The legions of rap fans who expected Lil Scrappy to have progressive views on gender identity have sadly been proven wrong. In an interview with Vlad TV, the rapper-turned-reality star sounds off on Caitlyn Jenner and the media frenzy that started with her Diane Sawyer interview and reached a fever pitch with her Vanity Fair cover. "I love my dick," Lil Scrappy says. "I do not want to be a woman." He goes on to urge the world's youth: "For the world of young kids, for the world of young little boys, stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis." Scrappy gets more specific when it comes to the intersection of gender and race, saying, "No Black man can stand up and say, 'You know, my whole life I felt like a woman, but I was just holding it down for my kids and my bitch.' We say that shit, n---a, we’d get assassinated--by us. We don't play that shit. Black folk don’t play that shit.”

While many will point to visible transgender women of color (such as Laverne Cox), Scrappy might be on the periphery of a point: GLAAD reports that in 2012, nearly three-quarters of LGBTQ homicide victims whose killings were classified as hate crimes were people of color. (These figures do not suggest that the killers were Black as well.)

Scrappy is perhaps best known today for his role on Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, though he was briefly one of the more promising commercial acts out of Atlanta. His 2006 debut, Bred 2 Die, Born 2 Live, made him the second artist (after former Hot Boyz member B.G.) to drop an album on G-Unit South. It included the Young Buck-featuring "Money in the Bank," Scrappy's second-biggest hit after "No Problem" from two years prior. Jenner, who won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics as Bruce, is better known in recent years for her role in the Kardashian entertainment empire.
