Lil Nas X has created a shoe design that is inspired by Satan himself. Using a black and red Nike Air Max 97, Lil Nas X started a copyright infringement war with Nike.

The Satan Shoe launched March 29th 2021, and has created a lawsuit between Lil Nas X and Nike. The shoe supposedly contains 60cc ink and 1 drop of human blood in the sole, and there was 666 pairs individually numbered. The shoe was instantly sold out once it was released, for over $1000.

“It’s creepy, especially the part about the one drop of human blood. Even without the human blood in the shoe, I personally would not support the shoe, or show interest in it, due to my belief,” junior, Jonathan Polohronakis said.

Nike has decided to sue MSCHF once they found out the shoes were attached to Lil Nas’s latest song Montero (Call Me By Your Name). A judge blocked all shoe shipments to customers for the time being.

“Nike filed a trademark infringement and dilution complaint against MSCHF today related to the Satan Shoes,” Nike told CBS News. “However, we can tell you we do not have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF. The Satan Shoes were produced without Nike’s approval or authorization, and Nike is in no way connected with this project.”

On the brighter side of things, Nas’s latest song ‘MONTERO’ is actually #1 on billboard’s as of right now, which is his second song to top charts since ‘Old Town Road’ in 2019. Honestly, these songs are so different, one is a country-trap, that kids enjoy listening, while the other is highly inappropriate. Lil Nas “hopes his haters were sad” after his song hit number one.

“Y’all told a 19 year old who had just escaped the lowest point of his life that he would never have a hit again. You told him to stop while he’s ahead. He could’ve gave up. But 4 multi platinum songs and 2 #1’s later, he’s still here. Thank you to my team and my fans! ily,” tweeted, rapper, Lil Nas X.

As of April 13th, ‘Montero was not working on any streaming services. The song was told to be possibly removed from any music platforms. Lil Nas wanted all of his fans to stream ‘Call Me by Your Name’ before it was taken down the next day. But the song has continued to stream ever since and was not taken down.

“MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” on streaming. The label released a statement, saying the song removals are “out of control,” though they are working to “keep the song up on the streaming services,” said, POPCRUSH, Emily Tan.

The song Montero was not proved to be taken off Apple Music, YouTube. Etc. There was no known straight answer as to what was going on with the streaming of the song.

According to Brian Gallagher, for, “Lil Nas X and his record label has baffled fans as they appear to falsely claim controversial song Montero has been REMOVED from streaming sites.”
