Openly gay rapper Fly Young Red has never been one to be bashful about his sexuality. Even on the heels of his infamous internet smash “Throw That Boy P***y”, the news of his signing is sure to send shockwaves throughout the entertainment world.
With such blatantly vulgar and homosexually charged lyrics, an industry power-move such as his YMCMB signing is shocking as well as groundbreaking. When asked for a comment, Young Money capo Lil’ Wayne stated, “Good music is good music. Gay, straight, black, white, blue, or purple. Good music is just good music. Have you ever been in the club when that joint came on? Niggas go crazy when that drop. I had to make him YMCMB.”
Asked for his thoughts on the signing, Cash Money headman Birdman stated, “I support everything my young’n do. Young’n brought Red into the boardroom, we met behind closed doors, we spoke like men, we handled business like bosses. We ended up making him a offer he couldn’t refuse. It’s YMCMB forever, ya dig? We support Red movement and what he tryna accomplish. We definitely support the movement. Throw that boy p***y.”
Requests for a statement from Fly Young Red were declined.
Fly Young Red did speak about the controversial song in a recent interview with Huffington Post, saying:
“I decided to make this video for lots of reasons. When I go to gay clubs and I look around I see a lot of gay guys dancing to songs that are made by straight rappers talking about females… I think females are beautiful I but I don’t find them sexually attractive. I like gay guys, so I made a song for gay guys to enjoy and dance to. I made it to play at gay clubs. I never wanted this song on the radio at all — I’m not trying to push a gay agenda on the African American race or turn young black youth gay. This music is not for either of them. All I wanted to do was make a song for the gay people that like hip hop to dance to. That’s it.”
Lil Wayne has confirmed a remix to the track, which will feature Nicki Minaj and Drake.
