Lil Nas X became viral because of country rap song ‘Old Town Road’ that he uploaded on TikTok. Then, he performed it with an iconic country music star Billy Ray Cyrus. It currently has around 300 million views on YouTube. 

His real name is Montero Lamar Hill, but he created a stage name: “It was Lil Nas because when I first started rapping I wasn’t as serious so it was like, ‘Okay, every rapper’s name is starting with Lil lately.’ So I kind of got stuck with it. I added the X later on after I was more serious. It would stand for the amount of years, I felt, until I’m at the status where I’m considered legendary.”
