Lil Nas X is sharing exactly how he feels about the BET Awards.

On Friday, the rapper debuted his new single with NBA YoungBoy, “Late to Da Party”, and in it, he takes some pointed jabs at the awards show.

Later in the video, Lil Nas literally crashes the BET Awards with a car using bad Photoshop effects and proclaims, “F**k BET,” while throwing cash around. Some also pointed out that the “Late to Da Party” cover art was a reference to a similar image posted to Twitter by Kanye West in 2020 in which he urinated on a Grammy Award.

Lil Nas performed at the BET Awards in 2021, with a raunchy and proud show in which he kissed one of the male dancer. He later opened up about how nervous he had been ahead of the performance.

Lil Nas X was nominated for five Grammys, as well as multiple Brit Awards and Billboard Music Awards, but when the BET Awards nominations were announced in June, the rapper was left empty handed.

“Thank you bet awards,” he tweeted earlier this month. “An outstanding zero nominations again. black excellence!”

Responding to a user who asked why he deserved to be nominated, Lil Nas said, “idk maybe 3 of the biggest songs of last year & a critically acclaimed album. i feel like that should’ve helped me a bit.”

Though he later deleted those tweets, on June 7, Lil Nas previewed his new track, rapping along to the line “F**k BET” in a video on Twitter.
