OPENLY GAY RAPPER LASTO AND POP SINGER SOLOMON SPEAK OUT AGAINST EMINEM

 

Out musicians LastO and Solomon release statements in response to Eminem’s use of the word “faggot” in his new single, “Rap God.”

 

(New York, NY – October 23, 2013) – Openly gay rapper LastO and out pop singer Solomon respond to Eminem’s latest single, “Rap God” where the rapper rapidly raps, “I'll still be able to break a motherfuckin' table over the back of a couple of faggots and crack it in half.”


LASTO


LastO’s debut album, Where’s Vivian? was released yesterday. iTunes is currently featuring the album as one of this weeks, “Hot Indie Titles.”

“Song is lyrically and flow wise superb.  He’s a lil’ too old to be using gay and fag and shit as an insult; playground shit.  That may have been the effect he was going for.  He’ll run the ‘fag’ word and the ‘gay’ word ragged but he won’t never say nigger.  So, as irreverent and offensive as his brand is supposed to be... he still knows his line.  It’s ironic because I’m sure when he was coming of age more black folks walked over him/shitted on him/dogged him out than anyone gay ever did.” - LastO

SOLOMON

 

Solomon’s first single, “Swim No More” off his upcoming EP Le Garçon was released last week to glowing reciews from Out.com and EQMusicBlog.com.

“When he invited me on his radio station a few years ago I thought he put all of this aside. Granted, it’s not directed towards the gay community, but subconsciously it is. He’s using the word faggot to degrade another man. As if the worst thing a man can be is gay. What type of message does that embed into the minds of young kids, both gay and straight? It’s sad. Not so much for the gay community, as it is for a man in his forties who thinks its humorous to use the word faggot.” - Solomon
