iLoveMakonnen hasn't had a hit in a while.
But he did make some news last month when he came out as gay.
It wasn't exactly a shocking revelation, as there had long been whispers about the 'Tuesday' rapper. But it still meant a lot to members of the LGBT community and its supporters, as Hip Hop isn't always the most gay-friendly medium.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the Migos were asked about Makonnen and the support he got for coming out.
Their answer is sure to cause some controversy.
"All are wildly different MCs, illustrating the 'diversity' that Quavo says is one of the things he most loves about Atlanta. And so I'm surprised by Migos' reaction when I mention iLoveMakonnen, the local MC who just came out as gay on Twitter. 'Damn, Makonnen!' Quavo bellows after an awkward interlude. I mention support I saw online for Makonnen's decision. 'They supported him?' Quavo asks, raising an eyebrow. 'That's because the world is fucked up,' says Offset. 'This world is not right,' Takeoff says. 'We ain't saying it's nothing wrong with the gays,' says Quavo. But he suggests that Makonnen's sexuality undermines his credibility, given the fact that 'he first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.' He frowns. 'That's wack, bro.'"What do you think?
Update: Migos have responded to the backlash:
