Lil Nas X was honoured with Innovator of the Year award at 'Hitmakers Brunch'
Lil Nas X proved at the Hitmakers Brunchthat he is always rooting for something out of ordinary with his Innovator of the Year award acceptance speech.
Variety held its star-studded eventin Los Angeles on Saturday where Chloe Bailey and other fellow musicians honoured the Industry Baby rapper.
With the trophy in one of his hands, the 22-year-old rapper took the mic on the other to deliver his speech, reflecting back on the massive year.
He said, "It's been like a pretty crazy year," he said. "It's been a pretty fun year. I had a lot of fun (expletive) people off."
However, soon after his goofy comment, the Old Town Road hit-maker expressed, “I'm kidding.. This year took a lot of mental strength for me just to even continue to keep pushing after my debut reached such a high place so, so quickly, and it's very scary to try to follow up and keep it going.”
"But I came out. I was myself. I did what I needed to do," he continued. "I put effort into every single part of my career. And I'm super thankful for this award," added the Grammy winner.
