Thanks to one infamous interruption at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift is poised to be eternally linked to hip-hop god Kanye West. But her association with the genre runs deeper than a few surprising sentiments from a rapper who drank too much Courvoisier. Despite a Nashville address and pop perfection like “22,” Taylor will never pass up the chance to sing a song she loves in public–even if it’s outside of the world you’re used to seeing her in:

Over the last two years, Taylor’s used her solo tours as opportunities to duet with hip-hop heavyweights, including T.I., Nicki Minaj, Nelly, B.o.B, and Flo Rida. T-Swizzle has also earned “extended Hustle Gang” status from Tip, and managed to hold her own while beatboxing next to LL Cool J. Sort of.
