Can This Straight Rapper Get Men to Start Rocking Pink Lipstick?


Dphill Spanglishman, a straight rapper, is spearheading what he calls the "XY" movement, according to Vibe, "a new breed of straight male artists who rock lipstick and tight, colorful clothing to blur gender lines."

Vibe adds:

However, not everyone approves the statement Dphill is trying to make.YouTube users "TheNikbagtvZone" and "TheBloodprint" have publicly called him gay after his story generated a buzz on World Star Hip Hop.

Even if his girlfriend gets negative reactions as well, there’s no changing this guy’s fashion sense anytime soon.

“A lot of people feel like a lot of colors and tight clothes is homosexual,” Phillips said, “ I feel like that it’s more of an expression to me.”

  4. It's not very attractive on him. He kinda looks like the chief from where in the world is Carmen San Diego.

  6. OK, Who wants to tell him it's called "glam" and it's been around for about 40 years?

  7. Thank you HOSS! And that color looks horrible. If you gonna do it, do it correctly. That pink looks awful on him.

  8. HOSS & Angela:

    It's similar to glam, and that color totally doesn't work, but the fact that anything like this is happening in hip hop (and that mainstream media sources are paying attention to it) is totally revolutionary. As far as "gender-bending" goes, hip hop is decades behind rock.

    I say instead of negativity we should support him. He's awesome.

  9. Black culture is extremely homophobic, especially black music culture. Rap and hip-hop have caused it to become like this.

    As for this poor straigt-identifying guy, seems to me that he's more an attention whore than anything else.
