Lil Nas X is not going to be ostracized by the rap community simply for coming out at least according to record executive and producer Irv Gotti, who says times are a changin’.
The Murder Inc. Records honcho in New York City says it ain’t that big of a deal not these days, anyway.
The 20-year-old “Old Town Road” sensation felt inspired to tell the world his truth Sunday night after performing in front of a massive crowd in England, going on social media on the last day of Pride month to announce he’s gay.
Irv, who’s produced tons of hits for hip-hop titans over the past 25 years, says it would’ve been much harder for Lil Nas X to come out back in the day but now, it’s not too shocking.
WNBA superstar Brittney Griner says it’s “awaesome” that Lil Nas X has come out as gay telling TMZ Sports, “I think it’s real big!”
28-year-old Griner is openly gay, she’s engaged to longtime girlfriend Cherelle Watson and knows first hand how tough it can be to come out when you’re a big star under the microscope.
