Jailbird rapper T.I. is the cover story for Vibe’s December issue.
The convicted felon and childhood drug dealer has some opinions on homosexuality and Osama bin Laden’s status.
Vibe reports in an excerpt that “he makes clear that he supports anyone’s sexual preference,” T.I.’s thoughts go askew when he defends Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant.
T.I. says: “Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive. If you can take a dick, you can take a joke.’ [Cracks up laughing.] That shit was funny to me. And it’s kind of true.”
“They’re like, ‘If you have an opinion against us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.”
Then the subject of Osama Bin Laden’s death came up.
“It’s like everybody that the U.S. was besties with, years later they’re the worst person in the world,” says T.I..
“My question is what character traits do they possess now that they didn’t possess when y’all were besties? What made it go astray, and who’s to say they were on the dishonest end of that?”
Osama may be alive, according to T.I.:
VIBE: So you’re skeptical about the legitimacy of Osama’s death?
T.I.: Man, I’m a conspiracy theorist by nature. You can’t experience the federal penal system and not be somewhat skeptical.
