Since Lil Nas X‘s rise to fame, lots of rumors have filled the internet of him being a diehard Nicki Minaj fan. Nas X has also been alleged to have ran a very successful fan account for Nicki Minaj which many credit to have helped his career soar to great height. Rather, Nas X says these rumors are untrue. According to him, blogs have made them up without him speaking about it.
The Old Town Road rapper who recently broke records when his hit song logged an incredible 19 weeks at number one on the Hot 100 is now promoting his other single, Panini. The American artist recently performed the song at the just concluded MTV VMAs. Appearing in an interview with Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez, Nas X spoke about being seen as a one hit wonder and also addressed the Nicki Minaj fan rumors.
When asked if he was a Nicki fan, the rapper seemed annoyed by the question but took some time and then said “Somewhat but that’s not how… it’s music things.” Nas X had in an interview with NPR addressed the rumors of him running the fan account. He said;
“It’s like a big misunderstanding and it’s not one that I even want to give the time, because I’m never putting someone as the face of my career. So I don’t even speak on it. I just don’t even acknowledge it, really. I know even more things are being made up and they’re gonna be out there. It is disappointing when a big blog will post something without me talking about it but, I mean, it happens.”
While other sites (Billboard and HNHH) have corrected their initial posts involving the story, New York Magazine seems to have proven the authenticity of the rumor. Watch full interview below:
