Common Says Drake Beef Isn't Over Serena Williams & That He's Battling For Hip Hop

Com Sense explains the origins of the beef with Drizzy.

Common and Drake have been exchanging shots at one another over the past few weeks, with the former most recently releasing a scathing diss remix to Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin.” Speaking with Sirius Hip-Hop Nation last night, the Chicago, Illinois native said that the battle is not because Drizzy was hanging out with his ex-girlfriend Serena Williams, but more because he took it to the next level.

“Well, the song ‘Sweet,’ for me, was a song where I was really talking about Hip Hop. A lot of the softer side of Hip Hop is just being the example of what people think Hip Hop is. To me, you can express yourself in many different ways, but I was just missing that hardcore Hip Hop, that raw Hip Hop sound, and I was just talking about it. I was saying, man, the song ‘Sweet’ was cats out there doing sweet music. Dude must have took offense to it, so he came out and said some things, and once he said something on record, I said something on record.”

Common asserts that he did not intend to specifically diss Drake, but once he responded in concert, the floodgates opened.

“That was the first thing that he responded and said something. I was like, well, I wasn’t trying to address you specifically, but if you feel like you are that person and if you’re addressing this to me, then I have to address you back,” he continued. “But my whole mentality was that I’m doing this for Hip Hop music. I’m not trying to bring somebody down. At the end of the day, I just expressed what I felt about Hip Hop. And I’ma keep it on that level, just as an emcee. That’s how I battle. I don’t try to battle any other way than emceeing.”

Contrary to rumors on the Internet, the battle is not over Com’s ex-girlfriend Serena Williams. Though Drake was spotted with her following their breakup, Common maintains that it’s all because the Young Money rapper fired back.

“We know that things can get like that, but that’s not what we want for the culture, for ourselves as men. I think we learned enough from those days to be like, OK, if you’re going to challenge me as an artist, an emcee, I’ma let you know who I am.

You just gotta know what you in it for. I got in this because it’s Hip Hop. I was speaking up on the song ‘Sweet’ about, over and over we’re hearing a lot of singing. I listen to R&B, I listen to good R&B and soul music, so I’m not opposed to singing. I’ma be frank about that. But I just spoke up for the art of Hip Hop and what I feel about it, and I want everybody to know that Hip Hop is a diverse culture and it does have that boom bap to it too. Once he said something back, that’s when I said, aight, I guess you want to get in a battle with me. And if that’s what you want, then I’ll battle.”

    Yow dis my 1st tym on da page bt im lovin it,Its for da luv of HIP HOP(Word!!)Keep da Hip Hop culture going srtrong.

  • anonymous

    don't know the politics/history of hip hop or rap.....but common's music makes me pay attention to the words.......not just let it play in the background...PLUS common's voice is just better to listen to :ppffft

  • john casto

    realistically the evolution of hip hop is due to american rappers trying to market globally rather than domestically a lot of other progressed countries in the world (speaking about europe mainly) do not enjoy the hard edginess that old rap was known for, so for artists like drake, kanye, kid cudi, khalifa, they will sell more if they tone it down, its business nothin else

  • DaTruth

    Common started the beef on Sweet- which was aimed at Drake (and he did admit to that). Drake never said stay schemin is about Common, nor has he ever said Common's name. Common's a punk ass for starting it to sell him his album...and then when Drake doesn't respond to the stay schemin' remix, Common says he just did it because he thought he was being targeted by Drake and that he thinks Drake is a talented artist. Are you fuckin kidding me? Common's gonna go and diss drake and ADMIT to it being about drake, and then when drake drops a verse that could or could not be about Common, hes gonna go and do a diss track and say his name THEN say he's talented after? Common's a fake ass pussy that's just trynna sell records. Drake couldn't have said it any better: Back when if a nigga reached, it was for the weapon / Nowadays niggas reach just to sell their record

    Male, 31 here. Grew up listening to Common, also listen to Drake. Common, an MC past his prime who has focused more on other things in his life, is trying to regain mainstream recognition, and attacking a relatively easy target (Drake). As I remember it Common was making some of the softest music in Hip Hop at one point, so I'm not sure that Common should be criticizing others for being soft. My even bigger issue is that Common is being a hater...I see no need to hate on another person's success. Just because Common (or other dudes from his era) didn't sing it doesn't mean that all rappers should be forbidden to do so, uniqueness should be applauded. Hip-hop is evolving. This is the same reason people appreciated and still appreciate Common. I understand what Common is trying to do, but I don't think his intensions come from a positive place. There is room for dudes like Drake and dudes like Common. I guess I was just hoping Common would be beyond the childish bs at this point in his life.

      and also drake is a good raper with good flow if he could talk about somthing real he might even be a legend but it aint real as in hes hanging with a prole officer and a fake blood . and im not some hater i like nicki and birdman i dont like fake dude u can google a rickross pic in officer uniform and lil wayne wears blue. way to much of it for a blood . i know a blood or to they dont play that same as crips dont wear red exsample the only time uve ever seen snoop in alot of red was when he was helping dre show off the headphones and even then he was like idk if i should be wearing this

    Talking about age...

