Rapper Brandon “Lil B” McCartney, arguably the most controversial music artist of the year, is back in the press stirring up controversy. This time, Lil B sits down with CNN to discuss his critics, death threats and his to-be-released album titled “I’m Gay”.
CNN: What were you thinking when you named the album “I’m Gay?”
Lil B: It was something that was going through my mind for a while. I feel like I’m man of the people: meeting people, respecting people and accepting people. I hope that I can turn some of my fans that might be homophobic or supporters that might be homophobic and say, “You know what, we’re all one people. This is love.” It’s just respect, and I did that to bring people together and bring more love and to spark the minds of people and not let words and judgments and stereotypes stop you from loving.
