Former Death Row Artist Criticizes Fellow Gay Men

Danny Boy

Danny Boy, an artist on Death Row in the 1990s and a singer on numerous 2Pac songs, has mixed feelings about same-sex relationships.

Once a rising figure on the roster of rap label Death Row, singer Danny Boy is now an out gay man -- though he has reservations about it.

The Chicago-based artist came out in 2013, but some of his recent posts on Instagram have shown a dissatisfaction with same-sex relationships.

Glad I have morals, integrity and respect

Danny Boy was signed by the infamous 1990s Death Row label, run by Suge Knight, when he was only a teenager. His first single, "Slip N Slide," was released in 1994, with Ginuwine singing the chorus, and 2Pac and Snoop Dogg in the video. Danny Boy would go on to sing vocals on 2Pac songs like "I Ain't Mad at Cha" and "Heaven Ain't Hard 2 Find."

The singer still performs and recently posted himself writing inspirational lyrics.
