You know what is SUPER ANNOYING in Hip-Hop culture? “Pause” and “No Homo”. Let’s break this down with explanation first.
I’m going to say the origin of this is Harlem, New York. It all started with Cam’ron and Dipset and it caught fire FAST! At one point the whole world was saying this. Shoot even Roy Hibbert said “No Homo” in last years Eastern Conference Finals in a Post Game Press Conference. Once it was recognized what he said and what it meant, he was fined and of course publicly humiliated for about 48 hours.
“Pause” or “No Homo” means you have seemingly said something with “homosexual intent” and for you to clarify that you did not mean it in a “homosexual way” you say “Pause” or “No homo” so you can proceed with your statement or conversation as normal.
Think about what I just typed. Does that truly make sense to you?
I am an adult. I’m A Grown Heterosexual Man. I don’t “Pause”, I don’t “No Homo” or anything else the kids or people of low intelligence are doing nowadays. It makes no sense and it’s destroying the fabric of human beings and their emotions and compliments. I don’t say any of these things in mid sentence or after statements because nothing in my speech about a topic should or would advocate a “gay notion” in my mind, so it definitely shouldn’t do the same for someone else’s mind.
Present day, you can’t big up a friend or relative without a “Pause” or “No Homo”
Example: Man, that’s a really fly shirt you got on fam, Pause.
Yo, No Homo….but, I really like that fit you just copped last week.
WTF!?!?! You can’t pay another man a compliment without having homosexual tendency?!?! THAT’S THE DUMBEST ISH I’VE EVER HEARD!
This is Dame Dash. Extreme respect for Dame, his career and most importantly his undeniable contribution to hip-hop. However, I have no idea what he is even “Pausing” in this video. Maybe you can view it and help me out.
