Q&A with Cocky da Homo MC
Why is this release entitled "The Gay Shady Deluxe"? Aren't you biting off Eminem?
-"Throughout the years, I've been increasingly aggravated by media outlets coining up the phrase 'The Gay Slim Shady' when discussing my music. I don't want to walk in anyone's shadow, particularly not an artist who has relentlessly made light of the LGBT community. While I respect Em as the superb, masterful lyricist and artist he is, I differ with him greatly when it comes to social issues. I sarcastically named the Cry Harder deluxe edition The Gay Shady as a tongue-in-cheek 'F.U.' to the media for ceaselessly comparing him to me."
Why is "The Controversial" censored on some parts?
-"Sometimes I'm too offensive for my own good. I've named names when I shouldn't have, and I've mocked sensitive news stories and people when I definitely shouldn't have at all. I've also gone in explicit, vivid detail about things the average heterosexual would puke over. And you know what? At the end of the day, I'm proud of all of it and have 0% remorse. Yet even so, the completely uncensored take of this song would legally get me in a ton of trouble."
Why are you selling this massive compilation of material and bonus items for just $2?
"-Because rappers in general haven't been innovative enough the past few years. They're more interested in ripping off fans by releasing rushed, shitty, regurgitated projects with no artistic value. I treat my fan-base like gold, I don't want to rip them off. I want to do the opposite. I want them to rip me off. And if I have to sacrifice income to make good entertaining art, then so be it. I like money, if you want you can donate more than 2 bucks to me, but money isn't the end all. I got into music to change culture. And I'll be damned if I don't do just that and get sidetracked by trivial green pieces of cheap ass paper."
What is your ultimate goal as an artist?
-"Cocky is the abject end of gay teen suicide."
Are you Hip Hop's antichrist?
-"I'm homosexual, Jewish, and red-headed. You do the math."
