Rapper Trick Trick has come forward with a blatantly homophobic and outright anti-gay statement this week regarding the release of his new album — which he believes is exclusively for a heterosexual audience.
It sounds like someone’s got some seriously unresolved issues that he needs to examine.
In the meantime, he should also realize that hate speech and hateful music isn’t going to earn him anyone’s respect.
Perhaps a boycott of his album is in order?
Longtime Eminem collaborator Trick Trick probably lost a few fans this week when he announced that he doesn’t want gay people to buy his new album, The Villain. In a recent interview with Allhiphop.com, Trick Trick said: “I don’t want your faggot money any g**damn way. I don’t like it. Carry that sh*t somewhere else.” Trick Trick specifically called out openly gay celebrities Rosie O’Donnell and Ellen DeGeneres on a song called “Trick Trick,” in which he threatens to send a “scud missile right through their f**king cruise ship.” He added: “It’s just that every time that you turn on the TV, that sissy sh*t is on. And they act like its f**king okay. The world is changing for the worst when sh*t like that happens. And I address that issue. I address it hard as hell.”
Trick’s new album, The Villain, is in stores now. I don’t recommend it to anyone, gay or straight.
