Lil Nas X Trolls BET W/ Fake BET Awards Show Ad Ahead Of The Release Of His New Song “Late To Da Party” Where He Raps “F*ck BET” [VIDEO]


It looks like Lil Nas X is still pretty upset with BET!
Since it was announced earlier this month that Lil Nas X was not nominated for this year’s BET Awards, the “Industry Baby” rapper/singer has been taking major shots at the network. Earlier this month, Lil Nas X took to Twitter to address the matter. He tweeted,
“Thank you BET Awards. An outstanding zero nominations again. Black excellence.”
He then took it a step further and put his frustrations into a song in which he raps, “F*ck BET.” In his diss track, Lil Nas X says:
“F*ck BET, F*ck BET, F*ck BET, f*ck BET. Lick it on up, slurp it. Make it sloppy, ok, ok, ok, ok. Look at how I top sh*t. I just put like three up in the top 10, and I don’t need nobody. I just need these ccs on my body. Everything I do be tryna run, go make a profit. Read about it.”

He also accused the network of feeding into homophobia within Hip Hop culture. In one tweet Lil Nas X wrote:

“this is my point exactly how can i get acknowledged by the most acclaimed award show in the world and then not even just 1 nomination from my own people? is that not crazy? am i really tripping.”

On Tuesday (June 7) BET responded to the 23-year-old artist, reminding the world that Lil Nas X performed at the award ceremony in the past and that they are supporters of his music. They wrote:

“We love Lil Nas X. He was nominated for a best new artist BET Award in 2020, and we proudly showcased his extraordinary talent and creativity on the show twice: he performed “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus at BET Awards 2019 and his BET Awards 2021 performance was a highlight of our show. No one cheered louder that night than BET.”

It appears BET’s statement didn’t satisfy the “Old Town Road” rapper. After promoting his new track “Late To Da Party” with multiple fake brand ads, Lil Nas X took to social media on Tuesday (Jun.21) and released a fake BET promotional video to once again announce his new song which is slated to be released this Friday (Jun.24).

The video, which was edited to look like an official BET ad for the award show, shows the rapper accepting trophies on various stages with convincing text and voiceovers. However, at the end of the ad, instead of giving the date for the BET Awards show, the release date for Lil Nas X’s new song is revealed.

BET has yet to respond to Lil Nas X’s latest message. The BET Awards will take place on Sunday, June 26 at 8:00 PM EDT.
