Lil Nas X is taking himself to court — literally — in the brand new teaser for his hotly-anticipated new single.
On Monday (July 19), the 22-year-old rapper shared a video titled "Nike v. Lil Nas X — Satan Shoes Trial," in which the rapper performed a full 2-minute sketch acting out his own fictional legal battle against the iconic shoe brand for his viral "Satan shoes" released back in March. (The actual court case between Nike and MSCHF settled in April.)
Acting in the sketch as himself, his lawyer, opposing counsel, the judge and more, Lil Nas X lampooned the fictitious court trial, which quickly devolves from being about his shoes to focusing on his sexuality. "Let me rephrase the question: Do your momma know you gay?" his lawyer character asks him while on the stand in the video. When he answers "yes," a juror (also played by Lil Nas X) makes his feelings on the matter clear: "Lock him up, throw away the key."
