Montero Lamar Hill (born April 9, 1999), known professionally as Lil Nas X is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. He came to international attention for his country rap breakout single "Old Town Road", which achieved viral popularity on the video sharing app TikTok in early 2019. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. In June 2019, Nas X came out as gay, becoming the first person ever with the number one hit to do so. At week thirteen at the top, it became the longest-running hip hop song on the chart. As of July 2019, it has remained there for fifteen weeks, making Nas X the only openly gay artist to do so. His debut EP, 7, was released on June 21, 2019. His second single from 7, "Panini", remains in the Rolling Stone’s Top 100 top ten after debuting there July 3, 2019.
