Listen To This Rapper Reject Gay Advances In The Most Beautifully Gay Way He Possibly Ever Could

Curated by

A shameful situation needs to be rectified: This clip by New York area rapper Le1f (that's pronounced LEAF, as in his full name Khalif Diouf) needs to exist here on Upworthy, too.

Le1f made this video for his debut single "Wut" in 2012. Think about rap music in the decade before it — that's when homophobic slurs in rap became mainstream. I'm not saying this is the first music video like it to exist — rappers like Le1f did exist before, and will after him. But share this, because rappers like him are for everyone to enjoy.

About:

This original song by Le1f, off his "Hey" EP, which if you liked this you should buy because that would make sense and also because this is the cover:

And that is an awesome statement from a rapper if I ever saw one. (Fun fact: Le1f is also a classically trained ballet dancer, which explains his pose prowess.) You could also follow Le1f on Twitter or Like him on Facebook.

A public service announcement: If you would like to understand the slang bomb I just set off in your day, read the (slightly NSFW) meaning to the lyrics over at Rap Genius.
