I think it's OK for gay people to use the term faggot. It's the same is black rappers calling themselves ******s and asians, such as Margaret Cho, calling themselves chinks. They are totally offensive terms coming from outsiders (and rightly so) but not so when used on yourself. It's about context.

But who's going to know that this person is gay? Retards are just going to listen to it and hear that being gay is once again framed as an insult, and they will feel validated in using it this way.

Is DJ Hi-Tek horribly deformed? If not - and if it's all empowerment and reclaiming of words and what not - why is he wearing a grotesque mask while supposedly rapping about being a gay man?

And the blonde woman is really familiar. I'm sure I've heard and watched their music before.
Has samesame done a story about them before Matt?

It's ok if gay people use it... No different than black people using the 'N' word

It's amazing! So dark, angry and aggressive. Not as if it is going to be played on Fox FM or the like.

Not in the last two years or so! I'd heard about the band before but had never listened to them before today. x

@Matt Akersten

I remembered this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wc3f4xU_FfQ

Notice a cameo in the video by Leon Botha - who suffers from progeria...

I bet I saw it on Light-Bearer's facebook.

Wouldn't it be nice if, one day, a rap "artist" could sing about 'how it is' in another way; you know, that it is not all misery and sorrow, yet about how great life could be, and rather than using controversial lyrics, could spread harmony, understanding, peace.

lol not in the slightest. I'm not offended by his use of the words. I just think his argument as to why others shouldn't be, is lacking.

"All my tightest homies..." He sounds ridiculous, like someone dad trying to use teenage slang.

I hate to be the detail police Matt, but the band is called Die Antwoord not Die Antwood.

Loving the new italics feature by the way :)

Interesting interview on gays in hip hop on Huffington Post today. Apparently there is a gay mafia running the hip hop genre. Who knew?

Guys, I don't think you quite understand the concept behind this group. I've been following them for a couple of years now and they are sort of much taking the piss.. They are an immersive art project - they live their lives by these ridiculous identities. They know how ridiculous they're being and it's almost a joke. It's what makes them so great. In no way are they taking themselves seriously.. You can't really make broad statements about them because they are honestly nothing like what you've seen before

A dictionary tells me that something which is 'immersive' provides 'information or stimulation for a number of senses, not only sight and sound'.

I wonder how it works?

I think it's a slippery slope. We start calling each other "faggot,"and then we empower more bigots to use that word because it's now perceived as being "ok." It's arrogant to presume that everybody is ok with using that word. If we respect ourselves, then we look like idiots when we perpetuate bigotry used against us.

If you don't like what he's saying, simply don't listen to it. Anyone can find anything offensive, you don't have to be gay to be offended by the terminology used. If you don't like what DJ Hi-Tek has to say, then turn the song off when it gets to his part. Not that hard. I personally don't like his part in the song, not because of what he has to say, I find how he says it to be obnoxious... I turned it off.
