T Pain is sounding off about the homophobia in the hip-hop community.

In spite of Frank Ocean's success with the release of his debut album, Channel Orange, the fact that he came out as gay before it dropped still has some artists shying away from collaborations with him, the rapper said.

"I think the radio is getting gay-friendly, I don't think urban music, or anything, is. If that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs," T Pain told DJ Vlad on VladTV. "I know [people] that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he's gay. But they need him on the song. And that's so terrible to me."

"Like my lifestyle isn't going to change how people see you," he continued. "That's weird dude...I don't cut people off because of how they choose to live their life."

T Pain also talked about his assistant, who is gay, and said people sometimes don't approach him when his assistant is with him.

Last year, the "One More Drink" rapper stuck up for his assistant in a sound-off on Twitter, in which he said, "Attention all homophobic idiots: if you're not attractive to straight women, you're probably not attractive to gay men. You can unclench now."
