Kendrick Lamar has joined a growing list of rappers supporting President Barack Obama’s views on gay marriage.

“I don’t give a f**k about people doing what they gotta do. That’s your lifestyle, you dig what I’m saying?” he said in a recent interview with DJ Drama. “People gonna be they own individuals and have they own worlds and I can’t knock it.”

According to BET News, the “ADHD” rapper would not knock on anybody’s sexual orientation in the same way he wouldn’t hate on another’s religious beliefs.

“If you didn’t believe in Jesus I can’t knock you for not [believing], you got your own beliefs and your own morals. I can’t help the way you was born if you was gay. And I can’t change that so do what you gotta do to be happy.”

The TDE emcee also spoke about the artists he’s keeping his ear to and working on his debut album Good Kid in a Mad City. Watch the full interview below.
