Though the rapper Snoop Dogg, now Snoop Lion, has expressed his support of gay marriage in the past, the star says that being gay and being a rapper are incompatible.
According to TMZ, the star was asked about Frank Ocean's public coming-out and the influence that it could make to other aspiring gay rappers.
He responded, “Frank Ocean ain't no rapper. He's a singer. It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine.”
The star continued, “It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf----g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough."
The NY Daily News reports that he added, "I don't have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies.”
The rapper recently released a song with Miley Cyrus titled “Ashtrays and Heartbreak.”
Ocean has yet to respond to Snoop's words.
