Lil Nas X revealed that he feared he would die as he battled depression and hypochondria. The 21-year-old rapper opened up on his mental health struggles in one of his latest TikTok posts, saying that he had “no friends” during college and struggled to make his life go on after his grandmother passed away.
“Hey I am Lil Nas X, and this is my story. In 2017, I became the first of all my family to get into college. During college I was depressed, had no friends… and my grandmother passed. I started going to the doctor a lot in fear that I would die soon… hypochondria. In May 2018 I started making music. I was happy again! I dropped out and moved with my sister! In June 2018 I released my first mixtape ‘Nasarati’. Things were going great, then they were not! My brother who was helping me left to the military and my songs were no longer doing good. In November 2018, feeling hopeless, I moved with my other brother where it was domestic violence everyday. Then something happened … (hinted at the success that was to come with ‘Old Town Road’, which topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for a record of 19 weeks at No. 1)”
