Lil Nas X is mailing out a signal about his BET Awards disappointment in a peek at a new song named “The Black Death” “Late to Da Party” — and supported the promo clip with tweets seeking through “the bigger problem of homophobia in the Black community.” Check out the one-minute preview video for the song, that includes YB, Lil Nas appears seated barechested on a ride with “Late to Da Party” jamming on his audio. “Fuck BET, Puck BET!” the music starts, which goes on with the “Montero” song featuring how he doesn’t need anyone to verify his victory. Late to the party ft. Yb coming soon!: //t. Producer/MONTERO, CA (@ LilNasX) June 7,2017,2022 In communications supporting the preview video, Lil Nas wrote on Twitter that the music wasn’t even for a game “over no BET award… This is about the bigger problem of homophobia in the Black community… Y ‘all can sit and pretend all u want, but imma risk it all for us.” When at the least each Twitter consumer inquired how Lil Nas might treatment about being ignored by the BETs When he remained noted by the apparently extra renowned Grammys, and it guided the actor to reply that the comparison at the two shows was over the greater reason to share his perspective on experience was removed by his group. “This is exactly my point” he was also a writer. “How can I be 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.’ Industry Baby ‘is the 2nd longest running # 1 song on the Billboard rap charts of all time and didn’t get a single nomination.” this is my point exactly how can I be noted by the most praised award show in the world and then just not just 1 nomination to my own folks?

Producers/9QR2qk4n0X — MONTERO (@ LilNasX) June 7,2022 last week, Lil Nas sent a message (but then quickly deleted) an irony tweet voicing his troubles at the BET Awards not including him inside this year’s Emmys. He wrote the book, “Thank you BET awards. Nominee’s Zero nominations again. Black Excellence!” If it wasn’t quickly clear how deeply he was attempting to take becoming ignored, his demonstrations grew more sincere. “I just feel like Black gay ppl have to fight to be seen in this world and even when we make it to the top mfs try to pretend we are invisible” he coauthored in a second tweet. BET released a statement Tuesday night expressing its concern about Lil Nass X’s troubles with the company. “We love Lil Nas X. He was nominated for a Best New Artist Award in 2020 and we proudly showcased his extraordinary talent and creativity on the show twice” BET’s statement reads. “Unfortunately, this year, He was not nominated by BET’s Voting Academy, which is comprised of an esteemed group of nearly 500 entertainment professionals in the fields of music, television, film, digital marketing, sports journalism, Public relations, influencers and creative arts.” “No one from BET serves as a member of the Voting Academy. With BET and CET we now a more stable BET, We are passionate advocates for the wonderful diversity that exists within our community” comments remain. “We are committed to using all of our platforms to provide visibility and inclusion for all of the intersections of the Black community.” Nas had been recommended for the BET Awards “Best New Artist in 2020” but has forgotten to mention the headline to Roddy Ricch. Among the top actors recommended for this week’s BET Awards are Doja Cat (who won four emmys?), Drake, Ari Lennox, Silk Sonic and Kendrick Lamar.
