Atlanta Officially Declares October 20th  ‘Lil Nas X Day’

There’s a new unofficial holiday in the city of Atlanta, dedicated to rapper Lil Nas X. Atlanta Councilor, Antonio Brown officially announced yesterday that October 20th has now been named “Lil Nas X Day” in Atlanta.

And there was a huge party dedicated to the openly gay hip hop star.

Lil Nas also gave a brief acceptance speech during the event, reminding the crowd about his roots in Atlanta.

“Thank you all for being here. This is incredible …” he said on stage.

“I’m not gonna cry. Shout out to Atlanta. I know a lot of you probably didn’t know I’m from Atlanta … I’m from the A. But seriously, this is amazing. I would not imagine I would be here four years ago, when I was at my sister’s house, sleeping on the floor … This is incredible.”
