Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window) Lil Nas X has claimed his experience with the BET Awards has been painful. The rapper spoke to Rolling Stoneabout his BET Awards diss track Late to da Party, which he released in response to the organization failing to give him any awards nominations for the second year in a row. My relationship with BET has been painful and strained for quite some time, Nas explained. It didnt start with this years nominations like most people might think. In the song, Nas repeatedly chants F### BET, and the music video shows him crashing the awards, which took place on Sunday, and repeating the chant on the stage. The singles artwork shows him urinating on a BET Award which has been thrown down the toilet. Nas also claimed that BET executives were reluctant to book him to perform at the 2021 awards show as they had concerns over his Montero (Call Me By Your Name) music video, in which he controversially gives the devil a lap dance. They did let me perform on their show last year, but only after (I gave) assurances that I was not a satanist or devil worshipper and that my performance would be appropriate for their audience, he said. A spokesperson for BET said that the singers recollection of the 2021 show is simply untrue. They continued, Since last years performance, we have been in touch to work on other projects. We are still excited about his previous performances and continue to wish him well Although Nas didnt attend the 2022 BET Awards on Sunday, his Industry Baby collaborator Jack Harlow attended wearing a Nas shirt on the red carpet in support.
