The Wild Wild West

The controversy that essentially forced Lil Nas X’s country tune “Old Town Road” into rap/trap conversations has worked out in the buzzing artist’s favor.

After Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on the record to solidify its country western, the official video has been unveiled and it’s a star-studded affair.

Chris Rock, Vince Staples, Rico Nasty, Diplo, Ha Ha Davis, Jozzy all make cameo appearances in what is a slick take on country western movies (with a slanted modern-day twist).

Watch Lil Nas X’s mini-movie (directed by Calmatic) “Old Town Road (Remix)” video up above. The song has reportedly amassed over 1 billion streams to date, as well as four million in sales.
