Rapper Taylor Bennett just dropped a brand new EP called Be Yourself and it’s just as incredible as it sounds.

The younger brother of Chance the Rapper, Bennett came out as bisexual the day before his birthday last year (18 January).

The 22-year-old artist took to Twitter to announce the release of the single.

He tweeted: ‘I want to thank God for making this project possible.’

He sings in the new song: ‘And niggas still call me faggot, but bitch my shit lookin’ fabulous.’

Bennett then later raps: ‘My debt is repaid and then blast that shit, I ain’t cappin’ or Catholic. I’m an outstanding Afro-American bisexual havin’ shit.’

Taylor Bennett: I wish I could’ve come out sooner

In an interview with Windy City LIVE, Bennett said: ‘The mass message is just to have a conversation.

‘I think that the problem with not just everyday life and not just how we communicate with each other is just that we don’t have conversations to begin with,’ he said.

On why he chose to come out on his birthday last year, Bennett said he wishes he could’ve come out sooner.

He said: ‘I wish that I had felt more comfortable as a younger age and live my childhood and not just one year of my life being who I want to be.

‘You know what actually finally made me do it? I was about to be 21 and I figured I’m gonna be a grown man.

‘I’m old enough to drink, join the army, smoke cigarettes, I might as well be old enough to be myself,’ he said.

When Taylor Bennett came out as bisexual last year, he took to Twitter for a long post explaining it all.

He tweeted: ‘My birthday is tomorrow & moving into next year I’d like to be more open about myself to help others that struggle with the same issues.

‘Growing up I’ve always felt indifferent about my sexuality & being attracted 2 one sex & today I would like to openly come out to my fans.

‘I do recognize myself as a bisexual male & do & have always openly supported the gay community & will keep doing so in 2017. Thank You,’ he said.
