Migos say trap star iLoveMakonnen lost credibility when he came out of the closet.
A few weeks ago, iLoveMakonnen caused a stir when he announced on social media that he is gay. Trap music kings Migos recently said in an interview with Rolling Stone that the wave of support for the "Tuesday" rapper's declaration "wasn't right."
"That's because the world is fucked up," said Offset.
Band mates Takeoff and Quavo too were in utter disbelief when they heard fans couldn't see the contradiction between doing trap music and loving men. To these aficionados of the ultra-masculine musical genre and lifestyle, iLoveMakonnen's revelation shot his credibility.
"We ain't saying it's nothing wrong with the gays," said Quavo, explaining that their fellow Atlantan "first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that. That's wack, bro."
While the trio spoke about the great diversity that exists in Atlanta hip hop, to them, there doesn't seem to be a place conceivably available for a gay trap star.
