Lost Episode #2: The Gay Rapper Episode


We take a look at the sub-culture of LGBTQ hiphop. Our conversation features a discussion on Cakes da Killa, Myki Blanko, Leif, and Cazwell. And discuss a little-known rapper named Caushun  from the early 2000s who was dubbed to the first openly gay rapper who never put out an album.

We start off with the mainstream Macklemore song, Same Love, as a touchpoint to discuss homophobia within the genre. We talk about homophobia, male rompers, and gay sex in lyrics. Then bridge the discussion to recent conversations about mainstream mainstays like Tyler the Creator and Frank Ocean and the expression of their sexuality.

Check below for some great creative music and visuals.
