When asked about East's comments during an appearance on The Zach Sang Show, Nas X brushed them off. "I honestly have gotten this question so many, it's like, I have the No. 1 song in the country," he said. "I do not give a fuck about what Dave East is saying." That's fair! Watch his remarks above via Complex.

Dave East wasn't the only person caught off-guard by the surprising success of "Old Town Road." The song's profile grew after it was pulled by Billboard from the Hot Country Songs chart, a move that prompted criticism and accusations of racial bias. A remix from Billy Ray Cyrus helped boost the song to the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 chart, and eventually the tune broke the record for most streams in a week, a milestone set by Drake.
