Early Life

Lil Nas X was born in Lithia Springs, Georgia on April 9, 1999. In homage to her favorite car, the Mitsubishi Montero, his mother gave him the nickname Montero. Nas and his brothers moved into a notoriously violent and drug-filled public housing project in Atlanta when their parents divorced when they were six years old. They then lived with their mother and great-grandmother. After a custody dispute that lasted for about four years, Nas and his elder brother moved to the suburbs of Atlanta to live with their father and stepmother

According to Nas, he knew he was gay since he was five years old. As he grew older, he saw the harassment and discrimination that people who came out had to face and decided that he would never come out. Nas had to go to church since his father was a gospel musician. Nas also stated at one point, “I even thought, ‘If I have these feelings, it’s just a test. A temporary test. It’s going to go away. God is just tempting me.”

Nas focused only on his studies throughout high school. Being a huge fan of Nicki Minaj on the internet was his primary concern. Engaging with fellow Minaj fans on Twitter under the handle @nasmaraj, Nas gained insight into the art of attracting attention on social media.

Nas didn’t enjoy college, so he enrolled at the University of West Georgia to study computer science. Writing songs, he discovered that he enjoyed making music. Much to his father’s dismay, he chose to stop attending school to concentrate on it.

Net Worth

Lil Nas X is worth $9 million. His career as a musician brought him wealth. He helped his music rise to a new level of success by utilizing his social media skills. He has promoted his music on social media through a variety of challenges and conflicts. He has repeatedly reached the top spot on the Billboard Top 100 thanks to this.


Nas resided with his sister after dropping out of college and released his music on the internet. He observed the rise in popularity of videos called “country-trap,” which combined hip-hop from the South with country music. Using a $30 beat he bought online, he wrote his country trap song, “Old Town Road.” He told Rolling Stone, “It was the first song I genuinely formulated.” “I was like, ‘I gotta make it short, I gotta make it catchy.'”

The song was uploaded to SoundCloud by Nas in December 2018. His social media skills enabled the song to gain popularity on TikTok and other websites. “Old Town Road” entered the Hot 100, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and Hot Country Songs Billboard charts in March 2019. After that, it was taken from the national chart. Nas’s song did “not embrace enough elements of today’s country music,” according to Billboard’s official justification. However, many people questioned whether Nas’s color had any bearing on the choice. (Billboard stated that race was not a factor).

The song peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 during this dispute. His collaboration with Billy Ray Cyrus on a remix of “Old Town Road” was released on April 5, 2019. With the assistance of Cyrus and other remixes, “Old Town Road” broke the record for the longest stay at the top of the Hot 100 chart—19 weeks.

In March 2019, following the success of “Old Town Road,” Nas signed a record deal with Columbia Records

The concept that being gay meant one was not worthy of salvation was explored in the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video, which featured imagery associated with Christianity. Nas stated, “The love outweighs the hate by like a hundred,” even though the video and a tie-in release of “Satan Shoes” caused outrage online. Nas’s skill with social media helped him to draw attention to his work and take aim at his detractors. The song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at number one.

Coming Out

Nas decided to come out as gay as his fame grew. He told his father the truth after coming out to his sister and brother first. After first inquiring as to whether Nas was being enticed by the devil, Nas’s father eventually came to embrace and firmly support his son.

At the close of Pride Month, on June 30, 2019, Nas came out in public. He came out as gay after telling his audience to “listen closely” to his song “C7osure (You Like)” at the Glastonbury Festival, where he was performing.

Nas was aware that disclosing this information may make some of his hip-hop and country music colleagues and fans hostile. Rappers have made negative comments about him that are homophobic, criticizing the attire he has worn to red-carpet events. However, he stands by his choice. In an interview from 2021, Nas clarified, saying, “I honestly felt like it was kind of my obligation. particularly if I intended to advance.”
