Lil Nas X took to social media on Tuesday to preview a song that included a diss directed at the BET Awards, just a week after he criticized the awards event for failing to acknowledge him for his work on the Grammy-nominated debut album, ‘Montero.’

The “Old Town Road” performer can be seen sitting shirtless in his vehicle, lip-syncing along to the music in the one-minute teaser.

The lyrics include verses, “Fuck BET, fuck BET/Lick it on up, slurp it/ Make it sloppy, ok, ok, ok, ok/ Look at how I top shit/ 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.”

The track, which will feature YoungBoy NBA, is dubbed ‘Late to da Party’, and the rapper’s verse is previewed briefly in another teaser.

X originally teased his track with YoungBoy in March of this year, asking his Twitter followers to vote on which of the two tracks he unveiled will be released first, “Late to the Party” or “Down Souf Hoes.”

Responding to critics on Twitter over his reasons for chastizing BET, Lil Nas X informed fans minutes after sharing the “Fuck BET” clip from “Late to da Party” that his sentiments regarding BET aren’t over being exempted from nominations.

Another Twitter user asked the multi-hyphenate performer not to bother himself with not being nominated for BET Awards, saying he already got a Grammy nomination.

To which X replied saying, “This is my point exactly. How can i get acknowledged by the most acclaimed award show in the world and then not even [have] just one nomination from my own people? is that not crazy? am i really tripping?”

Following a wave of backlash directed towards BET and the significant buzz generated by X’s teaser, BET issued a statement to address the claims and clarify how their nominees are determined.

“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,” the statement from BET reads, per Variety.

“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.”

It goes on to add, “No one from BET serves as a member of the Voting Academy. At BET, we are passionate advocates for the wonderful diversity that exists within our community… We are committed to using all of our platforms to provide visibility and inclusion for all of the many intersections of the Black community.”

BET’s Instagram account also expressed its support, sharing a backstage clip of Lil Nas X with the caption:

“This is bigger than the #BETAwards. This is real life and we will always rock with Lil’ Nas X and stand for our people.”

Lil Nas X was previously nominated for Best New Artist in 2020’s BET Awards, before going back to perform his “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” single at the 2021 BET Awards, prompting considerable homophobic backlash.
