During his Monday performance at an L.A. club called Supper Club, Future explained his absence from the BET Awards stage the night before. 

The Shade Room documented his explanation in a pair of videos on their Instagram account. Here's what Future had to say:

"You see what happened... BET, they had a nigga about to perform up there or whatever, but under the circumstances of me performing. I can't fuck with that shit, you know what I'm saying, because they tried to get a nigga to do some off-brand corny shit.

"I'm not about to sell my soul for no publicity stunts."
