It looks like Lil Nas X has been hard at work creating new music. On Wednesday, the rapper shared a video of him “working” in the studio.
The 13-second clip shows Lil Nas X hilariously performing his own version of emo music alongside his friend with an acoustic guitar.
Lil Nas X has also shown his rock music side in the past. Last year, the rapper teamed up with blink-182‘s Travis Barker for the song “F9mily (You & Me).” He has also previously sampled Nirvana in this work. A sample of “In Bloom” appears on his song “Panini.”
Now, it looks like Lil Nas X is channeling another music genre. On Wednesday, he shared a hilarious video of him messing around in the studio with a friend. In the 13-second clip, he appears to be giving his own interpretation of emo music.
Alongside the acoustic guitar, the rapper screams the lyrics, “heart been broke so many times I don’t know what to believe. It’s my fault, I wear my heart on my sleeve.”
“Trying something new what y’all think?,” he tweets.

Maybe it’s time for Lil Nas X to start an emo band? It wouldn’t be the first time a rap artist crossed over into emo music.
Of course, many fans are sharing their opinions on the video clip. Since the video’s release, it has been liked over 100,000 times and commented on by numerous people.
