Lil Nas X Hades Crossover Fan Art Is Devilishly Divine
It has been quite a week for musician Lil Nas X, after the release of his controversial music video for his new song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The video utilizes a variety of biblical and Greek mythological imagery to express Lil Nas X’s history with institutionalized religion, which sparked outrage from some as expected. Another popular recent media piece that uses mythological figures is Hades, which many considered to be the best indie game of 2020. Fans celebrated the game with cosplay and God of War crossover art, and now that tradition continues with new Lil Nas X Hades crossover fan art.

As reported by Game Informer, fan artist Antonio Demico released a Lil Nas X Hades crossover fan artwork on their Twitter account recently. As one may recall, the “Montero” music video ends with Lil Nas X killing the devil, only to take the devil’s horns away and adopt the throne of Hell as Lil Nas X grows a pair of wings. Calling back to this, Demico has imagined this dark deified version of the musician as a Greek god in the art style of Hades.
Going with the next logical step, Antonio Demico then continued the Lil Nas X Hades crossover series by placing his depiction of the musician in a screenshot of what Lil Nas X’s dialogue would look like in the game. Demico placed lyrics from Montero in these boxes, and it certainly feels like the ominous heavy dialogue that one of the Greek gods in Hades might say to Zagreus. This art is quite stunning to behold and shows just how well Lil Nas X would fit in in the world of Hades. Let’s just hope Zagreus doesn’t have to take on Nas on that Old Town Road, for his sake.
