Nas X last released music in the form of a ‘Rodeo’ remix in which he teamed up with his namesake Nas. The accompanying vampire-themed video appeared in February, containing nods to The Matrix and Michael Jackson‘s ‘Thriller’.

They debuted the track a month earlier at the Grammy Awards, where Nas X won two awards for ‘Old Town Road’, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Music Video.

In April, meanwhile, Nas X discussed his sexuality, revealing that he had serious hesitations about coming out as gay.







“The honest truth is, I planned to die with the secret,” he told The Guardian. “But that changed when I became Lil Nas X.”
