Billy Ray Cyrus Stands Up for Lil Nas X


Billy Ray Cyrus calls out the double standard in Country Music after he's praised in Nashville for having the No.1 song on the Country charts with Old Town Road...

After a banner on Music Row in Nashville congratulating Billy Ray Cyrus went viral, Billy Ray shared a picture of himself standing next to the banner holding up his own sign giving all the credit to Lil Nas X and music producer Kio.

Two words: White privilege.

Good on Billy Ray for doing this. Country music listeners wouldn't have a problem had this been a white person pushing this song. Granted, the only reason Billy Ray is doing this is because his own people treated him like he didn't belong. So, now he's bringing Lil Nas in the fold. Sweet revenge.

Good for him, the original cowboys of the west were nubians anyway, till whitewashed by history and hollyweird. That song is fire and those insecure hating ass hoes will deal.

@10:44 This isn't white privilege this is giving this BLACK boy his props. He basically said this aint mine, its his.

When Fefe Dobson releases her new comeback rock album (hopefully this year) I hope she gets the same amount of support this little dude is getting. The music industry is already becoming a 100% Anti-Black woman space. The American music industry hates black women, Asian men and women, and Indigenous people but will keep giving passes to white people, mixed race people, and black males.

Fefe is biracial too but she looks more black, so they probably won't root for her.

2:09 Very true but BW are best off out of that shower of shit anyway and creating their own independent music industry owned and run by them on their own terms for them.
No compromising on material to crossover into mainstream, just do it for other blks as the Turkish, Greeks, Chinese, Native Americans already do and keep everyone else out of it.

2:16 Agreed it's stomach churning.

You are telling the truth. We will never get ahead, if we are always seeking the stamp of approval from white folks.
