When Young Thug arrived on the scene, he dazzled many of his poignant hooks. While he was able to grab listeners because of his infectious bangers, many began questioning the rapper’s sexuality. On numerous times, Thug has posted very cryptic messages, which were very eyebrow raising. While he does continue to call other men “bae”, he is constantly around his fiancee, Jerika Karlae. In any case, Thug’s behavior signifies his openness with his sexuality and in some instances, pokes fun at everyone who throws darts at him. Rappers are dressing very metro and are completely fine with it. A$Ap Rocky, Lil Wayne, Kanye West all dress very metro and have eluded all doubts of their sexuality over the years and in fact, are being dubbed fashion geniuses. It appears people are warming up to the idea of looking and even acting homosexual, but will the idea of being one, make its way through hip hop’s gates?
