News Anchor Tomi Lahren Claps Back at Pusha T and Jay Z for Sampling Her on “Drug Dealers Anonymous”
On Tuesday night (May 31), Pusha T released his Jay Z-assisted single "Drug Dealers Anonymous" to much fanfare. Pusha had a new single out, Jay Z had a new meme-referencing verse and there was an audio clip from news anchor and TheBlaze host Tomi Lahren. In February, following Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime performance, Lahren went on a rant against the singer, saying, "This isn’t about equality, it is about ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats and using fame and entertainment value to do so...Talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home.”
Hov laughed off the screed, but apparently hadn't forgotten about it, as portions appear on "Drug Dealers Anonymous." Before his verse, Lahren can be heard saying,"Your husband was a drug dealer, for 14 years he sold crack cocaine." Jay then follows it up with a referential line, rapping, “Fourteen-year drug dealer and still counting / Who deserves the Medal of Freedom? My accountant.”
Now, Lahren has offered up a response to her inclusion on the track, taking to Twitter Tuesday night to deflect any perceived diss but also sort of work promo for the single. "Always wanted to be on a track with two drug dealers. Thanks," she wrote. Apparently roused by it all, Lahren then published a second tweet around 1 a.m. and another this morning. "He used a sound bite from me in his rap and you think I take that as a loss? Nah. I'm good...I've got 99 problems but trust me, being on your rap ain't one."
So she likes it? Or isn't bothered by it? It's hard to say but by including the song's title as a hashtag in each of the three tweets, Lahren certainly isn't distancing herself from it.
