Kanye West’s protege Frank Ocean — from the rap group Odd Future — has just declared he is gay … or bisexual.
The revelation makes him the first hip hop star to publicly address a sexual attraction to men.
Ocean — who collaborated with Kanye and Jay-Z on “Watch the Throne” — posted the long, dense message on his Tumblr this morning, writing, “Four summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too.”
“We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile.”
“Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with.”
He added, “I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore … I feel like a free man.”
There has been a lot of intolerance in the hip hop world toward gays and bisexuals, so Frank’s disclosure has enormous importance. It will be a bellwether for other stars who are considering coming out.
Frank’s Odd Future band mate Tyler the Creator tweeted after Frank posted the message, writing, “My Big Brother Finally F***ing Did That. Proud Of That N***a Cause I Know That Shit Is Difficult Or Whatever.”
