Forget Drake And Meek Mill -- A Yasiin Bey Vs. Lupe Fiasco Battle Might Be On The Way

OK, you don't have to forget Drake and Meek, but still, this is exciting.

Lupe Fiasco and Yasiin Bey have appeared together before, on Kanye West's "Don't Look Down," and share a number of collaborators. But they may get in the ring and square off against one another soon (the musical ring, of course).

"Me, Black Thought and King Los versus anybody -- everybody," the man formerly known as Mos Def said in a new video. "Battle anybody. I don't care who you tell. Red Bull Music Academy, put up a mil on that, and we'll give our winnings to charity."

Hey, good competition and a good cause? Hard to not get behind this.

Mos wasn't done, though.

"Tired of these dudes pretending like they dope -- you alright, but relax," he said. "The dope n---as that think they dope, you ain't as dope as you think.

I know n---as be thinking I'm crazy -- whatever. I ain't playin'."

Lupe Fiasco saw the challenge...and accepted.

That second part, of course, is a reference to Quentin Miller, Drake's alleged ghostwriter.

It seems some Drizzy fans caught wind of Lu's remarks, and didn't take too kindly to them, so he followed up with a clarification of sorts.

Fans, understandably, seem excited about the prospects of a Mos vs. Lupe showdown.

Alright fellas, let's make this happen.
