American rappers and songwriters Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow are heating up our summer with the music video of their new single titled Industry Baby.
A few days ago, Lil Nas X released a prelude to the Industry Baby’s official music video. In the prelude, Lil Nas X can be seen as the accused. Mind you, he also played the judge, the defense lawyer, one of the jurors, and the prosecutor who asks the accused while holding the controversial shoe, “This is about much more than the shoes. Lil Nas X, are you gay?”
Lil Nas X then asks, “What does this have to do with the shoes?”
But the judge tells him to answer the question so he admits that yes, he is gay, and that his mom knows this. He was then, sentenced to five years in Montero State Prison.
The Industry Baby’s music video starts with Lil Nas X being sentenced to five years in Montero State Prison.
But what do you think he did as an inmate?
He, well, formed a dancing group inside the prison. There was a part on the music video where they danced in the prison yard. This particular scene is reminiscent of the viral CPDRC Dancing Inmates in the Philippines except that Lil Nas X’s group danced buck naked and I bet everyone’s all for it! At least going by the comments I’ve seen on social media so far.
But I’m digressing!
Anyway, Lil Nas X would later stage a prison escape thanks to the help of Jack Harlow—his fellow Montero inmate—who slips him a small pickaxe. Watch Industry Baby’s official music videobelow:
Take a Daytrip and Kanye West co-produced Industry Baby. The music video was directed by Christian Breslauer and it was written by Lil Nas X himself.
We have gathered some of the funny comments on Twitter regarding Industry Baby. Many of them noted the appearance of Colton Haynes on the music video as well as someone else who looked very much like Jason Momoa.
