In a new song preview, it sounded as though 42 Dugg could have been outing himself. According to some people who misheard his lyrics, he said, “I was out here sucking dick, I was tryna pay the rent.”

While the lyrics easily could have been misinterpreted, 42 Dugg actually pronounces his bars pretty clearly here. He clapped back at anybody who thought he was gay, writing out the actual lyrics. “HOES OUT HERE SUCKIN DICK… I WAS TRYNA PAY HER RENT,” he tweeted after going viral.

After a week’s worth of trolling, the “We Paid” rapper is still getting messages about the line so he decided to speak up and clear his name.