    • random

      Theres a lot of you who would prefer to listen to 90s hip hop. if so, PLEASE CONTINUE TO DO SO, without hating on the new music, because there are many people who enjoy the new music and can find things to appreciate. EVEN while knowing the fact that there are so much more "realer" and more "tru hip hop " out there. is it wrong to listen to common and enjoy it and also bump their heads to music by YMCMB on the same day? WHEN IT ALL BOILS DOWN ITS ABOUT THE MUSIC. you listen to what you like. WITHOUT telling someone else they are ignorant or retarded just because they like music that YOU think is retarded or not "true hip hop" tell me is that right?

    • random

      first of all i think we need to put things in perspective. i like drake but i dont think it was right for him to diss common like that and is getting way too ahead of himself. however, taking commons side and saying that drake is not hiphop and too soft and just a media made rapper is true to an extent but thats just like hearing a "soft" common song and then calling common not real hip hop and too soft. im assuming 90% of the people here havent even heard drakes mixtapes before he got famous. NIGGAS GOT BARS even back then. and he keeps it REAL. yes drake has taken a new direction in his hip hop since his huge fame but hey at least hes being innovative with his music instead of staying in the now prehistoric age of hip hop. WE GOTTA MOVE ON. ITS NOT the 90s ANYMORE Embrace the new music or just DONT listen to it instead of spending your energy HATING on something i dont understand or appreciate. thats like me hating on the beatles cuz their music is too different for someone from my time and saying that they SUCK. nobody wants to hear that especially because its not true. everybody is just doing their own thing. theres just a lotta haters who hate for "x" reasons. stop hating. embrace. also i do agree drake is getting way too bigheaded.

    I SIDE WITH REAL HIP HOP ITS A DISGRACE THAT YOUNG PUNKS AND LIL BITCHES THINK THIS RADIO GARBAGE IS REAL MUSIC EVERYONE MUST B BRAINWASHED.

  • Aziaa

    I was born in '95 so I Guess You all know who im going for with this battle ... Drake ? Nah Common & never did i just hop on common's bandwagon been listenin to em since i was like 12 his best album was "like water for chocolate" he's a real artist his lyrics make sense. NOW WAIT This doesnt mean i just say 'forget' Drake cause I also listen to Drake Take Care was a beautiful album but so many people are going to side with drake simply because he's "IT" right now so to speak and thats what people listen to 9 times out of ten when they turn on their radio they will not hear Common it most likely will be Drake, he's making moves right now but never will I drop an Older artist for a younger one. & with that I'll leave with my young self = )

  • MikeHawk

    emcees be fakin', so now they get taken!

  • MikeHawk

    THE GZA would destroy both these kats. Drake is wack, he ain't hip hop.

  • Nico 3

    Sensaye - All Drake did was act his age, and toute his greatness (back to back platinum albums would swell anybody's head). Lil Wayne and Birdman don't want their meal ticket turning into the next 50 in terms of getting tangled up in pointless diss wars that only make fans and other artists hate you. That would signal the beginning of the end for Drake is obviously #1 right now, so it makes no fucking sense for him to engage Common. Now if Common said something about Wayne or Nicki, then this might actually be fun to watch.

  • Did you hear the track?

    Utterly disrespectful, he went real hard. Grown man status! Eh, let it be known, whats on ur mind. Handle it like adults and see who metaphors are the best. Simply times change but the way it went down isnt right. I mean alot of muthafuckers are jumping on the bandwagon for real. That was the point and as a result we got drake. he do his thang and wit out a doubt the dude got talent. he can spit some hot ish but if his voice was high pitch would it even matter? I guess the same goes for common, the only difference is niggas have to show respect. thats what the hood is missing, common respect. the world is a beast and the devil has surely grasped us. i think about some of the songs i grew up on and think to myself if i make it to old age how the hell am i going to sit in a rocking chair listening to kill that nigga fuck that ho, all tho thats my ish! to each its own. I just know that good music is the way to go, period!!!! Good music started in the park, the essence. just because a nigga rap about his life don't mean its urs. Mufucka's is striagth laced follwers. Eh, i had that MJ glove but dude was a great entertainer with much skill. Its on another level but we need real rap music to thrive. Common kept it real for as long as he's been out and thats been a min. He rarely steps out of charcter but when he does there must be something wrong.

      How do you know 30 year old women aren't buying into drake? Be very careful with age restrictions.

  • Real Talk

    Think about It like this, If Common successfully slaughters Drake, real hip hop can then take presidency in the mainstream market again. So there is clearly a vested interest Commons downfall from major labels that thrive simply because the masses are misinformed on what makes great hip hop. Imagine a market with new rappers that carry production and writing skills on par with ATCQ, Special Ed and Rakim and Eric B. It would break the new world orders spirit, and uplift people.

  • youngster dont kno

    hiphop aint the same at all. u know how u experience something for the first time that is legitamely brand new to the world? That can neva be duplicated. I think Common has a point. You have to look at the roots. Hiphop orbrap music was about battle. Rap music was simply letting niggas know where ur lyrical skillz was at and not ur swag. Some of the songz deez days are gimics. Its the feeling of the real rap thats being lost. There nothing like it my dude. Who the fuck start calling rap gangsta rap. Thats where the ga,e got fucked up. I think Nas was right. You gotta give it to em. Nastradamus

  • they both good artist

    common mad cuase drake smashed his ex! point blank period! wasnt he the same cat in a video holding up signs to a deaf girl sayin how much he loves her...is that hardcore hiphop?? nope....isnt ll cool j i need love a classic?...yep...so hiphop can have variety doesnt always have to be hardcore and when has common ever been known to be hardcore hiphop?

