Lil Nas X had -$5.62 in his Wells Fargo account before releasing his hit single "Old Town Road."

Are you ready to make some real money moves?

​We are all familiar with the grind and pushing towards your dreams. The two things that usually stand in the way of success are lack of resources and money. Fortunately, the digital age has afforded many people the opportunity to make money and gain fame without spending too much cash. Think your favorite Instagrammer or YouTuber. They most likely built an empire with very little upfront investment. 

Lil Nas X is the latest example of turning internet promotion to a real money maker. During an interview with Narduar, the twenty-year-old artist confirmed he had -$5.62 in his Wells Fargo account before releasing his hit single "Old Town Road". He stated, "I'm not with them anymore, but shouts outs to Wells Fargo, for making me broke."


When asked about his life of being strapped for cash, Nas X replied, "I spread it out...I would get some Now and Laters every now and again and promote on Twitter."

Lil Nas X purchased the beat for "Old Town Road" for only $29.99. Talk about doing a lot with a little.
