While Drake and Meek Mill are still duking it out on record (kind of), Yasiin Bey, (f.k.a. Mos Def) just sent out a friendly battle challenge to nobody in particular. In a short clip uploaded to YouTube today, a lighthearted Mos, fresh off his first standup comedy performances earlier this week, issues a grinning call-out to any and all challengers.
"I'm tired of these dudes pretending like they dope," he says while perusing a lapful of sunglasses. "You aight, but relax. The dope niggas that think that they dope, you ain't as dope as you think. You cool...We don't have to make no back-and-forth corny records about it, we could put it on its feet for the world to see."
As for his set, Mos makes sure to let the world know who he's rolling with. "Me, Black Thought, and King Los versus anybody," he says. "Everybody...I don't care who you tell."
For his part, Lupe Fiasco quickly hopped into action, accepting the challenge on Instagram and offering up Mickey Factz as a potential opponent for King Los. Check out Lupe's responses below, including a sly Quentin Miller reference in the form of a written response.
