Lil Nas X has announced the release date for his debut album, Montero. The album will come out on September 17.

The out rapper made the announcement on Twitter, of course – and teases his next song.

“Creating this album has been therapy for me,” Lil Nas X tweeted. “I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who I am, what I can do, and where I will be.”

“I’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”

While Lil Nas X has hit number one on the charts multiple times while being unapologetically gay in a homophobic industry, he was forced to hire a security detail after the release of the video for his single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” Montero is the artist’s real name.

While the rapper famously came out as his song “Old Town Road” was number one on the charts and he’s often included gay themes in his songs and music videos, his critics have frequently used it to attack him.

The tweet includes a video that continues the artist’s Eddie Murphy-esque acting, portraying a journalist and referring to himself as a “power bottom rapper” and “talentless homosexual” while reporting that Lil Nas and rapper Jack Harlow have escaped the prison they were in for Nas’s last song and video, “Industry Baby.”

The video ties together most of his previous song videos from this album, including an “apology” from Satan for the shoes controversy.

Nas has frequently been criticized and insulted by other performers. Rapper Boosie Badazz is in hot water currently for his incredibly offensive and violent comments about Lil Nas while he continues to claim he’s an ally to LGBTQ people. Badazz posted a video yesterday on Instagram to show off his tour manager, who is gay, to proclaim it as proof he isn’t homophobic despite everything he’s said in the past.
