xzibit1 Xzibit Mocks Frank Ocean With Gay Slur

When recent years have seen your career become a shadow of what it used to be, there is a tendency by some artists to lash out at their younger and commercially potent rivals.

Unfortunately, like many a Hip Hop icon of yesteryear, 37 year old Xzibit has found himself in that very situation this week, mocking chart topping vocalist Frank Ocean over his recent sexuality-baring letter.

Find out what happened below…

When one of the MC’s remaining fans asked if he had any plans to work with Ocean, Xzibit tweeted the following:

 

Used in slang to negate any comment or action which inadvertently alludes to ‘homosexual behavior’, Xzibit‘s use of ‘pause’ when addressing Ocean prompted one fan to Tweet:

 

Quite interestingly, the MC’s dig comes hours before news of his new album ‘Napalm‘ hit the net.

Perhaps, in realizing he has lost the pull that turned ‘Pimp My Ride‘ into a ratings smash, taking aim at Frank is his way of generating attention for a project we’re sure is just waiting to gather dust on a street corner near you.

Seriously though, it’s a shame artists like Xzibit continue to endorse ignorant ideas in public while doing the exact opposite in private.

After all, we doubt he’d be against collaborating with ‘someone like Frank’ if it meant aiding what is left of his ailing career.

Your thoughts?

        Actually that person is a gay man in denial because no man secure in his sexuality no matter what his orientation would be that concerned about what the next man does sexually and he is more pressed by the s** act between men as opposed to the love between them……

        on its own you’re right in saying pause is not a gay slur but why did he say it in response to a tweet about frank.

        So if he had typed #pause in reference to working with R&B artists such as Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Chris Brown or Usher Raymond would it also be perceived as a “gay slur”?

        #pause simply means “hold up”. I still don’t see why Xzibit (1 of the WORSE Rappers I’ve ever heard), would have a reason to work with Frank Ocean as not all Rappers or Hip Hop acts work with none Rap or Hip Hop artists.

      Yea I don’t get it. Where is “pause” a gay slur? Maybe he doesn’t want to work with Frank Ocean for reasons other than his sexual preference. Maybe he doesn’t like his style of music. People need to slow down with the accusations. The question seemed like bait anyway. Why not ask him what he meant….

        Its speaking about the “pause” itself you moron. Did frank ocean being gay have something to do with it? Maybe. he could of said it like ” Pause, hold up im not workin with this guy” #pause itself just means hold up. Thats what they are saying is a gay slur which is stupid.

      Although i don’t agree with prejudice of ant kind this situation is out of control. The world does not begin and end with Frank Ocean and people will not change their views because the mass media bandwagon has decided that he is the golden child. Racism still exists and we still have to deal with it, homophobia will still exist and we should be concerned about the people in the real world who have to deal with the issue, Frank is far removed from the public, blogs but the everyday person has to deal with it and isn’t getting major support from anyone.
      Also, i don’t see how #pause is a slur

    Good for X!

    While the rest of the industry is being fake, trying to latch onto devious Frank’s calculated hype and 15 minutes, X was minding his own business and not trying to get involved…then some clown on Twitter just HAD to bring Frank up to him. Why? Glad X didn’t try to be fake. He gave a very short, fleeting response and that was it…he didn’t even blast Frank. Then another Twitter idiot had to be all self-righteous and “PC” over something that wasn’t even necessary. If X doesn’t wanna work with him, then so the hell what? Tired of people acting like you have to like and support Frank.

      Its clear he was being slightly homophobic, but people say that all the time not neccesarily being aggressively homophobic like @sam is trying to make it out to be. Saying pause is not a gay slur. @sam has little to know integrity. Instead of making an article addressing the how hurtful a phrase like pause can be to the gay community, without heterosexuals even knowing so, @sam tried to paint exhibit to be this huge homophobe so that he can get a better story and paint frank as a martyr. Mind you franks friends Odd future say increasingly damaging homophobic slurs that both Frank and Syd (lesbian member of the group) excuse.

    Seriously man, shut the f*** up.

    People like you, who’re bent on trying to make everyone love Frank, are actually turning me against him. Not everyone has to be enamored with him and think that he’s some kind of wonderful because he dared to come out the closet.

    I don’t judge Frank for his sexuality whatever it may be but humans ARE allowed to have opinions. You know…opinions…which is a you got. If Xzibit isn’t into him? Fine. Trying to bring up his entire music history in your little hissing catfight turns me off more than the ‘supposed’ gay slur.

      People are allowed to have opinions sure but some of those “opinions” are wrong.

