Yesterday (Aug. 25, 2021), 22-year-old rapper Lil Nas X took to social media to announce the release date for his upcoming debut album, titled Montero.
“Creating this album has been therapy for me,” Lil Nas X tweeted. “I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who i am, what i can do, and where i will be. i’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”
“MY DEBUT ALBUM ‘MONTERO’ IS YOURS SEPTEMBER 17th,” Lil Nas X added along with the butterfly and two hearts emojis.
“Breaking news: power bottom rapper, Lil Nas X and his caucasian friend led a prison escape this morning. This comes just months after the talentless homosexual was sentenced to five years in prison,” Nas says as the anchor. “Investigators say anyone who comes into contact with the power bottom should contact authorities immediately.”
The clip then segues to Nas driving through the desert in a teal convertible, on his way to the town of “Montero.” After stopping at a phone booth, Nas then falls through darkness, all while a snippet of a song, presumably from the album, plays. “I want/ Someone to love me/ I need/ Someone who needs me,” Nas sings on the track.
