Drake Says He Won't Respond To Common's Diss Because He Believes The Chicago MC Used Him Just To Sell His Album


It looks like the Common vs. Drake beef is officially over.

When Common spoke to Rolling Stone last week he told them that he wasn't going to fire any more shots if Drake didn't respond to his "Stay Schemin" diss.

"I feel like I said what I had to say, and I'm just going to let it be at that point," he said at the time. "Now, if something else happens, then I'll just have to act accordingly. But right now, I feel like, man, I said what I needed to say about this situation on record."

Now Drake has gone on record saying he won't respond because he feels like Common was only using him to promote his album.

"Despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a hip hop moment or a battle for the sake of musical integrity," Drake told Nah Right in a new interview. "It’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album. More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isn’t a fan of what Common has done for our genre. A guy who made such an incredible career for himself based off expressing genuine feelings about life and love is now targeting me for sharing my story."

How do you feel about Drake not responding? Did he lose the battle or was he right to a.ssume it was a publicity stunt by Common?

Back in November when Common dropped “Sweet”, the second single from his most recent full length, a couple of lines that sounded suspiciously like shots at Drake immediately caught people’s attention. Com beat around the bush for a while, as rappers are known to do, before eventually admitting that those shots were in fact aimed at the young superstar. Strongly worded statements were then exchanged between the two on the original version of Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin” and a subsequent remix before the conflict appeared to fizzle.

Common told Rolling Stone last week that he’s finished with the beef and Drake has had ample time to record a response if he felt the need to do so. I recently caught up with him while he was on the set of his video for “The Zone” with The Weeknd and asked him about another “controversial” line from “Stay Schemin”, whether we should expect a second Common response and if there was any truth to the rumor that he fired his entire staff.

So people want to know: will you respond to Common?
No. Because despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a “hip hop moment” or a “battle for the sake of musical integrity”…it’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album. More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isn’t a fan of what Common has done for our genre. A guy who made such an incredible career for himself based off expressing genuine feelings about life and love is now targeting me for sharing my story.

There’s a line from your “Stay Schemin” verse about Kobe’s soon to be ex-wife Vanessa that has gotten some negative attention. Can you speak to what you were trying to express with that line?
That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else. That line had everything to do with me and what goes on in my head as a 25 year old man with this much income flowing in. Kobe is and always will be a friend and an icon to me.

Following the release of Take Care, rumors started to circulate that you had fired your entire staff, was there any truth to that?
No my team is stronger than ever and ready for 2012. I’m excited for what this year will bring.

What are your plans for OVO/XO?
OVO and XO will grow immensely both separately and together this year. The Weeknd is about to hit the road and come perform all that incredible music for his fans. I’m looking forward to piecing something together where we can share a stage and give people the full experience.

What’s next for you, besides the tour?
I have begun working on new music already and I’ll be recording during the whole college tour with 40. Making better music and building myself as a business is all that’s on my mind. Hopefully some acting as well.

This fu*king f*ggot Drake

How you go from say my name to my fu*king face to

"Despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a hip hop moment or a battle for the sake of musical integrity,"
Of course the dumbass Drake stans who don't realize that Common who has never been a big selling artist for his career & didn't have his biggest record until Like Water for Chocolate, are gonna rush in and agree wholeheartedly with this comment:

It’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album.
...but it's hilarious how you go say my name & send subliminal shots on Stay Schemin to now he doesn't want to respond.

He obviously knows he's not better at rapping then common,by backing out it makes him look like the more mature dude in the situation.Getting dissed by a legend for expressing your emotions is winning,what can drake say about common in a diss song anyway?

Damn Lisa Ann fine as fu*k.... Wait... Wasn't this thread supposed to be about Drake's soft bi*ch a.ss... I read all of the words he said and it translates into him being scared. It's obvious he can't diss back. His stans would probably believe what he said. That a dude named Common did it to sell his album.. Damn Lisa Ann....
Nah itz just about soft a.ss now...

da truth always somewhere in da middle

for n*ggas on top of game we knew Sweet wuz for Drake from jump. da "well its about da game right now, whoever feel it apply to them then thats who its for" wuz a lie. he narrated on Kid Cudi skinny jeans wearin sing song album so couldnt be him right? (hypocrite status tho be real) and it wuznt Mr 808s & Heartbreaks Kanye becuz thats his homie. so had to be Drake and once he said Frank Sinatra dat solidified it. becuz a few weeks prior to da Sweet mp3 leak Drake wuz talmbout bein inspired by Frank Sinatra in a Take Care promo interview (basically mo Jigga d!ckridin from Drizzy). we KNEW it wuz Drake but Common kept denyin it UNTIL....


promo run upon TDTB album release when he says yes its bout Drake. so why da denial to begin wit? why even send sublims when u can go da Fif/Pac route of jus sayin names in da 1st place? cool so HE confirmed it via interview. then Drake responds DA SAME WAY he did wit sublims on RF mixtape released on a Friday. by Monday Comm bodies that n*gga by talmbout bein mixed and #Canada Dry emceeing at it finest right there mayne


so is Drake wrong foe his a.ssessment? that Comm wuz strategic bout sayin who da diss wuz for to gain maximum attention foe his project? look battles is whut hip hop built on so Comm aint wrong foe sayin fu*k Drake lemme show u how to emcee. unknown KRS dissed MC Shan & built a whole career on it. but is yall rational enough to say Drake a f*ggit. but he a f*ggit who speak da truth on Comm dishonest moves?
