Lil Nas X dropped the music video to his latest single titled "Industry Baby" ft. Jack Harlow late Thursday.
Directed by Christian Breslauer, the music video is heavy on LGBT+ imagery, such as inmates dancing naked in the shower. Their private parts are blurred to get the video past the FCC censors.
In the video, Nas X is sentenced to five years at Montero State prison for being an unrepentant homosexual. Lil Nas X portrays the judge, a lawyer, the district attorney, and one juror.
Harlow makes out with a female in his prison cell before breaking out of prison with Nas X.
Anticipating possible backlash to his LGBT+ agenda, Nas X tweeted:
"saying this in advance so y'all won't blame me. THE INDUSTRY BABY VIDEO IS NOT FOR YOUR KIDS!"
saying this in advance so y’all won’t blame me. THE INDUSTRY BABY VIDEO IS NOT FOR YOUR KIDS!

Thanks to Kanye West's production, the song will be in heavy rotation on the radio before fading into obscurity.
If you're not already a Lil Nas X fan, this video won't convert you.
