Slim Thug recently said via Instagram that the secret to staying rich is avoiding "gay" designer clothes. Of course, this kind of narrative grows more dated and worrisome every year, although he said he didn't intend the term to target the LGBTQIA+ community. Still, his point took aim at more expensive and flamboyant clothing, which Slim Thug believes makes people wear the same expensive thing. Moreover, the Houston rapper said that he decides to spend his money on expensive jewelry instead, so he still wears a hefty price tag. While it's not the most controversial take in the world, one can't help but think that he could've said it differently.
"Let me show you guys why I still got money and a lot of rappers went broke," he began. Then, BIGslim showed off a $5.99 T-shirt he recently purchased. "The $5.99 shirt. Let me see how much the shorts is. The shorts, $12.99. Less than $20. I be in the club with this s**t on and you don't know 'cause I got on a million dollars worth of jewelry."
Designer Clothes Are "Gay," Says Slim Thug
"But y'all be buying that designer," he continued. "Y'all be looking gay 'cause all the designers are gay and I'm the only one standing out here. There be 10 of y'all standing around with the same Christian Dior shirt, 10 of y'all with the same Gucci shirt, and I be standing out with the plain T that cost me $5. Same as a happy meal or less. That's how you stay rich longer. I just wanted to give y'all that game today." Later, he took to the comments to clarify his use of the word.
"For the gay ppl who are wondering what I mean when I say look gay I mean when a hood dude wearing a Gucci rainbow shirt and a man purse no offense to y'all tho," he wrote with a few rainbow emojis. Regardless of whether you think it's in poor taste or not, at least he didn't double down. For more updates and the latest news from Slim Thug and your favorite artists, stick around on HNHH.
