As for why he didn’t use Montero for his stage name, he said, “Nas was my internet alias, and then when I started doing music, I was like, ‘I want to have fun with this.’ And every new rapper’s name is Lil, Lil, Lil. ‘What if I was Lil Nas?’ That’d be funny.’ So I was like, ‘Alright, bet. I’ll be Lil Nas.’ And I added the X later on.”

Well, I’m sure that the car isn’t the only Montero people want to ride.
