Boosie Badazz took to the Breakfast Club on Monday morning in an effort to defend his homophobic rant from earlier this month.

During the conversation, Boosie—who just added DaBaby to his Boosie Bash lineup after the Charlotte artist’s own homophobic rant—reiterated his statements, and his views on Lil Nas X

“I just be feeling like sometimes I gotta speak up because, as far as straight people in the world, you don’t have any opinion. … If you say anything, ‘I’m straight, I like women,’ it’s vulgar,” he said. “You can’t brag on really smashing or your sexuality anymore.”

Charlamagne and his co-hosts told Boosie they disagree and pointed to the lyrical content of many tracks. Boosie then elaborated on his views on Lil Nas X, sharing that his concerns over X stripping onstage were for “strong, young Black men.”

“If you were trying to raise [kids], would you be cool with sitting there and trying to watch Nas X go up there and take his clothes off?” he asked Charlamagne, before saying the host is “part of the problem.”

Lil Nas X picked up on the comments quickly, first replying to a Breakfast Club tweet with a cheeky “wow…. this is insane. almost as insane as my new single ‘industry baby’ which is out now.” In a more serious reply he wrote that “the shit y’all say about me would drive me crazy if i didn’t already love myself.”

Previously, X responded to Boosie after former NBA star Nick Young co-signed Boosie’s comments and pointed to “freedom of speech,” with the “Industry Baby” rapper writing, “a n***a saying he will ‘beat my f****t ass’ is not what we meant by freedom of speech.”

During the lengthy Breakfast Club chat, Boosie also explained how he was banned from Instagram multiple times over his uploads, sharing that “they got rules and regulations and discriminations.”

“Kim Kardashian can do whatever she want,” he said. “But as soon as Boosie do something, they ain’t do nothing but twerking. Girls can’t twerk? You act like they butt-naked. They twerking. You know why? They’re not being seen. In the corona, African-Americans, we took over. The social-media platform, you didn’t see nobody caucasian. I’m sorry, I’m not racist, I’m righteous.”
