Lil Nas X is over Boosie Badazz and his homophobic brigading. He says he’s bored with the feud. The Old Town Road rapper says he’d prefer to focus on lifting up other LGBTQ+ artists within the hip-hop community.
Nas talked to GQ, who he told about his thoughts on the shifting understanding of gay artists in the rap world. In ten years, he says that nobody will even consider his current work shocking. He says the masculine landscape of hip-hop is changing for the better.
“The whole landscape is very hypermasculine. I do feel like this newer generation of rappers who are coming in, and the ones who are here, are going to have to reshape their thoughts. Because change is happening.
There’s going to be so many gay rappers. There’s going to be more trans people in the industry and what not. Ten years from now, everything that I’m doing won’t even seem like it was shocking.”
Lil Nas X recently appeared on an episode of Maury Povich along with his ex, where it was revealed the ex-boyfriend was married. He’s been working on expanding his mind and creating more meaningful music. He also recently outperformed Drake on Spotify.
Lil Nas X is a unique star in the hip-hop galaxy. His approach of bringing his whole self to his performances is opening the door for a new generation of hip-hop. His prediction as that a decade from now, kids will make fun of his tame music the same way Generation X did to their Elvis-listening folks.
