Kanye along with being one of the most outspoken hip hop artist of our generation, has also been one of the most openly tolorent to the gay,lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender culture. So much so that he openly defended people who choose to be gay a couple of years ago in an MTV interview.
His openness and tolerance towards that culture has often gotten him dubbed as a closet homosexual from his peers, but not Fergie; In her eyes Kanye has helped paved the way for a more tolorent Hip Hop.
According to Fergie, Her band Black Eyed Pea's along with Kanye West have helped to make hip hop a gay friendly enviorment with their creativity and acceptance of others. In an interview with The Advocate she explains;
"They're completely gay-friendly. Are you kidding me? Look at how they dress! Kanye West really did a great thing for hip-hop and made it very mixed and open."
The compliment comes as both a good and bad thing for Kanye who has often seems to be the butt of someones gay joke, just a year ago he was featured on Southpark, in a spoof that revealed he was a gay fish.
Kanye has not responded to the praise from Fergie.