Better that they adjust sooner rather than later.

    How is “pause” a gay slur? It’s just a word and it has nothing to do with sexual orientation. It does show that he snubs Frank Ocean, but it doesn’t prove that he does not condone his sexuality. Maybe he simply does not like his vocals or his style. How did you assume he’s a homophobic by the word “pause”?

    Anyway, I don’t condone Twitter shade, but I’m glad someone kept it honest. Going against the grain is always better, so, much like I applauded Frank Ocean for releasing his open letter, I will applaud XZibit for being brave enough to not kiss Frank’s ass like everybody else is doing right now :wink:

    Sigh. This is not a ”gay slur”. The real “gay slur” is Frank Ocean trying to capitalise on bisexuality and the media building his music with preconceived notions as they did with Lady Gaga. I loved Nostalgia but the reviews for Channel Orange are really outrageous. It isn’t fractionally as good. By metacritic standards, Orange is supposed to be better than Nirvana’s Nevermind which is a load of bull.

    Reading some of the comments, I realized that some of you so-called “open minded” people who defended Frank are more homophobic than you blame Xzibit to be. The ONLY thing the man’s tweet proves is that he doesn’t want to work with Frank Ocean and you just assumed that the reason for that is Frank’s sexuality. SMH.

    There are countless reasons why an artist wouldn’t like to collaborate with another artist. If your mind went straight to sexuality, then you need to work on your own homophobic tendancies and leave Xzibit alone.

      By saying the word “Pause” in it’s slang meaning. He is suggesting that he is not gay or he doesn’t want to work with him because he is gay. Or else there would have been no point of ending sentence with pause. Other than to make a joke about a gay moment.

        I get what you’re saying, but the word “pause” is not necessarily a homophobic reference. Maybe Xzibit hates Frank Ocean’s vocals or his sound or maybe his lyrics to the extent where he thinks a collaboration is 100% impossible. It doesn’t have to be about sexuality. And even if it was, it was just ONE word. It’s not like he tweeted a 4-page homophobic manifesto.

    Pause in slang is used whenever a gay moment presents itself, whether it’s how u say something or a way somebody may be acting, as far as stereotypes of homosexuality anyway. So when asked if Xzibit would work with Frank Ocean, sounds to me like somebody wanted a funny or rude response. That’s exactly what happened. The response is clearly saying “No” I don’t wanna work with him because he is gay which could be a hint of homophobia or just not wanting to be grouped with him. No different then me not wanting to be associated wi hanging around with a drug dealer or a known h**. Is it right? No it’s not because in that moment I feel like I’m better than that person or much to good to even be mentioned I the same sentence. He is wrong just as I would be.

    Apparently ‘Pause’ is a cousin to ‘No homo,’ but I never totally understood why (or how.) I’m just guessing here, but I think “pause” indicates not being comfortable around something gay-related or implied that’s happening at the moment. Like “PAUSE on what’s happening here…” It’s more of a gay “snub” than a slur.

    Anyway, who cares? Not everyone has to be comfortable around gay people, or on Team Frank. Sam, you need to stop. You’re doing Frank no favors by being this overeager and obnoxious where he’s concerned. You’re overhyping and overexposing Frank so much that I can see backlash ensuing here where he’s concerned.

    Gays are becoming uppity. It’s starting to get to the point where if someone has any slight hesitation, reservation or discomfort about gay people, no matter how passive that person is in displaying it, militant gays and militant gay-friendly people wanna drag them to the carpet and preach.

    f*** all that. I’m not out killing any gay people, I’m not beating up any gay people, I’m not making life harder for any gay people…but I don’t HAVE to be comfortable around gays, nor do I have to support their plight or interests. I don’t have to be an ally or friend of the gays. So if I want to change the station when a Frank Ocean song comes on or avoid him and his music, then so be it. If Xzibit would rather not work with Frank, then so be it. You’re blowing this up like he just slandered and slurred him to hell and back, when all he did was drop a quick reference indicating that he wouldn’t be comfortable working with him. Is it because he’s gay? Maybe. But so the hell what? Who’s gonna die because Xzibit may not be a Frank enthusiast, even if it’s for no other reason than because of his sexuality?

