Hip hop’s favourite cowboy Lil Nas X is branching out outside of rap, and his latest project is definitely one we weren’t expecting. His latest release (out today) comes in the form of a children’s book C Is For Country, and no cap, but its cute as fuck.
Tweeting some pics from the book, Nas hilariously wrote in all caps “MY CHILDREN’S BOOK ‘C IS FOR COUNTRY’ IS OUT NOW!!!! GO GET IT PLEASE I REALLY NEED TO PAY MY RENT!” Man, ain’t that a vibe.
The tweet sees screenshots showing Nas’ illustrated character in various outfits (with one pic showing him riding a badass horse), while text reads “F is for fringe. And feathers. And fake fur” along with phrases like “P is for Panini. Night night, little pony” and “S is for swag. Just ’cause I’m going to bed doesn’t mean I can’t look good!”

The publisher’s statement describing the book reads “Join superstar Lil Nas X — who boasts the longest-running #1 song in history — and Panini the pony on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown.
“Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style. Featuring bold, bright art from Theodore Taylor III, with plenty of hidden surprises for Nas’s biggest fans, C Is for Country is a celebration of song and the power inside us all.”
