Lil Nas X Dropping New EP Next Month
After the success of his mega-hit single "Old Town Road," Lil Nas X is ready to show what he can do on a new project release. The Georgia rapper just announced his new EP will be dropping next month.
Nas X made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday (May 18). He posted a snapshot from his newly-released "Old Town Road" video along with the caption, “'7' the EP! next month." He didn't offer anymore details on the upcoming release, but X has been spotted together with a number of artists in the past few weeks including Tory Lanez, Usher, YBN Cordae and others.
The revelation comes just a day after X put out the long-awaited official version of the video for his hit single. To call it a video might be an understatement. Some major coins were definitely put into the production, which features cameos from Chris Rock, Vince Staples, Rico Nasty, Diplo, social media star HaHa Davis and more. In the video, X and feature artist Billy Ray Cyrus start out in the old west and end up magically transported to modern times where hijinks ensue.
Nas X's rise to fame is something to be marveled at. He recently revealed during an interview with Nardwuar that he had less than $10 in his bank account before "Old Town Road" popped off. “That's me. I’m not with them anymore, but shout outs to Wells Fargo, for making me broke,” he joked.
