Drake Says He Won't Respond To Common Diss, Is Recording New Music

After Common said the beef was over, Drizzy says he won't entertain the battle in the future.

Common recently said that he is ready to move on from the beef with Drake, to which Drizzy has finally broken his silence. On the set of the video for “The Motto” with The Weeknd, Nah Right’s Nation spoke with the Young Money rapper who said he wouldn’t record another diss track towards Com and said that he used the beef to promote his latest album, The Dreamer, The Believer.

“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,” he said. “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.”

Additionally, Drake said that he plans to tour through 2012 and has already begun recording new music.

“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.”

    Wise to bail out, you not ready, the only way you'll be ready is to re-event NO MORE SINGING ON SONGS, UNLESS YOU DROP AND ALL RNB ALBUM,start talking about real shit, Hey the occasional Chic song is cool, but to have 89% of you ALBUM on this, And still claim hip hop elite, Can't do it.Give you and examples, LL cool,Jay Z, COMMON SENSE(lol), God Bless They Souls Heavy D, Biggie, Pac, and Pun and etc. Basically all of them had huge songs that made money for sales from singles that was aimed at female buyers, but all these artist had other song that touched on everything else in between, from raw flows,To topics, This are artiest that will always fall in the best that ever did it category because the knew how to switch it up. Until Drake can find a balance He will always just be Canadian Bacon, Simply pork, the garden variety Wolf Ticket.

    it's obvious, drake don't want no problem wit common.....lol - drake's lyrics ain't battle ready.

  • Uhhhh

    This shit is Wack... Just get 50 and Game back together so they can start makin huge amounts of money again, just say "fuck the bullshit" and get back to being relevant, thats all they got! Common: Poetic Mind Speaking Hip Hop Drake: Experimental Lovestory Hip Hop DONE.

  • Fukouttahere

    Yo I would be cool with Drake if he stopped acting like people beef with him for no reason, he throws mad rocks talks greasy in mad interviews and then when he gets dissed he acts all innocent, nah u just soft homie, u handle ur shit like bitches do.

  • ramses

    the reason why i dont ride with self rightous cowards like common is because he post 2 been came at niggaz like jeezy , ti shorty lo etc a long time ago if he want people to understand where he tryin 2 come from now ,, its like kanye ,,had he would of took an award out jeezy , ti , gucci or any of these other niggaz who deserved it ,, then i may would have tried to understand where he was cooming from ,,, fuck all these cowards ,, an drake killin on that club paradise ,, total classic

  • daviddanielz

    Ayo! It doesn't matter who he knows, who wanted to sign him, who he did songs with. That all goes out the window when you see how his career played out these last couple of months. All he has done is prove he's a corny dude and Luda & Common showed that. Sorry kids, your dude lost more then just a rap battle, he lost respect from the hiphop culture.

  • king

    Ay there's two mean tht should always be respected for their vision j.prince & eazy-e these two are in my opinion the greatest hip-hop artist recruiters ever they don't fuck wit bullshit Wat I'm tryna say is if Drake was garbage j.prince wouldn't of fuucked wit em Side note: I jst learned easy signed will.I.am b4 he died ....EAZY HAD MONEY VISION

  • Nico 3

    One site said his salary was estimated at 8 million. Considering he's in most films for about 5 minutes, I find that very hard to believe. I'm guessing he got the most for that Queen Latifah movie, but most established actors are lucky to make 5 mill. You mean to tell me this shit ass bit player is making more than say Don Cheadle?

    • daviddanielz

      (((((eazy:))))) You have no idea about hiphop! Being young doesn't give you the right to make stupid statements like that.

