Lil Nas X was down to his last $5 in the bank when he dropped his novelty track "Old Town Road". Now he's worth 6 figures and he's giving back.

Billboard booted the rapper off the country music chart after listening to the lyrics of "Old Town Road" and determining the track did not meet the qualifications for country music.

But the Atlanta rapper hit the jackpot when country music superstar Billy Ray Cyrus recorded a remix to "Old Town" and the track rocketed to the top of the charts.

Nas X thanked Billy Ray by gifting him a brand new Maserati GranTurismo Convertible worth $180,000.

Rumor has it that Nas X is also thanking Billy Ray's youngest daughter, Noah Cyrus (pictured above), for agreeing to play his beard to silence those pesky ghey rumors.

The 20-year-old is flush with cash after signing a new deal with Wrangler jeans for a denim clothing line that is available today, according to Elle.

Wrangler was listening when Nas X rapped "Cowboy hat from Gucci, Wrangler on my booty." The legendary jeans company didn't hesitate to reach out to the country rapper.

The affordable collection includes denim button down shirts with "Old Town Road" written across the back and an assortment of graphic t-shirts with prices ranging from $39 to $129.

According to Wrangler, the collection is designed with "fresh remixes of classic Wrangler styles for the kind of modern cowboy that can’t be put in a box."

"Old Town" still holds the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 after 7 weeks. That's quite an achievement for a gimmick.

  • Seldomseen

    So happy for his come up. Spend your money wisely youngin!

  • Soda

    Me too. I like the way he stepped in to help the youngster. Maybe Country music will stop being so segregated now.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yep ...... Good combo together !!! I agree

  • Let them eat cake

    love how he's just being himself. Some of the first cowboys were black.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He earned and deserved it!!! Beautiful.

  • bb1812

    Loving every bit of this. Hope he invests in something(s) & has good ppl around him.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    That’s how you know he making bank . Salute to the Jitt’s success . Get that ??

  • GAPeach

    Did I read this right? He's now worth 6 figures, and purchased a car for someone ELSE for $200K?

  • Fire & Ice

    I have yet to really listen to this song. My son heard the tail end of it this morning and was like go back.....I was like to what ?. Anyway congrats young man but I would have gifted Billy a nice watch and pocketed the rest of my money ???.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Secure the bag young man!

  • Fire & Ice

    You read that correctly...thats why I said I would have gifted Billy a watch ?. Now once those chips really got right, I would have gifted him something like this.

  • CaramelDrop

    I love this! I’m going to buy one of those shirts and support this young brother.?

  • Gloria

    That money will only last so long young man.
    I don’t want to wish anything on him but he performed his second single at rolling loud and the majority of the crowd was walking away while he was doing it ?

    Plenty of “one hit wonders” have invested in themselves and are doing well (like the rapper chamillionaire). I hope he is taking note of that just as a precaution. Best of luck to him tho!

  • LLC

    awww that is so sweet of him. He seems like a respectable young man. I like him and I love his music.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I had tew scroll byke up to reread....hmmm...why would he give a Maserati tew a man whose pockets are deeper than his. Is it me or shouldn’t that shidt be the other was around??? Maybe the label bought it. I suuure hope sew

  • n1kk1a

    Any this rate it’ll be gone in a month. ?

  • Michelle Peele

    I like the song too

  • CookieMobster

    This song is my ENTIRE SHIT. Props to this young man for not being forced into the rap "box". Black folks can and need to do other thangs beside trap, f hoes, drink lean, insert any CRAP in a rap song here. IJS ?

  • CookieMobster

    YUP. This is my ring tone toooo ?

  • CookieMobster

    I love this too. He ain't being forced into no boxes. ?

  • GAPeach

    This is why people need someone with some smarts in their corner once they start making money. He could have put this away for when his gimmick gets old to these folks. Shoot, he could always use a house.

  • Fred G sanford

    I seriously doubt if he gifted out $180k car, if anything he paid up the lease on it for a year or at least that’s what he did if he’s smart

  • candy

    Right ?

  • Allihave2say

    Lil Nas X - Brother please sign all your own checks and read your bank account every night before going to sleep. Please buy yourself an affordable house and a car that you pay off in full. Buy one restaurant. Popeye's or Chick Filed A. When you hire an accountant invest in Quickbooks and monitor you money. Avoid all gold diggers especially the pasty one pictured above.

