Lil Nas X paused his gig in Atlanta, Georgia this week in order to take what he described as a “mean shit” backstage.
The rapper was playing at the Coca-Cola Roxy on Tuesday (September 27) as part of his ‘Long Live Montero’ tour, when a call from nature paused the gig.
During one of three costume change interludes, Lil Nas X remained off stage for a few minutes, with his voice then coming through the venue speakers.
He told the crowd: “I’m backstage and this is not a part of the show, but I’m taking a mean shit.
“I’m gonna be, like, a minute or two, and I’ll be right back,” he added.
