Lil Nas Spoofs BET Awards In ‘Late To The Party’ Teaser: Look + Listen

In his usual tongue-n-cheek style Lil Nas X pre-promotes his next release with humor as the superstar rapper shared his new song, “Late to the Party” – featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again – along with a string of teasers including one for the upcoming BET Awards.

Taking to social media the 23-year-old tweeted “LATE TO DA PARTY w/ YOUNGBOY THIS FRIDAY!” along with pics of him sitting on a toilet with his pants down and posing with a stack of cash. And in a second set of photos, the musician (born Montero Lamar Hill) shows off a Louis Vuitton ensemble and flips off the camera.

In an attempt to to get fans to add the single to their streaming platform of choice, earlier in week, Lil Nas released the pre-save code for the track along with fake McDonald’s and Grindr collaborations. He also posted a spoof video falsely promoting the BET Awards featuring clips of his prior performances, including his controversial kiss at the 2021 event. “Culture’s biggest night where stars become legend. And it’s all live,” a narrator says as a snippet of “Late to the Party” plays in the background. A narrator continues in the spoof video, “The BET Awards, midnight, Friday, June 24, with live performances from Lil Nas X and Young Boy Never Broke Again. You won’t want to be late to this party.”

On June 7, the two-time Grammy Award winner teased a portion of “Late to the Party” and shared a video rapping the song’s lyrics: “F–k BET, f–k BET/ F–k BET, f–k BET/ Lick it on up, slurp it/ Make it sloppy, OK, OK, OK, OK/ Look at how I top s–t/ 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.”

“Late to the Party” arrives after Lil Nas X claimed he was snubbed by the awards show after giving him an “outstanding zero nominations” for this year’s BET Awards, “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 wrote at the time.
