'Old Town Road' Rapper Lil Nas X Buys His First Home at Age 21 — Take a Peek Inside

Congratulations are in order for "Old Town Road" rapper Lil Nas X, who recently became a homeowner at only 21 years. The excited musician took to Instagram to share the good news with a few snaps of the property.

American rapper, Lil Nas X, born Montero Lamar Hill, was understandably excited in his recent Instagram post, showing off the home he just bought for himself. The "Old Town Road" rapper revealed that it was his first house too.

Buying a house is no small accomplishment for a 21-year-old, and he made sure to show his fans a glimpse into the property without revealing its whereabouts.

FIRST-TIME HOMEOWNER

In the first photo, Hill grinned at the camera while holding up a pair of house keys. The rapper was dressed in a bright orange printed T-shirt and a unique gray and black hat as he posed for pics in different areas of the house.

In one photo, Hill threw a "peace" sign while holding a huge star-shaped congratulatory balloon as he stood in a stairway before heading to the kitchen and bathroom for more photos.

Hill also gave a peek at his outdoor area with lush green grass, a hot tub, and wood paneling in the backyard. While the rapper looked thrilled about his new home, his fans were delighted and expressed their pride in the comment section.

One fan commented, "Proud of you king," while another wrote, "The King has found his castle." A third person added, "Congratulations, king. It’s what you deserve."

FROM COLLEGE DROPOUT TO HITMAKER

Indeed, Hill deserves success and comfort after all the hard work he has put into creating one hit song after another. As a college dropout, his journey to fame and fortune was an incredible one.

After tirelessly promoting his song, "Old Town Road," on social media, Hill cracked the Billboard Top 100 until controversy regarding the song's genre threatened to set him back.

BREAKING RECORDS

Billboard disqualified the song from the country charts, which only opened more doors for Hill. He was soon linked with acclaimed country music crooner Billy Ray Cyrus and the pair recorded a remix to the catchy song.

The "Old Town Road" remix broke the Billboard record for most weeks in the number one spot after 17 weeks. The song cemented the young rapper's reputation in music, but a personal revelation made him an icon in an unexpected way.

REPRESENTING THE LGBT COMMUNITY

While making headlines for his music, Hill courageously came out as gay in June 2019, and his revelation was met with praise and acceptance. The "C7osure" rapper instantly became the poster boy for gay pride.

Hill acknowledges that society doesn't fully accept the LGBT community and often takes an active approach to homophobia. He recently clapped back at fellow rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, for posting a homophobic comment on Instagram.
