Young Thug Says Lil Nas X Shouldn’t Have Come Out as Gay: “Muthaf*!kas Is Just All Judgment”
In a new No Jumper interview uploaded Sunday (July 14), Thugger offers his thoughts on Nas X's rise to the top of the Billboard charts. The YSL Records founder, who recently hopped on another remix of "Old Town Road," gave his fellow ATLien all the props for coming out as gay during Pride month. However, Thugger, who toured with J. Cole last year, did admit that he feels Nas X shouldn't have been so open about his sexuality because "Muthafuckas is just all judgemental."
“It ain’t even about the music no more," Thugger explains. "Soon as ["Old Town Road"] comes on everybody’s like, ‘This gay ass nigga.’ Niggas don’t even care to listen to the song no more."
“I believe whenever you’re trying something new, it’s always going to get some kind of bad reception. For example, when rap started, or when rock and roll began. But with country trap, I in no way want to take credit for that. I believe Young Thug would be one of the biggest pioneers in that," Lil Nas X told Time back in March.