  • Chicago's Finest

    Blah Blah Blah Jonas Brothers this and that.....who's hard who's soft yada yada yada. All it boils down to is Common is a grown ass man and he had to put this young punk in his place EARLY!! Classic Chicago shit!! Everything he said was true about Drake. Common said all he had to say, that's why he gave him a whole 16. Now if Drake makes the stupid mistake of responding, Common got methaphors for day. Plus Common got more respect in the game, experience is one hell of a teacher and Drake doesnt have much. Sorry Toronto, it's a Chicago thing. #runupgetdoneup

  • niether

    ima hip hop baby. the movement was real back in the 90s when rap music was frowned upon by the majority. radio stations only played it on sat nights and nigga jeans werent tight. times change and thats all good. although we cannot forget the essence. common is one of those foot soilder or pioneers that demolished the game to make people pay attention. his swag is unmatched. deez dayz theres no honor and no respect. what can we expect tho? drake is a talented artist in his own right. he seems like a good dude. i understand his movement and nowadays everybody i mean everybody is tony montana. my thing is whats the beef about? i ride wit common cause i cant disrespect the founders. in addition the dude is truly lyrically gifted and a true professional who speaks nothing but truth. he doent exploit the hood and i gotta give it to drake he really doesnt either. drake and common would be an ill teacher student combo.

  • LupeIsTheBest

    Admit, love Drake and Common, not as only artists, both seem like down-to-earth dudes, buuuut Lupe Fiasco would destroy BOTH of them in a battle. When it comes to pure emceeing, Common would win in my book because he is more pure and less destroyed by fame. Bottom line is though, Lupe is the only and only lyrical genius out there who had to be TOLD to put out an album based purely on sales "LASERS". Lupe forever! He should be on GOOD Music label, Kanye would probably let him do want he wants to do, but now I'm ramblingggg CIAO

    You see...the young generation does not know about hip hop masculinity and battling.They grew up with this emo sensitive gay shit so they do not know better.They don't even know about when a d.j. scratches yet alone what a real deejay sounds like?People need to realize that bitches like half the fags on this site (yadig) need to be chin checked cuz they a breed of soft ass suckas for real.How in the fuck do we go from 1990's hip hop to a fucking canadian nickoloden actor who can"t handle disses but can talk like he is the best.Why? Because society now accepts gayness as regular and with that comes rappers like Drake,YMCMB(label),and bitches like this who are soft.These young rappers nowadays do not possess those real mc characteristics.This bitch Drake has the whole industry gassed thinking he is the real,but he is really just a dude singing and rapping.He does have talent but he is fucking hip hop up with this gayass sing a ding a ling fairy shit with a quickness.YMCMB can die in a fucking plane crash for all I care because they are culture vultures who represent everything wrong with shit music.Nikki Minaj is also a stupid little slut who makes horrible music but that is what is music now.Recycled radio maching manufactured garbage.Death to Young Money.Fuck all yall clowns.And all you punk ass fairies who like this shitty music,holla at me cuz i aint afraid to meet up with you bitches just to smack a mutha fucka for fun.Skinny jeans are for girls and bitches!!!Kill em' Common!

Ymcmb, brick squad, ASAP rocky, big sean and them swag head niggas is garbage. And than the niggas with skills yall diss em. I swear yall be on some shit. Hip hop is dead because these kids are telling us skills ain't shit. Swag is everything.

    Jay - Drake won't have to be around in 10 years because the industry is arranged now where you can make 3 or 4 albums, make your money, then branch off to other things, like Common did. Plain and simple, it's about hate. People love to hate. It's part of who they're. To a certain extent it's funny, but considering Drake is only on album number two and people are trashing him goes to show why so many artists take so long in between albums now. Why they're giving "you" less new music.

    "common" I meant comparing Miles Davis to Kenny G. You get the point

  • Johnny

    A lot of you are so ignorant. COMMON IS A HIP HOP PURIST, DRAKE IS A POPULAR RAPPER. It is like common Miles Davis to Kenny G. Or a Steak to Big Mac. Drake is a great industry studio rapper, but common is a pure MC who raps for the hip hop boom bap original culture. The BE album was his flirtation with popular culture. Like NaS'S i AM album. They just proved that they can be platinum popular artist is they chose to be, but true love of the true culture and their consciousness will never allow them to be some fake singing la da da rappers.

    Tycoon - Of course sales mean something. If they didn't, albums wouldn't be made. Released. Reviewed. It's a business, and best believe Common is aware of that. For years, he delivered plenty of product to his fans, and the one's who liked his "soft" music supported it. The problem is when a man who has already been there and done that feels the need to call out another man's talent. Drake may be soft, but apparently soft is working. I bet Common can't name 5 people who hate Drake's music. He's just mad because the luxuries that the music industry can afford someone like Drake today, weren't necessarily afforded to someone like Common.

    • Tycoon

      Any artist can be as "soft" as they want to be, as long as the music is quality stuff. I wasn't saying anything about soft. Drake is just not there when it comes naming great artists. People have just jumped all over his band wagon since mainstream media deemed him as some kind of God MC/Singer, which he is not. Not even close and a lot of people see that. Sales really don't matter in the end when it comes to measuring talent and skill, and Drake does not come close to Common or any of the greats that he questions in some of his music. He is just not up there like he continuously claims and it's about time somebody in the industry said something about it.

