(AllHipHop News) Lil Nas X became world famous almost overnight, thanks to the success of his breakout single “Old Town Road.”
The song cemented Lil Nas X in the annals of hip-hop history, after the track set the record as the longest-running #1 single ever, smashing records set by Drake, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men.
His follow-up song “Panini” is doing well, resting at #5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart.
But it looks like the rigors of the music business are taking a toll on Lil Nas X, who revealed he is taking a break from the music business.

The rapper has backed out of a high-profile appearance at Twitchcon slated for this weekend in San Diego, while his headlining show at The Sandbox Music Festival in Arizona has been axed too.
The news of Lil Nas X’s break comes just days after 90’s rocker Fiona Apple accused the rapper of jerking her out of royalties by stealing a sample from her song “Every Single Night” and used it without permission for his song “Kim Jong.”