  • Allihave2say

    Now if we can gets some pants pulled up by next year….!

  • BingBangBoom

    They say an artist makes .99 for every 144 streams.. Dude has a nice amount of change on him. Now landing deals.. Good job brutha.. Now let that be the end of the high priced gifts for a while.

  • SandraRose

    It could also be a PR stunt by the dealership. Everyone is using this kid.



  • Reenaface

    Nas X thanked Billy Ray by gifting him a brand new Maserati GranTurismo Convertible worth $180,000.

    Damn! What happened to a simple thank you dinner. Billy Ray can afford to buy his own Maserati. Why do I feel like the Cyrus family is about to start treating Nas X like their magical negro.


    Wrangler moved fast on this - this a perfect example of how the power and influence of Hip Hop translates to mega publicity and huge profits.

    Last year Wrangler and Lee were spun off (cut off) from VF Coporation an Apparel company ( Vans, The North Face, Smartwool, Timberland and JanSport, and about 30 other apparel brands) due to years of sluggish sales bringing down the Market Value of VF Corporation.

    Although still under the VF umbrella Lee and Wrangler are now a separate publicly traded denim company.This viral song was an opportunity to attract the Z/Gen Y market to an old brand and expand to a newer generation.

    Nas X fell into the right time and opportunity, he had an idea and he acted in it.How many times have you had an inspiration, a reflection of brillance, and AHA moment. Dont waste it.Dont wait for your ship to come in, you better swim out there and get it.

    Your ideas are divine inspiration, the universe is talking to you.


    Popeyes lol lol, so true. Gold mine, a good investment as long as you put the correct amount of work in on location research.

  • Clobaby_

    Literally happy for him and his success! The song is actually really catchy!

  • Reenaface

    Bump a watch, Billy Ray you get a sit down dinner at Olive Garden with some to go plates for the rest of the Cyrus family. Got to watch your coins, shoot wealthy people still use coupons to go grocery shopping that's how they keep their money going.

  • Logan Roberts

    Goodluck young man and please invest wisely. Hopefully the industry doesn't chew you up & spit you out.

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    I like the song! It works!

  • Joy King

    As he should’ve. Billy Cyrus is the only reason that song is even tolerable to listen to. I’m happy for Nas X success though. I love to see people happily living out their dreams. No matter how long it lasts. Enjoy the moment to the fullest and stack all the money you can.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I wonder what he bought his new girlfriend?

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Good look young black man! I am so glad that Nas X didn't go toward the typical rap gangbang, shoot em up, hoe suck my dyck.....f ur mama and kill them niccas.....type lyrics. That's why Wrangler jumped on that. His song is like a breath of fresh air...and it's fun, funny, cool, and catchy.

    There is also nothing wrong with him giving back to the man who helped him get to where he is. I am glad that a young BLACK man and an older WHITE man can unite, get money together, and be example that WE ALL...can pay it forward to each other regardless of rave and color.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly! But Billy Ray’s daughter culture vultured her way for a few years why can’t he?

  • Vonda K

    Thank you.

  • Vonda K

    PR stunt. He didn’t buy him that car.
    People are so gulliable.
    Is there something in the water I’m Atlanta because why all the rappers look so petite and under nourished? Lil is Nas X boots look like they more than him.
    I don’t get the hype of the song. But hey I’m old school.

  • Vonda K

    Yep. Which if true he’ll be broke.
    Trust this gift is a PR stunt.

  • Renee26

    OMG I HOLLERED at that messy ish about the beard!!! Pesky ???

    Congrats young man on alllll of your success!!

    Who knew Gucci made cowboy hats?? Go figure

  • Renee26

    Miley made good music for a minute... Ion know what happened

  • Renee26

    Only yt boys will be wearing those wranglers...still ?

  • CookieMobster

    I agree. I am from a suburb south of ATL and we got plenty of black country cowboys here. It ain't nothing to see a bunch of country black folks at Wal-Mart. Not cuz they are coonin but because they are doing them and what THEY think is cool. As a black dude I am sure its kinda hard to step out looking like Garth Brooks or something. Every time I see one I say hell yea!! You looking good today brother. Be you!!!!!!

