In the caption of the post, he wrote: “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more,” he wrote. “but before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.” 

In the song, the lyrics include: “True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free.”

He continues: “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”

Lil Nas X followed it up with another post on social media, saying: “Deadass thought I made it obvious,” as he included the rainbow emojis which have become synonyms with the LGBTQ community.
