Fat Joe Thinks “The Gay Mafia” Owns Hip-Hop

In a recent interview with VladTv, Bronx native, Fat Joe was questioned on his views regarding homosexuality. He revealed his open-mindedness on the topic and urged people to embrace who they are, even if they are members of the historically homophobic Hip-Hop industry.

Joey Crack spoke passionately about the assumed plight of gay people in the rap world and admitted that he has most likely worked with gay people in the past: “Yeh, I’m pretty sure I’ve done songs with gay rappers. I’m pretty sure of that.”  In reference specifically to Hip-Hop, he remarked: “It’s the greatest gay market in the world.” 

Fat Joe described how he believes the industry is owned by gay people: “The hip-hop community is most likely owned by gay, to be honest with you. They’re owned by gay. I happen to think there’s a gay mafia in hip-hop. Not rappers. You know, the editorial presidents of magazines, the PDs at radio stations, the people who give you awards at award shows. This is a f—ing gay mafia, my man.”

He concluded his stance on the subject with a remark about the importance of being yourself in this modern-day era: “I think it’s 2011, going on 2012, I think if your gay, rep yo’ set.”
