So, Yasiin Bey’s Rapper Challenge Wasn’t Supposed To Be Public…

blame it on Shake August 8, 2015

A couple days ago, a video of Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) surfaced with him calling out every rapper alive. Challenging them to a battle with him, King Los, and Black Thought.

Of course, the internet went nuts. Fans were calling for their favorite rappers to respond, Lupe Fiasco accepted almost immediately with a few bars on Twitter, and I’m sure someone was already starting on the blueprint of an arena for the event to take place.

Unfortunately, none of that is happening. Apparently, the video was unauthorized and was never meant for the public. During an interview with Ferrari Sheppard last night, Yasiin dismissed the challenge and went on to explain himself in a near ten-minute stream of consciousness.

Listen below.

If this was really happening, who would you guys have on your squad?
