ILoveMakonnen Declares Himself The First Gay Rapper Amid Lil Nas X Success: ‘I Started This Gay Sh*t’

On Monday (Nov. 8), iLoveMakonnen tweeted a series of tweets reminding fans that he was the first openly gay rapper.

He also tweet that he’s the reason there’s a lane for gay rappers “I’m the reason u gay” and “Ur timeline says otherwise sweetheart cus all I see is that gay shit” in response to somebody tweeting he did not do a good job introducing gayness to people.

iLoveMakonnen came out to the world in 2017, just three years after his breakout hit “Club Going Up on a Tuesday” and Drake’s remix “Tuesday.”

Makonnen explains that it is hard to be understood as a gay artist, “this gay shit is the hardest shit anyone could ever do. Like y’all don’t be understanding the days a gay be going thru. Shouts out to all my gays , I love u I see u and I am with u! Im always with u, I wouldn’t be who I am today without u. Know that trust and believe anything is possible! I am sending u love love love !”

He continues, “shouts out to all my gays , I love u I see u and I am with u! Im always with u, I wouldn’t be who I am today without u. Know that trust and believe anything is possible! I am sending u love love love !”
