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.
People tell him to go to hell…he did 😏— ᔕIᗩᕼᑎᗩᖇᗩGOOᗪᗷYE (@siahnaragoodbye) July 23, 2021
People want him to go to jail for the shoes…he did 🤣 now what do they want?? #lilnasx #IndustryBaby #freelilnasx https://t.co/r2vWAyr67t
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.

Showing as always that he’s going to do whatever he wishes, with no concern for what anyone thinks, at all.
Goes hand-in-hand with those who don’t care what he dies, at all.
What’s that, rap for black gays? The boi has potential but is limiting himself to a mixture of cliches. Not going to be a real star until he goes above the cliches, like MJ
ahah he is already a huge star. No need for your approval!
Musically speaking, he is just a little above the noise. Using cheap tactics like nude “dancing” to rise “controversy” and attention works only in a limited circle, when there is no actual music or any ascending lyrics. And frankly speaking, his nudes are not eliciting interest in most viewers but he is apparently deluded we all want him LOL
you are reading with your emotions. He was a rapper who was gay but with how he’s going about getting his clout he’s just gonna get typecaste as the gay rapper.
Semantic and will prolly go over alot of people’s heads but being a rapper whose gay isnt the same as being the gay rapper.
It seems artists these days (the last 30 years or so) have to achieve fame before they can create what they want to. Madonna did bubblegum pop songs in a ditzy voice and took every opportunity to seize public attention: antics, controversial lifestyle, odd-looking outfits, dating weirdos, etc., until she was on top and wanted to do Broadway. Gaga followed that trajectory, ending up at the Oscars. I like that Lil Nas X is throwing lots of gay imagery in the faces of the general public, daring somebody to say something. He was fortunate to get national recognition early on,… Read more »
