Common Clarifies Alleged Diss Towards Drake On "Sweet"

The Chi-town rapper addresses suspicions that he insulted Drizzy on his new cut.

On his cut “Sweet,” Common takes aimless shots at “soft” rappers, rhyming, “Y’all niggas man, y'all soft motherfuckers / Singing all around me man, la la la / You ain't motherfucking Frank Sinatra / Uh, lil' bitch / Sweet ass motherfucker.”

While many believed this was a diss directed at Drake, Common recently spoke with V103 Atlanta’s The Frank and Wanda Morning Show where he clarified the lyrics.

“Some people have been saying that, but on that song, I’m just talking about whoever the cap fits. I’m talking about rappers out there that’s soft and doing the same thing. So if the cap fits, then that’s who it is,” he said “That’s all it is. It’s whoever the cap fits, then let ‘em wear it. I think it’s a lot of creative artists out there. I think Drake makes some good music.”

Naming Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Lil Wayne as contemporaries whose music he enjoys, Com said anyone who catches feelings from the cut are the ones he’s dissing. “On the song ‘Sweet’ - which we did the video for, too, in Haiti, we just put that out - a lot of rappers may feel it. And if they feel it, then that’s who I’m talking about.”

    I wouldn't say that Common is soft. I would say his music is more "grown-up." Drake is super delicate in my opinon though. This fool is a walking Fushigi Ball- extra lightwieght. If there's a battle..it would be interesting to see...however, lets not forget what Com did to Cube and the West Side Connection.

  • Anonymous

    I wish he just would have stood flat footed and said, "Yeah, I was going at that cat because that estrogen heavy BS is bad for hip hop" but instead he took the safe route. It's not like Drake could really come at Com, this dude lyrically annihilated Ice Cube when Cube and the west coast were running the game; by comparison, Drake really don't want it head to head.

  • Marvin MarvUno Lopez

    Common Is a Lyrical Beast, Drake is just a wack A$$ Clone of the bullshit industry. If you dont know bout the Culture ... then Cayate la Boca!

  • buckshot shorty

    What a load of BS. Everyone knows damn well he's talking about Drake and people of his ilk even if Common doesn't admit it directly. I mean, when you're talking about soft rappers Drake is the standard par excellence of a soft rapper. It would be very hard to think of "soft rappers" generally without immediately thinking of Drake. Would be like thinking of Nazism without thinking of Hitler. LOL, I mean who do you fools THINK he's referencing in this song? Jigga? Ghostface Killah? Young Buck? LOL, ya'll are some dumb, DUMB people for thiniing that.

  • GERMANY

    DOESN'T COMMON MAKE SONGS LIKE THAT...

  • Nico 3

    Money First - That was an emotional response. Don't cry though sport. I won't come rip your Common poster off the wall. As for the rest of you cyber goons sucking Common's dick, the recent XXL said it best. Common's never gone platinum. Drake's done it twice. Not saying two albums makes a career, but clearly he's doing something Common was never able to do... Sell records.

    • B.E.Z baby!!!

      How Common don't sell records?! he got 3 GOLD albums!!!BTW how many Grammys does Drake have??? How many classic songs does Drake have that have that defined the ENTIRE culture of hip hop??? I.E., I used 2 love H.E.R, The Light, & so forth???

    • rastastyle

      so that means justin biebers music is good?

  • Leon

    1. No names were dropped. 2. Common explained who he was referring to. 3. It's not a direct diss, so it doesn't required a direct explanation. Just because you and the media assumes a direction (ex. that he's dissin' Drake), doesnt make it so. Common -- who is a LEGEND -- doesn't need to justify something that doesnt need justification. Listen to "Sweet", then listen to his response. His response applies correctly. Don't get bein' raw as fuck and "takin' shots" confused. Main point = LISTEN. People love to just run they mouths, get angry, and diss. Mad immature. L.

  • Kal

    Shouldn't it be about the music, instead of us focusing on dropping names etc..

  • PapaBearATL

    You can always tell when a bunch of young cats get on here and start running they mouths... Y'all ain't old enough to remember Common going at Westside Connection by himself. If was meant for anyone, he would have said it. It's mostly for all you lames catching feelings right now about him not saying a name, yes, he was addressing your sensitive, tight pants wearing, kissing dudes on the mouth, false flagging, 'I'm the best blogger alive', over using the word swag and balling bitch ass nigga's... That is all

  • Ty

    #SerenaWilliams lol that is all.

