Lil Nas X announces break from music, to take “a little time off”.
Fame and success can be quite overwhelming. You may not know what it feels like cause you’re not there. Lil Nas X has had a meteoric rise in the music industry since his debut single hit number 1 and broke records, and his music being certified platinum. The 20-year-old rapper has not slowed down one bit since he hit the scene seven months ago. Now he’s ready to.
The new millionaire recently took to Twitter to announce he’d be taking a bit of a break from music but will be back soon. He wrote;
it’s been a wild 7 months and im ready to take a little time off. sorry to everyone attending twitchcon or sandbox music festival, i will not be there. i love you guys and will make it up to you some way
We ask though, why do our beloved artists enjoy taking us unawares? Making break announcements when we least expect them. Just this week, the rapper announced that his recent single Panini had been certified platinum in a few countries including the US. He also shared that his debut EP, 7 had also been certified platinum by the RIAA and hinted at an official video for Rodeo coming soon.
We can’t blame him though, fame can be a bit overwhelming especially if it happens all of a sudden. Maybe he’ll take the opportunity to spend sometime in his “somewhat” relationship which he confirmed to Ellen.
Nas‘s Panini hit a new high this week on the Hot 100, no. 5.
