Who are Lil Nas X parents?
Robert Stafford (father)
Date of birth: 1969
Lil Nas X’s father was against his idea to become a rapper. “There are too many aspiring rappers in the industry”, he used to tell. Nevertheless, now his son is the most popular of all!
Robert was born in Atlanta, GA. His son inherited his passion to music from him. Robert graduated from a high school in 1987, and was discovered as a musician around that time, too. Mr. Stafford performed a song at his friend’s funeral, and he touched the soul of each person, present at the sad ceremony. After that his friends began to invite him as a singer for various events – both, happy and sad. He performed in the church during many years, too.
Lil Nas X’s father is a faithful person. He tried to raise his son in love and peace.
Mia Stafford (step-mother)
Montero is closely-knitted with his stepmother Mia. He relocated to his father’s house at the age of 9, and since then she was like a second mom for him. She put lots of efforts to send the boy to college – Mia saved cash and filed lots of documents to get financial help. That’s why she got furious, when her stepson announced, he is going to quit college for one semester and channel his energy to music exclusively.
But after a long talk to him she understood, that the teenager needed that chance, and she allowed him to do what he wanted. And we all know, what happened then!
Tamikia Hill (mother)
Tamikia is Montero’s biological mother. She was married to a musician Robert Stafford and gave a birth to 3 kids with him (including the famous rapper Lil Nas X). When Montero turned 6, his parents divorced, and he left in his mother’s house in Atlanta, GA. But he turned into a troubled kid, so his mother sent him to his father’s home. Nevertheless, the rapper kept amicable relationships with his mom and he is close with her now.

When does a person become popular? It’s really hard to answer. To become a celebrity, a person needs talent and charisma. And he shouldn’t be focused on the idea to become a star.
The same thing happened to an unknown boy from Atlanta. He was dropped out of college and had no job, but didn’t fall in despair. He bought a short rap beat from a Dutch author (they were strangers at the moment of their deal), recorded a song and uploaded it to SoundCloud. Soon “Old Town Road” (yes, we speak about this massive hit) was catapulted to the leading positions of various music charts.
A lot of famous people noticed the song and paid the necessary attention to it. Billy Ray Cyrus recorded the remix to the composition. And Lil Nas X became popular overnight.
Born Montero Lamar Hill was interested in music since the earliest years and even attended music classes, but then left them in order “to remain cool in the eyes of his peers”. He attended Lithia Springs High School and then entered the University of West Georgia, but left it after a sophomore year.
The big fan of Nicki Minaj, he created a fan page, devoted to her songs and personality, in social media. Soon he decided to record his tracks, too. In late 2018 he uploaded “Old Town Road” to SoundCloud and YouTube. That was his finest hour – the song became a massive hit.
It’s hard to tell now, whether Lil Nas X will be the star of his generation, or his popular track will be his only bright artwork. But in June 2019 the musician released his debut album “Old Town Road”, which has already been certified as platinum by RIAA.
