Rick Ross On Gay Rappers, T-Pain's Claim That Artists Won't Work With Frank Ocean

Rapper Rick Ross sounded off on claims that hip-hop music was actually becoming less inclusive of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in a HuffPost Live interview this week.

"You can't tell nobody which direction to take their art," he said. "That's the beauty of being creative in this thing we call art."

The conversation turned to fellow rapper T-Pain, who recently claimed that some hip-hop artists were reluctant to work with Frank Ocean, the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter who revealed he had been in a romantic relationship with another man when he was 19.

Though Ross said he hadn't heard about T-Pain's remarks, he noted, "I feel your personal life is your personal life. In my personal life, you do whatever you do. That's your business."
