Lil Nas X hit back at fellow rapper Dave East for "homophobic" comments he made about the "Old Town Road" rapper's decision to dress up as his idol Nicki Minaj for Halloween.

The country music crossover artist turned heads over the weekend as he showed off his transformation into a 2010 version of Nicki, wearing a skin-tight pink animal print bodysuit with fake boobs. He also rocked a half blonde and half pink wig and matching lipstick.

Lil Nas X, who used to run a Nicki Minaj fan page on Twitter, completed his bold costume with fake nails, chunky pink and yellow bangles, and a pair of neon green stilettos. He posed for photos while straddling a motorcycle ice sculpture, similar to the one featured in Nicki's video for her "Super Bass" hit.

While many Instagram followers applauded the effeminate 21 year old for his eye-popping costume, Dave East made it clear he still wasn't a fan, after previously dismissing Lil Nas X's only hit as "super wack".

"And y'all was mad at me about this n***a", said Dave, referencing the backlash he received last year for criticizing the openly ghey rapper's viral success.

"BATI MON BUN UP!!!!" East wrote in another now-deleted post, using Jamaican patois to utter a gay slur, typically spelled, "batty man". It originated in the Caribbean country, where homosexuality is still considered illegal.

Dave also added, "I gotta move to Jamaica," and tagged Jamaican artist Popcaan as he declared, "on my wayyyyy".

Lil Nas X, who emerged from the closet to much fanfare in June, 2019, pointed out that Dave misspelled his insult.

"It's 'batty man'," Nas X tweeted. "n**gas can't even be homophobic the proper way smh [shaking my head] butchering the hell out of the patois".

"Bro I don't bother a soul in this industry," he continued. "All I do is tweet and make bangers. Leave me alone D**n."

When a fan tweeted: "The Bible says that a man is not supposed to wear anything that pertains to a woman," Nas X responded, "with all due respect that's not my problem that’s yours."

Rapper Dave East is facing battery charges after a groupie accused him of attacking her during a wild threesome in his Las Vegas hotel room.

The 31-year-old Gemini was cited for battery on a woman after he invited 2 groupies back to his hotel room for a private after party.

The steamy sex session started out normally, but things went left quickly when the woman got upset that the "Hate Me Now" rapper showed the other groupie more love.

The groupie "flipped out" and threw champagne bottles and a soap dish from across the room. 2 of the bottles hit their target, leaving cuts on East's arm and leg, which police noted in their report.

The woman claimed she and East got into an argument and he threw 5 or 6 punches at her, hitting her once on the arm.

She said she fled to the bathroom, where she called 911.

But Dave's attorney, Stacey Richman, released a statement to Sandrarose.com, alleging that the groupie stole Dave's cell phones when she fled the room:

"The woman threw a soap dispenser and bottles of champagne at Dave. One of the bottles shattered on the wall, sending glass flying and cutting Dave. Another bottle hit Dave with force in the head. The woman sought to continue her assault. Dave did not respond with violence. Instead Dave was concerned for everyone's safety. Dave justifiably took the woman by the arm and put her out of the room. Dave did not assault anyone. He was ordered by his doctor to get CAT scan after the incident. We are waiting on the results. It was later learned that the woman had secreted Dave's phones in her handbag. – Stacey Richman

Rapper Dave East is facing battery charges after he allegedly attacked a woman during a threesome in his Las Vegas hotel room.

The 31-year-old Gemini was cited for battery on a woman after he invited 2 groupies back to his hotel room for a private after party.

According to TMZ, one of the women was upset that the "Hate Me Now" rapper showed the other groupie more attention during the intimate encounter.

The groupie "flipped out" and threw champagne bottles from across the room. 2 of the bottles hit their target, leaving cuts on East's arm and leg, which police noted in their report.

The woman's version of the story was different. She told cops that during the steamy sexual encounter, she and East got into an argument and he threw 5 or 6 punches at her, hitting her once on the arm.

She said she fled to the bathroom, where she called 911.

Other witnesses, including a man and woman, said they entered the bedroom after the ruckus began.

A female witness stated the woman was the aggressor in the altercation, while East's buddy only recalled seeing the woman hurling bottles.

Both parties were cited for misdemeanor battery, but nobody was arrested. Dave and the woman were treated at separate hospitals, according to TMZ.

Question: Ladies, would you go back to a hotel room with a rapper? Which rapper?
 

Update: Dave East's camp reached out to Sandrarose.com with more information about the altercation between East and a woman:

"In your piece, can you please update to include the statement from Dave's attorney, Stacey Richman, who says the woman threw a soap dispenser at Dave -- but says the rapper didn't respond with violence, and instead was concerned for everyone's safety. Richman claims Dave justifiably took her by the arm and put her out of the room.

Richman denies Dave assaulted anyone and says he got a CAT scan after the alleged incident ... doctor's orders. They are waiting on the results."
