Earlier this year, after Beyoncé’s arguably political performance during the Super Bowl halftime show, the outspoken conservative pundit Tomi Lahren tore into the singer for apparently “perpetuating the great battle of the races.” Lahren concluded her remarks with a curious attack on Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z. “Your husband was a drug dealer,” she said. “For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine.”

The recording of Lahren’s comments went semi-viral, and now Jay-Z has responded on a new track he made with Pusha T, “Drug Dealers Anonymous.” The track features a snippet of Lahren’s remarks, followed by Jay-Z’s tongue-in-cheek verse: “Fourteen-year drug dealer and still counting / Who deserves the Medal of Freedom?

The track initially went up on Tidal, but it’s since been posted to Soundcloud:
