Mr. Vegas hosted Cardi B’s dancehall themed celebration and took pictures at Nicki Minaj and Drake throughout on his Instagram.
“CARDI SINCERELY LOVES DANCEHALL. SHE DOES NOT SEE IT AS A LITTLE FLAVORING FOR ALBUMS OR REMIXES. THE QUEEN DEDICATED HER BIRTHDAY TO WI CULTURE (PASSA PASSA DANCEHALL). THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW SHE IS NOT A VULTURE,” he captioned a social media submit.
Mr. Vegas has had points with Drake for years. In 2016 he blasted Drake for not crediting dancehall artists accurately on his Views album.
“It’s not me taking shots at Drake. It’s like standing up for a culture that I’m a part of and I’ve been a part of,” he mentioned.
Vegas complained that Drake “[turned] Beenie Man into an intro artist, like a hype man” and likewise mentioned that “on the records that Jamaican artists are sampled, no one even sees their names.”
“If you were really into the culture and into the artists, at least you would have put some respect on [their] names on the album,” Vegas mentioned.
