Lil Nas X Teases “Industry Baby”
Lil Nas X knows how to make a hit record and sell millions of copies. The 22-year-old isn’t just an ordinary superstar, though, he’s a mega star. For the last few days, the rapper has been active on his social media platforms. In particular, he’s released a few cryptic TikTok videos that suggested he had a court appearance in relation to his Satan Shoes lawsuit.

The “Holiday” rapper satirised the entire court case, acting as himself, his lawyer, the opposing counsel and the judge. Furthermore, the star puts himself on trail for selling the Satan Shoes but soon the topic of his sexuality becomes the main focus. When the judge demands to know if he identifies himself as gay, Lil Nas X confesses the truth. Soon he’s sentenced to 5 years in jail and gets thrown in the big house. In true Lil Nas X fashion, he’s doing everything in a big way.