To say that Xzibit was trying to use “slurring” Frank as promotion for his new album is dumb, considering all he did was provide a very short, non-detailed, retort to a question someone else asked him. Beyonce, 50, Busta, Brandy, Jamie, Solange, etc., etc. writing long winded valentines declarations to and about Frank are more “potent” examples of celebrities wanting attention from this Frank’s buzz. I just have to laugh at how someone not being on Frank’s bandwagon and showering him with praise makes them deserving of your petty vitriol. Grow up. I know Frank’s coming out and media acceptance probably makes hopeful that someday your gay ass can be something other than a hack blogger, with no staff, and who has to sensationalize news, bait fan bases and instigate drama for clicks and comments, but seriously man…f*** you!

      Silly statement. And a “never was”?””Irrelevant”? No one who is irrelevant debuts at #2 on the Billboard 200. He debuted at #2 basically from digital sales alone and with no major single and no major promo. That is what most real artists aim for. His album has received critical acclaim from all music critics. He’s doing Usher and Chris Brown numbers and he’s not even a mainstream artist, Chris Brown(135k, Usher 128k, Frank 131k). ..and they debuted at #1. He’s doing pretty good for himself

        Excuse me but Chris Brown is not doing mainstream numbers. If he was then his numbers would have been much more than what it was and you know that. Because of that one time fight alot of the mainstream audience are not buying Chris’s music. They spend most of their time talking s*** about him while their life is at a stand still in 2009. So compare the sales of Frank & Usher not Chris.

    Dear Xzibit, you are a fool and btw your gayness is showing!! I find it quite odd that Xzibit is making homophobic remarks being that he himself is GAY too ! SMH! Controversy= cash. Xzibit’s music sucks and no one really cares.

    “OH boy the f*** march on to “I’m every woman”, while great americans citizens like me have watch millions of Gay Oceans with dingy ass head bands promote this finger in the b*** life styles…ugh”

    Do you know what a “great American citizen” is?? You probably ride around in a white hood at night . Save your patriotic bullsh*t America is a breeding ground for hate and intolerant people like you in the world.

    nobody can say xzibit is trying to diss frank for publicity,
    considering frank oceans “coming out” has been one of the best publicity stunts in years.
    i like frank and xzibit. if you dont know who xzibit is, then you must be born after 1995.
    2 weeks ago alot of you never knew who frank ocean was!

    WAIT…..WHAT? ¯\_(*_*)_/¯

    How is this a HOMOPHOBIC rant or diss about Frank Ocean revealing that he’s been “FOOLIN’ WOMEN?” *Khia voice*

    The #pause at the end of his tweet does not indicate that Xzibit doesn’t like Frank Ocean because of his BISEXUALITY. How many R&B artists has Xzibit worked with in the past and for what purpose? Frank Ocean, despite of media claims, IS NOT A RAPPER/HIP HOP ARTIST! Why would a rapper need to work with him?

    Damn, this is really sad. If ppl don’t want to work with Frank Ocean, they DON’T HAVE TO WORK WITH FRANK OCEAN! It doesn’t mean that they DISLIKE or HATE ALL gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered ppl!…….geez louise :-(

    I know this non-muthafuckin-factor is not trying to diss Frank. I don’t think it was a gay bash, but he is in NO POSITION to turn down any collabos with anybody that’s hot for ANY REASON. With his irrelevant ass!

      Whether or not Xzibit is irrelevant, at least he’s not a homosexual exploiting his desire to suck d*** in order to get attention from the media.

        Um, Frank only made one statement about him being gay & that’s all everyone seems to want to talk about. The only ones pressed about Frank being in love with a man are ignorant small minded sewer rats like yourself.

        I think you might have some hidden desires about sucking d*** since you so effortlessly and colorfully described it for Frank.

    I stand with Xzibit. You couldn’t pay me to listen to Ms. Frank’s music and if he was playing a free concert right up the street from me, you couldn’t drag me to see it. Frank IMO is a very disturbed individual and instead of praising him, people should be trying to get the fool some help!

    Iggy Azalea used the words ‘Slave master’ & the entire black community went ape s*** & claimed she was a racist & practically tried to have her lynched. Now the same thing happens to another minority & the black community are the first to jump on it & tell them to ‘get over it’ & saying they’re ‘drama queens’ & start using offensive slurs. It’s somehow socially acceptable for people to use slurs to insult gay men when they make drama, but it’s not acceptable to drop ‘N’ bombs when black people make similar drama? Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

    Luckily most of the negativity is coming from people who can barely spell or string a sentence together so I shouldn’t worry about them ever managing to get into a position of power were their opinions would actually make a difference.

    Um, I really didn’t see a homophobic slur, though it always puzzles me with these rappers? I mean they have to know that they have as many gay fans as they do straight fans. And they have to know that not only are they attractive to woment but they’re also attractive to gay men. smh
