In "Late to Da Party," Lil Nas X calls out BET after being snubbed by the BET Awards. The singer shared a Star Wars-inspired intro for the video Thursday.

"NBA YoungBoy is on house arrest, trapped 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," the intro reads.

"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..."

Lil Nas X also shared cover art for "Late to Da Party" that shows him urinating on a BET Award.

The rapper previously called out BET on June 1 after failing to be nominated at the BET Awards for a second consecutive year.
