The ‘Old Town Road’ hitmaker is saddened by his fellow rapper’s homophobic view as the latter dissed his Grammy look on Instagram and accused the Recording Academy of having hidden agenda.
Lil Nas X responded to fellow rapper Pastor Troy‘s homophobic post on Instagram. “This is so sad,” he commented on Troy’s hatred towards LGBTQ community before urging Troy’s followers to stream his latest single “Rodeo” that featured Cardi B and Nas.
Troy posted a picture of Nas X in a bright-pink cowboy outfit from the recent Grammys. “Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY…If this what I gotta wear,” Troy claimed before slamming the industry’s alleged hidden agenda. “They love to push this s**t on Our Kids!!”
He said his son was disgusted by gay couple and he couldn’t be happier about it. “The other day @applebees had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First Thing My 14 yr old Son said was, ‘F**** Applebee’s’ And It Brought Joy to My Heart!!” he revealed. “He sees it…their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially.”
“Some may say, ‘He Making Money!!’ RuPaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!!! Integrity is Priceless. Y’all Better open that 3rd Eye and let your Sons Know What Is Real…Or They A** Gone Be Headed Down That Old Town Road Foreal!!~P.T. #TheyGoneRiiiiiiddddeeeTil theycantnomore.”
Troy received a lot of criticisms for his homophobic view, but he defended himself, “That s**t (was) man made. Animals know better. When the last time you seen a gay animal? Ok.”
While he came under fire for his view, many still voiced their support. One of his allies was another rapper Lil Scrappy who gave his “like” to Troy’s post.
Lil Nas X won two Golden Gramophones out of the six nominations he received this year. He won Best Music Video and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, all for his hit single “Old Town Road” which features Billy Ray Cyrus.
