American rapper Lil Nas X is currently trending on Twitter for his new music video “Montero” (Call Me By My Name) which he dedicated his younger self.
The “Old Town Road” rapper in his new video, took the stripper pole to hell, which has received both negative and positive reviews.
In the music video, Nas was seen in a purple-drenched Garden of Eden as he’s been seduced by a futuristic snake.
In the release of “Montero”, Nas shared a personal message to his fans. He stated that dedicated the song to his 14 year old self (Nas’ birth name is Montero Lamar Hill).
“Dear 14-year-old Montero, I wrote a song with our name in it. It’s about a guy I met last summer. I know we promised to never come out publicly, I know we promised to never be ‘that’ type of gay person, I know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist,” the note reads. “You see this is very scary for me, people will be angry, they will say I’m pushing an agenda. But the truth is, I am. The agenda to make people stay the f— out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be. Sending you love from the future.”
