Just a couple years into his career, the “Old Town Road” artist has finally embraced his past as the head of a Nicki Minaj stan account. Lil Nas X decided to represent the fandom by dressing up as Nicki for Halloween. His costume appeared to be an exact replica of a pink cheetah print outfit that Nicki wore in her video for “Super Bass” in 2011.
Unsurprisingly (and unfortunately), there were a lot of people who didn’t like seeing the rapper dress up as a woman, which included the man who feels the need to give his 2 cents on everything: 50 Cent.
After seeing photos of Lil Nas X’s costume, 50 decided to ask his fellow Queens native to “come get” the rapper and stop his antics.
“What the f**k, Nikki come get him !!! Lol,” 50 tweeted.
In response, Lil Nas X simply reminded the rapper that his costume has absolutely nothing to do with him.
“Why u in barb business,” Lil Nas X asking in a now-deleted tweet.
Before becoming an overnight success in the music industry, Lil Nas X ran an account dedicated to Nicki Minaj called “Nas Maraj.” While he initially denied being behind the account, it looks like Lil Nas X is finally ready to scream his love for Nicki Minaj from the mountain tops.
“Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm (f— with me) no more. but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.”
Although he doesn’t quite come out directly in the song, Lil Nas X sings about embracing your individuality and coming clean.
“Embracing this news I behold unfolding,” he sings, “I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time/But I look back at this moment, I’ll see that I’m fine.”
Kudos to him!
What do YOU think about Lil Nas X’s costume choice? Did he nail it or did he go overboard?
