Rapper Rashad Jamiyl Spain, professionally known as Saucy Santana, recently shared his thoughts on having gay children. In a clip from VH1's For The Fellas set to air on December 15, Brian B-Mac McIntosh told Saucy Santana that he missed him and asked him if he wanted kids. The artist stated that if he had a son he would not want him to be gay and also expressed that he was worried about "how to raise a kid."

"If I had a son, I wouldn't want my son to be gay. And, not because nothing is wrong with it but because of everything that I went through," he said.

His words were appreciated online by a lot of people, who stated that this was a conversation that needed to be had.
