“Thank you BET Awards. Yet another outstanding zero nomination,” he tweeted before revealing his source of anger. “I just feel like the black gay ppl has to fight to be seen in this world, and I try to act like we’re invisible even when we get to the top.”

BET isn’t the only one reported by Nas. “Don’t try me, because bitch, I can’t be late for the party,” YoungBoy raps before coming to his line.
This is Nas’ first music since his debut album Montero in September. He is working on follow-up and has previously collaborated with Saucy Santana titled “Down Souf Hoes”.
You can catch Nas playing the song “Late to Da Party” on his “Long Live Montero Tour,” which kicks off in Detroit on September 6.
