Many say this topic isn’t Hip Hop, many say THEY don’t belong doing hip hop. The ironic thing is no matter who you are or what your lifestyle is and who you choose to love shouldn’t have anything to do with a passion. As an artist myself, I have encountered many people from all walks of life and one thing about music rather it be RnB, Hip Hop, Country music it is all universal the passion ignites us as artist.

Mr. Rodriquez, I don’t know if Hip Hop will ever be ready for the openness of your journey or any other person that lives a lifestyle as they call it that you live. I know that your hard work and dedication to the game and as an artist who has always wanted to work with you, I don’t care who you love, who you are with as long as you are happy and are at peace with your journey I love it. Bunny has tons of love for you and so many other do as well. Perhaps this will help others not be afraid to be who they are. I salute you!!!!
