In this corner we have Pause. The origins of "pause" is unkown but it is widely considered to be the precursor of "No homo". Heard as far back as Jay'z's "Reasonable Doubt" album, "pause" is a way to stop the conversation when you believe that you have said something blatantly homosexual. The pros of saying "pause" is that it is more dignified and subtle then blurting out "no homo" in a savage like manner. However, it still gets the job done and alleviates you of any homosexual thoughts. The following video is an example of how "pause" is used by the more gentlemen sect. FF to about 20 seconds and watch this young man giving a interview with Spike Lee and politely pauses something homosexual that Spike said.

In this corner we have No Homo. It may be true that "no homo" was not invented by the Diplomats but one thing is for certain, they made the term popular amongst the youth. No homo is the antithesis of "pause". It is not subtle at all, it is brash and directly to the point. The pros include a very assertive, aggressive affirmation that you are not a homosexual. The term is used by young men who are confident and talkative. Check out the term's biggest supporter Cam'ROn below.

what year where these two terms born, "...all my *****s that say pause after they say some fucked up shit" - Jay-z circa 1996 is the earliest I heard a rapper use it.

"The term is used by young men who are confident and talkative."

The people who actually use say "no homo" are the ones who are insecure and make sure everybody knows about their sexuality.

Pause is awkward as hell to use. But no homo is just stupid to say. Like Jadakiss said, "A real man shouldn't have to say no homo." Dudes need to stop thinking about how to make every little comment homo unless it's blatantly obvious that it was a gay comment.

i used to say pause but not like that. instead of saying "hold up" or "wait a minute" i just say pause. that was back before my balls dropped. so around when micheal phelps earned his 1000th gold medal.
