He wrote: “I love joking but on a serious note making this album was therapy for me.

“I began healing many unchecked wounds, facing skeletons in my closet i never wanted to, fighting internally every day and crying persistently, MONTERO is truly my baby. thanks for the love.”

Fans quickly rushed to comment about the bravery displayed by the rapper, as well as his new album which features 17 brand-new tracks.

One said: “I am beyond proud of u!!!” while another wrote, “This album was fire bruh, thank you!”

Another penned: “We’re all so proud of you for doing and making this! it’s incredible and we can’t wait to see what you do next!”

Fans also started wonder what the star’s stage name really means.

Montero L. Hill is Lil Nas. While his new album is a symbol of him, his stage name is Montero.

On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Lil Nas opened up about his stage name and revealed the story behind it.

He stated, “When I first started making music, I was like, ‘I want to have some fun with it. And every new rapper’s name was Lil Lil Lil. What if Lil Nas was my name? That would be hilarious.

“So I was like, ‘Alright, bet. I’ll be Lil Nas.’ And I added the X later on.”


Lil Nas also revealed that his mom named him after a car.

“So my mom wanted the car, the [Mitsubishi] Montero, and she never got one … So yeah, I’m named after a car,” He explained.

Boosie Badazz, on the other hand, has been subject to a lot of backlash following homophobic comments he made while criticizing Lil Nas’ pregnancy album cover.


He tweeted: “Nas X WTF you just don’t stop. I think he’s going to turn around and suck one of his background dancers’ d**k on national TV.”

Fans were quick to come to the Old Town Road singer’s defense, as they took to the comments section.

One person hit back at Boosie: “Why do you care about what he’s doing? Worry about yourself.”

Another added: “Go monitor your blood sugar and not what he’s doing,” while a third chimed in, “Why are you so pressed about this man that is never worried about you?”

One fan suggested Boosie is helping market Lil Nas, as they wrote: “At this point you’re promoting this man more than you promote yourself.”