  • Renee26

    Both... Chick fil A is a gold mine too...they might pull the religious card on him and dissect his lyrics for things they don't agree with to keep him out.

    I just hope the young man invests in something good

  • the guest

    I loved this young man and his style and success. I love that Billy Ray Cyrus threw his white privilege and weight behind him to stand up against the racists in country music. Lil Nas X is going to make strides in country music and culture.

  • Renee26

    Let long as some coins are attached

  • CookieMobster

    You better SAY IT!!!

  • the guest


  • the guest

    Lil Nas X is going to end up marrying the Cyrus daughter in the photo.

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

  • Fire & Ice

    You ain't lying ???

  • Renee26


  • Topic Influencer

    He is gay. I think HE said he was gay previously on Twitter when he was an official Barb. But hey. Marry her.

  • Topic Influencer

    They already had one. His name was Mike Will Made It

  • Fire & Ice

    That was way touch money to be spending on a gift. I don't want this kid to end up broke in two years.

  • Topic Influencer

    I think he has claimed gay previously

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    you can't be worth six figures and gifting out six figures. Billy needs to give it back and have a financial heart to heart with his young protege.
    I am happy for his success. I hope it continues.

  • Renee26

    I wouldn't be surprised but it doesn't really matter to me... Auntie is hilarious!

  • chan chan

    He’s an idiot, just pay the man and call it a day.

  • chan chan

    Thanks for clearing this up because i was going to be pissed

  • MsPam

    Black folks want to close the wealth gap between yt folks, I have a ideal STOP making the yt rich

  • Renee26

    Ohhhh that's right... He is the one that was running the fan page or something like that ? That's why he was ashamed... Lordt... Boy just be you!

  • hi-liter

    Good for him. BRC went to bat for this guy.... got the country music folks to change they minds about the song.......for all we know He jumped on the record pro bono, and to me he put that country swag on it. So yeah, Lil Nas X was blessed and he showed his appreciation....I mean we all know BRC and his daughter can buy A lot of them damn cars, However it’s the Principle.....he ain’t got much but he STILL showed Appreciation, some people are just like that, y’all can’t hate on that.

  • TeamCowboys

    I’m happy for him! He doesn’t come off cocky or full of himself from the success of this song. I hope he has good ppl by his side, or at least ?? lol.

  • davine puddin

    This song reminded me of young black dude on his horse trotting along northside and 17th. Looking cool and swagged out

  • davine puddin

    He can do a duet with jason aldean...chillen on a dirt road is my jam

  • Reenaface

    What happened to him it's been years.

  • Reenaface

    You called it.

  • Sweetness

    He reminds me of a young Will Smith. He has a playful and fun demeanor to him. If he stays likable in this manner and make relatable music, he WILL make a butt load of coins..chi chi ching ching! #ilikehim #goodforhim

  • Fire & Ice


  • Malificent

    He better save his money! Billy Ray Cyrus got more money than him.

  • the guest

    Keep the investment and money in the family.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe it's just a lease, and he didn't really spend $180k for that car. That would be the smart thing to do.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Some more GREAT NEWS!

    He can write-off the 180k, if he has a halfway decent accountant!

    God Bless Billy Ray Cyrus for jumping in, it completely transformed this dude’s life!

    I hope Nas X has put together a great team, stay away the black clubs, old hood, or any gang affiliation because he can make this payday take care of him for the rest of his life!

  • Marlika

    Good for the youngster! Now I don’t know bout giving Ol’ Billie such an expensive car? maybe a gift card or stock from his favorite company.??????

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs


  • MrsSpice1

    good for him!! Black ppl been making country music..its just over time white ppl pickd up where blacks left off..and moved more so to folk and the was more popular with blacks in the south back in the early to mid 1900s. Especially with artist like Chucky berry...Rufus Payne Ray charles solomon of recent you have Gary Clark Jr. and now this young blood bringing it to hiphop! Thats dope!

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    Cheers for him..they crossover all the time into our lane...So turn about is fair plan. Just hope he is not a one hit wonder becasue looks like he is not pinching his pennies for a rainy day.

