Hot New Hip Hop says Lil Nas X‘s support of Nicki Minaj is something he has tried to hide in the past, however, in recent months, the rapper has come out as a full-fledged fan of the “Superbass” rapper. According to the outlet, Lil Nas X tried to deny that he had a stan account for Minaj until one day when he finally admitted to it.
The publication claims Lil Nas X has doubled down on his love for Nicki Minaj, in fact, he dressed up as her for Halloween. He recreated her outfit from the classic “Superbass” video shoot, which was one of Nicki’s biggest songs.
Additionally, it took a lot of work for Lil Nas X to impersonate Nicki because his outfit was more than just a costume. He even added prosthetics to match her curves. He captioned the photo with the line, “NAS MARAJ.”
Thus far, the costume has been praised by many celebrities and social media users, with the exception of 50 Cent, who took the opportunity to put the rapper on blast, albeit in a light-hearted way. 50 Cent wrote in the comment section, “what the f*ck, Nikki come get him! lol.”
Lil Nas X, who came out as a gay man last year amid his meteoric rise to success, asked 50 Cent, “why u in barb business?” As most know, 50 Cent has touched on Lil Nas X a number of times ever since his song, “Old Town Road,” became a huge hit.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, not long after Lil Nas X came out as gay, 50 Cent used the news as a way of putting his former G-unit member, Young Buck, on blast.
Curtis Jackson, who also goes by the name, 50 Cent, posted a picture of Young Buck posing with a transgender woman, and joked that Young Buck probably didn’t even know he was hanging out with a “man.”
As it was previously reported, Lil Nas X revealed he was gay last year in a decision that was met with praise but also jokes from particular members of the hip-hop community.
