Lil Nas X Goes on Trial for "Satan Shoes" in Teaser for New Single

The rapper plays the judge, jury and prosecution in a cheeky clip teasing “Industry Baby.”

Lil Nas X pokes fun at the legal uproar caused by his blood-filled “Satan Shoes” in a teaser video for upcoming single “Industry Baby.”

In addition to playing himself (the defendant), the rapper also takes on the role of judge, jury, prosecution and defense, a one-man cast of characters that doesn’t hesitate to bring up Nas’s sexuality. “This is about much more than shoes. Lil Nas X — are you gay?” the prosecuting lawyer asks, only to rephrase his question as: “Do your mama know you’re gay?” After responding affirmatively, the artist is sentenced to five years in “Montero State Prison.”

The clip then transitions to the opening of “Industry Baby,” a booming, bass-heavy track featuring Jack Harlow (it’s also produced by Take A Daytrip and Kanye West). Last week, Lil Nas X began building anticipation for the single and its tongue-in-cheek teaser with tweets alluding to his “trial.” “All jokes aside I can’t believe I might be going to jail. Who’s going to make mildly funny tweets about being gay while I’m away,” the rapper posted yesterday.

“Industry Baby” drops on July 23. Check out the teaser above.
