DJ Envy: You’z a Condescending Bitch!
By Khalil Amani
As “gay hip-hop’s” self-professed “straight advocate” and homophobe killa, I’ve been following transgender singer Sidney Starr ever since she came on the scene going back to “Chingy-gate.” I’ve watched her on Worldstarhiphop.com and seen her recant any sexual relationship with Chingy or any other rapper. She was a young person trying to get noticed in this homophobic and uber-macho world of hip-hop.

(*For you dumb-fucks Transgender means she was born a male)
Taking a page out of the “Hip-hop Book of Making It”—Sidney bulldozed her way into our consciousness by using Chingy. What she did was no different than what 50 Cent did in “How To Rob”—or what Maino did back-in-the-day when he was beating niggas up putting the “Hand of God” on niggas on camera, which launched his street-cred and rap career; the same shit some rappers do when they beef to get noticed. It was a shameless act of self-promotion. Chingy was a just casualty of her come-up-ness.
Sidney Starr has, as of late, been making her rounds on the radio circuit. I especially enjoyed her on Chicago’s “Tony Sculfield and the Morning Riot” show where she was candid about all of the controversy surrounding her life. The hosts asked the hard questions in a playful way, without making her feel dehumanized--and without condescension. They laughed. They exchanged jokes. There was even some light-hearted touching between a cohost and Sidney. Every one of those guys came away with their balls in tact.
Enter this bitch-made condescending Negro--DJ Envy of New York Hot 105.

From the get-go I was put off with his interviewing style. He was doing a cheap imitation of Charlamange Tha God—who’s the shows resident asshole—who was curiously AWOL during this interview. The full interview.
Oh this coon DJ Envy! This dude was asking the most ig-nant questions and being so condescending in his retorts! At one point he tried to interject his pseudo-theology/Christology, asking Sidney, “Do you believe in God? Do you believe that God made you a specific way; because that’s the way he wanted you to be? Not what you like…, He made you a man and you said, ‘God! I know you made me this way, but I ain’t fuckin’ with you right now, because I wanna be a female.’ You don’t ever look at it like that? ‘Cause God don’t make mistakes!”
This bitch-de-fied nigga thinks he knows something about the ways of God, so let me school him. First and foremost, the Bible says, “For my thoughts are not your thought, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9).
You got that? You don’t know why God made a “Sidney Starr!” Stop presuming to know the mind of the Infinite One (God)! Stop imposing your Neolithic view of the Deity upon people who don’t conform to your limited understanding of sexuality and the human brain—you arrogant fuck!
Who says, “God don’t make mistakes?”—Your preacher? Nice clichés don’t make things true! You say, “God don’t make mistakes?” Well I beg to fucking differ—and I’ll prove it right there in your dusty Bible--you ol’ no-knowing the book Negro! Sidney Starr can’t articulate what’s really in the “Good Book”—but now you’re fucking with a Bible scholar! You say, “God don’t make no mistakes, eh?” Well please explain Genesis 6:6 which says, “And it REPENTED the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it, grieved him at His heart.”
You ain’t never read no shit like this, have you? God repenting? God grieving? God saying, “Oops! This isn’t a good thingy!” God questioning Himself for having made humankind? God having to go back to the fucking drawing-board?! In the words of that cop on "Menace II Society," “You know you done fucked up! You know you done fucked up? You know you done fucked up!” God fucked up!
(Your problem is not with me! It’s with what the Bible really says! Take it up with Moses!)
God REPENTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You do know what “Repent” means, right? Repent means—“to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one's life, to feel regret or contrition, to change one's mind, To feel remorse, contrition, or self-reproach for what one has done or failed to do; be contrite, To feel such regret for past conduct as to change one's mind regarding it: To make a change for the better as a result of remorse or contrition for one's sins."
So God DOES MAKE MISTAKES according to the definition of “REPENT.” If God doesn’t make mistakes please explain to me the person born with a dick and a pussy—hermaphrodite/intersexed! If God doesn’t make mistakes please explain to me the person born with a deformity—Siamese/conjoined twins or mentally retarded or born blind. We can accept that God made these ailments, but we cannot accept a male, who has, from birth, instinctively felt like a female. All of these anomalies can be studied and fixed, yet the Trans-person is just trying to “play God” by changing the way they were born. Find a cure for Down Syndrome, because they are outwardly/obviously not functioning as “normal” humans, but because you can’t see what’s ticking in the brain of a transgender person—the assumption is that they are wrong for fixing and aligning their body with the way their brain works.
All these things, we as a human family are studying to fix through medicine and science. What would make the person born feeling like they are in the wrong body any different than the aforementioned?
Now that you see that God makes mistakes (according to the Bible)—perhaps we should take our imperfect “god” out of the equation and look inward for our solutions. This is not a “God conversation” in the first place! And I despise it when niggas try to interject—slip in—and superimpose their religious sensibilities on a subject that is beyond human comprehension! Fuck outta here! It is Christian Imperialism—Christian snobbishness—doff!—an elitist view of God to presume that you can put God in a conversation to deconstruct an anomaly in human physicality/sexuality—being Transgender.
No! I didn’t like the snobbishness—the condescending tone—the arrogance—the disdain, which DJ Envy exhibited towards Sidney Starr and I want him to know it! Like, yes, I’m upset, but why was Envy upset? Dude was trite! Dude was short-sighted. Dude acted like he knew nothing about being transgender, but then, slipped up and talked about hormone therapy. The nigga knew more than he was letting on, but decided to act “Charlamangnian” and feign ignorant. Envy is the kinda dude that would catch Sidney Starr out somewhere and give her the hot-beef injection! He was acting too "brand new!"
DJ Envious was checking for this transgender woman's voice, feet, hands, vagina, and Adam's Apple! Nigga wanted to know what size her shoe was (8.5) and looked stupid when he accused Sidney of having "big hands" only to find out that Angela Yee's hands were bigger. This coon was seriously trying to deconstruct her physical aesthetics!
The bottom-line is that Sidney Starr is a beautiful Trans-woman who defies all the stereotypes and tell-tale signs of masculinity--so much so, that Charlamange told Angela that he'd "hit that." (when he didn't know she was trans)
DJ Envy! You were out of character, which made you look silly. I can just imagine how it would’ve been had Charlamange been there too! Or, would you have been your regular self. Angela Yee made sense and was respectful. You Envy were a douche!
It looked as if DJ Envy was ENVIOUS that maybe—perhaps Sidney Starr was the wife he wished he had. What else can explain his vile demeanor?
