Lil Nas X Feels “Bad” For DaBaby After Homophobia Controversy
Lil Nas X has said that he fells bad for DaBaby after the rapper faced backlash over homophobic comments he made back in July.
In a new interview with playwright Jeremy O Harris for GQ magazine, Nas and Harris discussed the role of hypermasculinity in the world of hip-hop, with Harris saying that he believes Nas is a part of the “hypermasculine breakdowns” that have been happening in the genre recently.
“I think that’s certainly true. I’m not going to lie, I feel bad for DaBaby. I hope he grows from it. I hope he’s able to. But I don’t know,” Nas replied.
“The whole landscape is very hypermasculine. It’s so great and so amazing that all these female rappers are breaking through. And, in a way, female rappers are the biggest rappers right now,” he added.
DaBaby received backlash over homophobic remarks he made during his set at the Rolling Loud music festival in July.
The rapper said onstage: “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light up.”