  • L*K

    Rappers do the duck and hide way too much nowadays if you want to diss some one have the balls to stand behind what you say. Common and Drake are both soft so whats he talking about was he dissing himself?

  • watchunn

    The problem with hip-hop fans and the reason why your favorite hip-hop artist dies poor is because. Young Hip-Hop artist and fans dont respect their elders. Niggas will call someone old as if thats really an insult. Wisdom and experience comes with age. That like a 10 year old telling you Drake is wack he's a old ass nigga. Rock fans always respect those before them. Thats why The Grateful Dead can tour with Gray hair and have young bithces traveling miles to see them. We are killing our own with this mentally

    • Leon

      Wisdom has been spoken. As a lover of this culture and an artist, it's sad that hiphop is still in this angry and immature mental state... We should respect the creators/originators and support WHAT WE PERSONALLY LIKE, not what's trendy, and not diss everything else when it's not what we feelin'. We shouldn't be killin' our own culture. Amen to that. @get2knowpro

    • Anonymous

      Co-sign! Some hip hop fans are so unloyal to the artists. Hip hop fans are so very quick to jump off the wagon once a rapper turns a certain age. They don't understand that a lot of the time, a rappers lyrical content changes with their age. Rappers mature, so why shouldn't their music?

  • tito

    Another mc that only got balls when recording the album, but act like a coward on interviews. You throw the stone, so dont hide you hand now man. Dont be a fake Common and stop being a coward, if what you said fits to Drake say it, we all know that. If you didnt wanted to create controversial you could have save those lyrics foryourself. PS: I really dont like Drake, but lately Common is also girl's mc...

  • bigfoot89

    Common was talking about anyone in rap considered soft, so how does he lose points or lose credibility for not being explicit about how he is taking shots at. It wasn't just for rappers like Drake and Wayne, it included fans. If you're a soft mark ass nigga, that song was for YOU and only YOU....

  • the Doc

    Why dont rappers just come right out and say who the fuck they talkin about Tired of this bullshit Fuckin drop names...yall acting like a bunch of motherfuckin pussy ass motherfuckers

      You Stans don't understand that a lot of the time its the media who plant these little bugs in your ears. Take it for what it's worth. I really doubt that Common would hesitate to diss a dude if he wanted to. Do you remember, "bitch in you", that was directed at Westside Connection? You think he'd diss Cube and his boys, but be afraid to diss Drake? Really

    • tito

      Cuz they are cowards, that's the only reason. I prefer a coward that doesnt say anythign than the typical ones that "dont want problems but...".

That and call me blasphameous but LL Cool J isn't as lyrical as Drake and its just a simple fact. Oh yea he battled because he took a harmless, non-malicious line by the young mc Canibus out of context and wanted to over-impose his masculinity on the young lyricist, while Drake has been a target since the time he "just started" and the old timers are getting mad.

    • rastastyle

      i'm, just because someone gets old doesn't mean we should push him off like some old fad. he's songs are always a classic, not some autotuned bullshit

  • CanadianJada

    First Ice Cube and now Drake. Come on man. This is what you wanna do for the holidays. First and foremost. Dude entered the game when Drake was a baby. Is he jealous of the Serena Williams rumors, jealous of Phonte being an influence over Drake instead of him. Jealous of his acting, Common had accumulated as much spoken words in all his movie appearances that equal one episode for Jimmy on Degrassi. I can go on but wanna get back to the holidays. Chicago most respected MC just got put in the same category as the Da Brat. Twista is and always will be the Jason of rap and godfather of Chicago to me...

    • CaqNudg

      If you want to take it back to the Common, Ice Cube beef, common's point whoever it offends statement is actually even more valid. Sweet was obviously a song coming at other people. Ice Cube got offended by I Used To Love H.E.R., a song where that wouldn't even be near the focus. As Ice Cube basically said in "Beef": Why'd he imply hip hop got messed up on the West Coast? He came at Common cause this didn't rub him the right way. And honestly, Cube's diss track was frail compared to Comm's rebuttal.

