Earlier this month, Joyner Lucas' music video for "Devil's Work" was released and it got Tomi Lahren's attention, as within the record Lucas pays tribute to some fallen legends while saying that he wished the popular conservative television host would've died instead.
From there, Lahren reached out to Lucas on IG to say that she wished to sit down and talk to him to reach some common ground, no matter if the conversation occurred on or off camera.
Now sometime later, however, Lucas has taken to his IG story to reveal that the conversation won't be happening, explaining his reasoning by saying: "I created 'I'm Not Racist' so we can have conversations that need to be had and get a level of understanding of each other, 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 s*** on them."
Lucas then added that "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."
Additionally, TMZ recently caught up to Lucas a few days ago to ask him about the controversy directly, where he said that he doesn't regret his statements and that he was simply exercising his first amendment.

Joyner Lucas recently dropped the video for his song "Devil's Work," where he paid tribute to 2Pac, Michael Jackson, and Nipsey Hussle, among others. He also listed a few people "who deserve to die instead," which included Suge Knight, Donald Trump, and Tomi Lahren.
Lucas rapped on the track, "I pray you give us back the real ones and try again/Or maybe take them n****s that deserve to die instead/Tomi Lahren run her mouth and then get defensive/Laura Ingraham laughin' at death and disrespectin'/I really feel like you should teach them stupid hoes a lesson."
Tomi reached out on Instagram, telling Joyner Lucas, "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. Maybe we can find some common ground."
