In a recent social media post on February 3, Yasiin Bey, also known as Mos Def, shared a photo of himself wearing a designer skirt or kilt. This wardrobe choice comes after Mos Def made public statements about Drake’s credibility as a Hip Hop artist.
Waka Flocka Flame has now entered the scene, expressing his opinion on Mos Def’s fashion decision and connecting it to the ongoing controversy surrounding Drake.
Addressing Mos Def directly, Waka Flocka Flame stated, “That Mos Def thing, boy, you’re tripping. You’re really tripping, my boy. You go from telling Drake he’s not Hip Hop to putting on a Rowdy Roddy Piper dress like the wrestler. Is that what Hip Hop is? Bruh, never in my life would I do something lame like that. But I have to say something, bruh. Now you make that look like Hip Hop, and you look like a hater.”
It’s clear that Waka Flocka Flame disapproves of Mos Def’s fashion choice and implies that it contradicts the stance Mos Def took against Drake’s place in the Hip Hop genre. This commentary adds another layer to the ongoing discourse in the hip-hop community.
