Lil Nas X Makes A Diss Song Following 2022 Bet Awards Snub
Lil Nas X is ramping up his campaign against BET. The Montero star was justifiably enraged when he was denied nominations for the 2022 BET Awards in June, and now he’s pouring his rage into an explosive diss tune.
The 23-year-old shared a sneak peek of the new tune, which is apparently titled “Fuck BET,” on Instagram.
When Lil Nas X saw he and his platinum album Montero were not on the list of nominees last week, he had a lot to say. “Thank you bet awards,” In a now-deleted tweet, Nas X wrote. “An outstanding zero nominations again. black excellence!”
He added, “idk maybe 3 of the biggest songs of last year & a critically acclaimed album. feel like that should’ve helped me a bit … not even that, doesn’t even have to be me nominated. 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.”
Queen Latifah shared Lil Nas X’s sentiments, who told TMZ that she believes the young rapper has been overlooked.
“Lil Nas X is amazing,” she replied. “He should’ve been nominated. I don’t know if that’s the case. I don’t know what’s behind all that, but inclusion is always the key. That’s what we should be striving for. There’s enough room in this world for everybody.”
