"Game has no problem with gay people, Game has a problem with people who are pretending not to be gay." Rapper Game believes a number of big name rap artists are gay and he is urging them to be honest about who they are, however his apparent bout of enlightenment only stretches so far. "I think there are several rappers that are in the closet and gay. They are the only type of gay people that I have a problem with. I don't have a problem with gay people. Gay people are everywhere and rightfully so, it's a free country," he says, according to Bang! Showbiz. "Game has no problem with gay people, Game has a problem with people who are pretending not to be gay. The number one issue with that is that you can be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die. So that in the closet shit is real scary. "We got to get into the seriousness of it. If you're gay just say you're gay, so be cool and be proud." In 2008, former MTV executive Terrance Dean wrote a memoir, Hiding in Hip Hop, in which he described how there were a number of gay stars in hip-hop, although he chose not to give any specific names.
