Young Thug recently jumped on Lil Nas X’s remix of record-breaking song “Old Town Road.” In the midst of the response to the newest version of the track, Thugger gave his thoughts about the other controversy surrounding X .
Recently Thugger sat down with YouTube’s No Jumper, and talked about how he believes that Nas X may receive backlash for recently coming out as gay, and that he shouldn’t have told the world about his sexuality.
Young Thug via No Jumper:
“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world. He shouldn’t have told the world because it’s like, these days, motherf**ers just… it’s just all judgment. Like, motherf**ers just judging. It ain’t even about the music no more.”
“Once you found out he was gay, everybody, soon as the song come on now, everybody, like, ‘This gay a** n***a.’ N***as don’t even care to listen to the song no more.”
Watch the full interview here:
Lil Nas X opened up about identifying as a gay man this past June, referring that his sexuality could be better understood in his song “c7osure.” In an recent interview with BBC, he stated that it was true that he in fact has been dealing with some major backlash since coming out. Despite all of that he’s trying to remain positive.
Lil Nas X via BBC:
“It was like, I don’t wanna just live my entire life—especially, you know, how I just got to where I’m at—not just like doing what I wanna do.”
Back to Thugger, who continues on how brave Lil Nas is:
“I just feel like, he young, and it’s like backlash can come behind anything. So it’s like, it wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it, during Pride. That was the best time to do it that was a G’s move.”
“But it’s like, he young, so I know what he going to be dealing with, with it in his mind, I dealt with this sh*ot before. I know what he going to be dealing with. So that’s why I was like, fink, he should have never said that, he should have never told them.”
Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.” beat out Los Del Rio’s “Macarena” as the longest-running No. 1 debut single ever!!!
