Lil Nas X is having an incredible year, that much is indisputable. While he may have his critics, he just keeps racking up wins nonetheless. And do you know what else he has? His own special day after his hometown of Atlanta dedicated a day in his honor.  

Atlanta City Council has officially declared October 20 as “Lil Nas X Day.” A special dinner and ceremony were held last night at The Gathering Spot to commemorate the event. The “Industry Baby” rapper was surprised with a proclamation, presented by councilman and mayoral candidate Antonio Brown. The city councilman is Atlanta’s first Black LQBTQ council member and if elected, will be the first LGBTQ mayor. In his speech, Brown thanked Lil Nas and told him: “You inspire me and allow be to believe I can do it.”
