Joyner Lucas recently dropped his latest track “Devil’s Work.” In typical Joyner fashion, the song touched on political and social issues. During the song, the rapper mentioned FOX News commentator Tomi Lahren by name in a less than flattering way.
“I pray you give us back the real ones and try again/ Or maybe take them n*ggas that deserve to die instead/ Tomi Lahren run her mouth and then she get defensive,” Lucas rapped. “Laura Ingraham laughin’ at death and disrespectin’/ I really feel like you should teach them stupid hoes a lesson/ Either that or give us back somebody who deserve the blessings.”
That caught the attention of Lahren, who responded by offering to have a conversation with the hopes of bringing the two audiences together.
“Although I don’t appreciate you depicting and calling for my death in your latest music video, I would like to sit down and talk with you on or off camera,” she wrote in a Twitter DM. “Maybe we can find some common ground.”
Well, Joyner Lucas has no intention on having a conversation with Tomi and he explained why.
“I created ‘I’m not a racist’ so we can have conversations that need to be had and get a level of understanding of each other,” Lucas wrote on his Instagram story. “But…..speaking to tomi wouldn’t be productive because she’s already talked to countless rappers about their views and feelings and all she did was shit on them.”
“I’m setting myself up for failure if I have that conversation. She isn’t rational or understanding on any level. Her aim is to make us look crazy on national television. I’m not doing it. sorry not sorry.”
Charlamagne tha God previously sat down with Lahren which led to a positive discussion. It would have been interesting to see two people with such differing views like Lahren and Lucas discuss political and social issues, but unfortunately, we are in a day and age where people prefer to stay in echo chambers instead of challenging their own beliefs.
