Lil Nas X Enlists NBA YoungBoy on New Song ‘Late to da Party’

    Lil Nas X has teamed up with NBA YoungBoy for the new song ‘Late to da Party’, which arrives with a Gibson Hazard-directed video. The track features the refrain “Fuck BET,” a reference to the network the rapper has been criticizing in recent weeks after receiving zero nominations at the 2022 BET Awards, which air this Sunday (June 26). Check it out below.

    Prior to its release, Lil Nas X shared a trailer for ‘Late to da Party’ that contained a Star Wars-style title card. It read:

    Today, in a galaxy far, far away….


    Episode I


    NBA YOUNGBOY is on house arrest, on the isolated planet HATU. The Brutal Empire of Terror (BET) has betrayed LIL NAS X, turning their back on him after using him for clout.

    With the music industry in turmoil, the galaxy is looking for a hero. NAS must use the ancient power of VIDEO EDITING to free YB and defeat the evil BET before time runs out…



    ‘Late to da Party’ marks Lil Nas X’s first new music since the release of his debut album MONTERO last year.
