Lil Nas X pens letter to his younger self ahead of new single ‘Industry Baby’
Lil Nas X has penned a heartfelt letter to his younger self ahead of the release of his new single, ‘Industry Baby’.
Earlier this week the rapper teased his new Kanye West-produced single, which arrives tomorrow (July 23), with a video skit poking fun at his court appearance over the “Satan Shoe” copyright infringement lawsuit. The clip was labelled as a prelude of the single’s video.
Today (July 22), Nas X, who is currently 22 years old, took to Twitter to share a letter he dedicated to a pre-pandemic, “20-year-old Montero”.
“i wrote a song for us,” he began the note. “i know sometimes you feel like it’s all downhill from here. i know your sexuality has made you feel like an outcast amongst your peers. i know going from having the biggest song in the world to being trapped in your apartment is weighing heavy on you. And i know if you hear the phrase ‘one hit wonder’ one more time, you might combust.”

Nas X went on to urge his younger self to “keep going” and “stop feeling sorry” for himself. “But i need you to keep going,” he wrote. “i need you to realise that you have the opportunity to be the person that you needed growing up. i need you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And i need you to remember that the only person who has to believe in YOU is YOU.”