    • Jay

      i can tell you are young. Common has been in the rap industry since the early 90's and was true to hip hop even when his city was trying to go with the twistA FLOW rappers. Do you know how many hot rappers have come and gone since the early 90's. Drake is good and hot today, but will be around in 10 years. no. He is not even at the level of those who had hot careers and faded, like hammer, ice, 50, nelly, chingy, juvenile, method man, ja rule, mase,young mc, puff, ll cool j, and the list gos on and on and on. the only relevant rappers from his era are NAS, Jayz, Common- next era- Eminem next era - lil wanye (really only has one good album, but may survive). Out of the new hot 100 rappers, I don't think Drake will survive. Kendrick, and j cole are my picks to be around for a long time. Niki Minaj only has one album and you guys think she is great. Only time will tell. Foxy Brown and lil kim were much larger at their peaks

  • Urkidding

    Let's just compare the record sales. Drake sold more of his new album than all of Common's albums added up. Come on! The listeners of hiphop don't lie. Music is always evolving itself, and Common is trying to stop that evolution by saying that hip hop these days are sweet. He wants hip hop to sound like Tupac and Biggy, but that was over 2 decades ago. This new generation of hip hop is led by artists like Drake, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar. You can't always be stuck in the past, then how would you ever move forward? Common needs to move forward and accept the new sound and feel to hiphop. "that raw Hip Hop sound" is not there anymore and the listeners want more of the "sweet" sounding hiphop, so shut yo old ass up common, this is the younger generation taking your place in the charts.

    • fly james

      you're a dumb ass!! you're comment is bias and stupid. You obviously didn't listen to the interview when common said "Hip Hop is a diverse culture" he knows and acknowledges that hip hop will forever change. all he's saying is we need balance in hip hop. I totally disagree with you saying that "Raw" sound in hip hop isn't there anymore; thats bullshit. it's there, just not all over the "Radio". you just gotta find it. just because a nigga sell 1 million records doesnt make his dope, so that comment was ignorant. no one is stuck in the past, common is an artist that has evolved over the years, do your history kid before you speak about this hip hop. read a book or something. #youngsters!

    • Bigtycoon

      Sales mean nothing, we can compare Drake to Vanilla Ice or MC Hammer, I mean those MC's sucked and sold 10s of millions, and so does Drake. I agree that Hip Hop music is always expanding and growing, but we are talking about authenticity here and Drake has none of that. I'm a Hip Hop listener and I don't want that sweet sound, I love Kendrick Lamar cause he does bring that "Raw" to the table. As in real authentic music. Drake is as made up as Diddy's let's make a band. He's straight up corny and Common was pointing that out.

Lil wayne is definitely incredibly clever with punch lines but come on, dudes like jay z, j cole, common, nas, kendrick lamar etc are all much smarter. DO SOME RESEARCH

    I have nothing against Drake, but to call his music hiphop is a disgrace to real emcees like Common. He's a new skool version of JaRule. For Drake to even come at him sideways on record is a major violation. Common's catalogue alone will go down as 1 of the best in hiphop. What has Drake done besides drop 2 R&B albums??? See where he's at in 10 years, then get back at me. You 90s babies are a sad representation of the hiphop culture....SMH

  • IT'S NOT CHECKERS!!

    Don't forget too, Common has other things to delve into so puttin out a LP is more like a hobby for him=he's already made in the game now. Drake didn't view Luda as worthy enough, he didn't view Pusha T as worthy enough, but now he decides to take his stand on Common??? Anybody but that nigga, you're asking for a lyrical beatdown for real.

  • IT'S NOT CHECKERS!!

    To my HipHop youth: When it's an industrial competition, it's about sales, but when its a HipHop battle it's about skills. There's a huge difference. Can you flow better? Can you flow better than I can under the duress? These are the questions you ask your competetor when you step in the ring. Besides that, if it's a battle- for whatever reason- it's never going to matter how it began as much it would matter who won. Who wins is a majority opinion based upon those questions you should have asked your opponent while in the process of battling. You can't change the way it has been done because you didn't create HipHop, you just live in the fruits of the labors of those pioneers who did, just like me and most of the guys in the comment section. I can't be mad at what you guys like now, but just so you understand that. If Drake isn't built to handle that situation, he should never have dropped the verse he did on Still Skeemin', knowing that there would surely be a response. For this reason, I don't view him as the hero of this generation that everyone seems to think he is, because he took the bait like a straight amatuer. Now he's getting beat at his own subliminal game.

  • common sensical

    Theres always gonna be commercial rap and underground rap. two different styles. But i have to agree Underground rappers need to focus on underground not on mainstream. Especially when it comes to albums in the past 2000 - 2011. There are few gems out there but not as it was in 80's - 90's.

      birdman is older than all of 'em and he's the reason why their music is successful. YMCMB blows. Age is not a factor. I'm 19 and i'm not gonna lie i used to listen to that lil wayne nonsense when i was in 9th grade. Well anyway, once i heard lupe fiasco, there was no way i could go back to listening to that bull. What the ignorant YMCMB fans should do is stop listening to dumb ish. they will for sure be enlightened. some of this mainstream ish is ruining our generation. P.S. lil wayne is not only the dumbest rapper in ymcmb, but also the dumbest in the whole game.

