Following Monday night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, power players from the rap industry will be getting candid about being gay in hip hop on VH1’s LHH: Out In Hip Hop.

Miles aka Siir Brock, a famous rapper who recently came out as bi-sexual, stopped by the HipHollywood loft and opened up about appearing on the special. “I was scared,”  the rapper, who is openly dating rapper/model, Milan Christopher said.  ” Sometimes I was hesitant to really speak my opinion because it is such a touchy subject, you really want to tread lightly on what you say. I still have insecurities about this whole thing.”

Siir Brock went on to explain that “From the special you can expect people from the church, you can expect people from hip hop, you can expect the LGBT people in this industry versus straight people and their beliefs. You are going to see heated arguments, heated battles and heated discussions. Everything that we deal with all of our insecurities put on the table and just hashing it out.”

The rapper expressed that “It’s very hard for the LGBT community to be very successful in hip hop.”

The special will air on Monday night at 11 p.m. PST.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
