Bloggers are all a buzz about the new book deal signed by former MTV producer Terrance Dean. In this tell all memoir Dean discusses his relationships with closeted rappers in the music and film industry. It is appropriately titled "Hiding in Hip-Hop: Confessions of a Down Low Brother in the Entertainment Industry.
According to O1LT.com, when reached by phone, Dean declined to discuss the book, but a spokeswoman for the publisher said it will identify Dean's closeted exes without naming them. "Let's put it this way: You'll know who they are," she promised. "It's a no-holds- barred look at Hollywood and hip-hop and who's living on the down-low."
Despite the images that rappers portray in front of the camera, it is no secret that homosexuality exists in hip-hop just like it does in every other profession in America. I'm sure this book is going to create a huge workload for a lot of publicists, they're going to have to work overtime to keep their artists sexuality from being questioned.
Wouldn't you hate to be one of the closeted rappers who made the mistake of "playing" with Terrance Dean? All I can say is ,"come out... come out... wherever you are" !
I've compiled a list of potential artists that could be mentioned in this book. Feel free to comment and leave your list, as I'm sure I overlooked some people. They're below on the TV screen where I'm sure they will be this time next year, but for a totally different reason.
