Lil Nas X isn't just openly gay -- he flaunts in a way no one has ever done in Hip Hop before.

He also gets dragged into the conversation anytime a DaBaby says something anti-gay.

However, as he tells Variety, he isn't prepared to address homophobia in Hip Hop because he's scared.

“The honest truth is, I don’t want to speak on a lot of the homophobia within rap because I feel like this is a very dangerous playing field,” he told the magazine when asked about the anti-gay statements from a variety of fellow rappers lately, including hateful statements from DaBaby that have gotten him booted from a number of festivals and sent his career into free fall. “It’s more for my own safety rather than anything else.”

Is LNX right to stay silent?
