I comprehend his factor in what he was trying to state. He said, 'I'm gay', [and] gay methods pleased. He's stated he's not a homosexual, however I believe it is mosting likely to be extremely hard for an artist to find out as well as claim they are homosexual in this climate. But, I likewise feel like maybe a really groundbreaking situation and also might also have a lot of support in the gay area. I believe [in reference to] Lil B, individuals think that it's a gimmick and I feel he's most likely mosting likely to have a lot of that support.\" (SOHH)

    \" Despite dancing musicians or big R&B musicians like Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, that has a big gay fan base, those are individuals that are going out and also purchasing the albums and also showing support,\" Yee added. \"So I feel like the same point might possibly occur for somebody like Lil B where the gay neighborhood could actually embrace as well as support him [whether he's gay or otherwise] It's a declaration that's made that has people speaking. It's like when Nas determined he intended to call his [2008] cd N * gger. It really did not exercise, but there was a significant uproar over that. I believe anything that produces discussion in our neighborhood is a good thing.\" (SOHH)
