Sparking an outrage on the internet, Lil Nas X is being dubbed as a counterculture icon by many after he dropped the highly-criticized video of ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)'. In it he can be seen giving a sensuous lap dance to Satan along with riding a pole down to hell. If this was not enough, the Georgia native recently also announced his customized Nike “Satan Shoes” in collaboration with clothing brand MSCHF which led to a whole new controversy. The new shoes reportedly contain 6ccs of red ink and one drop of human blood in its sole.

In no time, the 21-year-old award-winning rapper was compared to veteran rocker Marilyn Manson as the latter has been a part of several infamous controversies mainly due to his sociopath image. Rapper Joyner Lucas also ridiculed Nas X for his Grammy-winning song ‘Old Town Road’ and tweeted that since the hit track is a kid’s anthem, the singer should not have dropped ‘Montero’ without any disclaimer.

Is Lil Nas X a modern Marilyn Manson shock rocker?

Rapper Joyner Lucas sparked a new debate after Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero’ video made news for all the wrong reasons. Taking to Twitter, he shared, “I think the biggest problem for me is the fact he dont understand “old town road” is every kids anthem. Children love him for that record. They tuned in and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped some left field ish & all our kids seen it. Smh.”

However, many pointed out that ‘Old Town Road’ had lyrics such as “Riding on a tractor, Lean all in my bladder/ Cheated on my baby, You can go and ask her/ My life is a movie, Bull riding and b**bies/ Cowboy hat from Gucci,” which did not seem like a kid’s anthem. However, since Nas X was already getting dragged due to promoting Satanism, several agreed ‘Old Town Road’ was indeed gibberish. Speaking about Satanism, Nas X also got compared to Manson over the music video of ‘Montero’.

In the past, Manson has torn Bible on MTV, has been accused of sexual assault by several women and has time and again courted controversies over his comments on religion. Now, Nas X has been accused of hurting the sentiments of religious people, all thanks to his controversial satanic-inspired music video and his newly-announced Satan Shoes.  



 



 



 

‘My kids heard ‘Old Town Road’ and now they’re satan worshippers’

The internet decided to brutally slam Nas X over his new work by comparing him to Manson. One user stated, “Marilyn Manson, ozzy osbourne , lil nas x . Nothing new, just crappy music tying to get a response. Praise Jesus.” Another added, “It's crazy the generation I grew up in watched Marilyn Manson literally tear pages out of the bible on MTV and no we pussified over a damn music video & pentagram on a sneaker lol. I wonder why? Wouldn't have anything to do with @LilNasX being gay would it? LOL.”

The next one shared, “You should just make fun of Lil Nas X for making lame music, but don't help him gain more popularity by turning him into some "dangerous" counterculture icon. He's not Elvis. He's not even Marilyn Manson. His music really sucks & he is a moron.” One posted, “Did Lil Nas X just become the Marilyn Manson of hip hop? Yes, yes he did!!” One individual tweeted, “Society needed a new Marilyn Manson, can't say I expected that to be lil nas x.” One added, “I dont even listen to Lil Nas X, nor do i really care about this situation. But i do think it's odd that a vast majority never got on Lil Uzi's case for being such a big Marilyn Manson supporter, & using "demonic" symbolism in song titles/tattoos/pics. But when Nas X does it…..”

A few then took to Twitter to talk about ‘Old Town Road’. One user said, “I’m a devout christian. my kids heard old town road and now they’re satan worshippers. thanks a lot lil.” Another user tweeted, “I blame all of you for this. I told you that Old Town Road song was terrible, boring gibberish. You made this semi-literate dirtbag into a musical sensation for no reason, and now he’s promoting actual Satanism to your children.” One user concluded, “Old Town Road starts off with him talking about “lean all in my bladder” and him cheating on his ol lady. If y’all made that your children’s anthem, that’s on YALL.”
