Lil Nas X Announces Upcoming Children’s Book

Lil Nas X Announces Upcoming Children's Book

The book will be titled “C Is For Country.”

Lil Nas X, the diamond certified and Grammy winning artist, is releasing a children’s book next January. The picture book, “C Is For Country,” will feature illustrations by Theodore Taylor III.

“I’m dropping the best kids book of all time soon!” Nas announced on Twitter. “C IS FOR COUNTRY, out January 5, 2021, from @randomhousekids. I can’t wait to share it with you all.”

The book follows Lil Nas X and Panini the pony “on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown,” according to Random House’s website. “Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style.”

According to Lil Nas X, the “Old Town Road” money is running low.

According to Nas’ Twitter, he’s almost out of money and will start releasing new music soon. “Gonna start back releasing music soon,” he said. “The old town road money running out.”

While it may seem crazy that Lil Nas X is running out of “Old Town Road” money, considering that it is one of the most popular songs of all time, he is not getting all of it. Because the main banjo sample is from a Nine Inch Nails song, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross reportedly receive 50% of the songwriting credits. The other half is split between Nas, producer YoungKio, and the writers of all the remixes. This means that Nine Inch Nails receives half of all money made from public broadcast, radio, covers, and a significant portion of streaming.

“The way it was presented to me originally is I got a call from my management saying, ‘We got a call from a panicked manager saying they had used the sample of something off Ghosts,’” Reznor told Rolling Stone. “‘They should have cleared it, but it didn’t get cleared. It’s picking up some steam on the viral Spotify charts. What do you think about that?’ And I said, ‘Look, I’m fine with it. I get how stuff goes. They’re not saying they didn’t sample it. Just work it out, but don’t be a roadblock to this.’”

Despite making a large portion of the money from the song, Reznor insists he doesn’t deserve any spotlight. “It was a material that was used in a significant way and it turned into something that became something else, and those guys should be the ones the spotlight is on,” he said. “They asked if I wanted to do a cameo in the video, and it was flattering, and I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but I don’t feel like it’s my place to shine a light on me for that. I say that with complete respect.”

Nas X claims to be “98% done” with his debut album. Check out a Rihanna approved snippet below.
