Video: Death Threats Against Christian Rapper for Response to Macklemore’s ‘Same Love’

Christian rapper Bizzle has released a response track to Macklemore’s gay anthem “Same Love,” which was featured during the 56th Grammy Awards when Queen Latifah officiated a blasphemous “marriage” ceremony for 34 couples, gay and straight.  Bizzle’s rap song has sparked a firestorm of criticism on the web.  It’s been branded as “anti-gay” and “homophobic” by various media outlets.  Bizzle has even received a few death threats, and he has also set up a website,, to showcase some of more vitriolic comments on social media.  A pro-gay site has accused the rapper of “boost[ing his] career by attacking more successful hip hop artists.”

The video begins with a quotation from 2 Timothy 3:1-5, a passage that warns of the increasing sinfulness of the last days:

But understand this, that in the last days
There will come times of difficulty
For people will be lovers of self
Lovers of money, proud, arrogant
Abusive, disobedient to their parents
Ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable
Slanderous, without self-control, brutal
Not loving good, treacherous, reckless
Swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God
Having the appearance of godliness
But denying its power…

Then, Bizzle’s rap rebuttle expresses his agitation with the repressive and intolerant nature of the homosexual lobby and its media supporters:

Trending: It’s Time for California Parents to Defy the Law

It’s funny how the media portrays things
They really pushing hard for this gay thing
And it’s so wicked how they manipulate things
Can’t even disagree without them making it a hate thing
I say you wrong, and you holla “hate” instantly
But you say we the ones who don’t tolerate differences…

The rap lyrics also reveal Bizzle’s core frustration with the homosexual comparisons of their sin to his skin:

And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate
You would compare your sexual habits to my skin (What?!?)
Calling it the new black
Tell me where they do that…

You can play straight. We can never play white
Using black people as pawns for yo’ agenda…

Most importantly, Bizzle shares the Gospel answer to the “born this way” argument:

We were all born in sin
But Christ died for your sin
You can be born again (Praise God for forgiveness)
We were all born in sin
But Christ died so we can be born again

To date, Macklemore has not made any public statements about Bizzle’s response rap.
