“If two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want.” - Eminem on gay marriage
The New York Times Magazine
Contrary to what a lot of his music may portray, Eminem is much more tolerant of homosexuality these days. He showed this when he was asked where he stood on gay marriage. At the same time, it's clear he's not that keen on the idea of marriage itself!
“When people say you can do whatever you want, I really thought that shit was corny, until this moment right now. Like, that’s when I say, ‘I’m a fucking unicorn,’ people are fucking confused. I’m a fucking unicorn, and you’re not going to tell me I’m fucking not. I’m a fucking table. I’m a fucking table, and you can literally be whatever you fucking want, as long as you believe that’s what you are.” - Tyler the Creator
The Wonderful Adventures Of Odd Future At SXSW 2011
You won't really be too surprised to read that this quote was from Tyler The Creator. He gives us his own personal interpretation of being told "you can be whatever you want to be".
“Police suck dick. That’s what the fuck they do – they suck dick. It is what it is. Me? I’m not a criminal, I’m not a criminal. I’m not out here committing [this and that,] crimes and shit. I drive my fucking car. I have a car – I drive it. Oh – you wanna pull me over and lock me up? Man, do what you do homie – but I’ll be right back out doing the same fucking thing I was doing eight hours ago. So, fuck you!”
DMX went on a bit of rant in this interview, over the distrust that he has for the po-po, and how they have generally been a pain in the ass for him.
“I took a girl home from the club…first time I ever met her and I was ‘pissy drunk.’ I wake up and I’m like 'I know I didn’t pee on myself'…You gotta think quick in this scenario. So I run to the bathroom, I get a cup of water, and I sit down on the bed and act like the water spilt in the bed.” - Cam'ron
It's good to know that sometimes even your favorite rappers can have that embarrassing moment where their swag goes completely out window.

Waka Flocka delivered a pretty hilarious interview here, and we discovered how one of life's great mysteries keeps Waka wide awake at night.
"Man, fake ass is like this (knocks on a wooden chair). Yeah it will break your back, no bounce back, it’s like you hit a wall, like this (taps wooden chair). You see what I’m saying? You gotta get slow motion on them. You can’t pound! No way, not ever. Not ever, you’ll break your spinal!" - French Montana
French Montana gave us the low down on dealing with women with fake asses (quite literally), so you don't have to.

"My mom and Wiz’s [Khalifa] mom are best friends, they hang out and get high together" - Mac Miller

"On average, how much do you smoke in a week?"
Snoop Dogg: “81 blunts a day x 7”
Reddit AMA Chat
Snoop Dogg was "bluntly" honest when he was asked by a fan how much weed he smokes on a weekly basis. The figure was 81 (yes 81) blunts per day. We're just wondering how he keeps count whilst high!
Jonathan Ross: "When did you start selling drugs?"
50 Cent: "At 12. Even at 12 you have to live by your parents rules. You can’t just be out hustlin’. I had my grandparents think I was enrolled in an after school program"
Jonathan Ross Show
50 Cent showed no shame in admitting he was drug dealing at the age of 12, but then again, if you listen to his music, it's common knowledge. He was also very shockingly open about pulling the wool over the eyes of his grandparents so he could sneak out to sell drugs.
"You wanna know something? Usually the police come looking for me man, you know, just for murder - because I kills the pussy" - A$AP Rocky
Noisey - Kathy Griffin X A$AP Rocky - Back & Forth
Ever the charmer, who can forget some of the classic lines that A$AP Rocky pulled out of the bag when he dealt with the fiesty Kathy Griffin for Noisey's "Back & Forth." We can always trust on A$AP to be corny and hilarious at the same damn time.
"I feel like the people who are in control of what hip hop does is so fucking white and so fucking Jewish and so they don't give a fuck about what the culture or the craft really is about. Let me say this right because I want this to be as offensive as I can make it for these old ass punks running these record labels" - Scarface
Scarface gave us quite a controversial opinion here about the current state of hip hop. He didn't hold back when letting people know his feelings, even if it did ruffle several feathers.
"I had to stop [crowd-surfing]. On my tour I only do 200 seaters, but I still have to have barriers because people try to finger me. They think I’m really slutty, like ‘Oh, she got a song called 'Pu$$y,' I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers.’ Why would I want a stranger to ever finger me." - Iggy Azalea
Iggy revealed some of her fans were getting too up close & personal with her during her shows, thus preventing her from crowd-surfing.
"Me and Virgil [Abloh] are in Rome, giving designs to Fendi, over and over, and getting our designs knocked down … [We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said 'no.' How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?!"
Zane Lowe Radio 1
Kanye has had numerous worthy quotes from his interview over time, so we definitely couldn't leave him off this list. This line really brings home the importance of the leather jogging pant in Yeezy's heart.
"I'm me and I do what the fuck I want to do and I'm going to keep doing what the fuck I want to do. And if syrup is what the fuck I want to do [shakes cup of syrup and takes a sip], I'm gonna do it until I cant do it no more ...And if you are worrying about me, I promise to God I appreciate it but keep your worries and worry about more important things like yourself. I swear I get on my knees every night and day. I'm fine" - Lil Wayne

The always on-trend 2 Chainz was given the opportunity to shout out his favorite designers in this interview. But instead, he used it as a chance to have a little moan about the lack of freebies he'd been getting. It's hard being a rapper sometimes...
HotNewHipHop takes a look at some of the wildest, funniest and randomest things that hip hop artists have said in various interviews.
You can never really expect what will come out of a rapper's mouth at any given moment. Hip-hop is a genre that is known for its unbridled, outspoken nature so it is really no surprise that the artists in the genre bring us some very hilarious quotables when they sit down for an interview.
Whilst we love rappers for their grind and the dope music they give us, sometimes the things that they say just make us scratch our heads. Nevertheless, we salute them for constantly keeping us surprised, entertained and, at times, confused.
