Lil Nas X's success and his fortune are majorly attributed to the single. He made a lot, more so if we take the investment into consideration. He spent only $50 to make this song—around $30 purchasing the beat from producer YoungKio and another $20 recording it at Atlanta studio CinCoYo. As per Forbes, he made around $14 million pretax from the song. 


What went wrong with "Satan Shoes"?

Lil Nas was selling Satan Shoes with real drops of blood in them for $1,018 each. It was a limited edition with only 666 pairs being made. The shoes were technically Nike's and the company did not agree to them being made. Hence, they sued and even won the bid to halt the sales.

Social media personality


Lil Nas started gaining traction on social media as an internet personality. He once stated in an interview that he deliberately tried to gain a following on social media and ultimately succeeded with Twitter. He was known for making fan accounts for Nicki Minaj in 2017 and in the process of creating those accounts, he went viral. Although he initially denied having any ties with those fan accounts, he eventually confessed after making a career in music. 

Lil Nas X reportedly owns a home in Sherman Oaks California and he actually accounted for his purchase on Twitter. He captioned the post, "bought my first house today."
