The internet is buzzing after a short clip of a new track by rappers Eminem and Joyner Lucas surfaced titled, “What If I Was Gay?”

With Joyner’s debut studio album on the horizon, it’s widely expected the track will arrive on that release.

The short 13-second snippet, first reported by HipHopNMore, includes some provocative lyrics.

“What if I told you I was out of place? Wait, what if I told you I was gay?” raps Joyner.

Em counters back, “What if I’m a hypocrite who’s just afraid to face truth? Wait, what if I told you I’m gay too?”

Admittedly, there’s no context, but it’s certainly intriguing considering Eminem’s controversial history with the LGBTQ community.

The 15-time Grammy Award winner came under fire for using anti-gay slurs on several of his early tracks like “Marshall Mathers” in 2000 and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” in 2002.

In an attempt to hit the reset button, he appeared with Elton John at the 2001 Grammy Awards for one of the most memorable duets in Grammy history.

The two artists performed Slim Shady’s “Stan” with Elton at the piano crooning the Dido sample from the track as Em delivered the rap.

In a 2017 interview with Vulture, Eminem was asked about his homophobic lyrics:

The first time I got a taste of being called anti-gay was on ‘My Name Is’ when I said, ‘My English teacher wanted to have sex in junior high / The only problem was my English teacher was a guy.’ All I was saying was I don’t swing that way. So when I started getting flack for it, I thought, ‘Alright, you people think I’m homophobic? Watch this.’ I was trying to push the buttons of people who were calling me something that I wasn’t. The honest-to-God truth is that none of that matters to me: I have no issue with someone’s sexuality, religion, race, none of that.

This new track would be the second collaboration for Joyner and Eminem.

Eminem had previously teamed up with Joyner for “Lucky You” which was featured on Em’s 2018 studio album, Kamikaze.

Out Music: Cazwell “Duo Lingo”

Out rapper Cazwell‘s new music video, “Duo Lingo,” featuring Tom Bike and Mad Science, is a veritable Latin go-go buffet.

Cazwell says the inspiration for the collaboration came after “using the Duo Lingo app on his phone trying to learn Spanish and failing miserably.”

He’d been chatting with Tom Bike about working on a project together and thought a Spanish/English rap would be cool.

Filmed in West Hollywood’s FuBar, the music video features thong-clad adult performers like Beaux Banks, Fernando Figuero and Abel Pirela.

“I wanted to make sure the bar looked like a hole-in-the-wall dive bar, as grimy and as ratchet possible,” says Cazwell. “We all have a hustle. Some people get their hustle on social media or on the go-go box and some people do it on Wall Street. I respect everyone’s grind. These boys have a lot of discipline and work very hard.”

I previously covered Cazwell’s “No Selfie Control” music video here.

UPDATE: Sanders Campaign Says Anti-Gay “Rap” Intro Video Is Faked

UPDATE: Looks like I, and many major LGBT bloggers got punked. And I have to say, my first instinct was to ignore the story. But major sources I trust posted it, so I jumped. My bad.

The Sanders campaign, speaking to Chris Johnson of the Washington Blade says the video is a fake.

Warren Gill, a Sanders spokesperson, said when asked by the Washington Blade to comment on whether the candidate would condemn the music the video “has been doctored.”

“Someone ripped the music from this video and placed it over Sanders’ entrance,” Gill said.

The campaign shared footage with the Blade of a video it says is from the same rally in which no homophobic music is played, but the same two individuals who introduce Sanders are dressed in the same clothes as they greet the candidate on the stage.

First, Sen. Bernie Sanders got in hot water with the LGBT community over misrepresenting his meeting with HIV/AIDS activists.

Now, he has further inflamed LGBT activists over video footage showing him entering a campaign rally this week to the strains of DMX’s “Where The Hood At?”

Why the fury? Isn’t rap cool?

Mmm, maybe not so much when it’s a homophobic/transphobic track that calls out “homo thugs” and more.

Check the lyrics to the song:

Man, cats don’t know what it’s gonna be
Fuckin with a nigga like me, D-to-the-M-to-the-X
Last I heard, y’all niggaz was havin sex, with the SAME sex
I show no love, to homo thugs
Empty out, reloaded and throw more slugs
How you gonna explain fuckin a man?
Even if we squashed the beef, I ain’t touchin ya hand
I don’t buck with chumps, for those to been to jail
That’s the cat with the Kool-Aid on his lips and pumps
I don’t fuck with niggaz that think they broads
Only know how to be ONE WAY, that’s the dog
I know how to get down, know how to BITE
Bark very little, but I know HOW TO FIGHT
I know how to chase a cat up in the tree
MAN, I GIVE Y’ALL NIGGAZ THE B’INESS FOR FUCKIN WIT ME, IS YOU CRAZY?!?

The clip below shows Sanders entering the rally accompanied by the song. The clip cuts out before the homophobic lyrics.

Daniel Radcliffe Can Rap – Who Knew?

On last night’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Daniel Radcliffe revealed that he a big fan of rap music due to “an obsession with memorizing complicated, lyrically intricate and fast songs.”

Fallon then threw down the gauntlet with a challenge to Radcliffe to attempt Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.”

Radcliffe jumps right in – with an American accent no less.
