Just hours after Drake finally officially announced the release date of his long-awaited next album “Certified Lover Boy” – which apparently has a cover containing several emoji-like images of pregnant women – Lil Nas X jumped in posting a similar for his long awaited next album “Montero”… except with pregnant men.

This is just the latest move from the virtuoso social media character of Nas, who he spoke to. Variety about her cover story earlier this month. He has used both to strike down at enemies, especially the homophobes, advancing his convictions with a rare combination of gall, frankness, and wit. “You are all silent as hell when the n – s devote their entire catalog of music to rap on the fact of sleeping with several women,” he replied on Twitter to one of them criticizing his. “Industry Baby” video. “But when I do something sexual at a distance, I’m ‘sexually irresponsible.’ You all hate gay people and don’t hide it. On a lighter and more characteristic note, shortly after its public release, he tweeted : “I just found out I’m gay and won’t play my music anymore. I’m sorry this shit is wrong.”
In a post on social media last week, the rapper and singer revealed that the album will be released on September 17. Along with the date announcement, Nas also released an album trailer featuring an unreleased song.
“Creating this album has been therapy for me,” Nas wrote in his announcement post. “I have learned to let go of controlling people’s perceptions of who I am, what I can do and where I will be. I realized that the only opinion of me that really matters is mine.
