T-Pain is accusing certain members of the hip hop community of blacklisting Frank Ocean because of his sexuality.

During an expletive-filled interview with Vlad TV, the King Of Auto-Tune claimed some rappers refuse to work with the openly-gay R&B singer, who caused a media stir when came out of the closet in 2012.

“I think the radio is getting more gay friendly,” he said. “I don’t think urban music or anything is getting more gay friendly. If that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know n—–s that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the f–king song and that’s so terrible to me, man. It’s like, ‘Dude, my lifestyle ain’t gonna change how people see you.’”

“Like, he was on the Watch the Throne album before he came out,” T-Pain continued, “and then when he came out, it’s like he can’t get in the studio with Jay and Kanye right now. It’s so f–king terrible. … It’s in his f–king genes. It’s not a f–king choice. The man came out like that, and you can’t just f–king disown this man because he’s living a certain life that you don’t f–king approve of because somebody told you not to approve of it.”

This isn’t the first time the “I’m Sprung” singer lashed out at all the homophobes of the world. Last April, he spoke out in defense of his gay assistant.
