Part of its longevity has to do with how well Lil Nas X has been able to hold onto the cultural conversation via whatever wacky memes are now blowing up on the internet.

Shortly after making that comment, Thug clarified that he felt Lil Nas X wasn't wrong to come out, more that he worries about the ensuing controversy and backlash. Like, motherf**kers just judging.

Lil Nas X, a rapper who is known for pointing out weird internet trends, is joining in on the Area 51 "raid" party: On Tuesday, he dropped a new animated "Old Town Road" music video and it reveals a hilarious rescue operation to free aliens at the top secret facility. "He's young and backlash can come behind anything". The video features even more cultural fixtures, like Thanos and Keanu Reeves. That was the best time to do it. "So I don't even care like, I ain't even caring to get in his way". I've dealt with this shit before. I know what he going to be dealing with. It's a amusing joke, and one a lot of people are on board with: 1.3 million people said they are going to the event.

"The video arrives just five days after the surprise drop of the 3rd official remix of Lil Nas" chart-busting single.

When "Old Town Road" rapper and chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 artist Lil Nas X came out of the closet during the tail end of Pride Month last month, he was met with an overwhelming amount of support from fans who know how groundbreaking it is to have an out and visible figure in the hip hop scene. "I want him to get a trillion dollars, I want him to get more money than me".
