Young Thug Teases A Remix Of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road"
Almost a week after Lil Nas X tapped Country veteran Billy Ray Cyrus for the remix of his country trap hit “Old Town Road,” Young Thug teased his own version of the teen’s breakout single.
Today (April 9th), Thugger took to Instagram live to preview a snippet of the remix to his followers. The Atlanta rapper posted a clip of his verse on the remix with Nas X so they already know what time it is know what time it is. Thugger didn’t have to say much in the caption for his fans already know what’s up.
" @lilnasx #ŸÈÉHÆ," Thug wrote.
The remix to the remix comes after Billboard said the original "Old Town Road" version wasn't country enough for their Hot Country Songs chart. Lil Nas X's viral song went on to take the No. 1 spot on their Hot 100 chart. With the controversy revolving around the classification of the song, Lil Nas X made it clear that he doesn't feel the need to say his song belongs to one genre or another. He also credited Young Thug for pioneering country trap. In a recent interview with Time, Lil Nas X went on to say:
“The song is country trap. It’s not one, it’s not the other. It’s both. It should be on both [charts],” Nas X told the publication. “I believe whenever you’re trying something new, it’s always going to get some kind of bad reception. For example, when rap started, or when rock and roll began. But with country trap, I in no way want to take credit for that. I believe Young Thug would be one of the biggest pioneers in that.”
Lil Nas X also confirms the upcoming remix with his own emoji-based announcement. Although there's no confirmation of the official release date, Thugger teases that it could drop tomorrow. Check out clips from Young Thug's remix to "Old Town Road" below.
