Drake has aligned himself with Jamaican culture, right down to his use of an island patois.
But Kingston-born Dancehall star Sean Paul isn't down with Drizzy (and others) putting out dancehall music, which Paul thinks they don't properly respect and understand.
"It is a sore point when people like Drake or Bieber or other artists come and do dancehall-orientated music but don't credit where dancehall came from and they don't necessarily understand it," Paul told the Guardian. "A lot of people get upset, they get sour. And I know artists back in Jamaica that don't like Major Lazer because they think they do the same thing that Drake and Kanye did-they take and take and don't credit."
Earlier this year, Mr. Vegas made a similar argument, labeling Drake a Dancehall "fake."
Do they have a point?
