i think we have to accept that lil nas x is going to be a troll.
ever since he took off that cowboy hat,
he has been on one,
a majority of it has been entertaining while a few instances left me scratching my head.
he is coming out with his album,
on september 17th.
he debuted the album cover:

but he went as far as to do this for “people“…
this is a horror.
this is a tragedy.
this is a reminder.
this is not a fashion statement.
it was to the white slave masters back in the day,
slave masters use to send these pics as christmas cards to their family members.
pregnant female slaves were hung and their stomachs were cut open to see who died first.
families of slaves would be forced to watch their relatives die slowly as they hung from the trees.
abel meeropol wrote the poem “strange fruit“,
which billie holiday sung originally in 1939,
was ( x about the lynching we endured ):
ye used the song on one of his past songs:
remember ^this one said slavery was a choice.
a foxholer sent me the following “fashion statement” the other day…
new yawk is a tough city,
but it’s one of those states that can’t take too much damage with the weather.
we not like texas or florida up here.
any strong gust of wind and the national guard is called.

new yawk is built for light mood swings by mother nature.
we can’t deal with her full-blown temper tantrums like how she do down south.
i knew it was gonna rain,
but i didn’t think it was gonna feel like i was in a whirlpool…
