Old Town Road is ripping up the charts like a pitbull on meth at a cat kennel. Facts. But Did y’all see this bullshit about Lil Nas X “Postmating” Billy Ray Cyrus a Maserati? People. It’s 2019. 7 weeks of chart top topping domination doesn’t net enough cash to pay for an oil change on a Maserati. And that’s really fucked up, but it’s also not the point we’re making here.
If Postmates and Maserati wants to pay for a Lil Nas X publicity stunt, cool. But if you’re gonna front like Lil Nas X just broke a crumb off his royalty checks to bless Billy Ray, 2 things need to be corrected “posthaste”, Postmates.
- Billy Needs Acting Lessons. Dude is about as believable as Donald Trump describing how he is “self made”. C’mon.
- The music industry has to be renovated. By our calculations Lil Nas X has probably made less than $100k GROSS on that track before paying out fees ( which will easily exceed 60%), BEFORE splitting with producers and collaborators. So unless he scooped that whip for $20k….GTFOH
