New York rapper Mysonne has reacted to R&B singer Frank Ocean recently coming out with his sexual preference and accused him of using the buzz to promote a new album.
Mysonne resorted to Twitter and unleashed his feelings on Ocean’s bi-sexuality announcement.
“i think these n*ggas is cowards that looking for exposure and buzzes, so they wait til albums drop to tell you there true Sexuality,’ he tweeted July 10th.
“Never mind that youve built a career off of obvious deceit and false hood, but people say its ok cuz he can sing. What happen to integrity?”
“What happened to judging a man by his character. There are no more boundaries or rules and this is why Suckas can Rule!”
“the fact that he’s gay means nothing to me and had he been real and i still liked his music i would support him, But fake sh*t is fake sh*t!” (Mysonne’s Twitter)
Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy recently shared a similar sentiment and said all closeted men should publicly reveal their sexuality.
Rapper Lil Scrappy believes gay men like Frank Ocean are the “doorway to AIDS” … and wants more closeted homosexuals to “come out” so it can’t be spread to straight people. Scrappy — who now stars on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” — was on “TMZ Live” this week to talk about Ocean’s revelation … when he explained why he completely SUPPORTS the R&B singer. “I’m glad that he came out … so all the real women that love to mess with real men, straight men, we can keep the AIDS situation down, you feel me?” Scrappy continued, “[homosexuality] is a doorway to AIDS, scientifically.” As for the facts, there is evidence that shows men who have sex with men are at an increased risk of contracting HIV. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, men who have sex with men accounted for 61% of all new HIV infections in 2009. Despite his opinions, Scrappy says he has no reservations about working with Ocean if the opportunity arises — telling us he would “jump on a track like it was yesterday.” (TMZ)
To music fans’ surprise, Ocean released his new Channel Orange album a week ahead of schedule today (July 10).
Then on Tuesday, another surprise — the Los Angeles singer’s major-label debut album “Channel Orange” would be available on iTunes a week before it was scheduled to land in stores. After a few listens, it feels as if it landed years ahead of time. At 24, Ocean shows a sure-footed confidence that took many of his forebears years to summon. But his songwriting chops shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s been following this guy’s young career. He released a lovely digital album last year, “Nostalgia, Ultra”; he’s helped pen songs for Justin Bieber, John Legend and Beyonce; he sang the most exquisite hook on Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s 2011 collaboration album “Watch the Throne”; and he’s made standout contributions as a member of the rowdy Los Angeles rap collective Odd Future.

Last week, Ocean released an open letter revealing his sexual preference.
“Whoever you are, wherever you are.. I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike,” writes Ocean in the letter. “Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to.” “We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide,” he wrote of a romance he shared with another man. “Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence..until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him.” (Frank Ocean’s Tumblr)
