Fly Young Red, Gay Rapper, Talks His Career And Sex

Openly gay rapper Fly Young Red made waves across the Internet last month with the release of his new video, "Throw That Boy Pussy."

The song has polarized popular opinion and sparked a larger conversation about openly gay rappers in hip-hop. In a recent interview with Da-Doo Dirty Show host DJ Baker, the rapper discussed his journey to being an openly gay rapper, his music and, of course, sex.

"I was rapping with a group and like I said they were straight and I mean, I don’t know, like I backed up for a minute," the rapper told Baker in the above video. "I’m a poet by nature so I never lost, you know what I'm saying, anything that I was doing, and it’s in my heart to do it, you know what I’m saying? So I kept up with it or whatever but I just started openly gay rapping in September."

In a previous interview with The Huffington Post, Fly Young Red stated that he specifically wrote "Throw That Boy Pussy" for gay men that like to go out to clubs.

"When I go to gay clubs and I look around I see a lot of gay guys dancing to songs that are made by straight rappers talking about females... I think females are beautiful, but I don't find them sexually attractive," he told The Huffington Post. "I like gay guys, so I made a song for gay guys to enjoy and dance to. I made it to play at gay clubs."
