Taking place during Miami’s Rolling Loud festival.
Beloved music interviewer Nardwuar has cultivated a loyal following through his eccentric, sometimes iconic interviews. Perhaps the best prepared journalist out there, Nardwuar concurrently amazes and frazzles the subjects through his extremely specific line of questioning — it’s his calling-card, if you will. The most recent artist to receive the Nardwuar treatment is none other than viral sensation, Lil Nas X.
Interviewing the “Old Town Road” hyphenate during Miami’s Rolling Loud festival, where Lil Nas X performed his record-breaking single, Nardwuar asked the 20-year-old phenom a series of questions surrounding his come-up and artistic hopes. From discussing his father’s velvety Gospel voice to gifting him with a country-inspired belt buckle, the two made for an entertaining, succinct interview.
While some are phased by Nardwuar’s enigmatic demeanor and approach, Lil Nas X seemed right at home answering the legend’s interrogation.
