Rapper Lil B to release album called "I'm Gay"...and faces death threats

Cali rapper Lil B has come forward with an announcement to call his upcoming new album “I’m Gay”. Lil B, who is straight, is setting out to “flip the meaning of the word ‘gay’ and use its other definition, happy” because he has “major love for the gay and lesbian community, and I just want to push less separation and that’s why I’m doing it”. According to Lil B, he has received death threats as a result. While GLAAD, XXL Mag and MTV News were quick to jump on the story, Lil B hasn’t actually recorded the album yet, although he hopes to have it recorded and released on iTunes sometime in the next two months.

What do you think? Publicity stunt or sincere attempt to be an ally?
