The Rapper: Erick Sermon
What He Said: During a February 2012 interview with Vlad TV, the EPMD rapper said that he doesn't think there are any gay rappers. His reasoning? Being a rapper (or a pro athlete) and being homosexual don't mix. "No," he said when asked if thought there are any gay rappers. "It's the same when you talk about sports players, too. We don't know if that's going to ever happen because that's like a curse to be in sports and to be gay and be in hip-hop and be gay. You can't be on a basketball team, a football team, and be homo, and be rapping like, 'Yo, yo.' N*ggas will kill you."
