Rap rookie Lil Nas X is kind of a big deal right now. The hip-hop star has shared a quick look at the immediate success of his newly released 7 EP.
On Friday, Nas went to Instagram to geek out over his new project already becoming the top Apple Music release.
Despite fans urging X to drop an instant album, the rapper recently said his new 7 EP will get everyone prepared for his major studio debut.
“The EP. This EP is going to get everybody ready for this album that’s coming later- it can be 20 songs a day, and then it’ll be like, ‘Oh, 35?’ And then I’ll be like, ‘Oh, wait, oh, I like these ones. I like this one now. Oh, this is like 27 songs.’ And it’s like, nah. But a lot of songs I go in with the intent of finishing, so if I feel like I might want to finish making a song while I’m listening to the beat I’m just like, “Cut the whole thing,” pretty much.” (Beats 1)
In addition to rubbing elbows with major music starts, X is extra focused on trying to make a Drake collaboration go down.
“I really want this to happen. I already know it’s going to happen like Drake to get on the remix of ‘Panini.’ Sh. I talk to J. Prince. He wants me to do a show sometime at the end of this year. Maybe that’ll help. You know what’s crazy, though? I wanted Drake to be on ‘Old Town Road’ remix ’cause it was going to be a hip-hop remix, too. Things didn’t go as planned. This man’s a goat. He’s the biggest inspiration musically for everybody.” (Beats 1)
This week, X finally delivered his new “Panini” single to the masses.
