Offset: “I Cannot Vibe With Queers” + The Problematic Black Community

Offset of the Migos has a line in the song where he states, “I cannot vibe with queers”. Now as a black gay male, I can completely understand how hanging out with the gay community can sometimes be overwhelming. But the statement made was derogatory and offensive. Personally, I don’t give a fuck who Offset hangs with, but to offend the people that support you and root for your is just dumb. Gay people bumped Migos’ songs, and now it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a backlash. How do you say you can’t vibe with queers, when your whole vibe is “queer”? Every time we see you, you are dressed like a young gay man trying to make a fashion statement with your blouse. Since being attacked, Offset has attempted to “apologise”, and he attempted to spin it and say that he’s not talking about the gay community…..but that sounds like a poorly written, PR attempt that is full of grammatical errors. He can save it.

I haven’t blogged in a while, because I haven’t really found much interesting to form an opinion on. But in this instance, I have to speak out. Lets dive in.

In the video above, Offset of the Migos has a line in the song where he states, “I cannot vibe with queers“. Now as a black gay male, I can completely understand how hanging out with the gay community can sometimes be overwhelming. But the statement made was derogatory and offensive. Personally, I don’t give a fuck who Offset hangs with, but to offend the people that support you and root for your is just dumb. Gay people bumped Migos’ songs, and now it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a backlash. How do you say you can’t vibe with queers, when your whole vibe is “queer”? Every time we see you, you are dressed like a young gay man trying to make a fashion statement with your blouse. Since being attacked, Offset has attempted to “apologise”, and he attempted to spin it and say that he’s not talking about the gay community…..but that sounds like a poorly written, PR attempt that is full of grammatical errors. He can save it.

This statement however leads to the problem with the black community. Not the whole community, however, a vast majority of it. What the black community seems to do is want inclusion in America, while excluding certain groups of people. For many males, if you are a gay black female, you are celebrated. But when you are a gay black male, all of a sudden we are a disgrace, we had to have some traumatic rape that changed out lives, we aren’t respected as men and so much more. And from females, we are treated as accessories. We are fun to hang with, party with, and do all of those things, but once you realize the power that gay black males possess, there’s a lot of jealousy, hate and anger towards the black gay males. Meanwhile, a vast majority of black females today want to be gay black males.

The problem with this statement is that it is equivalent to a white person saying, “I can not vibe with [N-Word]”. That will get your blood boiling a little bit won’t it? One of my main issues with the black community, is that we are quick to categorize and discriminate against each other. Eventually black people will have to understand that gay is the new black. The same way blacks fought for their right to vote in 1965, gays were fighting for the right to marry. The same way blacks are outraged at the police brutality because of the color of their skin, gays were outraged at all these hate crimes because of who and how we love. Black people want the world to cry every time a black person is killed at the hands of the police, but were the main people saying the Pulse nightclub incident was ok and made jokes. If the black community as a whole would learn to see us for our similarities and not our differences, we could get a lot further in our journey.

Album Review: Chris Brown releases “Breezy”

Published

By

Let me start out by saying, as a member of Team Breezy, Chris Brown simply missed his mark on revisiting his debut sound. This is something he said we could expect from this album. None the less, the album is still nothing short of fire.

23 tracks are included in the standard edition of the album, and it’s giving you nothing short of the Chris Brown experience. Some songs and subjects can come across as repetitive subject matter wise and lack depth, while others are sure fire hits.

Stand out tracks on first listen for me are, Possessive (feat. Lil Wayne & Bleu), Pitch Black, Sex Memories (feat. Ella Mai), Sleep At Night, and Til The Wheels Fall Off (feat. Lil Durk and Capella Grey).

Get into the album below:

Oktum Releases Debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’

Oktum is a Hatian born & raised producer who is truly ready to take over House Music with the release of his long awaited debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which truly has been a labor of love. Now although this is his first music release, he’s definitely not new to music. The talented composer grew up engulfed in music as he listened to his fathers music in Haiti as a celebrated musician playing guitar for the band Les Shleu Shleu. As a kid he would listen to so many different genres of music with some of his inspirations ranging from Franz Schubert, Frédéric Chopin, Bob Marley to Dr.Dre and Thievery Corporation. As a teen he was introduced to the idea of production with FL Studios but navigating   a promising career in music seemed far fetched while living in Haiti at a time when crime and kidnappings were at an all time high. Oktum would go on to move to the U.S. living in Illinois and in NYC but unfortunately his passion for music didn’t follow him as the years went on. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles where he truly felt like he could finally get back into music. In 2019 something clicked and he slowly but surely began to tap back into his sound which has evolved tremendously. As he continued to work on his music the world was rocked by the Corona Virus outbreak but what most would consider a setback was truly the opportunity he needed to focus on his music. Now he is finally ready to embark on this new journey with the release of his debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which features 5 hard hitting tracks which is sure to get house music lovers on the dance floor. Get into the project below which is just a taste of so much more to come.
