The rapper says he never wanted to reveal his big secret and it wasn’t his intention to come out publicly because he feared his position in the American Hip-Hop scene.

However, after the massive success of Old Town Road, Nas didn’t want to hide the fact about his sexuality from his fans so decided to disclose it.

For and against followers

After the revelation, as Nas expected, the internet was on Lil Nas. Some trolled and made memes out of the situation while some turned the situation into a witch-hunt to find his early hints and worse, some were totally against him. He started getting negative comments from people about his sexual orientation.

Lil Nas explains his decision to ‘come out as gay’ to Kevin Hart!

Nas recently appeared on the show HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted where he was being frequently “interrupted” by Kevin Hart. Hart is infamous for making anti-gay jokes and comments. Nas was asked why he came out right after the success of his single “Old Town Road” and before he could answer Hart interrupted, “He said he was gay! So what?”

Nas, however, answered calm and composed,

“It’s not like I was being forced. It’s just like knowing growing up, I’m growing up to hate this s***. I’m not supposed-“.

To which Hart continued to interrupt.”Hate what? Why? Why are you growing up to hate?”. Nas then went on to explain his position,

“Homosexuality, gay people. Come on now, if you’re really from the hood you know. If for me, the ‘cool dude with the song on top of everything,’ to say this at any other time, I’m doing this for attention in my eyes. But if you’re doing this while you’re at the top, you know it’s for real. It’s showing it doesn’t really matter, I guess.”
