Atlanta rapper Young Thug is well-known for being a gender-bending artist who doesn’t care what many think about his style or what he says. Case in point, during an interview with Adam22 for No Jumper, the artist — who changed his name to Sex — had some compelling things to say about Lil Nas X announcing he is gay during pride weekend.

While showing his appreciation for the new generation of hip-hop acts, the “Best Friend” crafter divulged that he believes X shouldn’t have revealed his sexuality when Thugger was asked how he feels about the backlash directed towards Nas X following his announcement.

“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world, because these days—motherf***ers is just all judgment,” he said. “It ain’t even about the music no more, Soon as the song comes on everybody’s like ‘this gay ass n***a.’”

Thugger quickly further explained his answer to the question, probably realizing he could face some heat for his statements regarding his opinion the matter by adding:

“It wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it. During Pride [Month]. That was a G’s move.”

These comments come on the heels of Young Thug hopping on the latest remix of Lil Nas X’s viral hit “Old Town Road” — which also features Billy Ray Cyrus and Mason Ramsay.
