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 young self ahead of the release of his new single, ‘Industry Baby’.

Earlier this week the rapper teased his new Kanye West-produced single, which will arrive tomorrow (July 23), featuring a video skit ridiculing his court appearance in a “Devil’s Shoe” copyright infringement lawsuit. The clip was labeled as the prelude to the single’s video.

Today (July 22), the NAS X, who is currently 22 years old, took to Twitter to share a letter dedicated to a pre-pandemic, “20-year-old Monteiro.”

“I wrote a song for us,” he began the note. “I know sometimes you feel like it’s all down here. I know your sexuality has made you feel excluded among your peers. I know that from being the greatest song in the world It’s weighing you down until you’re stuck in your apartment. And I know if you hear the phrase ‘one hit wonder’ once again, you might get burned.

Nas X urges his younger self to “keep going” and “stop feeling sorry for yourself”. “But I need you to keep going,” he wrote. “I want you to feel like you have the opportunity to be the person you needed to grow up. I want you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And I want you to remember that you But the only person to believe in is you.”

“Industry Baby”, produced and featuring West in addition to Jack Harlow, is set to release on the same day as West’s new album Donda.

Meanwhile, Lil Nas X defended Madonna after the singer faced criticism for comparing the rapper’s kiss with a backing dancer to her kiss with Britney Spears in 2003.
