Lil Nas X - President of League of Legends

The rapper, singer, and songwriter known as Lil Nas X has been named the President of League of Legends. As President of League of Legends, Lil Nas X will be "responsible for creating explosive musical moments, an ingenious League champion skin, and a spectacular live Worlds performance." When talking about "Worlds" here, we're talking about the 2022 League World Championship.

First order of business as President will be to begin Worlds with the main anthem for the competition. Of course, this year's anthem is "Star Walkin'" from Lil Nas X himself. Star Walkin' will make its debut on September 23 ahead of the start of Worlds on September 29.

Next up for Lil Nas X will be to release a new cosmetic for a new League champion. Lil Nas X worked with Riot Games to design the "Prestige Empyrean K'Sante" skin for the champion named K'Sante the Pride of Nazumah. This skin will be released on November 3 and unlockable until November 14. The skin will not be purchasable directly but can be earned through playing League of Legends or Teamfight Tactics during the duration of Worlds 2022 in-game event.

Then after the release of the new skin, Lil Nas X will hold a live performance on stage at the Worlds Opening Ceremony ahead of the start of the competition on November 5.

"I felt like it was time for me to try something new. 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!" said Lil Nas X. "STAR WALKIN’ is the only song anyone is allowed to listen to from now on. Swag fr!"
