Grammy-winning rapper Lil Nas X is officially a children’s book author.
The history-making “Old Town Road” rhymer takes fans ages 3-7 through an alphabetical journey in C Is for Country, which was officially released on Tuesday (Jan. 5). The utterly adorable illustrations by Theodore Taylor III show off Lil Nas X’s fashion taste (“F is for fringe. And feathers. And fake fur.”) and his pony Panini, named after his Grammy-nominated and Billboard Hot 100 No. 5 hit.
“MY CHILDREN’S BOOK ‘C IS FOR COUNTRY’ IS OUT NOW!!!! GO GET IT PLEASE I REALLY NEED TO PAY MY RENT!” the 21-year-old multi-hyphenate joked on Twitter.
The ABC picture book is published by Random House Kids, a division of Penguin Random House. Random House Kids’ page for C Is for Country boasts “plenty of hidden surprises” for the artist’s biggest fans within its pages filled with “wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country.”
