Rapper Makonnen Comes Out As Gay On Twitter

There was once a time in hip-hop when homophobia ran rampant in the genre but now, more and more rappers are beginning to be open about their sexuality.

In 2012, singer Frank Ocean penned a coming out letter and on Wednesday, rapper Taylor Bennett, the brother of Chance The Rapper, announced he was bisexual. Now, ILoveMakonnen, famous for his hit song “Tuesday,” has revealed he is gay.

The Atlanta artist took to Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning to make the announcement. “As a fashion icon, I can’t tell u about everybody else’s closet, I can only tell u about mine, and it’s time I’ve come out,” he tweeted. Following his announcement, fans of the artist tweeted their support with one Twitter user writing, “It takes a strong person to be open abt (sic) about something like this. I love you bro. I’m always in your corner.”
