Lil Wayne Has Jason Collins' Back

There's no doubt about it, Lil Wayne LOVES sports

Dude's even gone as far as to say that he dreams of being a sports broadcaster.

So, naturally, he has an opinion on the biggest news in athletics right now: NBA player Jason Collins' public announcement that he is gay.

"What it does for sports? It's opening a lot of doors and it's showing that it's a fair world out there," Wayne told MTV in an interview Saturday.

"Just to see how many people came to his support and things like that, that's a pretty fair world out there. Be you."

Weezy's thoughts do not differ much from fellow rapper A$AP Rocky. During an interview with Washington DC's KYSDC radio last week the Harlem rapper dubbed Collins the "Frank Ocean of the NBA" and had this to say:

“That’s his business. I respect men more for coming out. People joke on Frank Ocean a lot but at least he’s not out here fronting. It’s a lot of people, a lot of motherf--kers be out here, they be the closet motherf--kers, you know? I don’t respect them. I respect gay men who identify it and who are out with it."

We're just happy Lil Wayne seems to be in good spirits after a really rough week; first the rapper was hospitalized (a second time) for seizures and then he was dropped by sponsor Mountain Dew over controversial lyrics.
