Drake Responds to Yasiin Bey Comments

On Monday (Jan. 15), Drake shared a post on his Instagram Story in response to Yasiin Bey's recent comments about Drake not being totally hip-hop. In the post, which can be seen below, Drake shared a clip from a throwback Method Man interview where the Wu-Tang Clan member is speaking on the many different aspects of hip-hop.

"Hip-hop is a culture," Tical says in the clip. "It's a way of life. The way you dress, the way you talk, the way you walk. Breakdancing, rhymes, stage show..."

Drake directly addressed Bey in the post writing, "What Umi say again? Let me shine my light king don't change up now."

Drizzy's comment is a reference to Yasiin Bey's 1999 song "Uma Says" where he raps, "My Umi said shine your light on the world/Shine your light for the world to see."
