Just when you thought Lil Nas X has run out of shocking ideas to keep folks talking…he poses “pregnant” with a baby bump to promote his forthcoming debut album, Montero.

The 22-year-old rapper is no stranger to controversy and at this point he appears to embrace and crave it.

Lil Nas X told People he came up with the idea of doing a maternity shoot before delivering his “baby” on September 17 from Megan Thee Stallion’s verse on his new song, “Dolla Sign Slime.”

I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ so I immediately called my stylist. She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.’

I was like, ‘You know what? That’s actually brilliant.’ So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it’s going to be amazing.

See photos from the shoot below.

Alrighty then!