    • turftalka

      ^Let me put it to you this way. Hip hop albums don't instantly come out as classics, they need time to settle, like wine. If an album became a classic instantly, you would've thought there would be dozens of classics in the 2000's. For example, in the past 5 years, I'd say Section.80, Return Of 4eva, MBDTF, Food & Liquor, Finding Forever, Hip Hop Is Dead, The Undisputed Truth, How I Got Over, Sir Luscious Left Foot, OB4CL2, Apollo Kids, The Renaissance, Below The Heavens, Oneirology, When Life Gives You Lemons..., Cole World, The Preface, Boy Meets World & Hell Hath No Fury would all be considered classics years from now and all from the past 5 years. But I know not all of them will, only time will tell.

    • khordkutta

      Consider this, if you are 24, YOU could be considered an old ass in HIPHOP. Also, us old dudes need to teach you young fucks some history and skill, when has a young dude, recently come out the box with a classic, certified classic, I'll wait.. but go back to the late 80s to mid 90s, cats in their teens and early 20s made classics.

    I respect all talents, and I think Hip Hop culture has evolved to a point where any genre of music can associate with it...but the essence here is that,to every form of music there is, a format is appropriated to it...what drake is doing and why I feel dudes have a say against that is bcuz he's called an MC or lets say a rapper/singer but turns to sing more on rap records,which sounds new but it not bcuz Bone Thugs were singing back in the days and tongue twisting...the core of the issue is Drake needs to understand the balance between his rap n singing ability and ensure to serve both his audience the right recipe...#StillCommonIsLegend#TheDreamer

This nigga was featured on songs with Colbie Calliat and the Jonas Brothers. I saw Nick Jonas murked Common in a freestyle. Now he's doing movies like Happy Feet and people consider him Real Hip-Hop? Fuck that, he was the originator of soft ass Hip-Hop if anything. He only got a pass because of his beef with another lame rapper Ice Cube who Eazy-E murked a long ass time ago. Ice Cube now is a bitch for doing kids movies. Fuck Drake, Fuck Ice Cube and Fuck Common. Go listen to real Hip-Hop like Gucci Mane, Soulja Boy, Lil B, and Justin Bieber. Check out V-Nasty too, that bitch got bars and she's making a collab album with Gucci Christ. Fuck that lame WTT crap with Gay-Z and Kangay Fish. It's Gucci Time!

      oh i've accepted that this garbage music like young money and all these other wack mainstream acts are accepted and loved, hell a legend like Busta has lowered himself to coon nation label or as people normally call them, Cash Money. the fact that even the best artists today want to collabo with Wayne is just tragic to say the least.

  • averagechild

    lol at people catching feelings at wheel chair jimmy aka young garnier (big ghost quote) getting dissed, who the fuck seriously cares? Common may be alot older but he definitely has a right to diss whack little canuck bitches like Drizzy aka the Sylvia Plath of rap. get the fuck out of here, next you're gonna have people saying Wayne could outrap Mos Def or Talib, those dudes will be 70 and still outrap people wayne or drake.

  • yawooh

    it's cool to think Common's washed up or not good anymore(tho i completely disagree, his last three released songs like blue sky have been really good)but to say Drake will just hand it to Common is just nonsense..Common was simply speaking wat every Drake fan/music fan (im a Drake fan too)Drake sings too much. We all heard it on Take Care and it needs to be said. Let's keep hip-hop hard, street, even party-oriented but not SOFT. If Drake wants to be both rapper/singer that's cool, release an r&b albulm and i can respect that. But if it's gonna be hip-hop, let's keep it that way. Common still got it and his albulm is sounding like a top 5 albulm atleast when it drops while Take care was a sophmore slump. Drake don't want it w/Common,Luda or any1 else dat disses and Common was just letting ppl know he can go hard like the rest of them.

      loool @ poor-man's trey songz, you're just one of the mindless drones that permeate throughout this site, ain't you? lack the creative instrumentality to form your own opinions, so you just latch onto some simpleton bullshit and just coast on by being your ignorant, parasitic self ... drake makes good music, nowhere in the same cosmos as common when it comes to hip-hop, but open your mind to a more eclectic sound, and you'll understand why take care's gotten favorable reviews thus far dumbass

      Put down the YMCMB cool aide. Drake body Common lyrically? You should really stop that. Drake is nothing but a poor man's Trey Songz.

