Homo Hop

Historically when homosexuality has come up in rap lyrics, it's been as a slur. But a new sub-genre of hip-hop by gay artists is starting to catch on. Rappers like Shorty Roc, Deadlee, and Melange Lavonne call it "homo hop," and they're fighting for acceptance among hip-hop heads and the LGBT community alike. Produced by Roy Hurst.
