The students at Lander Elementary School in Cleveland got the surprise of their young lives on Wednesday when Lil Nas X showed up for a performance of “Old Town Road.”
After a video of kids from the school dancing to the song made its way to Lil Nas X, the 20-year-old rapper decided to stop by for an impromptu rendition of the country-rap hit. Naturally, the adorable crowd went wild!
Complex captured Lil Nas X prepping for the show. Dressed in a fringed denim fringe jacket and cowboy hat, he told the camera, “I’m finna do the best show of my life right now and it’s gonna be great.” As he walks into the auditorium, you hear the increasing screams and shrieks from the children. Some of them even chant “Old Town Road” as if they’re at a major concert!
Lil Nas X's song got a country boost from Billy Ray Cyrus after it was removed from the country charts. Clearly, little ones are a fan of the catchy track — North West even created her own music video for it, as mom Kim Kardashian West documented on Instagram.
If you thought Lil Nas X’s adventures in heartwarming moments couldn’t get more charming, the rapper also shared yesterday that he adopted two ridiculously cute puppies!
Lil Nas X is clearly having an uplifting week amid a momentous year. What’s next… him cuddling with a basket of baby pandas?
