Lil Nas X Reminded Parents What "Old Town Road" Is About After He Was Criticized For The "Call Me By Your Name" Video

"You decided to let your child listen. Blame yourself."

Lil Nas X set the internet alight recently after releasing his latest single, and the drama doesn't look like it's going to die down anytime soon.

In case you somehow missed it, Nas dropped the highly anticipated single, "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," which he'd been teasing since last July.

The video for the song was dropped simultaneously, and it seems no expense was spared. But by far the most-talked-about moment was when Nas slid down a pole straight to hell for some, uh, one-on-one time with Satan.

But the video didn't sit well with some and a heated debate online soon followed, with Nas only too happy to clap back.

One thing that critics continuously fell back on was the fact that Lil Nas X first came onto the scene with the smash hit "Old Town Road," a song that was hugely popular with kids.

But Nas quickly shut that down, reminding parents that he's an adult and adding: "I am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. That is your job."

there was no system involved. i made the decision to create the music video. i am an adult. i am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. that is your job.

When another person brought up the same point, Nas reminded everybody about some of the lyrics in the "kids anthem" people were now trying to use against him.

i literally sing about lean & adultery in old town road. u decided to let your child listen. blame yourself.

The lyrics Nas is referring to go: "Riding on a tractor, lean all in my bladder. Cheated on my baby, you can go and ask her. My life is a movie, bull riding and boobies, cowboy hat from Gucci, Wrangler on my booty."

And Lil Nas X made it clear that not streaming "Old Town Road," which is already the most-streamed song of all time, was quite all right with him...

they shouldn’t be playing old town road anyway, we streaming call me by your name now 😌
