Lil Nas X has announced that he’s taking a break from music and has canceled two scheduled shows as a result.

The “Old Town Road” rapper took to Twitter this weekend to make the announcement. Explaining that after a “wild” past year he’s “ready to take a little time off.” The viral star then went on to confirm that he’s pulling out of both Twitchcon and the Sandbox festival he was due to perform at.

The announcement comes after a historic run of the Lil Nas X’s breakout single “Old Town Road,” the song which catapulted him to fame and made him a household name in a matter of months.

Earlier this month Lil Nas X released a remix of his hit single “Panini,” featuring Dababy. Watch the video here.