      Ay y do y'all hate Drake I mean yea he soft but he real and by real. I don't mean gangsta I mean he don't try to be something he not like Ross Y'all say he pop and rnb like its a bad thing don't y'all kno wat hiphop is its a mixture of every different element of music Thts y it can't contained so don't limit it I think y'all look down on Drake bcuz he not Hood but the nigga from degrassi if he came out tryna b Hood his shyt woulda flopped I like Drake cuz he original and he real . Ross ain't the only fake rapper out there IF U GROWN THEN U KNO THT 99.9999% OF THESE RAPPERS R JUS LIK ROSS FAKE THEY ALL FOLLOWING THE BLUEPRINT AND AINT TALKING BOUT JAY BUT HE INCLUDED THEY ALL WANTA B PAC AND BIGGIE.

    Damn and I thought Common would put an end to Drake's career with this battle. But I guess Drake just did it by himself with this bitch ass statement. I still don't understand why Drake is saying that Common did this for album sales as if he knew that Drake was gonna take sweet personally and respond. I would have respected Drake more if he just told the truth......He is obviously scared.

  • Ghost of Nat Turner

    Drake lost. Drake took subliminals and wrote a verse goin at Common, then Common responded and Drake got scared. Drake too scared to take it further, forget the excuses.

  • daviddanielz

    Okay clearly the Common hatters slash Drake fans have a lot to say about Common. Directly or indirectly. Lets be clear, Common has never done hiphop for the money. Money isn't the issue, hiphop is the issue and if you can't see that then your not into the hiphop culture. In which point I rather not get into a depate with you because you lack real knowledge of the hiphop culture and you clearly wont understand any of it.. Yes Common is labeled at times a conscious MC but what that really means is he uplifts his people and the culture and also protects it from people who damage it or act fake. A conscious MC talks about political, social, uplifting messages, and speaks from the heart and for the people. Yes Drake sold a lot of albums but his fan base is young kids and women. Which isn't a bad thing but it doesn't make what he has done worth respecting. Yes, he sold a lot of albums but they were based on pop hiphop and r&b. Do you really think he's real hiphop? Can he freestyle? Does he have what it takes to battle rap? Do real hiphop artist respect his movement? Does the culture of hiphop respect him? The answer to all of those questions is a clear no. He isn't built for the hiphop culture, he's built for pop hiphop. Like Ja Rule and Nelly before him. They all sold a lot of money, had a lot of radio play, and became the "rapper of the moment" but they were moved aside when that trend was over. Bottom line is, enjoy him while you can. I have a feeling he wont be around in 4 years. ps: His next move is to record all hiphop tracks so he gets his street cred back but its too late. People know he's a corny dude. Second, the websites and radio personalties will try and make it a big deal that Drake is rapping again. It still wont work.

    • Mr. Awesome

      I agree to many of the things you say but I disagree with others. "Can he freestyle?" MOST rappers are garbage as hell @ freestylin' (if by freestyle you mean rappin' off the top). Drake prolly can't freestyle for shit, but Common isn't that nice with freestyles himself. However, Big Daddy Kane himself admitted that freestyling, back in the day, was NOT off the top. Freestyling would be rappers getting into a cypher and spitting written rhymes that had not previously been heard before, which is what most of these mixtapes/radio "freestyles" are. You will rarely hear industry rappers spit off the top freestyles. As for whether or not Drake will still be around remains to be seen. Only time will tell. Most people would have written Weezy off as just another rapper, but look @ him now. Never count any rapper out 'cause you might be surprised....

      CO- mutha fukin SIGN!!!!!! Great post!

  • Yappa Rappa

    If Drake wanted to take the high and mighty road why didn't he take his own advice before he recorded the stay schemin' track the first time.? Now that he knows its not a game, and realize the breadth of the matter and how he would get slaughtered if he ever dared say something again, he switches it up. I want to think this beef is staged..but it's just too goddamn messy. And those barbs Common threw stung me even. Ouch! Still, well played though. There is really NOTHING else Drake could do without taking further loses. Believe that he will suffer a little for not giving the fans what they want. Some good things that came outta this though... 1.Now he knows he's not invulnerable with his subliminal tossing and needs to back it up. 2. He can put a brake on the hood shit as if he ever does it again he will make himself look a fucking fool. (Thus proving common even more right) 2. Know that he will only have the King title by making phenomenal music instead of agitating the GODS by petty-poking them. " See I even put bullet points so you can read it bitch! " Common didn't damage his legacy, he cemented it by saying what was on everyone elses minds. #CanadaDry Now drake can go concentrate on making music which he is very talented at, and quit the bullshit. Everyone wins! LOL!

