Before They Were Famous:

The Rich Life:

The last half a year has been a whirlwind ride for Lil Nas X that could otherwise only be scripted for a movie. He went from making songs in his bedroom with just over $5 dollars in his bank account working minimum wage jobs, to having the number one song in the world and performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people of all ages screaming every word to his song. Makes sense know knowing that he used to sit and study how to go viral and how to use the internet as a marketing tool. Most recently, Lil Nas came out as gay on the last day of pride month, and I have a feeling the brave move will inspire so many kids out there who are feeling a similar way. And before we get into the video we just want to say how happy we are for him at this channel that he’s living his truth and we’re so proud of all of his incredible success. He’s also breaking down barriers and getting a lot more love than was previously expected from the world of Country and Hip Hop.

about being a one hit wonder when he dropped his follow up single Panini proving and would
double down on his virality by hooking up with the legend himelf, Gordan Ramsay for
the Panini Remix… Well they technically just made a panini together
but they remixed the sandwich The last half a year has been a whirlwind

to say how happy we are for him at this channel that he’s living his truth and we’re so
proud of all of his incredible success. He's also breaking down barriers and getting
a lot more love than was previously expected from the world of Country and Hip Hop. We did a Before They Were Famous on Lil Nas
X right as Old Town Road was blowing up and he actually answered some of our questions
via email… I’ve got a feeling his inbox is a little
bit crowded now a days but of course there has been a ton on new info to update you guys
on and that's what we do here. What’s going on guys? It’s your boy Michael McCrudden, here for
you here with you an Updated Before They Were Famous. So much more information has come out since
his break though and I've never seen someone finesse the entertainment industry quite as
flawlessly as Lil Nas X and ascend the ladder to the top of the game as expertly as this
man – in, well forever. He will definitely make my list as one of
the most famous people of 2019 probably nabbing the number 1 spot. As we do here, I’ve got a trivia question
for you guys that I’ll answer a little later in this video: “Which band was sampled on Old Town Road?” Place your guesses down below, now let’s
get into the video! Lil Nas X was born Montero Lamar Hill on April
9, 1999 in the Grady hospital in Atlanta Georgia. Nas comes from a big family with 6 brothers,
5 of them his biological, and 4 sisters, 2 of them his biological. He says that growing up around so many siblings
they would fight all the time. At around the age of 6 his parents split up
and lil Montero was staying with his mom and grandmother in the Bankhead courts public
housing complex in Atlanta. I looked this area up on YouTube and it appears
it has since fallen on some hard times and looks abandoned. At around the age of 10, his dad won custody
through what he referred to as a court battle, and Nas moved to Austell Georgia to live with
his dad. At around the age of 14 he moved to Lithia
Springs, Georgia, a small community with a population of around 15,000 people. Lil Nas told us that he lost contact with
his mother shortly afterwards and still doesn’t know what she is doing today. But I have a feeling that she knows exactly
what HE is doing, wherever she is. It was Lil Nas’ father who inspired him
to begin making music. His dad was a warehouse worker, but was also
a gospel singer with a beautiful voice and growing up around that, Lil Nas was always
interested in music. In school, Lil Nas was academically gifted
and was advanced in all of his classes, but math was his favorite. Luckily he gets to put that to use now adding
up all of his streaming numbers… we've done his The Rich Life and the kid is earning bank! He attended Alfred Blalock elementary school,
Lindsey middle school, and pebble brook high school where he graduated at the top of his
class. But Before rapping on tracks, he was wrapping
burritos, working at Taco Bell. He also worked jobs at Six Flags and Zaxbys,
all within the span of a year so that he could put the money back into his music dream. He says that it wasn’t just his dad’s
musical abilities that inspired him, but the fact that he helped pay for Nas’s phone
bill, which was likely pretty high based on his amount of tweets and instagram posts he
was firing out at the time. Lil Nas X has since stated: “By paying my phone bill, he allowed me
to promote my music heavier on the internet through my twitter account.” “My twitter mutuals helped me out a lot
too.” In his spare time, Lil Nas also loved watching
cartoons, but before rapping, Nas loved to play instruments. He used to play the drums and Trumpet before
shifting his focus into writing songs. On coming up with his rap name, he told us: “it was originally lil nas just to be ironic
cause every new rapper’s name has lil lol.” “Kinda got stuck with lil after building
a small fanbase.” “Added the x later on, standing for the
amount of years until I feel like I will be considered a legend” In terms of his rap career, it all happened
pretty fast and Lil Nas described it as: “Honestly, I got bored last year and made
a rap song. People liked it.” “I kept making them. But I didn’t start taking music seriously
until about my 5th song.” His first ever online was song called Shame
