He says it’s important to have LGBTQIA+ representation in the rap industry. Lil Nas X dropped the music video for his latest song ‘Industry Baby’ late last week and it delighted fans all over the world.
It featured the rapper, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, and fellow artist Jack Harlow in a prison, along with some not-so-PG-rated dance moves. One scene in particular shows a naked Nas X with several naked-yet-censored backup dancers. While many thought it was an epic music video, there was a vocal minority who have complained the 22-year-old is pushing a gay agenda in his music.
The rapper came out as gay in 2019 and hasn’t been shy to express his sexuality in his music videos ever since. He’s hit back at the negative accusations about injecting some rainbow colour into the rap industry. “All jokes aside the idea of a gay agenda doesn’t make sense,” he wrote on Twitter. “If someone influences you to suck ck you probably already wanted to suck ck.”
“The truth is there is no attack. You view femininity as weakness. You don’t like gay black men because you are afraid of black men, as a whole, being viewed as weak,” he said in another tweet. “You cling on to your masculinity because without it you have nothing else going for yourself.”
