During a recent interview rapper Wale discussed homosexuality in the Hip-Hop community. When asked if a gay person could be successful in the industry, Wale went on a rant that ultimately stated that being gay was an advantage. He then went on to use Frank Ocean as an example to make his point which became more and more twisted as he spoke.
