After his country-rap crossover 'Old Town Road' was controversially dropped from Billboard's Hot Country chart in April, the rapper roped in country star Billy Ray Cyrus to make a remix, which went viral on the internet and made history by becoming the longest-running number 1 single to ever top the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, reported People.

The rapper also dropped his first EP 7, in June and performed at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.

'Old Town Road' won song of the year at the awards ceremony, and the rapper was also nominated in eight other categories.

Earlier this week, Nas X who came out as gay at the end of Pride Month in June, confessed in an episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' that he is sort of in a relationship, reported the outlet.

Asked whether he was seeing anybody, the singer replied, "Somewhat, somewhat".
