Lil Wayne Raps Controversial Line About Frank Ocean’s Sexuality

Lil Wayne might find himself in some controversy after mentioning Frank Ocean in his verse on the remix to Future’s hit single, ‘Turn on the Lights.’ Weezy uses Ocean’s sexuality as a punchline on the track, which has everyone in a tizzy.

In the line, Wayne flips the “No homo” slang, popularized by Cam’ron, and changing it to ”No Frank Ocean.” The rap line goes, “Tell her I skate / I ain’t got no worries / No Frank Ocean, I’m straight.”

Oddly enough, Wayne recites this line after detailing a sexual romp with a female acquaintance, so there was no need for him to reiterate the fact that he is, indeed, straight. We must also note that Wayne mentions Miley Cyrus in his sexualized verse, as well. “When we get together, she be on that Miley Cyrus / So we eat each other up like some Somalians,” he raps. WTH?

Ocean has yet to comment and Weezy (nor Future, for that matter) haven’t addressed the controversial line, but the lyrics in question have sparked an online debate. Honestly, much of Wayne’s rap on this song needs to be questioned.

U.K. music blog The Line of Best Fit announced “Idiot Of The Day Award goes to Lil Wayne for this rather needless and entirely off-topic slur against Frank Ocean.” Meanwhile, on Twitter, some fans laughed off Wayne’s rap line, while others were disappointed. “His creativity is ahead of our time,” wrote one fan, while another tweeted, “Can he actually just Tupac now? SMH.”
