Hip Hop is constantly evolving. Eminem made it possible to be a credible white rapper, Kanye achieved global success despite his privileged background and Nicki Minaj has played on her sexuality to become one of hip hop's biggest stars. But there's still one boundary the genre is struggling to cross. Where are the gay rappers?
Georgia Lewis-Anderson attempts to uncover the truth, following openly gay spoken-word poet Dean Atta as he takes the first steps to becoming an accepted and respected player on the UK hip hop scene, heading into the studio, performing live and getting that all important first play on national radio.
But are fans ready for an openly gay rapper? And will the industry support him?
Georgia also speaks with Plan B, Example, Estelle, Bashy, Mark Ronson and industry insiders from the UK and US to find out why the prospect of there being a gay rapper is such a taboo.
