“I kind of revealed [it],” he told the interviewers of his recent tweets.
Asked what he had revealed, he responded, “That I am gay.”
“It’s something I was considering never doing, ever. Taking to the grave. But I don’t wanna live my entire life—especially how I got to where I’m at—not doing what I wanna do.”
X went on to say homosexuality is “not really accepted in either the country [or] hip-hop communities,” but that he hoped he was “opening doors” for people.
