T-Pain says he knows artists who won’t collaborate with Frank Ocean because he is gay.
Hip Hop music has long had its struggles with homophobia. From Eminem’s earlier controversial lyrics on the subject to the reaction to singer Frank Oceancoming out, Hip Hop music has often been considered as behind when it comes to accepting gays.
In a recent interview with Vlad TV, T-Pain touched on the subject and condemned those who try to over prove their sexual orientation. 
"I think it’s just niggas man," T-Pain said when asked about the time he compared himself to reality star Ray J. “You ever notice how homophobic niggas is all the time? It’s like, dude if you ain’t gay, then gay things shouldn’t bother you, gay people shouldn’t bother you. You ain’t going to get your ass pumped dude, ain’t nobody trying to look for you my nigga. You can say gay things but not be seen as gay. You don’t gotta say, ‘No homo.’ You ain’t gotta say, ‘I want a hot dog, no homo…’ Be comfortable with your manhood. We know you fuck bitches my nigga.”
The singer also talked about other’s relationship with his assistant, who is gay. He says people shy away from him when his assistant is present.
"I can see people not fucking with me because he’s there," T-Pain said. "It’s like, bro, you ain’t even got bitches, why do you think this gay dude going to like you? Bitches don’t even like you."
T-Pain also claims that the urban music community is not “gay-friendly” and says people will not collaborate with Frank Ocean because of his sexual orientation even though they would want him on their song.
"I think the radio is getting more gay-friendly," he said. "I don’t think urban music is getting more gay-friendly because if that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know niggas that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the fucking song and that’s so terrible to me man… What I do ain’t going to affect nothing that you got going on."

Ok, so my girl @readytostare has this movement going on, right? My shirt (her creation) says “I Woke Up Like Dis” and the objective is to share your personal story about why you’re flawless (See Beyoncé’s ‘Flawless’ for clarity). So here goes…

When I was a little girl, I was molested by a few male family members. I’ve been emotionally and mentally abused. I’ve been choked, dragged, and my life threatened by someone I loved. I’ve had an abortion I passed my baby’s arm a day after the procedure. My body had contractions for three days after this. I’ve been suicidal, felt like nothing, and wished to not wake up. I’ve seen some dark times and my mind often drifts to these moments.
And after all this, I’m STILL HERE. Still loving, living, and blessed immensely. My story is your story. All I do is for the pained souls out there who feel alone. You are NOT by yourself. You are beautiful and worthy and priceless. You are FLAWLESS. We woke up like this :) Join the movement. Grab a shirt and share your story. 

Love always, 

Mylissa
Sooooo should I still make this a shirt or nah? Yall still buying?
Somebody almost got away with my stuff. I almost let people (flawed, selfish, malicious creatures) steal my joy. Days of feeling ugly, worthless, suicidal, heartless, evil…those moments end now. My heart, though fragile from rough care, will always continue to love and grow. I will continue to do my best to spread love and light to all around me. I am flawed but I am worth it. No makeup, no fluff…just me and my smile. We’re here to stay.
