Lil Nas X was quick with the clap back.
Lil Nas X’s Halloween costume had another rapper in his feelings.
The “Old Town Road” rapper took to Instagram to drop a picture of himself dressed in a Nicki Minaj costume for the holiday. The 21-year-old was dressed in a Minaj-style signature blonde wig accompanied with plentiful cleavage peeking out the top of a tight pink dress that accentuated his waist and hips.
But Harlem rapper Dave East was not in favor of the costume and posted his disdain for the outfit via social media. He said,
“And y’all was mad at me about this n—” wrote Dave East per Lovebscott.com The publication says in another post, East added,
“Bati mon bun up!!!!” “I gotta move to Jamaica, @PopcaanMusic on my wayyyyy chubble.”
“One of the Caribbean’s most popular vacation destinations for tourists worldwide, Jamaica was another shocking country to top our LGBTQ+ Danger Index,” says journalist Lyric Fergusson. “Jamaica ranks as the third-worst Caribbean nation for members of the LGBTQ+ community behind Barbados and Saint Lucia. This is largely due to Jamaica’s ‘buggery law,’ which is leftover from the colonial era and allows for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, including hard labor. In fact, Jamaica was called ‘the most homophobic place on Earth’ by Time magazine in 2006 and LGBTQ+ people are sadly still the victims of homophobic violence today.”
But Lil Nas X quickly clapped back at East with this message, caught by Lovebscott.com,
“It’s ‘batty man’ n—-s can’t even be homophobic the proper way smh butchering the hell out of the patois,” he adds. “Bro I don’t bother a soul in this industry. All I do is tweet and make bangers. Leave me alone Damn.”
Lil Nas X took home four Billboard Music Awards last month, including the Top 100 song for his huge hit “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus.
