From music to gaming, Lil Nas X is going for world domination!

On Thursday, September 15, Lil Nas X proclaimed himself as the new president of League of Legends, Riot Games announced in a release. This new title will start with the 2022 League World Championship, where Nas X will create musical moments, a new League champion skin, and a live performance for over 180 million monthly players in the League of Legends universe.

In addition, Nas X will release the annual musical anthem for the 2022 League World Championship – a new song titled “Star Walkin’” that will debut on September 23, right before the tournament kicks off on September 29.

“I felt like it was time for me to try something new,” Nas X explained. “I’ve left my mark on pop culture in so many ways, and now it’s time to take on the world of gaming. I will be the greatest President of League of Legends of all time. Also, I’m going to make the best Worlds anthem of all time and put on the biggest, coolest, sexiest Worlds in the history of all Worlds! ‘STAR WALKIN’’ is the only song anyone is allowed to listen to from now on. Swag fr!”

The League champion will be awarded a new Prestige skin codesigned by Riot Games and Nas X, which is being dubbed “K’Sante the Pride of Nazumah.” Nas X will also take the stage for a live performance during the opening ceremony of the 2022 League World Championship.

“Lil Nas X is the most electrifying name in music,” Riot Games’ Global Head of League Esports, Naz Aletaha, explained. “So when he showed up at our headquarters and told us that he wanted to be President of League and join us throughout Worlds, we of course said ‘yes.’ We’ve all been blown away by his vision, passion, and undeniable style, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Worlds stage in San Francisco this November.”

As expected, League of Legends gamers and Nas X fans are absolutely looking forward to this exciting collaboration!

Lil Nas X’s “Star Walkin’” drops September 23 on all music streaming platforms – and you can already pre-save the song.
