Drake commented on an Instagram post and called Mos Def a “crackhead” as beef between the two heat up.

The beef between Mos Def (now known as Yasiin Bey) and Drake began when the rap legend described Drake’s music as “compatible with shopping.” “It’s likable,” he added, also calling it “pop.”

Drake then clapped back by sharing an old Method Man interview and captioning an Instagram story. “What umi say again? Lemme shine my light king don’t change up now,” he wrote, referencing Mos Def’s “Umi Says” song.

The feud heated up after Drake posted a comment on an Instagram post that detailed a previous marriage between Mos Def and a woman named Alana Wyatt-Smith, who wrote about the relationship in her book Breaking the Code of Silence.

Drake slammed Mos Def as a “crackhead” in Instagram comment

Drake poured gasoline on the fire when he recently commented on an Instagram post. In the post, music executive Kofi “Friday” Carmichael shares clips from a We Love Hip Hop podcast episode, in which he speaks on a previous marriage between Mos Def and Alana Wyatt-Smith.

“He met a shorty out here and she wrapped his mind up, and then before you knew it, [wedding bells], right to City Hall,” said Carmichael. The two reportedly met in Toronto one weekend before getting married almost immediately.

He added, “Had him probably in the after hours. ‘You know what we should do next? Let’s go to City Hall and get married.’ ‘Yo, let’s do it.’ And that’s what he did.”

Drake stumbled upon the Instagram post and decided to comment. “Bohemian bucket,” he wrote. Those two words pack a punch. In Toronto slang, “bucket” means “crackhead.”

In the aforementioned Method Man interview, the Wu-Tang Clan member described hip-hop culture. “Hip Hop is a culture. It’s a way of life, the way you dress, the way you talk, the way you walk,” he said. “It’s the breakdancing, rhymes, stage show, DJ, mixing and scratching, the wordplay. That’s Hip Hop.”

Mos Def has yet to respond to the rapper’s latest hit.
