Update (Oct. 27, 2021): Lil Nas X’s father, Robert Stafford, is defending his son after the rapper was subjected to a homophobic rant from Boosie on Saturday. Responding to Boosie, who suggested that Lil Nas X should commit suicide, Stafford called out the disgraced musician for hypocrisy.

“How the hell you’re a gangsta rapper promoting drugs, gun violence, degrading women and getting high every video talking about you’re for the kids man sit your old man looking ass down,” Stafford wrote on his Instagram story, according to The Source. “The game has past you. We real Bankhead over here. Not like the guy who claims it.”

Boosie still refuses to feel any remorse for his hateful words.

“Don’t get mad at me cause your son came out like that. I know it hurts,” he wrote on Twitter.

In a 2020 interview with Variety, Lil Nas X said his father was one of his harshest critics when he first came out. But the father appears to now have a better understanding.    

“We have become closer,” the rapper said. “I mean, especially now because I don’t have anything to hide. It was a shock for him. It’s still the beginning phase. I’m not comfortable bringing a guy around yet.”

Original (Oct. 25, 2021): Boosie shamelessly touted homophobic rhetoric while responding to a message from Lil Nas X on Saturday. The disgraceful musician went on a hateful tirade after Lil Nas X claimed to be working on a collaboration with Boosie. 

"So, I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro," the 22-year-old singer said, clearly trolling his fellow rapper, on Instagram Live. "I got this song with Lil Boosie finna come out. Fire, I ain't even gon' lie, for real. Song with Boosie finna come out."
