If you liked Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” there’s some good news. A new version of the country rap hit just dropped with Young Thug and Mason Ramsey added to the track. Check it out below.
Montero Lamar Hill, professionally known as Lil Nas X, released the song on Friday. The new song is a remix of the original remix with country star Billy Ray Cyrus. “Old Town Road” has proven itself to be a social phenomenon and currently holds the title of longest-running Hot 100 hip-hop single of all time, according to CNN. So, why remix the song?
Some like the saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” but its seems Lil Nas X related more to, “If it worked once, it will work again” and added two new artists to the hot track. Most hip-hop fans will recognize Young Thug as a veteran who’s been in the music game for almost 10 years, but who is Mason Ramsey?
While people may not recognize the name, they probably remember hearing about the Walmart yodeling boy. Well, that boy is Ramsey. The 12-year-old gained popularity after a video of him performing in the retail store went viral in early 2018. Since then, not only has he been the basis of countless memes, he went on to play at Coachella that same year and landed a record deal with Big Loud Records.
Now, he’s on a track with one of the hottest up and coming rappers of this generation. From Walmart to Billboard charts. Talk about a glow-up.
