Jagged Edge Star: Lil Nas X’s ‘Wicked’ Video for ‘Call Me By Your Name’ is ‘Witchcraft’

Published: Sunday 28th Mar 2021 by Rashad

Lil Nas X‘s polarizing, yet highly controversial new music video – ‘Call Me By Your Name’ – has been called many different things by commentators since its Friday (March 26) debut.

While fans and even celebrities like rapper Big Sean have christened the venture “creative” and “artistically daring” (as we reported here), others – like GRAMMY nominated Jagged Edge star Brian Casey – are among the critics who are slamming the Tanu Muino-directed clip as “demonic” and “satanic” for its bevy of sacrilegious imagery, which includes a scene of the 21-year-old giving Satan a lap dance.

Taking to Instagram recently to weigh in on the hoopla surrounding the visual, look inside for Casey’s lengthy statement on the matter.

The ‘Tip of My Tongue’ singer had tongues wagging when he took to social media Sunday (March 28) to denounce the LNX video.

Read his full statement below:

“This is what happens when you don’t know who you are nor who your God is, we are not heathens we have no business taking wicked shit that people have made us believe is ok, and trying to take it to another level, it’s like we in a contest to see who can be more wicked, and more rebellious against the Most High. 1 Samuel 15:23-For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king. Bible says plain and clear that the rebellion we are seeking so hard is as the sin of witchcraft, and this is what the scriptures say about witchcraft or being a witch. Exodus 22:18-Thou shalt NOT suffer a WITCH to Live. The Bible is plain and simple about the dangerous games we are playing, but we don’t understand the way we live is not following in the ways of our God, but following in the ways of our oppressors. Psalm 83:3- They have taken crafty counsel against thy hidden ones. 4- They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5- For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: So verse 3 says that they our oppressors have taken “crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones” so who are the hidden ones? We are, but why? Because we have been cut off from being a nation, and a people, and had our heritage, and ethnicity stripped away from us, we have a responsibility to not follow in the way of our oppressors, and until we come back to who we are it’s just gon get worst and worst as far as the images and things our kids are subjected and exposed to, I know in Lil Nas X’s mind he sees the 21 million views in two days and swears that’s a good thing but many people say this verse not understanding how real it is. Matthew 16:26-For what is a man profited, If he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Real love for y’all All Praises to the Most High, Shalawam”

Regardless of where one stands on the ‘Montero’ video critically, what can’t be debated is its commercial impact so far.  At writing, the song has amassed over 29 million views (in less than 48 hours), is #1 on iTunes USA, top 10 on Worldwide iTunes, and #2 on Spotify charts (USA).

Those figures should spell well for the tune’s debut on next week’s Billboard Hot 100.  Until then, click here to revisit the controversial clip.

    Facts satanic evil mess should be banned. But the world loves it . What’s considered evil will be considered good and good will be considered evil. Look at the world, tv etc everything the world glorifying.

    • Keith March 29, 2021

      EXACTLY

  4. #TheTruth March 29, 2021

    Blablabla *cites the bible* blablabla.
    Please… so many religious are so hypocrite.
    One of the commandments states you shouldn’t judge. Yet, that’s all they keep doing. Look at your own behavior before b!tching about someone else.
    And he’s doing exactly what the guy wants – getting people talking about him – because he’s clearly desperate for attention and thirsty for some kind of hit. But see when you have talent, you don’t need all that BS, talent speaks for itself.

    I bet he won’t have the prophet mohammed in his video. Let him disrespect the Muslim religion and see what happens.

  6. TRANS RACIAL QUEEN March 29, 2021

    See what would happen if he did something that offended the Muslim religion. He wouldng dare do that

    • #TheTruth March 29, 2021

      Why always mentioning muslims ? This has got nothing to do with them. Why not jews ? Buddhists ?

      You know we live in a world were you can only criticize or make a parody or blasphemy or whatever the case is within your own community.

      A black person making fun of black people is ok. A white person doing so ? Won’t be accepted.
      Jews talking about jews ? It’s fine. You’re not ? You’ll be called out antisemetic.

      And the list goes on and on and on…

      • Shayla Queen 👑 March 29, 2021

        He is NOT a Christian if he’s doing what he’s doing. So by your OWN logic, the original comment still makes sense. Sit down.

      • TRANS RACIAL QUEEN March 29, 2021

        He isn’t a Christian, so your comment about being in the same community is not accurate.
        I mentioned Muslims cause we all know how much trouble there would be.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 March 29, 2021

        @ TRANS RACIAL QUEEN your comment made perfect sense anyway. If Lil Nas X had even SLIGHTED Islam in any way, they would have had him beheaded.

    • D. Boyle March 29, 2021

      Don’t follow your logic … twerking on the devil is offensive to Christians ? Do Christians worship the devil? What am I missing

  7. Abel March 29, 2021

    Who is he and what is a “Jagged Edge”?

    • Shayla Queen 👑 March 29, 2021

      Girl bye 👋🏽

  8. Jay March 29, 2021

    Leave it to a ghey person to be used to push this immoral satanic envelope. These female rappers are already doing so now we have him to add to the mix. Plenty of ppl will join in on this vile behavior and charge it as a “sign of the times” but ppl don’t acknowledge pop culture over time has usually gone from one extreme to the next. Your lives and psyche is being influenced by this whether you embrace it or not.

  9. LM March 29, 2021

    Dear 60 year old has been,
    The devil isn’t real
    Amen

  10. Julie March 29, 2021

  11. Julie March 29, 2021

    • Julie March 29, 2021

      oops

  12. Slick March 29, 2021

    The kid deserves all the wrath after his 15 minutes are up. So for those defending him go ahead and eat it all up. This is plainly disgusting. He is a repulsive human being.

  13. Roberta FlackSabbath March 29, 2021

    Most white Christians HATE black people.

    Most Black Christians just love to judge others.

    As a piece of fantasy fiction, the Bible is pretty good.

    • truthteller March 29, 2021

      Thanks for sharing your expert opinion on “Christians”. You clearly have issues.
