Disappointing. This is the only word that can describe Reach Records rapper Andy Mineo’s comments on his brother in Christ Bizzle’s brilliant response to Macklemore’s gay-affirming anthem “Same Love.”
In a recent sit-down with NBC’s “The Grio,” rather than taking the opportunity to support a fellow Christian artist’s efforts to put forth a biblical perspective on homosexuality, Mineo criticized them. It’s a shame.
“I think addressing topics like that (homosexuality) on rap records might not be the best place,” said 25-year-old Mineo, who, like his mentor and CEO of his label, Lecrae, doesn’t like to be called “Christian rapper.”
