Lil Nas X baits Boosie and T.I. into giving him some extra streams.
Lil Nas X has the top trending song in the country right now, so it isn't a surprise to see how people have reacted to his success, yet again trying to tear him down with homophobic comments and hate.
On Sunday, DaBaby hopped on stage at Rolling Loud and shared his damaging, ignorant take on people living with HIV and AIDS, as well as gay men. After he earned a well-deserved amount of backlash for his comments, T.I. attempted to back him up by bringing Lil Nas X, who wasn't mentioned during the rant, into the conversation. T.I. said that if Lil Nas X can live his truth, then DaBaby should be allowed to spread homophobic comments. Boosie Badazz also had an opinion on the matter, going live and calling Lil Nas X a homophobic slur before saying he would beat up the pop star if he performed naked, which he's said he wants to do.
