Asap rocky is very well known for being homophobic.

A$AP is not all known for being homophobic. Prior statements he has made:
(From an article in Spinner.)

"I don't give a f--- about your business," ASAP Rocky tells Spinner. "Man, if you're gay we can be friends. If you're straight, we can be friends. I'm not gay, I don't plan on being gay, I don't condone it and I'm not sayin' I'm against it. I really don't give a f--- and I don't think anyone should care about what another man's preference is... unless he's interested, if you know what I'm sayin'."

ASAP Rocky's quick to point out that he's an ardent heterosexual (he's reportedly dating LA rapper Iggy Azalea). But it shouldn't matter if he wasn't.

"Who gives a f---?" he continues. "I like women. I love women. I'm not going to not be your friend because you like men. As long as you're a great person and, aside from that, y'know, you don't bother me and make me uncomfortable, then let's be friends, dude.

"It doesn't matter. You don't see people for being gay. People need to leave gay people the f--- alone. Like, who cares? If you still care about s--- like that you need to just hang yourself like the rest of them KKK motherf---ers. For real. Who gives a f---?"

What bothers ASAP Rocky most is that he figures things like homophobia are bad for his music.

"I'm not saying that hip-hop needs gay rappers or anything," he says, "but they need to stop being so close-minded because that will just cause the genre to fail. Look at pop. Pop doesn't discriminate against people. Look at Lady Gaga, y'know what I mean? Who the f--- makes the rules for hip-hop? Who the f--- dictates who's cool and who's not? F--- you."

Practically an ally.

Rocky is as sharp as a tack on so many levels. ...proud to know he is a Harlemite.

@Peter Atkins: I don't know of any straight boys who serve it like that. I do know straight? or "straight" boys who serve it like that. But let me not be too cynical.
