Lil Nas is feeling himself and after the last year or so he’s had, rightfully so, as he talks his shit on his latest single.
With all that the world has endured this year, the “Old Town Road” craze feels as if it’s in the far distant past. Lil Nas X rose to fame after Billy Ray Cyrus jumped on the remix to his viral single, and soon, the entire music industry was changed because of a relatively unknown artist and a country music legend. Following his catapult into stardom, Nas dropped his EP 7 but fans are still awaiting his news of a full-length studio album. In the meantime, the rapper has returned with another single to usher in the winter months as he delivered “Holiday.”
Lil Nas X’s first foray into holiday music is a track where he raps about his rise and how he doesn’t plan on going anywhere—and even if he did “flop,” it’s still better than some artists’ “bests.” If you were looking for a yuletide to sing with your grandparents while slurping eggnog, “Holiday” might not be for you, as its festively horny in nature. “Ay it’s a holiday/ I got hoes on hoes and they out of control” goes the chorus, “Ayy, can I pop shit?/ I might bottom on the low, but I top shit,” sings the openly gay Nas, obviously letting the people know that he likes to both give and receive … presents!
Along with the track comes an accompanying visual that shows Nas X in a futuristic version of Santa’s Workshop featuring a few obvious sponsored plugs from the new PS5.
Man, I snuck into the game, came in on a horse
I pulled the gimmick, I admit it, I got no remorse
Nobody tried to let me in, nobody opened doors
I kicked them motherf*ckers down, they didn’t have a choice
Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think. ISSA BOP OR ISSA FLOP?
