“To all the little dudes learnin’ to mack – the hottest girls got a gay in their clique, remember that.”
Also, pretty hair.
What do you think of Adair Lion‘s video for Ben?
Thanks be to his mother and to himself for accepting people as good regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation!
One of the most ‘positive’ rap tracks i have heard of in years, spoken by a former dj. Awesome track that should be seen by many.
That is Beautiful!!!
This is amazing! Great lyrics. On a side note, he kinda looks like Troy Polamalu.
Loved the rap… confused by the video. What’s up with the sexism?
I’m going to guess that he felt like he had to just remind everyone that he’s straight. I can’t come up with another reason since it had exactly zero to do with the video’s storyline.
Do you think it had something to do with the girls coming from a ‘bad’ background. That’s what I got out of the heavy make-up, exposed bra, and making out with men way to old to be playing with high school girls. Since he makes the statement at the end about not having a father, that might also be trying to say that girls without dads grow up to be slooty hoos. I’m not sure. To be honest, I was more confused as to why the little girl woke up alone with a hundred dollar bill and went around town trying to spend it. No one anywhere could break a hundred?
Its a three dollar bill. Based on the expression Queer as a 3 dollar bill.
this needs to be spread around and made viral
great rap the video reflects the elements of those he’s trying to reach.
Take a deep breath and relax.
So it’s a good song because he likes gay people…? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard in a longggg time. This song sucks… , and just because he likes (or at least doesn’t hate) gay people doesn’t make this song suck less.
It’s not ‘risqué’ to be okay with gay people in hip-hop anymore. A few examples include:
Lil B had the ‘audacity’ to entitle one of his mixtapes “I’m Gay”,
Kanye West compared the gay rights movement to the civil rights movement in a 2005 MTV interview,
HELLO Big Freedia? A hugeeee name in the underground NYC hip hop scene is A DRAG QUEEN.
A rapper with a message that you agree with doesn’t make that rapper good…
I thought it was really cool, but then, I’m a 71 yr old white gay man, so who am I to judge?
I freaking love this!
Wow, loved the lyrics. A positive message from rap, something I never thought I would say.
i love that he rhymed “homey” with “homey.”
let me offer some alternatives that could have been used instead of repletion:
So a straight Christian rapper from Texas writes a beautiful gay-affirming song and all you can think about is the fact that he happened to rhyme one word with the same word? Oi, loosen up and enjoy it.
“Why would I ever try to judge someone who’s tryin to be two of what I never had?”…..Cryin and happy
I agree, that line really got me.
@ Heather- You Cray Cray guurl
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING AND SHARING!!! MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT!!!!
It was a three dollar bill that the father gave to the little girl…
it’s from an old saying in texas that goes “that’s as queer as a three dollar bill”
the three dollar bill is a metaphor for the lgbt community… the little girl goes everywhere and her dollar isn’t accepted.
but it is accepted by the most unlikely candidate… hiphop (me).
The reason for the “sexism” was because often times the media villain-izes the lgbt community…. saying that they are immoral and not monogamous and perverted…
WELL… i wanted to REVERSE the rolls so … i wanted the heterosexual roll (ME) to be the pervert who was cheating on his girl and hooking up with a minor … while the gay couple was monogamous and pure and family oriented…. showing to the main media that their perceptions are wrong.
I APPRECIATE THE LOVE AND SUPPORT THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!
hope this cleared up some stuff
I caught the 3 dollar bill and the metaphor, but didn’t know the expression- thanks!
Thank YOU Adair for your love and support or our community. You created something pretty damn awesome!
You, sir, are a wonderful human being. THANK YOU FOR THIS.
This is so wonderful!!
This is such an inspirational song. The lyrics are quite meaning up and this video has deeper meaning than what it looks like. As Adair Lion said it himself in the comment. I give props to you Mr. Lion.
I’m not a big fan of the hip hop genre but this was good. Thank you. Maybe if the big stars start actually change their attitudes things could change quickly more given the popularity of hip hop and that is coming from a country western fan.
Thank you so much Adair… Im so proud that you stand with us on this.. I am bi and some even in the LGBT community may look down on me but I am me. I am so happy that someone has come out with a rap that is this incredible.. It means a lot to all of us. THANK YOU
I can not believe they have now banned the video on youtube because on copyright grounds… ugh
