just look at the statistics.

        I can see you’re a man in your blurry little photoshopped avatar. A mess.

      • Tayee

        You sure your mama ain’t one?!

  • IDontTrustWhitePpl

    So. We have males in the industry who rapped about women a**es and p***y for a long time, and that wasn’t okay. Now we have this male in the industry who has kicked the door off the hinges rapping about men’s a**es calling it p***y. Nobody see’s nothing deadly wrong about this? Wow. Blatant disrespect toward himself, and everyone else–especially God. No more turned up its turned out.

    • you’sajoke

      I think you’ve got it backwards.

      • IDontTrustWhitePpl

        No. I know you and the rest of the supporters of man on man love got it backwards baby.

      • you’sajoke

        No, you don’t know who I am or what I support. Since when has rapping about women been NOT okay and men rapping about men IS okay? Like I said, you’re backwards. IDC

    • DA-BIG-D

      I remember some of our elders and older folks saying that this “rap” music was going to be the worst thing for black people and THEY WERE RIGHT! This started long before Fly Young Red.


    So he was gay then came out the closet..I don’t get it
