Lil Nas X went back to his roots and gave students at his old high school a surprise concert.
The 20-year-old rapper gave a visit to Lithia Springs High School in Georgia. He dropped in during an assembly and gave an impromptu performance in his hometown.
He busted out his new hit “Panini” and the crowd of students went wild.
Lil Nas X posted a video of him captioned, “performed at my old high school today lol”.
The rapper graduated from the school in 2017. He attended college for one year before dropping out.
Earlier this week, Lil Nas X surprised patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. He hung out and talked to the kids. The rapper also took photos and videos at the facility.
The surprise was a partnership with The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The foundation posted video writing “Hats off to @LilNasX ... and hats ON for this lucky patient! Another memorable day in Seacrest Studios at @childrensatl !
Ryan Seacrest posted photos saying, “Really glad the kids got to meet their hometown hero today! Thanks @LilNasX for making the trip to @ChildrensATL – it made their day (and my mom’s). #SeacrestStudios”
Lil Nas X is having quite the breakout year with his 2nd single “Panini” climbing the charts. He recently dropped the “Blade Runner” inspired music video.
“Panini" is Lil Nas X’s second single off his EP “7”, which was released earlier this year.
The first track released was “Old Town Road”, which turned into a whole pop culture moment. The song broke records when it stayed no. 1 on the Billboard Charts for 19 straight weeks. The rapper was able to knock down Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber’s previous record of 17 weeks.
Lil Nas X released a series of “Old Town Road” remixes with Young Thug and other artists. He has already promised Joe Jonas a spot on the “Panini” remix, after axing the remix they did for “Old Town Road”.
