Last week, the “Industry Baby” artist dropped a teaser for a song from his upcoming mixtape Nasarati 2, where he raps about his personal life and queerness before he reached mainstream fame. “Cap and gown, I graduated and got out of town / Went to college where I had no one around / Grindr sessions sexing with faceless accounts / Bringing bodies in me then sneaking ’em out,” he raps.

But the next bar, where X discusses his closeted youth, is what had some listeners shook. Lil Nas raps, “Back in middle school I was fiendin’ for dick / Seventh grade sending my homies some pics / Daddy never knew what I did as a kid / He would’ve crucified me but trust me I get it.”

Despite some praising Lil Nas X for showing a vulnerable side of himself, others claimed that the lines were intentionally controversial for attention.

In response to the critcism, Lil Nas broke his X hiatus to speak his peace.

“i hate explaining myself every time i do anything, but this is not for shock,” he wrote. “this is me telling my story, y’all being uncomfortable by it does not make it a gimmick. this is for me and my fans fuck everybody else.”
