Following the arrival of Lil Nas X's new song "SUN GOES DOWN," the rapper has addressed Nicki Minaj's fanbase after some of them questioned why he name-dropped her on the track.
In "SUN GOES DOWN," which sees him reflecting on his life pre-fame, the rapper even references his fandom. "I’d be by the phone / Stanning Nicki mornin’ into dawn / Only place I felt like I belonged / Strangers make you feel so loved, you know?" he sings in the first verse. The video for song even includes a brief moment of him tweeting from his old Twitter username, @nasmaraj.
Some of Nicki’s fanbase believed that Lil Nas X was only name-dropping her in the song for attention, which he was quick to shoot down in a tweet. "To the barbz who feel i’m using nicki’s name for attention, the song i released last night was recorded last year," Lil Nas X wrote on Twitter. "And it’s about my life which 6 of those years were dedicated to nicki. it’s no fake love. but i understand how it looks so i will no longer mention her."
