A rapper who said he doesn’t want “faggot money” has provoked a furious reaction from gay hip hop stars.

In an interview with All Hip Hop earlier this week promoting his latest album, performer Trick Trick said:

“I’ma go on the record right now with this. Homosexuals are probably not gonna like this album.

“I don’t want your faggot money any goddamn way. I don’t like it. Carry that shit somewhere else.”

The Villain was produced by Eminem. In it he refers to lesbian stars Ellen Degeneres and Rosie O’Donnell as “dyke bitches.”

He also expresses a desire to attack the cruises for gay families organised by Ms O’Donnell with a Scud missile.

Camilo Arenivar, founder of OutHipHop.com and the HomoRevolution Tour Manager, said:

“I really can’t get past the fact that Trick Trick calls himself that name.

“With all of the homework he did on Rosie’s cruises and gay adoption, he should have found out that a ‘trick’ is a word heavily used in the gay community to describe what a gay hustler turns to make a buck.”

Los Angeles-based ‘homothug’ rapper/actor Deadlee said he was torn on how to deal with someone like Trick Trick.

“My first thought is to get crazy and warn him that this faggot will kick his ass — but I am so on cloud 9 with Obama winning, and the way he did it,” he said.

“Obama was called a terrorist, unpatriotic, and the entire time kept his cool, I so wish I was like that.

“I know who I am and my self worth that I really don’t give a f**k who or what a TRICK TRICK has to say.

“I also know with the passage of Prop 8 in California, there is still a lot of hate against gays, and a TRICK TRICK just perpetuates the hate.

“He is threatening to kill gay people in his lyrics and that’s where he goes too far.”

Lesbian MC Melange Lavonne, the hostess of forthcoming LGBT Hip Hop Reality Show, said she was shocked an African-American would speak in the same “degrading hurtful way” that black people were treated.

“In a time where we just elected our first Black President Barack Obama and where we face change in a country that has had a history of lynchings, racial violence, hate crimes, and discrimination, this African American man is going to say disgusting things against human beings in the same degrading hateful way that whites said about African American in the days of injustice,” she said.

“I’m proud of my country and proud that the majority of our nation wants change, peace and equality for all.

“Trick Trick is only the minority and not the majority anymore. Gays are your doctors, your lawyers, your CEO’s, your teachers, your neighbours, your relatives.

“Judging from his mediocre rap skills, I am sure that this is just a publicity stunt to boost album sales from an already garbage album that won’t even be seen on the Soundscan radar.

“With his hate speech I think he would be an awesome VP when Sarah Palin runs for the 2012 Presidential election.

“Trick Trick can spew all the hate he wants, but gays are not longer perceived as punks, sissies or wimps. We are fighting for equality and if that means that our life is on the line then so be it.

“We are willing and ready to die for our cause, I hope with his hate and anyone who supports and backs him, that they are willing to die for theirs, these are not the days of sit down and shut-up anymore, but a national movement that is bigger and more motivated than his small feeble minded thinking could’ve ever imagined.”

All Hip Hop reports that Trick Trick has been unavailable for further comment.

His album features Eminem on the track Who Want It and Let It Fly features Ice Cube. 50 Cent also appears on the album.
