Lil Nas X has found himself in the hot seat.
For, the ‘Old Town Road’ rapper is facing backlash for attending a packed party as the coronavirus pandemic rages on.
Full story below…
Rapper Joyner Lucas is the latest name to weigh-in on Lil Nas X‘s controversial video for his new single ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name).’
In the cinematic clip, the 21-year-old is depicted as being cast out of heaven and sliding down a pole straight to hell where he’s shown twerking on Satan.
Following the likes of a Jagged Edge star, Candace Owens, and more, Lucas has voiced displeasure over the visual.
And he’s made clear that his gripe centers on the supposed impact on the youth.
His words below…
Efforts to sabotage Lil Nas’ career have intensified this week…and he may have given his enemies the ammunition they need to do it.
Just leave Lil’ Nas X alone. He hasn’t done anything wrong. Always trying to bring a brotha down. Jealous MFs. #LilNasXIsOverParty

A tangled web waits below…
So, we’re exposing Lil Nas X by pointing out connections to a twitter account he probably doesn’t use anymore, posting screenshots of islamophobic tweets he supposedly made, and use screenshots to out him as secretly gay? After he tweeted he deserved the hate? Ok. Childish but ok pic.twitter.com/yfxzHwtYte

6 months after ‘Whole Lotta Choppas’ star Sada Baby caused a whole lotta controversy for resurfaced tweets bashing the LGBT community and wishing death on Beyonce (click here to read), he’s back in headlines for more of the same – this time wishing death of chart-topping singer-rapper Lil Nas X.
After Nas slammed the vile comment as ‘f*cked up’ (and his devoted fans rushed to assist), Sada issued an apology for the vile comments.
Hear his statement inside:
Love her or loathe her, one thing that can’t be knocked is Iggy Azalea‘s grand hustle.
Despite virtual absence from radio since 2016, the now-independent diva – thanks to undeniable bops and high quality music videos – continued to be one of the most consistent female rappers in the history of the genre.
That consistency may translate to praise and adoration from her dedicated fan base, affectionately called #Azaleans, but it hasn’t always morphed into commercial acclaim – a truth Azalea took to Twitter over the weekend to suggest isn’t just happenstance.
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.
Lil Nas X set headlines alight over Palm Sunday weekend when he announced a partnership with MSCHF to release 666 pairs of ‘Satan Shoes’ – a Nike Air Max that reportedly contained a drop of human blood in each pair (as we reported here).
Due in stores Monday (March 29), the collector’s item nabbed headlines for its satanic design which featured upside-down crosses, a pentagram attached to the shoe laces, and “x/666” in red embroidery on each pair.
As news of the kicks treaded on trending status, some commenters began slamming Nike for their involvement with the endorsement – a rumor the shoe giants quickly squashed.
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.
Keyshia Cole may have disregarded rapper O.T. Genasis‘ vile insults about her hygiene (click here to read), but her sister, Neffeteria Pugh, apparently has plenty of time for the shenanigans.
Just a day after taking to Instagram to insinuate he was gay by branding the ‘Cut It’ star a ‘messy bottom’ (click here to read more), Pugh reignited her attacks after he indicated he’d sold drugs to her mother – reality TV star/recovering addict Frankie Lons.
The back-and-forth bickering between the two reached levels of pure savagery. Look below if you missed any of the updated action:
Despite being no stranger to getting flack for his commentary on other artists, the last few weeks have seen producer extraordinaire Jermaine Dupri in the headlines more than usual for his remarks rubbing people the wrong way.
Not even a month after being slammed for saying many of today’s female rappers sound like ‘strippers’ (click here to read more), the 46-year-old is now being criticized for a perceived diss toward Lil Nas X after he broke Mariah Carey‘s longstanding record for longest running #1 in Billboard Hot 100 history (click here to read more).
Taking to Twitter, Dupri praised Carey – his longtime collaborator – when he said:
Needless to say, the ‘you can’t sit with us’ bit rubbed some the wrong way.
