Late 90s/early 2000s rapper Pastor Troy decided to share his opinion on why he doesn’t have a Grammy and chart-topping newcomer Lil Nas X does. Things went left pretty quickly when he threw in several homophobic slurs…but Lil Nas X clapped back with the best response.
As Lil Nas X is currently enjoying his recent Grammy wins, Atlanta rapper Pastor Troy thought he would take the opportunity to inform everyone why he has yet to win the coveted award—and his explanation was filled with homophobia with Lil Nas X as the unexpected target.
Taking to Instagram, Pastor Troy posted the following message underneath a photo of Lil Nas X in his eye-catching, head-to-toe pink ensemble he wore to the Grammy Awards:
“Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY…If this what I gotta wear. They love to push this s**t on Our Kids!! The other day @applebees had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First Thing My 14 yr old Son said was, “F**** Applebee’s” And It Brought Joy to My Heart!! He sees it…their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially. Some may say, “He Making Money!!” Rupaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!!! Integrity is Priceless. Y’all Better open that 3rd Eye and let your Sons Know What Is Real…Or They Ass Gone Be Headed Down That Old Town Road Foreal!!~P.T. #TheyGoneRiiiiiiddddeeeTil theycantnomore #BlackOwnedandIndependent #NotMySons #ItAintWorthIt #Taketheroadlesstraveled #Youwillstillgetthere #DSGB #Wontbeonmypagelong.”
Not to state the obvious here, but Pastor Troy’s last recorded music was back in 2006, which is over 13 years ago. Before that, when he was still actively making music, he didn’t win any Grammys either. Lil Nas X was literally still a toddler back then, so how is that his fault?
No worries, because as he is known to do, Lil Nas X clapped back at Pastor Troy with his trademark since of humor, writing:
“Damn I look good in that pic, on God”
He followed that up with saying that “it’s so sad” that someone still feels this way in 2020…especially a public figure. If Pastor Troy was trying to get some publicity for himself to promote his music, he failed, because all it did was make Lil Nas X an even bigger topic of conversation.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
