Lil Nas X likes to live it up. The rapper has been facing trouble ever since Nike sued him over his ‘Satan Shoes.’ He also got roasted by fans for kissing a dancer during his BET awards performance.
Nas X used to be an employee at Taco Bell, and now, he’s just made the ranks big time. The rapper recently rejoined the company in a much bigger capacity, which is the Chief Impact Officer.
The rapper’s inclusion to the fast-food giant was announced on Monday. Taco Bell CEO Mark King said in the press conference that Nas X knows the company and its culture. He added that X’s inclusion into the company with inspire them to tap into his genius.
Lil Nas X knows the job, the experience and the culture Taco Bell creates for its fans – including its people. This unique partnership will deliver on more than just marketing, allowing us to tap into the genius of Lil Nas X to inspire our team members and align with our commitment to unlocking opportunities for young people.
Nas X follows the trend of artists being part of corporate giants in honorary capacities. Lady Gaga was the creative director at Polariod, and Big Sean is part of Detroit Pistons in the same vein as Nas X.
X’s responsibilities at Taco Bell are yet unclear, but he will be promoted around the time his next album Montero drops. New menu changes and his inclusion in giving out scholarships to young talent are also in place.
