In case you didn’t know, conservative media pundit Tomi Lahren is a pretty big fan of hip hop. She’s become such a huge cultural icon in Donald Trump’s America, however, that she’s now actually getting bars rapped about her in the genre, which has to feel a little bit like the Twilight Zone when you’re getting called out in a genre of music that you actually love.
Wale went in on Tomi by calling her “Tami” in his new track “Smile” with D.C. rapper Phil Ade. Here’s the reference via John Gotty:
“The Alt Rights hate us
Some back baby mommas hate us
We only learn half of the drama, other side crazy
On behalf of Charlamange I’m sure he ain’t trading sides
Maybe I should meet Tami Lauren, I’ll Lauryn Hill her
Trainor, she miseducated anyway
Prolly hate the color of my face
I’m just a young black rapping ass African
Ain’t never wanted to have it and now he has it his own way”
This, of course, started some melodrama on Twitter, where Tomi fired the first shot, leading to a somewhat cringe-some exchange between the two.
Here’s how I propose they settle it: When Tomi inevitably lands Megyn Kelly’s job at Fox News for millions of dollars, they play “bank account roulette” live on the air to see who has the fatter stacks of cash waiting at their immediate disposal. Liquid assets only!
Here’s the track itself:
