Rapper Boosie Badazz was banned (again) on Instagram for posting a photo of a nude woman. In response, he created a new IG page and attacked country trap rapper Lil Nas X on Instagram Live.

He also defended fellow rapper DaBaby who was canceled after his anti-ghey, anti-HIV rant at Rolling Loud in Miami on Sunday.

Twitter users created memes of DaBaby and Boosie.

In one meme, DaBaby (left) and Boosie (right) join LNX in an imagined scene from his "Industry Baby" music video.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was banned on IG this week after posting a photo of a naked woman sitting on a piano.

The 38-year-old Louisiana native shaded Lil Nas X and made vulgar references about his homosexual lifestyle.

He directed his anger toward the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, who appeared on The Breakfast Club radio show.

Boosie blamed racism and asked Mosseri why other influencers who post nudity on the platform are not banned.

On his Instagram live, he attacked Lil Nas X and claimed that the photo sharing platform protects LNX who dances naked with men but doesn't get banned.

He also defended fellow rapper DaBaby who angered LGBT+ groups with his anti-ghey rant at Rolling Loud.

"If I was DaBaby, I'll tell them f**k y'all," said Boosie.

"Lil Nas, they want to perform naked for charity... That's the most disrespectful [expletive] in the world.... They got kids who watch that sh*t," he said, before urging LNX to give head on IG.

Boosie called LNX a "fa**ot" and said he would "beat up" the 22-year-old rapper.

The video went viral on Twitter, where LGBT+ users who were busy canceling rapper DaBaby have now focused their energy on canceling Boosie.

Rapper T.I. defended DaBaby's homophobic speech at the Rolling Out music festival in Miami, Florida on Sunday, July 25.

During his Sunday night set, DaBaby invited fans to put their "cellphone lighters up" if they don't have HIV or AIDS "or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that'll make you die in two to three weeks".

He also told males to hold their cellphones up if they didn't give fellatio to men in the parking lot.

Twitter users were quick to protest the rapper's comments, and LGBT+ advocacy groups called him out for stigmatizing people with HIV.

DaBaby attempted to apologize for his comments on Monday, but he failed miserably.

The rapper claimed his words weren't directed at his gay fans because they're not "nasty ghey n**gas" or "junkies" and they take care of themselves. He said his ghey fans don't have HIV or AIDS.
 

In an Instagram Live on Monday, T.I. insisted what DaBaby said was no more disturbing than videos by openly gay rapper Lil Nas X.

T.I. said he had "a lot of respect" for openly ghey artists, but he also felt Lil Nas X's new "Industry Baby" video went too far.

"That s**t ain't for me," he said. "I can't look at it."

"If you gonna have the Lil Nas X video and him living his truth, you gonna damn sure have people like DaBaby who gonna speak their truth."

T.I., a father of seven, defended his pro-heterosexual stance.

"I respect gheys... If homosexuals have more rights than heterosexual people, just say that... Just let that be the law," he said.

He added he doesn't want his children watching Lil Nas X's video and he feels the same way about the raunchy "WAP" video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion -- although he enjoyed watching the "WAP" video.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old rapper and his wife, Tiny, 46, continue to deny allegations of sexual assault brought against them by multiple women, who have accused the couple of drugging and assaulting them.

Nas X is the first rapper to feature an all-Black ghey male cast twerking in his music video. Such a spectacle would not have been possible 20 years ago.

Some parents objected to Nas X being promoted to their children. Nas X has a large following of children and adolescents who buy his books and music.

Here's how Black Twitter responded to the music video:

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!"

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.

Kanye West will host a listening party for his long-awaited new album, Donda, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The rapper and mega producer will play tracks from the album, named after his late mother, for paying fans on Thursday, July 22.

The cover art from the album was unveiled on Monday, July 19, just before tickets for the album listening party went on sale.

Kanye, 44, has hosted elaborate album parties for The Life of Pablo album at Madison Square Garden in 2016 and he flew journalists and celebrities to his ranch in Wyoming for his Ye listening bash in 2018.

A few tracks from the Donda album leaked online over the weekend.

Donda marks West's first album since the release of gospel hit Jesus Is Born in 2019.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Kanye produced Lil Nas X's new single, "Industry Baby," which drops on Friday, July 23.

Kanye is in the midst of a divorce from reality TV star Kim Kardashian, 40. The ex power couple share four children - daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and 2-year-old Psalm.

The 44-year-old rapper reportedly reunited with Kim and their children to visit the Asian Art Museum on Saturday.

An insider said the former couple had bodyguards with them but no nannies or other help.

Speaking to E! News, the source said:

"They were excited to be there, and everyone seemed to be getting along great between Kim and Kanye. They were there for the kids as the museum is a very family friendly environment, and this specific exhibit brings out the childlike wonder in us all. By all accounts they were gracious, appreciative, and had a great time!"

Kanye is reportedly disappointed that his relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk, 35, isn't generating buzz like he'd hoped.

Music icon Patti LaBelle showed support for Lil Nas X after he was harshly criticized for kissing one of his male dancers during the 2021 BET Awards.

The openly ghey rapper sparked controversy for the provocative kiss following his performance of "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" last month.

Critics, including Benzino, called out the one-hit rapper for his same-sex kiss.

However, Patti LaBelle insists Nas X should ignore his critics and continue to live his best life as an out-and-proud star.

Appearing on SiriusXM satellite radio show Urban View, she said:

"I am really understanding now that people understand people have to live their lives the way they need to live. Sometimes it's not bad to be yourself. It's always good to be yourself and let the chips fall, but don't be afraid and stay in the closet for the rest of your life.

"Lil Nas X came out, he kissed the man on the BET Awards, and it was what he wanted to do. Does that make him a bad person? No, he did himself. I say keep on doing you..."

The "Lady Marmalade" pop legend went on to accuse critics of ignoring Lil Nas X's musical talent, and she expressed her support for the "Old Town Road" country-trap rapper.

"Don't blow out someone's candle so yours can light brighter," she chastised his haters.

"Don't dim anybody, just give the stage and the audience what you have. There's room for everybody, too. Some people are intimidated by certain people and there is no need to be. Just do you, and don't step on anybody's toes, just do you and God will bless you."

Only three formal complaints were filed with officials at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to TMZ.

Benzino had something to say about country/trap rapper Lil Nas X kissing one of his male dancers on the 2021 BET Awards last weekend.

The former reality TV personality was infuriated at BET executives for pulling a "lame" stunt.

Benzino took to Instagram Live to blast the BET Awards:

"That s### BET pulled yesterday was lame [as f###]. It was too uncomfortable, too irresponsible, too forced, and too irrelevant to the awards. Homie ain't even hot like that for music anymore anyway. It's a shame what all this is coming to. I wish I had the backing to bring the Source Awards back."

The brawny, 55-year-old Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta star is co-founder of the now defunct Source magazine and the Source Awards.

Benzino continued:

"I just feel like sometimes things can be forced, and they don't have to be. I think Lil Nas X was trying to show he’s gay and gay’s here, but we already knew that. You don’t have to push the envelope so much. Gay people are here. The movement’s here."

There was some pushback from the LGBT+ community. Benzino defended his statement, saying he bought LNX's one hit "Old Town Road" for his son, Zino.

"All this satanic sh*t I'm just not with. I mean, how do you explain sh*t like this to your kid? I got noting but respect and Love for the ghey community, but that ain't it. I could see if he was popping but it was unexpected and unnecessary. I didn't care for the Madonna [and Britney Spears] kiss either. I could see if they were dating..."

Lil Nas X responded to Benzino's criticism, saying, "I'm sorry but the thought of ni**as sitting their kids down in the living room and telling them gay people exist is so hilarious to me."

Black Twitter imploded after Lil Nas X passionately tongue kissed a man onstage at the BET Awards.

Lil Nas X stunned BET Awards viewers on Sunday night by making out with one of his male dancers after performing "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)".

The openly homosexual rapper closed out his set at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles by playing tonsil hockey with his dancer as the audience cheered.

Not everyone was supportive of Nas X's celebration of Pride Month. Many on social media say Nas X was inappropriate in front of minors viewing at home.

One Twitter user wrote: "Black ppl wouldn't have supported Old Town Road if we knew it was gonna turn into this."

Another user wrote: "It's good that these folks are standing up to this foolishness."

Another user tweeted: "I agree Hundred points symbol percent. You don't have to throw away all your moral compass for 'love is love' ... protecting children is a must r regardless of your lifestyle. I'm glad they are speaking out. It just shows how they expect everyone to go along with the garbage public behavior."

Even members of the LGBT+ community ripped Nas X for the kiss on national television.

The 22-year-old Georgia native clapped back at his critics, saying, "Y'all really like to pretend homosexuality didn't exist in African culture."

Nas X is best known for a remix to his country-trap single, "Old Town Road," featuring country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus, 59.
 

Lil Nas X's father rushed to his defense after a viral video showed his drug addict mom strung out on a street corner in Atlanta.

LNX has a close relationship with his dad, Robert Stafford, but he and his mother remain distant.

Earlier this week, a video surfaced showing his mother begging for money and food on a street corner.

Gossipmongers called out LNX for supporting his father and sister while disregarding his strung out mother.

According to bloggers, LNX's mother kicked him out of her home when he was 9. He went to live with his father, who tried to provide a stable home for the apparently promiscuous youngster.

On Thursday, Stafford took to social media to set the story straight.

The aspiring gospel singer shared a photo of himself posing with LNX and his mother. Stafford called the one-hit rapper the "greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with."

"Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a struggle with an addiction she's STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we're taking care of [sic]. Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain't enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right. I dont usually address personal issues publicly but felt like this need to be. Please join us in keeping her in your PRAYERS. And to those out there trying to create a false story you wont prosper. #controlthenarrative."

Lil Nas X spoke out about rumors that DMX's death was a blood sacrifice because he died on LNX's birthday.

DMX died on April 9, and coincidentally, LNX was born on April 9, 1999. That was too many 9s for some people who follow numerology.

One conspiracy theorist tweeted: "DMX was a sacrifice as he died on Lil Nas X bday. No such thing as chance."

Lil Nas X retweeted the post and wrote, "it genuinely scares me knowing how crazy you n****s are."

LNX was already upset about tweets calling for his death before DMX passed away on his birthday.

After DMX died, Sada Baby wished death on LNX by tweeting, "Lord we said Nas X, not DMX."

After some backlash, Sada Baby clarified that he wasn't really wishing death on Lil Nas X, he was annoyed over the controversy surrounding LNX's recent Lucifer-themed music video and "Satan Shoes."
