While Drake and Meek Mill still seem to be getting at each other, Yasiin Bey/Mos Def is taking the battling tradition to the next level and sent out an invite to a friendly battle challenge to nobody in particular. The Brooklyn native uploaded a short clip, which shows him calling out any potential challengers.

“I’m tired of these dudes pretending like they dope. You aight, but relax. The dope niggas that think that they dope, you ain’t as dope as you think. You cool…We don’t have to make no back-and-forth corny records about it, we could put it on its feet for the world to see.”

And who’s in his corner?

“Me, Black Thought, and King Los versus anybody. Everybody…I don’t care who you tell.”

Lupe Fiasco was the first to react, updating his Instagram feed with the image below.

Safe to say it’s on.
