Lil Nas X has been a very controversial figure in 2021, due to him being unapologetic, in the content that he puts out in his songs, and music videos. Most notably, it all started in late March, with the Atlanta native putting out the music video to his “Montero” (Call Me By Your Name)” single. In those visuals, he’s seen twerking on Satan, which had many accusing Nas X, of worshipping satanic content. He also had his Nike Air Max 97 “Satan Shoes,” which contained blood at the bottom, and a Satanic emblem on the front. Nike ended up shutting the sales of those sneakers down, though.
Nas X Isn’t Worried About People Who Feel He Needs To Be A Role Model.
Nas X is also very outspoken in regards to his sexuality as a gay man. In his music videos now, he often shows a lot of nudity, along with the dancers that are featured in them. Critics, including celebrities such as Lil Boosie, feel that Nas X’s moves aren’t influencing children the right way, but Nas X and his fans, firmly disagree. In a new interview with The Breakfast Club, feels that he’s not the one who should be parenting others’ children, and telling them how to think.
Nas X Says “F*ck Your Kids”
In this Breakfast Club interview, Nas X went on to say “f*ck your kids,” but quickly decided that this wasn’t the best wording for this situation. Instead, he went on to emphasize that he won’t pander to people’s kids, or the parents, in general. One of The Breakfast Club’s co-hosts, Charlamagne Tha God, ended up telling Nas X that he created another headline for himself, with this comment, and the Atlanta native appeared to realize that this is the case now.

Nas X Is Also Racking Up Endorsement Deals
Even with people believing that Nas X should be a role model, corporate sponsors must think he’s doing his job. One of his latest business endeavors is with Uber Eats. In the latest ads, Nas X is seen with Elton John, as they’re seen complimenting each other, and saying what they’re going to eat. John also has his 32nd studio album, “The Lockdown Sessions,” arriving on October 22.
