US rapper Lil Wayne controversially references R&B singer Frank Ocean's sexuallity in new rap song

US rapper Lil Wayne has controversially referenced R&B singer Frank Ocean's sexuality in a new rap song.

Featuring on a remixed version of Future’s new single ‘Turn On The Lights’, Wayne raps: ‘Tell her I skate/ I ain’t got no worries/ No Frank Ocean, I’m straight.’

The lyric is a clear reference to the R&B singer, who revealed earlier this year his first love was a man.

It is not the first time Wayne has been accused of using homophobic lyrics in his songs. In his song Georgia Bush, he says: 'Got money out the ass/no homo but I'm rich.'

According to a PRLog report, Brown was approached in Cannes by a member of the paparazzi who asked him about Ocean.
