In case you haven’t noticed by now, A$AP Rocky is out to change the game. Apparently, this does not only imply a switch in music but also when it comes to the expansion of tolerance. On this note, the self-proclaimed “pretty mthrfckr” from Harlem sat down with Spinner to discuss the touchy subject of homophobia and questions some of the macho standards of conventional hip-hop.

“I don’t give a f— about your business. Man, if you’re gay we can be friends. If you’re straight, we can be friends…I really don’t give a fuck and I don’t think anyone should care about what another man’s preference is…As long as you’re a great person and, y’know, you don’t bother me and make me uncomfortable, then let’s be friends, dude.

[Hip-hop] needs to stop being so close-minded because that will just cause the genre to fail. Look at pop. Pop doesn’t discriminate against people. Look at Lady Gaga, y’know what I mean? Who the fuck makes the rules for hip-hop? Who the fuck dictates who’s cool and who’s not?”

What is your opinion on this subject matter?
