It’s safe to say that Tomi Lahren, the conservative pundit known for firing shots at Colin Kaepernick, questioning the integrity the Black Lives Matter movement, and engaging in Twitter battles with Wale, has a rocky relationship with hip-hop culture.

While she has developed a strangely love-hate relationship with The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God, it’s somewhat difficult to picture the “Make America Great Again” hat wearing Lahren as anything remotely resembling a hip-hop fan. Evidently, there may be more than meets the eye, as Tomi Lahren recently uploaded a video in which she lip-syncs to 21 Savage’s “Bank Account.”

Lahren, using Instagram Live to record the footage, actually captioned the video with 21 Savage’s name. As per usual, people were quick to jump to conclusions on either side the spectrum. Some deemed her the portrait hypocrisy, others fired f lewd fantasies, while many were simply left baffled by the apparent cultural dissonance.
And while Republican pundits are ten associated as vocal hip-hop haters, XXL reports that Lahren previously admitted to be a fan hip-hop music. She actually praised Kendrick Lamar’s 2016 Grammy performance, stating ” Kendrick Lamar actually writes his songs, he speaks his truth. It’s refreshing to hear a hip-hop artist rap about something other than drugs, sex and violence—I say this as someone who happens to love rap music.” Perhaps The Boondocks were on to something, when they depicted Ann Coulter’s “true nature” behind closed doors.
