Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) does not consider Drake to be pure hip hop, describing his music as more mainstream and commercial, leaning towards pop rather than hip hop.

He questioned whether Drake challenges his audience with art they might not necessarily enjoy, and suggests that there is a lot of pom-pom cheering for him.

Bey hesitated to answer, but eventually compared Drake’s music to shopping at Target.

Despite Drake’s ability to rap, he is still considered too pop-y for some in the hip hop community.
