Lil Nas X And Billy Ray Cyrus Saddle Up For 'Old Town Road' Remix

Can we get a YEE-HAW?

Billy Ray Cyrus helped social media star/rapper Lil Nas X turn lemons into lemonade by hopping on the remix to his track, "Old Town Road."

The original song gained heaps of traction after it was announced it was being removed from Billboard's Country chart. The publication said the song's removal was because it “does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version.”

Cyrus, who showed his love the song via social media, strapped on his boots and joined in for the song's remix. In the country-fried version of the track, the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer adds memorable bars such as "Baby's gotta habit, diamond rings, and Fendi sports bras/ Riding down Rodeo with my Maserati sports car." He also sings the final chorus of the song with Lil Nas X, who shared videos and photos of the country singer in the studio with him on Instagram.

Since the song's release to streaming services, it appears everyone is digging the remix. The song is currently at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, and we wouldn't be surprised if it continued to rise thanks to this epic remix.

Listen below, and check out some of the favorable reactions from Twitter.

Suge Knight may be locked behind the G-Wall, but the former hip-hop mogul is attempting to keep the cash flow flowing.

Monday (Oct. 21), TMZ reported that Suge Knight has signed over his life rights to Ray J, with the hopes that the reality television star will create some lucrative deals for the Death Row CEO.

According to the report, a Suge Knight and Death Row Records documentary is in the works, as well as a Tupac album. There are even talks of reviving Death Row Records.

The former CEO was sentenced to 28 years in prison last October after pleading no contest to a charge of voluntary manslaughter for a January of 2015 incident in which he struck and killed 55-year-old Terry Carter and injured Cle "Bones" Sloan in a hit-and-run.

Ray J recently inked a $1 million deal in the cannabis industry and has major investments in the headphones and scooter industries as well.

After missing the Sept. 27 birthday for Jesus is King, Ye has continued to promote the project through his Sunday Service events.

According to Ye's Pastor Adam Tyson, the College Dropout rapper almost quit rap.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap," Tyson said (check the 23:30 mark). "I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music.' I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God.' I think he was already thinking about it a little bit, but I definitely said, 'Hey, bro. I think you need to use your talents that God's given you and use that platform for God.'"

However, Mr. West has had a change of heart, and it looks like Jesus is King will drop the same day as the IMAX film.
