U.S rapper Lil Nas X recently opened up about not feeling respected in the hip-hop industry.
He explained, during an interview with XXL that he doesn’t feel as respected in hip-hop or many music places in general, adding these are communities that he is a part of, whether people would like it or not.
“This is something that I wanted to do because, not that my entire album is rap, but there are rap tracks on my album. I am a rapper. I am a pop star. I am a gay artist. But it’s like, I belong in these places, you know?”
This comes amid pushback Lil Nas X has gotten from the likes of Boosie, Pastor Troy, T.I., and Dave East over the course of this year.