    I agree with some of the old and young peeps on here. We could argue about old school vs. new school all day. If kids think tight jeans are cool, so be it. The only thing that remains consistent no matter how old you are is.... IF YOU ARE A MALE AND BUY DRAKE RECORDS, YOU ARE MOST LIKELY A BITCH and WILL HOPEFULLY COME OUT OF THE CLOSET SO YOU CAN FULLY ENJOY YOUR LIFE!

  • buckeyewu

    Im 37 and listen to anything from Busy Bee to Lil Wayne. I listen to Whodini and Big KRIT. I listen to Ice T and TI. I listen to the Wu and I listen to Slaugherhouse. If anyone closes off a generation of hip hop because your too old, too young, then your not a hip hop head. Your either a kid that only likes todays hot artists or your a middle ager that only wants to release memories of your 20s. This is as dumb as cats in the 90s only liking West Coast rap or East Coast rap. Open your mind people and enjoy the evolution and diversity of hip hop. Al Green came out before i was born, and I love listenting to Al Green. Do you really cutoff any artists that debuted before your were born? Thats sad.

    • hellno

      @Anonymous Yes, SoIcyBoi! is a troll. if you have seen more than 3 posts on this site you would realize that. and @So Icy Boi! if so many people on this site weren't so stupid, everyone would already know you're a troll. And, if you want people to listen to you, you lose all credibility by saying swag. Also, I was born in 1998. All of the Wu-Tang Clan's good group albums and their best solo albums were done before i was born. Tupac and Biggie were already dead. About 99% of the greatest albums ever coming out of hip hop were before my birth. I missed Illmatic, Paid In Full, OB4CL, 36 Chambers, Ready To Die, The Low End Theory, The Chronic, Straight Outta Compton, Criminal Minded, Raising Hell, Me Against The World, Death Certificate, Reasonable Doubt, Aquemini, Liquid Swords, Cypress Hill, License To Ill, Doggystyle, The Score, Breaking Atoms, Looking For The Perfect Beat, Ressurection, Strictly Business, No One Can Do It Better, Critical Beatdown, Midnight Marauders, Long Live The Kane, The Diary, The 7 Day Theory, Mama Said Knock You Out, Paul's Boutique, Whut? Thee Album, Amerikkkas Most Wanted, Ironman, Fear Of A Black Planet, etc. all before I was born. In other words, the average Top 36 hip hop albums a hip hop fan would give you were all before I was born. However, I recognize their greatness, and there is a reason those are considered hip hop's greatest albums as opposed to the Carter 1-4, Take Care, Thank Me Later, Pink Friday, I Am Not A Human Being, Careless World and Rebirth. Most of the albums I buy are used vinyls from the early 90's. It annoys me that my generation's music is so terrible, but among people I know, I have managed to convince many many people that current hip hop is terrible and they should try listening to old school and some of the better underground stuff. Your point makes no sense at all. Who cares? Think about it. The average person over 50 probably enjoys the classic classical music of classical greats. These are artists who were dead before anyone alive today was born. So you were born a couple years after some great albums. So what? Unlike me, you still came in time for a lot of the 90's, with lots more classics coming. Also, what are you even doing on this site if you actually believe what your saying? I would think people who bother to come here are real hip hop fans who don't just listen to what the radio feeds them.

      Its unbelievable that Drake had the nerve to say he killed everyone in the game last year. I mean bragging is not hip-hop. That is completely unacceptable. Common needs to put him in his place and while he's at it, every other MC in the game. Lets make politically-correct hip-hop. Sounds good to me

  • GRKiller

    Common calling out someone for being soft is laughable. Be was an amazing album but had just as many "soft" moments as Take Care. And as a rapper in 2012, Drake has Common beat on skill. I'm an old head, but Common is not the same Common from the 90's and early 2000's.

    Just 'cause drake is "representing" for Toronto, doesn't mean the city is behind him. You'd be surprised at the amount of people not supporting his hype.

      Desiderius, why dont you do the world a favor and shut the fuck up. You sound like a pathetic loser from some pseudo-wanna-be hood Toronto enclave like Scarborough. If your from Toronto and Sheek Louch was shoutin out Drake for props and the dumbass cornball audience - filled no doubt with weird Toronto nerds trying to act like backpackers - were not showing love, that simply reflects the ratio of wanna-be thug losers in Toronto -regardless if people hate or love his music. At the very least, tru headz respect success. And dont worry about the American majors bringing an artist up, Toronto mentality garuntees that respect for an artist is not complete until the "American" industry/media show respect for the artist. This has always been the case. Thats not a compliment, it only reflects lack of self-esteem in Toronto and their pathetic need for validation. If the average audience member from Toronto walked up to Sheek Louch or Ghostface, after the show or on the street, they would think - is this guy gay? Why is this educated nerd who sounds like a Moby-looking nerd from Williamsburg/Manhaatan trying to act street? If Sheek Louch shouted out Drake at Ghostface's show and he heard no one, hollering, he probably thought - "wow, what a bunch disloyal no-pride fucking losers from Toronto. These white college and south-asian educated geeks [90% of the Toronto audience is undoubtely a bunch of nerdy-looking guys, trying to front like they are hard] are some weird motherfuckas. This shit would never happen in Brooklyn/Staten Island because if a brother makes it, changes the game and reps the borough, regardless of his music, we show our support and love because we know how tough it is in this industry. Oh well, I guess these geeky-looking college kids and the few wanna-be thug black nerds here are gay homosexualsk who only respect shit that comes from somewhere else that seems exotic. Man, they have no idea that half the reason, mothafuckas hate Drake is that he is from Toronto period. Ah....Hehe. This city is filled with losers." Keep dreaming that one day some corny wanna-be hood Toronto outfit like Ghetto Concept end up making it and repping Toronto or some other experimental hippy crap like that nerd K-OS. Once real hood folks from the US, see Rexdale, Malvern or Jane-Finch, they will laugh there ass off when these brother try to act all hard, when they look, sound, walk and talk, bougie as hell. Keep dreaming, man - get over it

