Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def Diss The Throne?!

Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def recently released a remix to The Throne’s “Ni**a’s In Paris” entitled “Ni**ga’s in Poorest” to commemorate the anniversary of Malcom X’s death. On the track Yasiin Bey takes the exact opposite approach that Kanye West and Jay-Z took on the track and instead raps about poverty and violence. The tone is somewhat chastising towards the original track with Yasiin rapping:

“Don’t get caught up in no throne,” and “Who the f-ck is Margiela?”

This is all pretty odd considering that last time we check, Yasiin Bey was a G.O.O.D. Music affiliate. Check out the video and lyrics below:

“These young bloods is looking scary at the mall
They wearing pants, you can still see they drawers
They rob a nigga in the bathroom stall
They took his life cause he ain’t want to take it off
Poor so hard, that sh-t cray, ain’t it, Bey? Diabetics, fish filet
Poor so hard, your house so cold, ni–a, it ain’t spring
Every winter landlord f-ckin’ with my heat again
Bougie girl, grab your hand, show you how to do this ghetto dance
F-ck your French, we ain’t in France, I’m just saying
Prince Williams ain’t do it right, if you ask me
If I was him, I’d put some black up in my family
Fake Gucci, my ni–a, fake Louis, my killa
Real drugs, my dealer, who the f-ck is Margiela?
Doctors say I’m the illest, I ain’t got no insurance
It’s them ni–as in poorest, be them rebel guerillas, huh”

Do you think Yasiin Bey is taking shots at The Throne?
