“You want to truly experience [censorship]? Start making biblical music. You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

‘Pride Month,’ a track which criticises the LGBT community from America First rapper Bryson Gray, has been removed from Spotify.

‘Pride Month’, which was released at the start of June, is one of the most recent tracks from Bryson Gray, the black America First rapper, well-known for patriotic songs such as ‘Safe Space’, featuring Breitbart News’s Patriot J,  ‘Trump is your President,’ and ‘MAGA Gang’.

In the song, Gray criticises the LGBT community from a Christian perspective, rapping about transgender activists pushing children onto puberty blockers at twelve years old, the promotion of LGBT motifs by media such as Netflix, and other topics. A snippet of the song goes as follows:

“Real Christ Gang
I don’t recognize no pride month
Revelation twenty one eight, you thought He lied huh?
What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?
They all fried huh?
Y’all keep disrespecting Yah like He won’t slide huh?
I’m just tryna make it in them Heaven gates
Repent and turn from sin or be reprobate
Pride a deadly sin but y’all celebrate
If you don’t become new then only Hell awaits”

However, on Tuesday, Gray revealed that Spotify had removed ‘Pride Month’ after only being on the platform for just over two weeks. The song is no longer available on Gray’s Spotify artist page, and is greyed out in the collections of anybody who had saved it. Gray noted that this is not the only time it has happened to him, and claimed it has happened “without resolution.”

Gray suggested that Spotify had removed ‘Pride Month’ because they would have labelled it as “homophobic, and hate speech.” However, Gray noted that songs from many other artists, including Eminem, DMX, and Kendrick Lamar, have used homophobic slurs in songs that still remain on the platform, which he argued was rank “hypocrisy”:

“Eminem made a song called ‘Fall,’ which was on his Kamikaze album a few years ago, and in the song he calls Tyler the Creator the word that gay people hate, the f-word… It’s right here, free to listen to. How about the other songs where Eminem said the same exact word? Like, the ‘Marshall Mathers’ song, or how about his song, ‘Rap God,’ where he literally says he will break a table over the head of the f-word that you can’t say. Nope, you can listen to that song too! And I didn’t even say that word.”

Gray questioned whether it was truly banned because his “music is homophobic,” or whether “something else” was at play that resulted in its removal.

“A lot of these artists cry about censorship but never actually experience censorship,” Gray tweeted. “You want to truly experience it? Start making biblical music. You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

In an email to Spotify, Valiant News asked the company why exactly ‘Pride Month’ had been removed from their platform. This outlet also inquired as to the criteria that would result in the removal of content from Spotify for being ‘hateful,’ and why other songs such as those Gray mentioned, were not removed despite their express use of homophobic slurs.

Valiant News did not receive a comment from Spotify by the time of publication. This article may be updated as a result of comment being received.
