Drake Responds To Mos Def Calling His Music Pop


Mos Def had the Hip-Hop world talking in recent days. His take on Drake’s music became a trending topic on social media. Drizzy has now responded to the MC also known as Yasiin Bey.

“Drake is pop to me, in the sense like, if I was in Target in Houston and I heard a Drake song, it feels like a lot of his music is compatible with shopping,” Mos Def said in a recent interview with The Cutting Room Floor podcast.

The “Umi Says” rapper went on to add that Drake’s music is “likeable” before laughing with the show’s host. Many social media users accused Mos Def of dissing the OVO Sound leader. Apparently, Drake felt the same way.

“What umi say again? Lemme shine my light, king, don’t switch up now,” Drake wrote on his Instagram Story in response to Mos Def’s viral comments. The post also included a video of Method Man discussing Hip-Hop.

In the clip, Method Man states, “Hip-Hop is a culture. It’s a way of life, it’s the way you dress, the way you talk, the way you walk. It’s the break dancing, the rhymes, the stage show.”

Drake has faced criticism about his place in Hip-Hop since the beginning of his career. Some rap fans have challenged the former Degrassi: The Next Generation star’s authenticity. Ghostwriting allegations have also followed the music superstar since his 2015 feud with Meek Mill.

Despite that criticism, Drake has become one of the most commercially successful acts of the last twenty years. The 37-year-old Canadian has 13 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and 13 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. He also has five diamond-certified songs.
