After winning two Grammys last month and releasing his highly anticipated “Rodeo (Remix)”, a duet with Nas, Lil Nas X is ready to close the 7 EP chapter and start anew.

However, there are only 28 days in February. Call it an early April Fools Day joke by the rapper, as he duped everyone who’s been eagerly awaiting new music. Last September, Nas X announced that he’d be taking a break from music after the success of his Hot 100 chart topper “Old Town Road.” His decision forced him to sit out both the Twitchon and Sandbox Music Festivals in 2019.
