Berkeley rapper Lil B may have taken a lot of heat for the title of his new album, I’m Gay, but he apparently has total buy-in from popular Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco, who tweeted in support of the album this morning. “I actually think calling his album “I’m Gay” is GENIUS & Revolutionary, the cover is Genius, some brave shit…AND he spittin REAL shit,” Fiasco tweeted, catching the attention of tabloid bloggers. Fiasco went on to characterize I’m Gay as “controversial, independent, fearless with a massive movement built off a crazy work ethic…sounds like #Winning to me. Why hate on that???” Indeed. I’m Gay dropped today, and it’s currently charting #8 on iTunes.
