Horses in the Back: Who is Viral Rapper Lil Nas X?

“I Got the Horses in the Back” – Lil Nas X

If you like myself are an Apple Music subscriber and have an eye for detail, you may have noticed an unfamiliar name gracing the charts and searches over the past few weeks, that name is Lil Nas X and during the days in which Lil Nas X isn’t trending the title of his viral hit “Old Town Road” is or even the first words of the song “I Got the Horses in the Back“.

Lil Nas X has generated a label war in such a small time with many believing the Atlanta rapper will receive a 7 figure recording contract. Why is this?

Lil Nas X’sOld Town Road” is the reason. A country inspired trap record that samples Nine Inch Nails‘ 2008 record 34 Ghosts IV dropped in December and has already received over 12 million streams on Spotify alone after the Red Dead Redemption clip-laden official video went viral on YouTube. “Old Town Road“. Lil Nas X has been the latest to benefit from the fast-rising nature of hip hop hits today with users helping him take the song worldwide using the fun app TikTok as well the countless Country and Cowboy Memes and Dance Videos set to the song.
