Who is Robert Stafford? Lil Nas X’s father slams Boosie Badazz over homophobic rant
After asking DaBaby to leave Lil Nas X alone in July 2021, the latter’s father Robert Stafford once again took to his Instagram on Tuesday, October 26 with an intention to take a dig at Boosie Badazz. Boosie has gone on a homophobic rant multiple times in the last few months slamming Lil Nas X over DaBaby’s homophobic rant at the Rolling Loud Miami festival.
Days after Boosie slammed Nas X on Twitter, Robert Stafford decided to take a firm stand for his rapper son as he shared a lengthy text on one of his Instagram stories. However, it seems Boosie was in no mood to stay mum as he took to his Twitter to hit back at the ‘Montero’ hitmaker’s father. A few days ago, the Louisiana native had tweeted that he got “international love and respect” so the hatred he was receiving won’t really affect him. He had also suggested Lil Nas X to commit suicide in another post.

Who is Lil Nas X’s father?
Lil Nas X’s father is Robert Stafford. He has been identified as a gospel singer who also tried to make it big in the music industry. Robert Stafford is professionally known as R L Stafford and he dropped a gospel album in 2018 called ‘One Man, One Mic, One God.’ On Instagram, Stafford has close to 7K followers. Lil Nas X has always been more attached to his father as his mother is apparently a drug addict.
Lil Nas X had a religious upbringing and therefore, being gay was not okay with his father. The Grammy-winning rapper in 2020 told Variety about how things got better eventually after he came out as gay in 2019. “We have become closer. I mean especially now because I don’t have anything to hide. It was a shock for him. It’s still the beginning phase. I’m not comfortable bringing a guy around yet.” Stafford gradually understood and got comfortable with Nas X’s sexuality. In 2019, he confessed to BBC Breakfast about how hesitant he was in coming out as gay. “I mean, it’s just something that I was considering just never doing it, ever, just taking to the grave or something. But I don’t wanna just live my entire life especially, you know, how I just got to where I’m at just not doing what I wanna do. And I’m also, I feel, opening doors for more people.”
What really went down between Lil Nas X’s father and Boosie Badazz?
After staying quiet for months, Lil Nas X’s dad took to his Instagram and brutally dragged Boosie Badazz for his loud comments. “How the hell you’re a gangsta rapper promoting drugs, gun violence, degrading women and getting high every video talking about you’re for the kids man sit your old man looking a** down”, said Stafford. He further said, “The game has past you. We real Bankhead over here. Not like the guy who claims it.” He then concluded with the word “CHAMPIONS” written in a huge size in the same story. Bankhead apparently refers a neighborhood in west downtown Atlanta where Lil Nas X grew up.
Boosie then decided to hit back at the rapper’s father. Taking to his Twitter account a few hours later, the 38-year-old emcee stated, “DONT GET MAD AT ME CAUSE YOUR SON CAME OUT LIKE THAT LOL I KNOW IT HURTS.” In July this year, Boosie had defended DaBaby's homophobic comments at Rolling Loud Miami and called Lil Nas X "the most disrespectful mother**ker in the world." He later had said, “If I’m at the awards and he go up there naked, I’ma drag his a** offstage and beat his a**” after Lil Nas X joked that he and Jack Harlow would perform their song ‘Industry Baby’ in their birthday suits at the VMAs.”
Boosie most recently called out Lil Nas X after the later in his Instagram Live video joked about collaborating with Boosie that left him fuming. Boosie went on a homophobic rant tweeting, “Stop trolling me fa**ot lol!! u a whole bi**h playing with a gangsta smh u can keep sucking d**k n gettin f**ked n you’re a**n peace n #uhateyourself i would too if i was you lol nasx if you #commitsuicide you would do this world a huge favor nobody wants u here.” After deleting this tweet, he later posted another tweet saying, “#thinkaboutit NOBODY WANTS U HERE!!” along with a funny video mocking Nas X in a different post.
