MEGAN THEE STALLION SPEAKS ON HIP HOP HOMOPHOBIA FOLLOWING DABABY’S HIV CONTROVERSY

HOUSTON, TX – Homophobia has, sadly, been an ever-present problem in Hip Hop since the genre’s early days. DaBaby’s remarks about HIV, AIDS, and gay people during his Rolling Loud Miami performance on July 25 are just the latest example.

Ask Megan Thee Stallion, and she’ll tell you it’s time for Hip Hop to address its homophobia problem.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Tina Snow threw her support behind the LGBTQ+ community and talked about the importance of representation, compassion, and acceptance in rap.

She didn’t mention DaBaby by name in the conversation, but her comments were likely in response to the controversy surrounding the North Carolina rapper, who continues to face backlash for his seemingly homophobic comments.

“It is about time,” Megan said. “Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/ua4kITchzYI?enablejsapi=1&origin=https:%2F%2Fhiphopdx.com

Despite cultivating a successful collaborative partnership on songs such as “Cash Shit,” “Cry Baby” and “Nasty,” Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby’s relationship appears to have soured in recent months due to his affiliation with Tory Lanez, who was accused of shooting Megan in both feet during an altercation in July 2020.

In June, Megan and DaBaby were involved in a heated Twitter exchange following DaBaby’s appearance in Tory’s “SKAT” video. Then, DaBaby brought out the Canadian rapper as a surprise guest during his Rolling Loud Miami performance in July, which left Megan and her team “very upset,” according to TMZ.

Tory Lanez was charged with felony aggravated assault last October for allegedly shooting Megan. He was also hit with a restraining order, which forbids him from coming within 100 yards of the Houston rapper.
