Little gay-looking boy
So gay I can barely say it with a straight face, looking boy
He is saying that these rappers are so gay, he can’t even address them with a “straight face”.
Em uses the flow from Hotstylz’s record “Lookin' Boy”, a song released in 2007 featuring many references to figures in pop culture. Note how, for the next four lines, the beat changes to mimic a stereotypical southern “snap music” rap beat, which fits with Em’s references to Waka Flocka and Hotstylz.
Hotstylz did not take to this reference (or copying, apparently) kindly, making a diss track in response. Check out the full story and song here.
Em has always used slurs as insults, resulting in controversy. When several slurs in Rap God caused backlash, Em defended himself in an interview with Rolling Stone.
