There are a few Rappers like Tyler, the Creator, and Lil Nas X, who did come out. But many rappers are rumoured to be gay. The newest one to be hit with the rumour is A$AP Rocky.
A$AP Rocky has made a name for himself in the hip-hop and mainstream music. But this time he’s making headlines for different reasons. His sexuality is questioned this time; rapper SpaceGhostPurrp claims that A$AP is gay.
SpaceGhostPurrp, on March 26th, tweeted that in 2011, A$AP invited him to his pool party in New York. It was a pool party, and allegedly, A$AP hit on him. He revealed that he rejected the advances A$AP made. Consequently, he is hated by all the rappers and the so-called “A$AP Mob”.
He added: “SO IF U WANNA KNOW WHY ‘ASAP ROCKY AND ASAP and EVERY RAPPER’ HATE ME it’s because I stopped hanging with him because he didnt tells me that he was homosexual on da low.” The tweet has been deleted, but screenshots were already captured. He feels that A$AP lied about his life, and got him blacklisted in music to keep his secret.
Of course, fans responded instantly. One fan pointed out that numerous rappers are calling SpaceGhostPurrp a “Snitch” and that he just proved those rappers right. Some even went to call him a Homophobe, because outing someone isn’t a “Power move”.
Few fans brought receipts. There were tweets showing pictures of the rapper trying to kiss A$AP.

Shortly after the accusations, Space’s twitter was suspended. Twitter claimed that he “Violated the twitter rules.”
Azealia Banks has also had similar claims
In 2013, Bank also took to Twitter, which was later deleted, that A$AP was gay. She claimed that A$AP had a sexual encounter with a man named “Kenneth”.
IN 2013, when he was asked about the rumours, he avoided the question and said he couldn’t understand why so many rappers were homophobic, A$AP added that it’s a shame that such a topic still excites people. He was disappointed.
It is strange that in today’s world, revealing someone’s closet sexuality makes people feel superior. It should be the individual’s choice to disclose his sexuality on his/her terms. What are your thoughts on the subject?
