Lil Nas X has ignited a new wave of controversy with his latest single, “J Christ,” as fans draw parallels between its beat and Kendrick Lamar’s iconic anthem “HUMBLE.” Released on Friday (January 12), the Gesaffelstein and Omer Fedi co-produced track has raised eyebrows for its uncanny similarity to K. Dot’s 2017 hit, produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and Pluss.

Some fans took to social media to express their thoughts on the resemblance, with one person commenting, “New Lil Nas X kinda sounds like a gay version of Kendrick’s ‘Humble’ haha.” Another added a humorous touch, saying, “Meanwhile, this is Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Humble’ for bottoms.”

In the visually striking “J Christ” music video, Lil Nas X takes on various religious personas, including Jesus Christ on the cross, Moses, and Noah. The rapper is also seen playing basketball against Satan. Notably, celebrity impersonators, including figures like Kanye West, Barack Obama, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, and more, make appearances in the religious-themed visual.

Lil Nas X had already stirred the conversation on social media leading up to the release of “J Christ.” Streamer Kai Cenat criticized the artist for his promotional tactics, accusing him of disrespecting religion. Lil Nas X responded to the criticism, sparking further debate.

The controversy extends beyond online discussions, with boxer Ryan Garcia expressing his disappointment on social media. Garcia called for prayers for Lil Nas X, emphasizing the need to uplift him in prayer despite the outrage among Christians. The artist’s bold and provocative approach to religious imagery has stirred mixed reactions, with some finding it disrespectful and others defending his artistic expression.