    there is nothing wrong with a rapper singing!...its just that drake does it 98 percent of the time and expects people to think of him as an mc....not to mention dude is pussy whipped on all his songs and he is trying to act hard when he has a tattoo of a dead singer on his back...smh

  • SuperGucciRap

    This is the hardcore rapper everyone is talking about? HAHAHAHAHAHA common is such a pussy. He just beefs with Drake because he's afraid that nigga will overtake him on the softest rapper crown. Marshallow Rap at its finest. Listen to Real Hardcore hip-Hop like Justin Bieber and Gucci Mane! It's Gucci Time!

  • HSY

    I still dont buy that it aint about Serena. He didnt really dismiss that very succintly. He just kind of avoids it. When you here Common going at him, it sounds personal. It doesnt sound like a battle record, it just sounds personal. In the interview, he sounds chill but the rhymes are scathing and angry, Common has some dope records but Drake is just a better artist all around. The quality of his music is just better (minus TML). I dont get how Drake haters can listen to Drake joints like "Motto", "Say Whats Real", "Underground Kings" and "The Ride" and say that aint just dope hip-hop. If Common was rhyming the same verses over the beats, it would be the dopest shit he ever put out (aside Ressurection) and Ive been listening to hip-hop since Rakim, EPMD etc. The reason why I cant get with the Drake-hate is it aint routed in his music, the criticism is about his background/image.

    • Desiderius

      HSY, shut the fuck up

    • jg

      Drake has better music than Common excluding his shitty debut TML!? thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard. How can you compare the discography of a nigga who oculdnt even craft a quality debut against the 5 solid 5mic albums thats common has recorded?

    • far and wide

      1st off talkin bout rhymes being personal, get real hip hop is competitive and battle is personal but all in spirit of hip hop 2nd you sayin drake is better artist all around that is an OPINION homie and what do you mean by artist ... ok 3rd nobody sayin drake don't make some nice cuts and NO is common was on them beats they wouldnt be the best shit he put out? thats retarded they are both talented artists

    Damn all I see from drake fans is excuses to cover the fact that common is lyricaly superior to him. Let me explain it to mentally retarded. Nobody gives a flying fuck about drakes money, sales, the Bitches he's Fucking none of that. This is lyrical combat only skills matter. I repeat only skills matter. And so far drakes taking a thrashing. Yall just plain fucking dumb. Drake got more more money than kool g rap does that mean he can rip kool g. Fuck naw baby couldn't save his ass then.

Just 'cause he's from our parts, doesn't mean we have to back him up. So please don't confuse the rest of the city with a herb like drake. We actually have a great local hip hop scene, since the late 80s. Look up cats like Mathematik, Citizen Kane and Freedom Writers.

      common put out sweet about bitches like drake and wiz, but wasnt specific though drake got butt hurt cause he knows he is a bitch drake took subliminals at common on stay schemin but didnt say his name cause he is a bitch so common fired back, what dont you understand about that?? drake asked for it son

    • Uhhh ^^^

      yeah he did. the whole reason Common made the stay schemin remix is because Drake responded to Common after he said "Sweet" was a diss to Drake. Look that shit up, you are obviously aren't up to knowledge on this beef but you use, "Hoe Ass Nigga" like your a cool dude.

      no he didnt, but you cant keep telling yourself that if it makes you think of drake as less of a hoe ass nigga

  • lawschool_randi

    Lets be completely honest here, we all know common was talking about drake in that "Sweet" song. He referenced dudes singing and said you "ain't mother fucking frank sinatra", and if you remember, drake did the frank sinatra promo for the mtv awards. Also, what other rapper has gotten shit for singing so much on his records. I am intrigued by this little "beef", but common needs to be real about his reasons for going at drake.

    too bad Common was in Happy Feet 2 and does GAP commercials. The idea that Common isn't "sweet" went out the window once he dropped that techno album with Pharell.

      You spelled career wrong guess that's why your name is science and not english. Or maybe you don't have a career.

    • No

      that won't happen. Not saying sales are indicative of talent but look at the sales of Take Care and look at the sales of The Dreamer/The Believer....theres a pretty huge difference. I don't think Common is going to end Drake's career anytime soon. Even if Drake takes the bait and beefs with him, it won't hurt him in the long run.

    COMMON'S A FUCKING LIAR HE KNOW THAT SWEET RECORD IS ABOUT NOBODY BUT DRAKE CAUSE HE EVEN SAMPLED DRAKES MARVIN'S ROOM AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE SONG GO LISTEN TO IT IF YOU THINK I'M LYING, AND ANOTHER THING OF COURSE DRAKE WON'T WET NOBODY BUT NETHER WILL COMMON'S TURTLE NECK WEARING ASS SO WHAT POINTS HE GET FOR SAYIN THAT?

