If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

Forget the haters, Frank Ocean! We're always Thinkin Bout You!
In a recent interview with D.J. Vlad, T-Pain opened up about the painful amount of homophobia still present in the rap world, and how Frank has been ostracized as a result:
"I think the radio is getting more gay friendly. I don't think Urban music is getting more gay friendly. If that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know n***as that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he's gay, but they need him on the f*cking song…It's in his f*cking genes man. It's not a f*cking choice. A man came out like that and you can't just f*cking disown this man because he's living a certain life that you don't f*cking approve of because somebody told you not to approve of it. If you wouldn't have been taught to not to approve of some sh*t like that then you would be f*cking okay with that."
What? That is SO messed up!
Whatever, Frank! If people don't want to work with you, just show them your two Grammys! Point is, you're so musically gifted, it's really their loss.
And thank you to T-Pain for standing up for what's right!
We hope that T-Pain's defense of Frank starts an honest dialogue in the rap community about the gross amount of homophobia still happening, and reinforces the idea that people should be judged by the quality of their music, not their sexual orientation.
