4. I'm Gay shows that hip-hop music and the rappers who create it are finally progressing and opening up their minds.
One year ago, five years ago, 20 years ago, a rap album called I'm Gay wouldn't fly—especially from a young, up-and-coming MC trying to make a name for himself. He would have been booed off stage, dissed by other rappers, and ultimately kicked out of the game one way or another. We don't expect Lil B to get love from every rapper and every rap fan out there, but so far, it feels like people have accepted his idea to call his next album I'm Gay and been open to the idea. That speaks volumes about how far along the hip-hop community is right now.
