In last weeks transitions, Lil Nas X known for his satanic imagery and worship of the devil has switched sides.
Lil Nas X has crossed over into Christian rap and says he’s in his “christian era” But is he cap? Tyrese thinks so.Lil Nas X (real name Montero Lamar Hill) is an American rapper and songwriter who shot to fame following the release of his single Old Town Road. The song became a viral sensation on TikTok before climbing to the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it stayed for a record-breaking 19 weeks. Lil Nas X raps in his new song. “Free me from worry and wanting pity / Free me from all this envy in me / I don’t want these feelings / I don’t want these feelings / I call on angels / Im trying hard to face my pain, yeah / Give me hope when I feel / Give me hope when I feel less,” Weirdly enough, Nas X’s dad was actually a gospel singer, who naturally imposed religious rules in the household. One of them, Lil Nas told Time in 2019, was that homosexuality would never be okay. “I grew up in a pretty religious kind of home – and for me, it was fear-based very much. Even as a little child, I was really scared of every single mistake I may or may not have made.” Lil Nas X sparked controversy among conservative Christians due to his provocative music video for “Montero.” The video stirred strong reactions from this demographic, igniting debates about artistic expression, religious sensitivities, and the intersection of popular culture with conservative values. Tyrese thinks now the rapper is making a mockery of God. After peeping the snipped, Tyrese reacted to Lil Nas’s christian era by posting this on X. “Y’all gone learn to stop playing with God … God is not to be played with … From shoes with devil signs and devils blood in the [shoe] sole? We can all change I get it but I feel a way about people making a mockery about Jesus. Do you, life your life .. Do what makes you happy but yall better stop playing with Jesus out here.” Lil Nas X known for his rapid-fire clapbacks, tweeted: “This really crazy cuz all I did was post a song about asking god for hope when you feel hopeless and yall acting like I posted a video of me burning a church down and peeing on a nativity scene.”
