T Pain says some homophobic rappers are still refusing to work with Frank Ocean




T-Pain claims that homophobia is alive and well in the rap world and that that fact is evidenced by the fact that he says a number of rappers will not work with Frank Ocean since the singer revealed he was gay last year.

Speaking during an interview with Vlad TV T-Pain admitted that radio airplay was becoming "more gay friendly" but that was not the case for urban music itself; “I don’t think urban music is getting more gay-friendly because if that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know niggas that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the fucking song and that’s so terrible to me, man... What I do ain’t going to affect nothing that you got going on.”

In additional Frank Ocean news according to The Hollywood Reporter record label TufAmerica are alleging that one of the tracks from his Grammy winning Channel Orange album, [/i]Super Rich Kids[/i] contains an unauthorised sample from the 1992 Mary J. Blige track Real Love. The situation is complicated though. TufAmerica only own a 3.5% copyright to the Mary J track, due to a sample within a sample situation, as the original origin is a 1973 The Honeydrippers track called Impeach the President. Nevertheless it is that percentage they are claiming to be owed by Ocean's record label.
