Industry Baby is a song by 22-year-old American music sensation Lil Nas X and rapper Jack Harlow. The visuals for the song has divided opinions especially with its nude prison shower scenes. While it’s caused a lot of debate about what is and is not appropriate for kids to see in entertainment today, Lil Nas X and Harlow have drawn extensive praise for their performances and the ideas that forged the video. However, not many people have spoken about Kanye West helping to produce the song.
Ye has been locked away in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta reportedly finishing DONDA after pump-faking the album’s release last week, but Lil Nas X pushed forward with “Industry Baby” in a big way.
Recently, Nas X chatted with media personality Kerwin Frost and was asked about how he was able to connect with Ye on the record. Unfortunately, the rapper couldn’t give an answer because it doesn’t seem that he’s allowed to speak about it. At least, “not yet,” he said.
After adding that he wanted to protect people involved and the connections he has made, Lil Nas X lavished compliments onto Kanye West about the evolution of the Chicago icon’s career. “We talked, he’s a pretty cool guy, super down to earth, super talented,” he said, adding that he got a peek into what Ye has been creating in the studio.
“It’s nice to work with somebody who’s done that for so long,” said Nas X. “So much longevity and still going.” He also stated that Kanye is greater than just an evolving artist because he is consistent in changing himself and his musical, public persona with each project or creative endeavour.
