Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X, The Trailblazer: A Poem

By Waddie G. September 2, 2023

He’s the cowboy who’s made his mark,
Riding musical trends with a spark,
Lil Nas X, the name on everyone’s lips,
A hip-pop star in a new age of trips.

Started with a remix that shook the scene,
“Old Town Road” became a viral dream,
Bridging the gaps and breaking the mold,
With a mix of genres, now we’re sold.

But he’s not just a one-hit wonder, you hear,
This young man’s got talent that’s clear,
From “Montero” to “Industry Baby”, he’s shown,
He’s a true hitmaker that’s grown.

Controversy may try and take him down,
Critics may refuse to see his crown,
But Lil Nas X stands tall and true,
Unafraid to be himself, through and through.

So here’s to this young trailblazer,
For breaking boundaries, for being a raiser,
Of bars and standards in the music game,
Lil Nas X, we’ll remember your name.
