The debacle began on Saturday when Lil Nas joked to his 11 million Instagram followers that he was collaborating on a song with Boosie, even though he knows that Boosie despises him. Boosie has made frequent public pronouncements disapproving of Lil Nas’ sexual orientation.
“So, I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro,” Nas X said in the IG story. “I got this song with Lil Boosie finna come out. Fire, I ain’t even gon’ lie, for real. Song with Boosie finna come out.”

When Boosie learned that he was being jokingly trolled by Lil Nas, the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, rapper went volcanic, hurling a torrent of hateful language at Nas X.
Boosie has been kicked off Instagram three times in the past year or so for obscene and sexually explicit material that he posted on the platform. But he seems unafraid of being exiled off of Twitter as he doubled down on his homophobic rant on Saturday.
Boosie posted an unrelated clip of ESPN host Stephen A. Smith on Twitter. “Let’s be nice. You don’t have to go there. I mean, you’re not wrong, but you didn’t have to say it,” Smith says.

Boosie then followed that tweet up with the following two, which have since been deleted.
Nas X did not directly respond to Boosie’s bashing of him, but he did post this cryptic tweet, fans believe, as a way to let Boosie know that he’s unbothered by Boosie’s hateful rhetoric.
i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life. i can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.
