Years ago gay rapper Caushun was poised to become the first openly gay hip-hop artist in an industry famous for it's homophobic lyrics and misogynistic attitudes towards women. The media circus surrounding "the gay rapper" baffled many in the gay community for several reasons;Caushun wouldn't be the first gay rapper and certainly wasn't the only gay identified MC to pick up a mic inside or outside of the community.

There's a thriving gay hip-hop scene, or "homo-hop" as it's commonly referred to on the east coast and one talented artist at the forefront of this movement is New York based rapper Bry'Nt.

Bry'Nt's modelesque looks may be a draw to both male and female admirers, but it's his ridiculous flow and unabashed approach to his (homo)sexuality in his lyrics that is gaining him quite a following even in mainstream rap circles.

"The initial reaction is obviously, “What are you doing?” and “Gay people can't rap.” But once they actually hear me rap, they switch up their story: “You're hot for a gay guy.”, says Bry'Nt in an interview with The Windy City Gay Times.

Openly gay since age 15, Bry'Nt describes his music as "rainbow- friendly" and has set out to change the image of gay men in hip-hop. "I feel like I have a responsibility to be openly gay in music because gay people don't have a figure to look to,"says Bry'Nt.

If you're heading down to Miami this weekend for Sizzle make sure to catch Bry'Nt during a live performance. Get into Bry'Nt and a few of the talented east coast rappers who are changing the game in hip-hop in the video below. Also a free download after the jump.

Bry’Nt’s looks will be a positive for him in obtaining fans in the Gay community and even some straight “young tweens’ females. But to be taken serious as a hip hop artist or as a gay rapper, I would imagine that it will be difficult for Bry’Nt to gain the respect of the majority, which are heterosexuals. Even for gay’s, the image/idea of hip/hop and rapper are that of an overly masculine dude. At first I thought why is it an issue for him to be an “openly gay rapper” as Bry’Nt categorizes himself? But I decided to leave that question alone, so as to not confuse my curiosity with some Hater-ade for my dude. I do like his cut Porn Star, it has that club beat, and his flow is nice…deuces

I was with it right up until... "I have a boyfriend.. hes goin' to be 61 in December. Yeah, i like old men"... Gurl what??? Completely threw me!

But the rest was cute, "I don't touch myself, boys do it for me" His looks will get him far.

What's so wrong with a young gay guy liking older guys? I'm 50 plus and I recently had a young guy (about 24) tell me older men are more "sane" (his word) than guys his age. And he's VERY good looking (and white, by the way).

UrSoVain, I checked out your blog and I guess I shouldn't put too much value in the opinions of someone who actually thinks pant sagging is part of black culture just like yamakas (skull cap) are part of Jewish culture.

I'll finish on a more positive note. Bry'Nt is easy on the eyes and apparently openminded so, as a previous commenter said, I'll buy what he's selling (even though I generally don't like rap). Perhaps, his "shout out" to us "old guys" drew me in. LOL
