An anti-gay cover of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Grammy Award-winning marriage equality hit "Same Love" was released this week by Christian Houston-based rapper Bizzle.the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bizzle, who is more known for an e-fight with Jay Z than the merits of his music, offered his response to "Same Love," which made headlines this week after Macklemore performed the song on Sunday night’s Grammy Awards with Madonna and Queen Latifah, who officiated the marriages of more than 30 gay and straight couples. Bizzle’s track, renamed "Same Love (A Response)," samples the same instrumentals as the original but Bizzle raps his own lyrics, criticizing the original’s comparisons between the gay rights movement and the civil rights movement.

Some choice lyrics (via Hip Hop DX):

"You rather fight God than fight sin / The Bible is alright until it calls what you like sin / And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate / You would compare your sexual habits to my skin / Calling it ’the new black?’ Tell me, where they do that? / They hung us like tree ornaments, where were you at? / They burned us for entertainment, you go through that?"

Bizzle also raps that being gay is a choice (via Towle Road):

"Man I ain’t choose this! You think you chose that? Well I was born this? Well prove me you were born that."

Towleroad also points out lyrics that suggest Bizzle links gay men to pedophiles:

"You were never oppressed. The devil was a liar / The only thing oppressed was your sexual desire / Keeping your desires oppressed is so lame to you / But when you get married that’s what you expect your mate to do / It angers you if I compare you to a pedophile / Because he’s sick, right, and you’re better, how?"

Bizzle posted the song to SoundCloud. It has more than 33,000 plays and 645 likes. The track was also posted to YouTube. There, it has nearly 16,000 views and nearly 600 likes.

    Why would I, or you, want to listen to some ignorant, homophobic ass sing about hatred?

    isn’t being Homophobic being afraid of Homosexuality or Homosexuals?in this rap i heard by bizzle it didn’t seem like he was afraid of homosexuals at lest to me... it just seemed that he was saying its sin ... and that we all wrestle with sin .. whether straight or not... this shouldn’t bother the people that don’t believe in the term sin..i think a lot of people are afraid of what they don’t understand and it brings about a inner frustration that a other person just can seem to view life the same way as they do and agree with them . Calling Bizzle a homophobic i feel is just a way to make him look bad ..... how about having some understanding that he is trying to articulate his views for the most part in a loving in way through his art form.Its a sensitive topic so maybe making a rap song about it maybe wasn’t the best idea, maybe he should get to know some homosexuals on a relational level to share his faith and hopefully the homosexual community will be accepting to understand the essence of the Christian faith is the bring life and good news, for Christians believe sin is like a cancer so they believe there is a remedy. ... whats wrong with that? i think Macklemore wrote his song believing that he had a positive message to deliver ... it has a very positive vibe ... but its just a fact that not everyone is going to agree with him , i think its important to have backbone and know firmly what you believe otherwise you will be swayed easy,...open mined but not accept everything as truth just because its more popular. i believe there is a way to completely disagree with someone and not hate them but have love and to have the patience to hear there story on what moulded there worldview. I think Bizzle believes in a Loving God who has the best intents for humanity... lets not be Godaphobic people... bless.
