Nas X shared more insight saying, “And he did, he added some horns and stuff, right?

Kid Cudi recently shared that he’s super keen to collaborate with Lil Nas X because he loves everything that the ‘Montero’ singer stands for.

Cudi said in an interview, “What he’s doing is what we need right now. To have a gay man in hip-hop doing his thing, crushing records — that is huge for us and for Black excellence. The way he’s unafraid to make people uncomfortable is so rock ’n’ roll. He’s a true rock star.”
