Alongside his educational pursuits, Lil Nas X plans to release a gospel single called “J CHRIST” on Friday. The song pays homage to Jesus and promotes themes of redemption. Some had assumed his prior religious references in announcements were just schemes, but the rapper maintains he is genuinely exploring spirituality through his art.

We will see how Lil Nas X’s credibility and relationships with both critics and supporters may evolve as he walks this less controversial path. By joining the student body at Liberty University, he aims to enrich his perspective on scripture beyond what narrow minds have dictated.
