Now THIS is exactly what we like to hear!
Dogg Lion has always been vocal in his support of the LGBT community, he recently raised some eyebrows during a recent interview by offering a very limited perspective on the possibility of homosexuality being accepted by the rap and hip-hop community!
However, it appears that the Reincarnated version of Bob Marley has re-evaluated his perspective on the matter, and in a new interview, now asserts that with the continuous merging of so many genres in the music world, as well as the political and cultural progression toward acceptance and unity, there may very well be openly gay rappers and hip-hop artists much sooner than later!
As he explains:
"In the near future it will happen because everybody is open for everything. It's so much race relations going on. It's so much unification going on in music and in life in general. We have people crossing up and becoming a part of each other's culture."
Times are changing, folks! What may have been unheard of even just two or three years ago is now HAPPENING!
Just look at the groundbreaking, brave Jason Collins, and what he will surely do for the professional athletic world!
We're just delighted to see that Snoop is open to educating himself and WILLING to consider alternative perspectives!
These are the ideals that will only continue to make the world the happier, more progressive, and EQUAL place we ALL deserve for it to be!
Thanks for taking a stand, boo!