  • Yoni7


  • Yoni7

    True, but then that's where they start to lose their integrity and then WE turn on'em and throw them further to the wolves. All money ain't good money. They will puppet his ass to the world and sh!t him back out with no tissue to wipe or toilet to flush. I heard a saying last night (John Wick) "Never seen a man struggle so hard to get back to where he started from." #message

  • Yoni7

    Congratulations, young man! I pray that you endure much success. Granted this gift you gave coulda been a PR stunt. I say, keep your coins. I read somewhere last night (most likely IG) that you got your first APARTMENT????? But you gifted the man with a 180k car? What are YOU driving? I pray that you weigh your options and invest your earnings wisely. Never let someone become your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. Please make yourself the priority.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I hope he does and I hope the trolling of him being NasMaraj and a secret DL man stop...

  • Coy little wink

    DJ played this song at Cardi B concert I went to and the crowd got so turnt up ? it was cute to watch

  • onelove

    that lil nas is going places..i love the song!! wish it was a lil longer

  • Guest

    Good for him. Save your coins.

  • Russiancreme

    You only had $5 to your name 2 months ago, now you buying 180K gifts for others?? You better slow down...

  • Rere

    I would have sent him a thank you note on a fruit basket?? gotta save my money

  • Dowoop

    1. He'll be back to his last $5 soon enough if he keeps this up.
    2. No one seriously expects us to believe he dates women.

  • Dowoop

    If he had a decent accountant they would have advised him against purchasing such an extragavant gift.

  • Kanyade
  • jwoo250

    So you gift a 130,000 car? Your still new money invest it. Boy oh boy. This is why I'm teaching my children about finances now and their 9 and 10 yrs old. Breaking these generational curses and leading by example.

  • Tammie Reed

    I don't know this young man from atom but congrats to him. Evidently if he can afford to gift Billy Ray Cyrus that kinda of car, he has it but just hope that he has good people around him to guide him and do right by him.

    I laugh sometimes when I see people comment that why didn't you donate to this or that instead of buying jewelry and cars etc. We need to mind our business because we have NO clue what he is doing with his money.

    WE the public, on the outside looking in at a smidget of his life, don't know his real finances, investments, contributions etc. Googling to see someones net worth, is not always accurate either. All we can do is hope for the best.

    But, I do tell my own kids to always tithe, give back and save, its up to them to listen because young folks today, can't tell em nothing! Ok, I'm off to play with my grand baby lol.

  • Nita Pie

    He need a new song now I looked him up thinking he had a catalog of music and he got 4 songs. He need to get in the studio before he blow the lil money he got on the old town road

    Like they do Most of the artists. Everytime I drive pass Elvis's house in Memphis, I think how They used Elvis and set Their Families up for Generations. They Ruin Elvis in the process and I am Not an Elvis's fan.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    That's why the song is fire, Because it is not niggahood. I glad someone in Our race showed another Respectful side of Blacks to other races!!! Mad props to Little Nas X for that, Mad Props!!!


    lol Nublacks


    Who cares about country, They are going to make sure they are going to be alright...... but Whats going on with R&B?

  • Nita Pie

    This why he had to go get Billy Ray Cyrus to cross over


    Yes always begging to be accepted and when they get their stuff stolen and begin to be locked out look all kinds of crazy. Billy Ray name is on hit in 2019... Seems like it worked out great for him. lol

  • Listen2Me

    An administrator and 2 teachers performed it at the school talent show; you would have thought the actual singers were performing.
    Kids were on ?!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know, but he’s a 20 yo, and has his first bundle of cash! Hopefully, he won’t bling out, and suppress urges to floss or hand over his money to a money manager, but save it!

  • Desi

    Clever though.

  • WhoKnew

    Wait, am I counting correctly? He's worth 6 figures. That would be anywhere between $100,000 and $999,000 and you gifted someone with a $180,000 car? Yeah, bro is in line right now applying at Walmart for a backup gig cuz he finna be back down to his last $5.

  • Renee26

    If country music is his thing those yt folks will be his main fan base. Personally ion do country, probably less than 5 country songs that I like... This isn't one of em tho ?

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    I like the song and I don't think it's a gimmick as referred to in the article. I'm happy for him and his success and I hope it continues. I was also happy to see Billy Ray Cyrus again.

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    I think it was a stunt to. The car was used in the video so I'm sure he got a good deal on it.
