Where Is Lil Nas X From? His Parents, Hometown, and Coming Out

Lil Nas X is originally from Lithia Springs, Ga., just outside of Atlanta. According to an interview with BBC Breakfast, he was originally named Montero Lamar Hill, and he was born on April 9, 1999.

In his teenage years, he had struggled with coming out as gay and initially tried to deny his sexuality. He has since learned to embrace it and hopes that his celeb status as a successful gay Black artist will open more doors for others to feel comfortable with their own identities.

The rapper also has his own share of guardians in his life. When he was 6 years old, his parents divorced, and he grew up in the Bankhead Courts housing project along with his mother and his grandmother.

Three years later, he moved in with his father, who happened to be a gospel singer, which must have played a big part in informing his career in music. He also grew up with several siblings and half-siblings, including two brothers, Lamarco Hill and Tramon Hill, half-sisters, Shaquisha Hill and Bianca Hill, and Ashley Stafford, and half-brothers Robert Sleepy and Labrock Anderson.
