LONDON (WIAT) — Music artist Lil Nas X knows how to use social media to his advantage.

His hit song “Old Town Road,” which recently went 3x Platinum according to RIAA, gained popularity through the app Tik Tok and then being reposted to Twitter, Instagram, etc.

Despite his meteoric rise to fame, Lil Nas X has not forgotten his roots as he returned to social media to accomplish another one of his goals: cook with Gordon Ramsey.

In a Twitter exchange, Lil Nas X pleaded to Ramsey to teach him to make paninis while the artist was still in London.

The reason for paninis comes from one of the songs on Lil Nas X’s EP “7” which is titled after the pressed sandwich.

Ramsey told Lil Nas X to “name the day…”

Wednesday, both men posted pictures of them on social media with the finished creations.

No word yet if Ramsey made Lil Nas X cry by yelling at the artist while crafting the meals.