    Damn, seeing these comments the fans of DRAKE are battling COMMON better than he is !! DRAKE fans should want him to go at COMMON to protect his name and maintain a career. If he was to battle COMMON and come out alive, that can be one of the best testaments of his career !! DRAKE fans shouldn't be this PUSSY !! Your record sales don't mean shit when someone calls you out !! If that was the case, we wouldn't have heard any battle rebuttals from LL Cool J because he's been Platinum the majority of his career and sold more than all of his competitors at the time of the conflict. This isn't 2PAC vs BIGGIE, this is Eminem vs EVERLAST.

      It don't work like that my friend. In hip hop, if you call somebody out, it's handled. Drake and Common are both indeed great artists but when it's on, it's on. People who are debating, that the natural effect of conflict, of any sort e.g, Jordan v Clyde, Mayweather v Pacquiao, Ali v Frazier, Obama v McCain

  • Logic

    I never understood how a fan could argue for a rapper making more money than the one he beefing with. Fans talk money like its their bank account. Relax and judge rap beef on lyricism then decide who won. Thankfully Common didn't go cry on twitter or bitch to an interviewer. Rappers got problems, RAP ABOUT THEM.

Common should know better than to pull this bullshit for no reason. He's obviously mad at the younger nigga for getting his girl and getting paper.

    thing about hip hop is it was surposed to uplift ppl who arent doing too well thats what it was about .but they let the wrong rappers in and they started up lifting ppl who are allready doing well.we shouldent depend on music to make us feel better.but if you see certian ppl up lift those who are allready good insted of giving energy to those who are doing bad.then it becomes a worse struggle for those who are doing bad.like when i listen too nas,red and meth,common,i feel this sence of help. nas common red and meth could easy say u kno what im rich imma sit back and live. but kno they kept helping.like they used their big names to make others happy by going to places and giving that energy.thats what its about.dmx might been on drugs but he went 3 x plat 3 times and was still among the ppl,joe budden went gold hes with shady he still talks to fans threw the web. its about help."and this is too some rappers. showing your bank account isent helping unless u gonna give them sum..ppl find them selfs danceing to a rich mans beat who doesnt give a fuc.

    I'm a massive fan of both. I got Take Care and The Dreamer / The Believer. Common is making the same music just getting people to sing his hooks. Drake sings his own. It's a pointless beef. They should just collaborate for the culture. Also 'Sweet' is the only hard record on The Dreamer / The Believer but it's still a classic.

    • dockevoc

      Collaborate for the culture? The whole point of the beef is that singing ass faggots are taking hip hop to a place that makes it's founders and loyal fans sick. The 'culture' wants Drake to go away not collaborate with it's own legends.

If you like that punchline/witty rap that's cool but Common got Drake anyday. The only thing Drake can say is that he makes more money and has bitches.... That's shallow shit and that's mainly Common's point. At least Drake is real to himself that he only raps about what he knows but we need to get that diversity of music where it's not all money driven and talking about hoes, rides, and cars... I want to see this battle happen! This is a test for Drake to see if he's a legit MC. I wanna see Drake respond. He needs to instead of trying to have his entourage vouch for him!

Since when is a 25 year old not a grown ass man? One verse off "Like Water for Chocolate" trumps Drake's whole career. And that album was boasting ill J. Dilla joints. What you Drake fans know about J. Dilla?!

    Isn't this exactly what he said about Ice Cube and he ended his career.

  • HAHA

    alot of you are but hurt fags.hip hop has always been about the battle.if you cant handle it why listen.you sound like of a bunch of bitches tell drake to waive that white flag becuase common just hit him with a light tap you got to understand this is gonna be fun for him.common gonna clown the shit out of AUBREY!!!!!wheel chair jimmy haha

  • AL

    This is pretty much the LL Cool J & Canibus beef all over again. LL Cool J being Drake and Canibus being Common. Drake is going to win this battle because all the dick riders he's got. Common will lose this even though he has been lyrically killing Drake these past two weeks. Props to Common for trying though, but Drake is too popular.

    • Anonymous

      Only reason why people thought LL won was because he had the star power. Other than that, get the fuck outta here.

    • Drakes not going to reply, thats what he pays YESSIR for!

      More like KRS 1 vs Nelly, cause drakes going to be having financial problems in a few years. Baby probably takes 80% of his money, slaps him on the ass and tells him to be happy with the 20%. You heard It from me first!

      100%. Teenagers dont know enough about hip hop to hurt Drakes career. They will listen to anything he puts out even if its the definition of trash.

      LL Killed Canibus Though! What Battle You Was Paying Attention To? LL Is Common, Canibus Is Drake Because Drake Is A Dick Rider The Way Canibus Was

  • jhuntdaprodigy

    Common's battling for attention, not for hip-hop, and his album still has barely touched 100k. Who cares if Drake sings? If Common wants "boom bap" then listen to niggas who do that shit, don't try to call out Drizzy for it, especially when you be with niggas like Cudi, and even Ye dropped an album doing all singing. Of course Drake said something, cause you went out and said the song was about him. Common started this shit, and he knows he did

      drake fucks with justin bieber so whats your point?

