            This is clearly a bridge to end racism, why don't we all just embrace this moment. They ripped it off the billboards quick because it would have hit number one, their actions speaks clearly.

                              How come it's never a shock when other races are hopping on all these Rap and R&B tracks time after time again, trying to mimic everything that people think we do,..... Low key they don't accept Lil Nas X. Just looks good on camera to say.....if it wasn't for us music would be nothing at all.

                                I've never heard of this guy but his song A Boy And A Man is a good song and an actual country song. Lil Nas on the other hand is not a country song at all. You cant have mostly hip hop beats and expect people to say it's a country song.

                                  Let's see... the country elements on OTR,

                                  1) banjo sounds
                                  2) twang in singers voice
                                  3) storytelling
                                  4) country lyrics
                                  5) whistle

                                  Hip hop elements:

                                  1) trap beat.....

                                  Seems to me the song has more country elements than hip hop.

He gave a neutral and nice non answer and pulled the interviewer back to promoting his album (the only reason people interview is to tell people about what they have coming up).
