As she began to gain fame, Lahren knew exactly how to keep her momentum going: She attacked Beyonce. After the singer’s Super Bowl performance, which was said to be an homage to the Black Panthers, Lahren directed her disapproval at the pop star, saying, “Your husband [rapper JAY-Z] was a drug dealer. For 14 years, he sold crack cocaine. Talk about protecting black neighborhoods. Start at home.”

Bey and Jay are typically above such nonsense, but JAY-Z had fun clapping back at Lahren anyway. In his song “Drug Dealers Anonymous” with Pusha T, released a few months later, the Grammy-winning musician sampled the audio of Lahren dissing him. It was clear that his verse (in which he embraced his past) was directed at her.
