Lil’ Nas X is no stranger to delivering unexpected collaborations and surprises. In just a few years, he’s worked with Nas, Kanye West, Jack Harlow, Cardi B and countless others. This weekend, he’s expanded his catalog even further to include one of the biggest young stars in music today, NBA Youngboy. With both stars unable to make into the 2022 BET Awards, the two have worked together to produce an anti-BET anthem
“NBA Youngboy is on house arrest, trapped on the isolated planet of HATU. The Brutal Empire of Terror (BET) has betrayed Lil’ Nas X, turning their back on him after using him for clout,” the collaboration’s promo video 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.”
In one of the more unexpected collaborations native, the two stars seamlessly fuse their styles together over the energizing production from Take A Daytrip and Jason Goldberg.
“Don’t try me, you better save that shit for somebody else/Don’t try me, ’cause, b*tch, I can’t be late to the party,” Lil’ Nas X raps on the song’s chorus.
Lil’ Nas X may not have a BET Award nomination, but he may have another hit on his hand. Check out his latest collaboration with NBA Youngboy below.
