If I was gay I would think hip-hop hates me
Many artists these days use words such as “gay, fag, faggot, and homo” in their music to refer to people they don’t like by emasculating them. In this example, these words are rarely used to refer directly to homosexuals but usually to people they think less of. Macklemore points out the problems with this later in the verse.
Brand Nubian MC Lord Jamar later issued an arguably homophobic response to this song on VladTV.
