Video director Calmatic, who directed the clip for the breakout hit, praised Lil Nas X as 'a product of not only the Internet, but just the culture that hip-hop has become' to Billboard Tuesday. 'Hip-hop is not just about making music but it's about using technology and making something out of nothing and I feel like that's exactly what Lil Nas did with this song.'
Calmatic delved into the balancing act the artist faces as he incorporates two separate genres.
'People in the hip-hop community think he’s a weird country singer, and people in the country world think he’s a hip-hop guy,' he said. 'I feel like he’s right in the middle, and ultimately he is hip-hop - but I think he needed the validation from both sides of the spectrum in order to be himself.'
