Lil Nas X has made a slight transition into the fashion world. The “Old Town Road” artist collaborated with Wrangler clothing line to launch his capsule clothing collection which was inspired by his hit single.
The collection includes t-shirts, jeans, and other denim apparel that is also considered an extension of his one of his lyrics from the song. “Cowboy hat from Gucci, Wrangler on my booty”. Wrangler released a statement describing the collaboration saying it’s “fresh remixes of classic Wrangler styles for the kind of modern cowboy that can’t be put in a box.”
Many country music fans are not happy about this partnership between Lil Nas X and Wrangler and they are threatening to boycott the company.
FU….RAP trying to control all music styles will not stand…you can’t RAP WILLY NELSON NOR BLACK SABBATH. HIP HOP SUX. BOYCOTT WRANGLER…Oh I guess I’m a racist. Boo hoo

Racists boycott Wrangler for partnering with Lil Naz. Shit! I can’t think of the last time I even bought some Wrangler jeans, but I’ll sure buy a pair for the black of it now.
