Nick Young Apologizes to Lil Nas X For ‘Montero’ Diss: ‘I Was Hacked in the Name of Jesus’

Published: Monday 29th Mar 2021 by Rashad

On the “demonic” wings of his latest music video for the song ‘Montero (Call Me By My Name),’ rapper-singer Lil Nas X has been the talk of the music industry – for reasons good and bad.

The polarizing performer has some lauding him for his creativity while others are condemning the clip for its overtly sexual and sacrilegious imagery – a denouncement LNX has been busy retaliating against since the visual’s March 26 premiere.

Among those who have made headlines for criticism of the 21-year-old are fellow musicians Brian Casey (of Jagged Edge) and Joyner Lucas (click here to read), social and political commentator/author/TV personality Candace Owens, and basketballer Nick Young.  And while a number of them received a clap back from him for their commentary, Young is among the first who is apologizing for his statement.

Over the weekend, the retired NBA star took to Twitter to say:

At the time, Young – like most – was under the impression Nike endorsed LNX’s ‘Satan Shoes’ (which reportedly contain a drop of real human blood).  Nike has since dispelled the notion and even issued a lawsuit against the shoes’ creators.

Once word of Nick’s slam made it to the desk of Lil Nas, he hit back with:


As LNX’s response gained traction on social media, Young quickly backpedaled to put out the fire – claiming his initial post was the result of “hacking.”

    He wasn’t thinking about Jesus when he was cheating on his girlfriend or having kids out of wedlock. He needs to worry about his own house before he comments on others. Especially since he’s such a “good Christian”.

    Own your s***.

    Everyone can’t claim hacked once they receive backlash.