  • Jake

    did he really just namedrop wayne? Common is in my personal top 15 ever, so no disrespect, but if he's going to list lyrical people how bout Slaughterhouse, Elzhi (super duper duper duper dope amazing), pharoahe monch, masta ace, old school em, pun, big l, g rap, rakim, nas (which he named), black thought, kweli to name a few of MANY...he name drops kanye and Wayne? Andre 3000 and Nas I agree w/ as they're both two of the best ever, but Wayne? Kendrick Lamar is a nice young cat also and J. Cole is decent (solid compared to alot of other garbage), but ELZHI, One Be Lo, Slaughterhouse, Tonedeff and some others slay them both imo

      I thought the same. Probably just said him so he wouldn't have the wayniacs mad at him. lol @ common listening to 'dear mr toilet, i am the shit'

  • Daniel

    Thats why I like Common most dudes these days would've came straight out and said "No, it isn't" instead he damn near said "yea, that weak ass singing nigga"

    • anon

      @anonymous you are the one who should learn how to read. Dan said "he DAMN NEAR said "yea, that weak ass singing nigga"

    • Anonymous

      no he didn't. he said if drake takes offense to it then it is directed towards him, or anyone else that takes offense to it. smh @ your inability to read

  • jimmy

    everybodies right drake doesnt want it with common, he also didnt say he did, common cant just throw a shot at a dude who doesnt want beef,its the same thing cube did to him, so common wont pull that,thats a sucker move

  • Phil House

      Drake did a performance where his stage set was a Frank Sinatra set. Drake came prancing down the steps singing in a suit, that's where the speculation is coming from. On top of that, Drake start fucking with Serena after Common....

  • Andre Stepurlifegameup Cooper

    I am a fan of common but nigga please.... How can he talk when he was caking to a bitch in the front yard on his knees. Check it out it feat Mary j obliged...... It doesn't matter anyways hip-hop has many different phases so i could care less how a old rapper feel. Good day

    • YoungCosby

      WTF are you talking about? Was Common singing in that song? Not at all. Is every song singing about some random bitch he fell in love with because they got a soft ass? not at all.. Think about shit before you say it dumb ass.

    • LV

      first off... that song was featuring Mary J. Blige, not "obliged"... and second, that was a song to hip hop, not a song to a woman in a window. "do you fools listen to music, or do you just skim through it"

    Who Am I More Afraid of Early 1990's Ice Cube or 2011 Drake??? Hmm, Common Dissed The Sh*t Outta The N*gga That Made "No Vaseline" Why Would He Be Afraid of The N*gga That Made "Marvin's Room" lol

    • Anonymous

      I don't know about y'all but i'm scared of Marvin's Room which is why I listen to "The Light" by Common.

    • NaSty

      Seriously. Ice Cube in the 90's was untouchable and Com didn't flinch. Drake doesn't pose a threat. What's he gonna say? Common makes better music for females anyways.

  • YADIG

    GRANDPA DON'T WANT IT WIT DRIZZY!

  • YADIG

    DRAKE WOULD TEAR THIS GRANDPA APART!! YMCMB TIL I DIE!!

  • Paco

    Common would demolish any rapper from Young Money fuck you talking about.

  • jg

    lool basically he is dissing Drake, he just doesnt want it with YMCMB so he's taking veiled shots

    • LOL

      You're an idiot. Common would destroy Drake with one sentence.

    • Marcus Dislikesmartdumbpeople Eason

      What????!!!! GTFOH!!! The only one from that camp that could even 1/2 hang, but will fall is Jae millz a former battle rapper everybody else is Garbitto!

    • Chris

      I had to laugh at your comment "Doesn't want it with YMCMB" Common could destroy all of Young Money all together. Besides let's see how Drake deals with disses, he won't respond to Ludacris let alone start on Common. You don't even want to get started with Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj cannot even put a full-fledged diss to Lil Kim. You are obviously new to this Genre called Hip Hop. Common has been a battle rapper before he was famous and he already has put out one of the best diss tracks "The Bitch in Yoo" and that diss was aimed at Ice Cube. Please make a point and don't include Sales and popularity for Young Money like every bitch ass fan does.

    " a lot of rappers may feel it. And if they feel it, then thats who Im talking about. YES, thats how to handle it! so DOPE.
