On Sunday March 28, the Massachusetts rhymer tweeted about the Nas X video, writing: “This @LilNasX video is wild, but as an artist he does whatever he’s supposed to do. Create moments. virals, getting people talking and creating content, he’s already I knew you were going to react. It’s a formula that will work. I doubt he actually worships the devil. “
In a follow-up tweet, Joyner typed: “I think the biggest problem for me is the fact that he doesn’t understand ‘the old town road’ is all children’s anthems. Kids love him for it. this album. They listened and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped a left field track and all of our kids saw it. Smh. “
Lil Nas X, who responded to criticism surrounding his new single and visual all weekend long, responded directly to Joyner’s tweet last night. The artist from Georgia said, “I literally sing about skinny and adultery on the Old Town road. You have decided to let your child listen.
While Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Hill, did not explain in detail the entire premise of “Montero (Call me by your name)”, he is seen in the video being drawn away from what appears to be the garden of Eden. He then falls to hell and later seductively dances on the devil. The devil in the video also wears a pair of Nike Air Max which are described as having human blood on them, created by the art collective MSCHF based in Brooklyn, New York.
After the song and video came out, Nas X, who is openly gay, shared an open letter he wrote to his young teenager. Apparently his latest single is about a guy he met last summer.
“I wrote an unnamed song,” he told his Twitter followers early Friday morning. “This is about a guy I met last summer. I know we promised never to go out publicly, I know we promised never to be ‘that’ type of homosexual, I know we promised to die with secrecy, but that will open doors for many more gay people to just exist. “

The black and red Air Max 97 shoe is said to have been reworked by the MSCHF art collective based in Brooklyn, NY. However, according to CNN, a Nike representative told the outlet that the company had not released the sneaker, which would cost $ 1,018 a pair and refers to Luke 10:18, which says in the Bible: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from the sky. “
Nas X posted an “apology” video on his official YouTube page yesterday regarding the controversial sneaker, but he was actually just lagging behind and submitted a clip of his music video.
