In a sit-down with Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club, Trick Daddy gave one of the most interesting, yet also ignorant, interviews of the year.
The hip hop vet discussed a wide range of topics, ranging from the differences between today’s hip hop vs. old school hip hop, women, violence, his new spices company and even Vivica A. Fox’s beef with 50 Cent. But the most striking moments occured when he shared his thoughts on the LGBTQ community.
“Now little girls in elementary school and junior high are talking about they’re gay and little boys talking about they’re gay. No. That wasn’t how I grew up,” Trick said. He also admitted that he isn’t for the “gay TV shows that’s coming on national television.”
Before he started speaking on this, I was actually with him. The issues he was addressing beforehand–like the issues people from the hood face–really made me think he was dropping some great knowledge. But he completely lost me after this ignorant statement. Outdated thinking is outdated thinking, and just because you were raised with it doesn’t make it right. He even said that he wasn’t homophobic, which makes absolutely no sense given his first comment.
It’s sad that a respected rapper like Trick can say such horrible things, especially about his own hip hop community. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that he was referencing shows like VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood and Out In Hip Hop. It’s people like him that show why we need these shows that try to expand people’s views on the LGBTQ community.
But that’s not all, folks. Trick went in for the kill when he started on Caitlyn Jenner. “No matter what, Caitlyn, you still are Bruce to me,” he said for the record.
It’s almost 2016. It’s about time these old heads finally gain some wisdom and grow up. If you want to hear Trick’s less-than-smart comments for yourself, watch the video below.
