Lil Nas X Took To TikTok To Share His Life Story, And It'll Hit You Right In The Feels
He's done more in four years than some people do in a lifetime.
Which is why his latest four-part TikTok series revealing the struggles he overcame in his life to get to where he is now will hit you right in the heart.
The first part, which he released last week, tells of his initial excitement at being the first in his family to go to college.
In 2018, he began making music and released his first mixtape: Nasarati.
After his grandmother's passing, his battle with depression, and his feelings of isolation in college, he dropped out and moved in with his sister. But then things started going downhill...
He talks about his determination to promote the song on his own with what little money he had.
And after saying no to other record labels that only wanted his song, he signed with Columbia Records in 2019.
But while Lil Nas X's career was taking off, his health wasn't.
In the same year that he signed with Columbia Records, he moved into his own apartment, adopted two dogs, and had enough money that he afford rehab for his mom.
Lil Nas reminded us all of one of the most iconic Twitter moments of 2019: his coming out.
Then he bravely shared some of the incidents that led up to his contemplating suicide.
However, that's where the TikTok saga ends — so far.
