Who is Lil Nas X?

Lil Nas X (real name, Montero Lamar Hill) is an African American singer and rapper. You probably know him best from the 2019 hit “Old Town Road”. I’ve always heard the song on the radio, but I never knew much about it, other than that it sounded like a hybrid Hip Hop/Country song. Come to find out while watching a MTV Music Video Awards, I realized it was by Lil Nas X, and that he is gay. It was significant that Lil Nas X came out during the success of his “Old Town Road”. As if timing couldn’t be any less perfect, this occurred in July, pride month.

Now I have a different angle on that weird hybrid Country/Hip Hop song I’ve only ever heard on the radio, and watching it, it’s a little obvious to see what hints Lil Nas X dropped.
