The Twitter missives appear to be over a Wiley song featuring Nicki Minaj and Popcaan.

Wiley's Twitter is a consistently amusing place to hang out, especially when he's got a rival in his sights. On Wednesday the grime MC returned to criticizing Drake, labelling the rapper a "culture vulture" and, in one subsequently-deleted post, telling him to stay out of England.

The origins of the one-sided Twitter beef are unclear, with Wiley firing off multiple tweets about Drake and his OVO Sound label giving "shit record deals." His issue appears to involve the clearance of vocals on a song featuring Popcaan and Nicki Minaj. In one now-deleted tweet Wiley wrote: "@Drake Suck ya mum don’t come back to England."

The FADER has reached out to Wiley for comment.

Wiley first called Drake a "culture vulture" earlier this year after the Canadian rapper performed a week of sold-out shows in London. Drake duly responded, telling one interviewer that Wiley's gripe with him was "some goofy shit."

This Friday OVO Sound will release an album of music inspired by Top Boy, which returns for a new season on the same date.
