Lil Nas X Posts Fiery ‘Right There’ Track on SoundCloud in Latest ‘Nasarati 2’ Preview

Lil Nas X has been teasing his upcoming Nasarati 2 mixtape for several months via snippets and previews of songs from his follow-up to his original 2018 Nasarati tape. On Wednesday (April 10) he posted a full new song on SoundCloud, “Right There,” a heater produced by Ojivolta on which Montero drops rapid-fire verses over angelic, gospel-like female backing vocals.

“Hol’ up, lil’ b–ch, what you need? What you need?/ I need a n–ga with loose-lick hips/ I need a model with some big, fake lips/ I just did X in the bathroom stall/ On a B-list star, gettin’ my A-list round/ I’m JK like I’m next to LM/ I’m so drunk that my shit went limp, ayy, ayy/ Pour me some Henny,” he raps on the track with a bare-bones beat that he first previewed in an Instagram Story in February — before deleting it — then again in a tweet.

Later in the song, he gets in his self-referential bag once more, rhyming, “Big Nas, come get that work/ Montero, these hoes gon’ flirt/ Lost and found, I can’t find my shirt/ Montero just popped that Perc/ This feel like God in church/ This scripture a Bible verse/ Buss it open and make it/ Buss it open and make it twerk.”

The full track was unleashed a day after the MCs 25th birthday and a month after X previewed another unreleased song with typically provocative lyrics. “My big sis just had another baby, popped him out the labia/ My other nephew sitting in class with a broken nephew, he had to beat a n—a ass for talking about his uncle,” he rapped on the unnamed track. “Now listen, I ain’t saying I condone that sh–/ F— it, I’m saying I condone that sh–,” Nas X raps.

X has been honest about his struggle to choose songs over his fear about fans’ perceptions of his music, previously writing on Instagram, “Been hoarding music for years smh i hate my relationship with fear of my songs not doing well and perception. i wish i could just release music and not give af.” At the same time he dumped a handful of snippets on fans to gauge their reaction and possibly guide his track-picking.