and his first mixtape was called Naserati. Lil Nas put out close to 20 songs online before
his big break would hit with Old Town Road. But Lil Nas was no stranger to the internet. He used to sit and study how to go viral and
how to use the internet as a marketing tool. In fact, there has been many rumors swirling
around the internet that Lil Nas himself had already gone viral pre OTR, but for different
reasons besides music. The internet recently found an old Nicki Minaj
fan account called @NasMaraj that was allegedly run by Lil Nas. The account was running since October of 2014,
and became a pretty large page growing to over 100k Twitter followers through memes,
viral tweet threads, choose your own adventure games, and tweeting about Nicki. The NasMinaj account was suspended for violating
Twitter terms, so he a new account called “NasMarai” was created, subbing the i
for the j, and he had some pretty viral tweets on there receiving close to 100 thousand RT’s
on this: As well as this one with close to 30k retweets: The owner of the account was even interviewed
by Buzzfeed after one of its memes went viral. But it was eventually suspended for “tweetdecking.” We’re still not 100% sure if it’s Lil
Nas’s account but the dots seem to line up pretty perfectly. He's denied it but some online publications
were able to trace these posts to his existing Twitter page so it looks like the cats out
the bag. Either way, Lil Nas knew how to game the internet. After high school, Lil Nas decided to attend
college, getting accepted into West Georgia University. He attended classes for 8 months but dropped
out to pursue his music career full time. Although at the time, he wasn’t exactly
sure how he was going to make it happen. He would sit and dream about his success every
night. His dad wasn’t very pleased with Lil Nas’s
decision to drop out of college, stating that there are a million rappers in the industry
and the chances of making it are one in a million. And while this is true, Lil Nas felt like
he could be the one in a million. He told us that he honestly never had a big
inspiration, but that the internet as a whole inspired him. Besides Nicki Minaj fandom, Lil Nas spent
his nights promoting his songs on Twitter and making memes with his music in the background. And he is an incredible meme maker. At first, nothing was working. He told Time magazine in an interview that
he would: “probably get three hours of sleep, staying
up on the internet trying to promote my music at my sister’s house before coming back
home.” “I would sleep on the floor – I didn’t
want to come back home because I knew my parents would be mad at me.” At the time, his sister had just about had
enough of Lil Nas and his music dreams. He knew that if something didn’t happen
soon then he would have to rethink his strategy. One day, Nas stumbled across a beat on YouTube
that sounded sort of like a Country song with trap drums over top. So he bought the beat from Young Kio’s online
beat for 30 dollars. Now THA, is a steal. And the unique nature of the song, which was
called Old Town Road, began to catch on through the app Tic Toc with thousands of memes being
made. People would transform into cowboys when the
beat dropped and the “horses in the back” line was starting to be captioned everywhere. On December 4, 2018 Lil Nas X posted a snippet
of the song now titled “Old Town Road” onto his Instagram. People started to get curious about what sounded
like a country trap song. A week later Nas released the official song
onto his Instagram using the app Triller with the caption yeee haw Videos also using the hastag yeehaw, which
all have the song playing in the background, had millions of views within a few months
on Tic Toc and Twitter. Then Justin Bieber posted a screenshot of
the song and took it to the next level. The song was streamed so much that it landed
at number 19 on the Billboard Hot country charts and it seemed like he was set for superstardom. But Billboard removed the song from the country
charts claiming that it didn’t embrace enough elements of today’s country music. Then the internet came to Lil Nas’s defense
and the song was trending on Twitter a day later. But riding in on a horse came Billy Ray Cyrus
with a fresh cowboy hat on and he reached out to Lil Nas about hopping on the remix. The remix was released onto YouTube and streaming
services on April 4 and the audio has close to 300 million views at the time of this recording. The song ended up going number one in the
world and becoming one of the most viral sensations that we’ve seen in recent times. Lil Nas signed a deal with Columbia and most
recently he released his debut studio EP “7” which includes the songs Panini and Rodeo
with Cardi B. In our original conversation with him, he said he wanted: “To just keep making the music I feel like
making, never want to be put in a box. Get into acting, modeling and some other things.” And he did just that, because the EP was charting
on the country, hip-hop and rock charts. And on the final song “Closure” he hinted
at his announcement that would later come on Twitter. No more denying this guy. And we have a feeling that he’s here to
stay and will be around for a long time. I mean, Old Town Road even had a 9 Inch Nails
sample on it. And there you have your answer from the beginning
of the video. But as for the rest of the story, well you’ll
have to wait and see because this is before they were famous. As always, my name is Michael McCrudden, be
sure to check out some of our other bios and let us know who is up next in the comments
