Kid Cudi Wants To Help Lil Nas X , Get Rid of the ‘Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop’. Kid Cudi Wants To Help Lil Nas X , Get Rid of the ‘Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop’. Lil Nas X's debut album, 'Montero,' dropped on Sept. 17. When he released the tracklist earlier this month, many people wondered why he didn't feature any Black men on the album but did collaborate with Black women. "Maybe a lot of them just don't wanna work with me," he said in response. Lil Nas X seemed to say that some people may not want to work with him because of his sexuality. The rapper came out as gay in 2019 and has received backlash from the hip-hop community. In fact, rapper Boosie used slurs against him and threatened to "beat [Lil Nas X's] a--.". In a recent piece for 'Time' magazine's "100 Most Influential People," Kid Cudi praised Lil Nas X. There's a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he's going to break that sh-- down, Kid Cudi, via 'Time'. We have to stand with him. I'm going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support, Kid Cudi, via 'Time'. To have a gay man in hip-hop doing his thing, crushing records -- that is huge for us and for Black excellence, Kid Cudi, via 'Time'. The way he's unafraid to make people uncomfortable is so rock 'n' roll. He's a true rock star, Kid Cudi, via 'Time'
