Taylor Bennett Gets Shirtless In Debut Performance of "Streaming Services"
Taylor Bennett is giving us all types of feelings yet again.
The openly bisexual rapper appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this past Monday to debut his newest single titled “Streaming Services.”
The song honors Bennett’s struggle and triumphs as he tries to branch out from his older brother's, Grammy winning rapper Chance the Rapper, shadow and become an independent artist.
If the performance version wasn't to your liking, you can check out the audio version of the song below.
Two years ago, Taylor Bennett came out as bisexual on Twitter.
It was then revealed that he hadn’t even come out to his family yet. Bennett’s older brother Chance spoke to Inquirer.net and shared that he also found out through his brother’s tweet.
“We honestly didn’t talk about it until after he put it out on Twitter… so I think it’s cool he could tell everyone via the Internet and kind of blunt the impact,” said Chance, “I think what he did was stronger than most people.”
He added, “I kinda just stepped back and… admired him.”
Since then, Bennett has continued to make music and speak on his sexuality when asked. Like in August of last year, Bennett shared with the Breakfast Club that he hopes to make others in the hip hop/music industry feel comfortable enough to come out.
"Hip Hop is gay as f*ck,” the artist stated, “but also know that there's a lot of Black people that never had the opportunity like me to come out. That's what I want to do is I want those motherf*ckers to feel comfortable."
We here at Instinct have also named him as one of 10 prominent rappers who are making the rap/music world more inclusive and LGBTQ accepting.
We look forward to seeing how Taylor Bennett will grow from here.
