0 Cent may seem like a tough rapper who survived nine bullets but he’s got a soft spot for Frank Ocean.
Since Frank came out as a bi-sexual man through Tumblr a few weeks ago, he’s been receiving tremendous support – along with a few haters – from the hip-hop community. 50 Cent spoke with MTV UK frankly and sent out a message to all of the “Channel Orange” singer’s haters.
“Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot,” 50 said. “I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like ‘Novacane’.”
The “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper also applauded Frank for the perfect timing of his public statement. “You can call it brave or you can call it marketing, because it was intentional; it wasn’t an accident.”
“Obama is for same-sex marriage,” 50 argued. “If the president is saying that, then who am I to go the other way?”
Other celebs like Adele have been vocal about their support for Frank. The “Rolling In the Deep” singer-songstress tweeted, “Frank Ocean your so so special. Congratulations on such a STUNNING album x”