      COMMON IS A BITCH ASS NIGGA. HE MADE A SONG WITH THE JONAS BROTHERS. THE FUCKING JONAS BROTHERS. if that isnt a bitch ass emcee than i dont know what is

      You keep bringing up sales when it has nothing to do with this. Learn to read and quit jocking this lame rapper. When has Common cared about sales. Drake is the one who caught feelings, Common responded. it's that simple dude has more money then Drake so why does he care about sales. Only 16 year old girls and weak dudes base music off of sales.

    • left over scraps

      first week sales dont mean shit plenty of albums dont sale alot in the first week but do big numbers.actually rap sales are down now.when the massacare went platinum in 4 days it did over 10mil worlldwide.jay-z highest first week was for kingdomecome 600k and he is a multi platinum artist.the days of rappers doing big numbers are over but its a good thing now skills get to shine even more.Adele first week like 300k she sold 17mil worldwide.

      Point out a line where Common specifically called out Drake in "Sweet". Matter of fact, doesn't Drake have a bar in "Headlines" about soap opera niggas sounding like his children? Face it. Drake overrreacted, got hurt because Common didn't apologize because Drake put himself in that category, then had the nerve to drop subliminals.

  • Anonymous

    Common is a Real MC point blank period VS that MTV pop culture kid, a commercial package sold off as flagship for new generation of rap

  • Anonymous

    Was he with Serena at Starbucks and her phone had a Drake ringtone? You can say you prefer the R&B of old, or want a harder sound, but to point your finger at somebody, then say you were just speaking in general, is a lie and a coward move. Drake should just do what Jay does when people get bored and look to create beef... Nothing.

    • That Guy

      Point to a line in "Sweet" where he said Drake's name. In fact doesn't Drake have some bar about a bunch of soap opera niggas sounding like him? That only shows where Com's coming from further. Com's not gon' apologize because Drake chose to identify with the song. These are grown men. If Drake chooses to put himself in that category, who's fault is that? When a cat tries changing their statement, they are backpeddling. When they stand by their statements...their cowards or want publicity? You can't win with rap fans.

  • Anonymous

    Drake is just Mad because Common is a talented MC who writes his own shit, can freestyle pretty well and is respected in his community.

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    Battling (aka beef for you young cats)is part of the hip hop culture. Only the strong survive and careers can end. Common is a lyrical beast so Drake better come with it. All I'm saying is that you can't let another man call you "Sweet" or "bitch" on wax and not respond lol.

  • Big Dan

    Okay, I'm not getting this. Used to be a Common fan because I thought he was one of the smarter ones in hip hop, who left the ghetto mess out of the music, but he let me down here. Going after someone who has not done anything to you over their music, is complete BS and it makes you softer than he is, regardless of how soft he maybe. Does Drake need to get Ice Cube on a track to remind you why the beef thing is not a good move for you. You gangsta now? Mr. incense burning, Erika Badu loving, hippie weirdo? Not a Drake fan, he is soft and the music does nothing for me, but Common is just looking for attention here.

    • Big Dan

      Y'all are right. Some people don't read! Common released "Sweet." He has since said yes, it was pointed at Drake. So he started it. And really, who else is singing and being sweet in hip hop right now. Drake's the only one that comes to mind. So Common started it. Coincidentally, he and Drake are chasing the same tail. Common y'all. The funny thing is, Common was never a hard rapper and he is out there trying to out soft rappers?!? Does that make sense? Again I liked him because I though he was one of the smarter ones out there, but his flow is the same, he never switches up, can't, and he is no position to be knocking anybody, especially since with his 20 years in the game, he just came out and did 20k the first week and Drake did 32 times that a couple weeks earlier. Y'all don't think that would make him mad, to see someone you think you are better than mopping the floor with you sales wise? He needs to go back to the Common we all respect. A few months ago, he was invited to the WH and the racists at Fox where yapping that thugs and gangstas (funny ha ha) where now being brought in to the WH by Obama. He needs to stop now so he doesn't prove them right.

    • SWAG

      @BigDan your a dumb bitch common killed drake because drake tried opening his mouth about a veteran and common murked his shit

    • And

      And stay relevant? Com has 20 years in the game (Everyone knows who he is, even if they only know a few songs because they don't follow him) and has done various movies and TV shows. He's paid too. Stay relevant? LMAO.

    • Seriously?

      Did you even read the article, or just the headlines? Drake did do something over his music "with Stay Schemin" and before that, in his concert when Drake acted all hardcore "SAY IT TO MAH FACEEE!!" You know how this started? Common was talking in general and if the shoe fits (doesn't Drake have a song about soap opera niggas sounding like him?) Drake took offense for no reason (Common has called him talented) and Common didn't back down from his original statement. Drake's a grown man so Com ain't gon apologize. Drake felt in that category over stupid rumors and that's on him. Then "Stay Schemin" happened. Not a good move? Majority of people think Common killed Cube, and a lot of people respected him more because the uplifting rapper stood up to someone like Ice Cube. I swear some people don't READ.

      did you not read the article? DRAKE STARTED THAT SHIT sweet wasnt about drake particularly but the shoe fit

    Dear Common: We don't need you battling for us. We all know this was over Serena and you are struggling to stay relevent. (69k copies first week?) Thanks and bye

      smh Common isn't THAT soft.. he did soft shit, so what. so did Jay. so did fuckin' Nas. Common starred in action movies, shoot em ups, all that shit and he looked LEGIT doing it. He's soft, but not that soft. only action Drake had of that sort was getting shot on a TV show and put on a wheelchair lol.
