Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has built a surprisingly large coalition in his bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

But it appears rapper Lil Nas X is not on board with the “Mayor Pete” craze.

The “Old Town Road” singer recently declined to collaborate on a video with Buttigieg that would have played at a BuzzFeed event in New York, according to the Daily Beast.

Buttigieg shouldn’t be offended, however. Lil Nas X did not specifically have a problem with the mayor — he merely wants to avoid endorsing a candidate, per the Daily Beast.
