Hip-Hop Reacts To Supreme Court Decision Legalizing Gay Marriage

The hip-hop community reacts to Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage.

In a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Friday morning in favor of legalizing gay marriage nationwide. The hip-hop community has had a complicated history in regard to gay issues, but today it took to social media to express near-universal support for the decision, echoing the widespread support it lent Frank Ocean when he came out in 2012 (besides Chris Brown).

Artists responses were all very much in character; Tyler, the Creator wrote "FUCK YEAH AMERICA" and John Legend wrote, "Very happy about the SCOTUS rulings this week! Marriage Equality, Fair Housing and Affordable Health Care!"

Check out the full gambit of Twitter and Instagram reactions below. 

Equality = Freedom. Freedom = Love #LoveWins
