Lil Nas X Denies Using Nicki Minaj’s Name For Clout After #Barb Attack: ‘I Will No Longer Mention Her’

Published: Friday 21st May 2021 by Rashad

Over his short but storied career, Lil Nas X has not been shy about his admiration of Rap Queen Nicki Minaj.

A proud and celebrated #Barb (the name of Minaj’s fan base), LNX has actively participated in forums and threads that support the femcee – and even dressed as the ‘Super Bass’ star for Halloween 2020.

As attention is drawn to the 22-year-old’s latest music video, ‘Sun Goes Down’ (click here to watch), some of his fellow #Barbz have begun accusing him of using Nicki’s name for clout – particularly a scene in the clip where he reflected on his time as his younger self being a Barb before launching his music career.

So many of the discouraging messages landed on his desk, he took to Twitter to announce he will no longer publicly support his fave.

Taking to Twitter Friday (May 21), LNX responded to hateful messages from some #Barbz by saying:

“To the barbz who feel i’m using nicki’s name for attention, the song i released last night was recorded last year. and it’s about my life which 6 of those years were dedicated to nicki. it’s no fake love,” wrote the rapper on Twitter. “But i understand how it looks so i will no longer mention her.”

His announcement spurred a bevy of support from #Barbz who wished he would continue honoring the Queen.  Even the official Young Money account chimed in and said:

“Nah ignore em.”

    So how quickly did Nas X rack up two #1 hits?

    How long did it take Nicki?

    Who holds the record for the song with the most weeks at #1?

    Who acts overtly sexual and trashy: Both of them.
