While virtually stopping by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” the host got to know Lil Nas X better and questioned him about his birth name, Montero, and the background behind it.
“It’s slightly embarrassing but I’m not embarrassed,” Nas explained. “My mom wanted the car, Montero, and she never got one. So yeah, I’m named after a car.”

The “Old Town Road” rapper also looked back at winning at the Grammy awards nearly one year ago, but his favourite memory of the night had nothing to do with the ceremony. In fact, is was going to the strip club with Lizzo afterwards.
“That was a pretty great time,” he recalled. “They were like, playing our songs and stripping.”
“It was a crazy night,” he added.
