Certain Rappers Won’t Work With Frank Ocean ‘Because He’s Gay’

During an interview with D.J. Vlad, T-Pain expressed annoyance with the constant use of "no homo" among his peers ("You don't have to say no homo after you say 'I want a hot dog!'"), adding that he knew of artists who avoided working with Frank Ocean because of the singer's sexuality: "I think the radio is getting more gay friendly. I don't think Urban music is getting more gay friendly. If that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs ... I know n***as who will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he's gay."
