Lil Nas X responds to homophobic post, "Damn I look good"

Lil Nas X is one of the few openly gay rappers in the industry and is taking whatever hatred is thrown at him in stride.

A member of the rap group Down South Georgia Boyz, Pastor Troy, posted to Instagram a homophobic rant, directed at Lil Nas X. 

Parts of the post read, "Guess I won’t be winning a Grammy… if this what I gotta wear," in response to Lil Nas X's Grammy Award Ceremony ensemble. 

Lil Nas X attends the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards.

Lil Nas X won two Grammy Awards for Pop Duo/Group Performance and Music Video – at Sunday’s ceremony

Troy’s most-successfully charted album to date is 2002’s Universal Soldier, which peaked at 13 on the Billboard 200 and no. 2 on the R&B chart.


Troy continued, “Some may say, ‘He making money!’ RuPaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD! Integrity is priceless. Y’all better open that third eye and let your sons know what is real… Or they a** gone be headed down that ‘Old Town Road’.”

Lil Nas X kept it light hearted with his response, simply writing back, "Damn, I look good in that pic on God."
