Lil Nas X Criticizes The BET Awards For Having “Outstanding Zero Nominations”
Lil Nas X has risen to become one of this generation’s top stars since 2019. It is unavoidable. After consistently topping the charts, he defied assumptions that he’d be a one-hit wonder. While groups such as the Grammys applauded his efforts, he does not appear to be receiving the same support from BET.
The BET Awards announced their nominations yesterday, and Lil Nas was absent from all of them. Given how unstoppable he’s been over the last 12 months, it’s surprising that he doesn’t feel slighted that his efforts aren’t recognized at the BET Awards.
“Thank you BET Awards. An outstanding zero nominations again. Black excellence,” With praying hands and a white heart, he tweeted. “I try to be humble so bad but it’s really fuck you to a lot of you n***as.”
He , “I will be selling fish plates outside of the BET Awards this year.”
Many people appear to believe Lil Nas X was slighted this year, but some appear to be even more surprised that Jack Harlow was honored before him. Drake, Future, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Lil Baby are among those nominated for Best Male Artist.
