Tomi Lahren Shades JAY-Z Over His Criticism Of Trump During Letterman Interview

The controversial personality fired shots at the rapper after he said Trump brought out the "ugly side of America." 

JAY-Z covered an array of topics in his episode of the David Letterman-starring Netflix series My Guest Needs No Introduction, including his past infidelities, his mother's coming out story, and his feelings on President Trump.

It seems like JAY-Z's remarks on Trump's effect on America ruffled a few feathers -- specifically those of former The Blaze host, Tomi Lahren, who took to Fox News to address the music mogul.

She began her rant posing the question, "Why do all these Trump-deranged, selectively offended, loud-mouthed celebrities really hate this president?" before blasting the rapper for supporting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

"JAY-Z, it’s pretty ironic that you think Donald Trump is a racist when you campaigned for Hillary Clinton! Remember that?" she said. "That would be Hillary Clinton, the woman who called young Black Americans ‘superpredators.’ The one who stood by Bill when signed the $30 billion crime bill that imposed the death penalty on dozens more crimes and mandated life sentences for some three-time offenders."

During his My Guest Needs No Introduction Interview, Jay was asked to share his thoughts on the Trump administration, and said that Trump is "bringing out an ugly side of America that we wanted to believe was gone, but it’s still here and we still gotta deal with it. We have to have the tough conversations; we have to talk about the N-word, we have to talk about why white men are so privileged in this country.”

Lahren added that Jay should "go back to rapping your filthy lyrics and celebrating your drug-dealing resume, and let Donald Trump make America great again for us all."

Solange's Performance Piece 'Witness!' To Premiere In September

Solange is the composer and director of a special performance piece titled "Witness!" The piece will be performed on September 17 at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.

"So excited to announce “Witness!” a special performance piece composed and directed by myself at the phenomenal @elbphilharmonie (photo’d here:)," she wrote on Instagram to accompany a photo of the event flyer, which features the picturesque venue. Tickets for the performance go on sale on May 31.

Earlier this year, Solange dropped her performance slot at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, citing "major production delays" as the cause for cancellation. "She sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future," the official Coachella Twitter page read.

The performance coincides with the release of her latest studio-album, When I Get Home. Check out her announcement below.

YG Releases '4REAL 4REAL' Album Featuring Meek Mill, Tyga, And More

After a brief delay, YG’s fourth studio album, 4REAL 4REAL is finally here. The 14-track project arrived on Friday (May 24) and features guest appearances by Meek Mill, Tyga, Kamaiyah, DaBaby, and more.

The album's release date was initially suspended in light of Nipsey Hussle's untimely death in March 2019. YG included a song, entitled "My Last Words (Nipsey Hussle Tribute)." The track includes audio from YG's speech at Nip's memorial service.

Just hours ahead of the album's release, YG announced that he would be giving a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children. "I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album,” YG said in a recent interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood. “By the time they get 18, from me, they’re gonna have a bag sitting there.”

YG To Give Percentage Of Album Sales To Nipsey Hussle's Children

YG is gearing up for the release of his new studio album, 4REAL 4REAL. Ahead of the album's Friday release, YG stopped by Big Boy's Neighborhood on Wednesday (May 23), where he discussed his friendship with Nipsey Hussle. He also revealed his plans to donate a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children.

YG revealed his thoughtful plan when he was asked about the epitaph that is included on the album's cover art.  "I put that 'In Loving Memory of Nip' on the album because I'm giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album. So by the time they hit 18, from me, they gonna have a bag," YG explained. He also noted that he is considering making donations to the family for the next six albums.

Nipsey and YG have been friends since 2010. "I think we did some music the same day," YG said of their first encounter. "After that, we just kept running across each other on some L.A. shit. From that, it just started to build... He ended up being like a big brother to me," YG says. "The brand shit was the thing we talked about all the time, building a brand that's gonna [outlast] you."

4REAL 4REAL was slated to drop earlier this year but was pushed back in light of Nipsey's untimely passing. It now drops this Friday (May 24).
