Lil Nas X declared he “felt like it was time for me to try something new,” in a hilarious promo video.

“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’!” the singer-rapper said in the clip.

The 23-year-old’s newest single, “STAR WALKIN” is set to debut next Thursday, ahead of “Worlds” 2022, which kicks off on Sept. 29 in Mexico City.

The ”League of Legends” World Championship is an annual tournament hosted by Riot Games where teams compete for the gaming champion title, the 70-pound Summoner’s Cup and a multi-million-dollar championship prize.

Ahead of his performance at the competition, a “Prestige Empyrean K’Sante” skin designed by Lil Nas X and the Los Angeles-based game developer will be released on Nov. 3, marking its first co-designed artist in-game collaboration.

“Lil Nas X is the most electrifying name in music, so when he showed up at our headquarters and told us that he wanted to be president of ‘League’ and join us throughout ‘Worlds,’ we of course said, ‘yes,’” said Naz Aletaha, global head of “League” e-sports for Riot Games.“We’ve all been blown away by his vision, passion, and undeniable style, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the ‘Worlds’ stage in San Francisco this November.”
