The biographical documentary “Lil Nas Along the way, it brings together Nas’ journey to own his identity as a black queer artist.
“I want my fans to see the real me. I’m someone who is always joking and making jokes 24/7, so through this movie they can take what they want,” Nas told reporters on the red carpet. The film is also the end of an era in his life and the beginning of a new one, he said.
“This movie is so direct in terms of the state of mind I’m in… a little confused.” Nas said.

“Nas’ fans have embraced his message of becoming the person you are meant to be and acknowledging all the parts of yourself that you love and fear,” Estrada said.
