Snoop Lion believes homosexuality and rap music are like Lindsay Lohan and sobriety ... they just don't mix.

Snoop -- a known supporter of same-sex marriage in America -- was asked by The Guardian if Frank Ocean coming out last year would pave the way for other gay rappers.

Snoop said we shouldn't hold our breath, explaining "Frank Ocean ain't no rapper. He's a singer. It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine."

He continues, "It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf----g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough."

But Snoop made it clear -- it's the nature of the biz, not him -- adding, "I don't have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies."

Plus, we spoke to Snoop last week in L.A. about same-sex marriage. Here's what he had to say ...

Rap is masculine? Al the posers, losers, douches and knobs that rap are the biggest pretenders in the entertainment world.
I would question the masculinity of any man that wraps a rag around their head and goes out in public.

No "Snoop Lion's homophobic hate speech!" headline? Is this because he's an Obama supporter like TMZ?

I am sure they are all "down low" They are not masculine, if they were they woold be secure with themselves and not have to put down women. They secretly hate their mamas.

down low, all of them. they just don't like frankie spilling their secrets. the fight between frank and chris brown was probably a lover's spat. no secure man is homophobic and calls womens "ho*s."

He's ignorant. Not all gay men are feminine. Their are a lot of masculine gay men.

He's got a point. It isn't the gay people that are the problem, it is the Neanderthals that make up the rap world that are the issue.

Snoop is right. Rap music is all about fronting and acting tough. You cant be soft or in this case gay. Even being thug and gay wont work because one of the main things in rap is calling other rappers b!tch or pus$y or whatever.
