In a recent interview with CBS, the U.S. rapper said he knew since he was a teenager that he was gay and “would just pray and pray [that his sexuality] would go away”.
He acknowledges that his fame made it easier for him to come out.
“Me being in this position, it's easy for me. But some little boy 10 miles from here, it's not going to be good for him.
"We still have a long way to go, because it's not like everybody is messing with me now. Of course somebody who's listening to me in school right now, it's like, 'You're gay, cause you're listening to him.' There's still lot to be done."
