Lil Nas X Parodies Nike Lawsuit Over His Satan Shoes While Announcing New Single 'Industry Baby'

Lil Nas X is poking fun at the trial that almost happened in the teaser trailer for his upcoming single, “Industry Baby”.

The 22-year-old rapper plays just about everyone – from the defense lawyer to the judge – in the sneak peek of the new track and video.

The teaser parodies a trial regarding his limited edition Satan Shoes, which was in collaboration with MSCHF.

The shoes were inspired by his hit song and video, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)”, which were repurposed pairs of Nike Air Max 97s.

Just moments after the drop of the video and announcement of the shoes, Nike sued MSCHF for the “unauthorized Satan Shoes” that were “likely to cause confusion and dilution and create an erroneous association between MSCHF’s products and Nike.”

Nike and MSCHF quickly settled the lawsuit.

Lil Nas X‘s “Industry Baby” will be out on Friday, July 23.
