“Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X seemed to come out as gay on Sunday, the final day of Pride Month 2019.
In a series of tweets, the rapper began by saying, “some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.”
He followed it up with a tweet of the cover of his EP, showing that one the buildings in the background had rainbow coloring. He captioned the pic, “deada– thought i made it obvious.”
The song Lil Nas X is referring to in the tweet is called “Closure” and contains lyrics that include:
Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow.
No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go.
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold.
This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.

Lil Nas X burst onto the scene earlier this year with “Old Town Road,” his country rap song that was initially deemed to be not country enough for Billboard’s country charts.
The song became so popular, Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on a remix and it subsequently went on to be streamed 143 million streams in the U.S. in just one week in April.
The two performed it live for the first time at Stagecoach back in April. The rapper had what would have to be his most adorable performance of the song for the 5th-grade students at Lander Elementary in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.