    Drake ain't going anywhere, but he's most likely going to cut down on the bragging raps and make more of the singing "Take Care" music. He should go with Ne-Yo over to Motown and start fresh.

      Uh... Technically he was already with Motown before the whole Universal Music restructuring, so it wouldn't exactly be a fresh start lol

  • daviddanielz

    Come on Drake fans, you have to admit he's looking really soft. So your telling me its okay to go at Lil Kim about dissing Nicki but its not okay for Common to respond back at him directly? It's okay to throw shots without saying names but it's not okay for Common to throw shots without saying names? So let me get this straight, Common who is true hiphop can not do the same because he doesn't sell albums like majority of all pop acts? Lets be clear, Common has more of a right to do and say what he wants more then Drake. Drake is either clueless or straight up lying. He either doesn't know the culture of hiphop or he cheats it like Rick Ross. Regardless, like Ja Rule and Nelly. His time will come and go and he will wonder why people don't like him.

    Common for real shit Drake for catchy shit common for song writting Drake for ummmm something lol Common for subject matter(the fact he has more to talk bout than money n girls obviously) drake for RnB shit

  • Nico 3

    Common hasn't made 63 million off movies lol He's a bit player in movies, for which I'm sure he's still been paid well. What holds him back is he can't act. Fence posts have more emotion.

    We dont kno none of these niggas personally so im just speakin music. Common will probably never sell as much as Drake because he will Never sell out. He is like hip hops Malcolm X...4 da ppl...Drake, Is signed wit Young Money((dont pay the people-lol))..I also think that musically common isn't a "hard" rapper...i would venture far enough to say that he was like a Drake of his time..due to the increase of pop culture and gayness into hip hop, i feel thats a fair statement. Drake's problem is that he is a "Rapper" that makes RNB music..If he kept it hip hop, i would have a totally different view of him..u can rap about broads without cryin. lol i'm from ohio and i heard drake spit before i heard him sing or seen him act..he was nice..and still is..he just need to stick to rap and he'll b aight. "Sweet" had to be at least a little about drake, who else is singin out there worth mentionin..? Tpain? Weezy? Snoop? lol he coulda been talkin bout "How To Love"

    • hip hop is my drug

      I almost can 100% co-sign this... I always say Common is the Malcolm X of hip hop and I'm happy you see that too. I don't agree with Common being the Drake of the 90's tho. I would rather say he is the Lupe Fiasco of this generation, socially aware.

  • Anonymous

    For someone who had such promise after his mixtapes, it is truly sad to see him go down like this. I REALLY thought he was the savior of a hip hop drought. We all did. Ya'll call us haters but I honestly think people are disappointed. Even you Drake fans have to admit that Drake has not been the same since he signed with Young Money and I am sure he is being pressured by Wayne to make music that he can make money off of. Still I have an alliance with real hip hop and I can say that I do not respect the music that he is doing and the actions that he is taking as a HIp Hop artist. This is hip hop and you Drake fans can be mad at Common all you want but, Common openly gave Drake the opportunity to prove himself to real hip hop heads, and he failed. You Drake fans will not be the ones to determine if Drake will be one of the greatest of all time. The real hip hop community will! After this I have lost all respect for Drake.

    Why is it that every time Drake gets involved in beef that actually has to do with him, he has nothing to say? Yet, he has shit to say about Kim and Nicki's beef, Kobe's beef, a tattoo artist (Which had nothing to do with him! That chick has the free will to do whatever she wants to her own body and the tattoo artist was doing his job). SMH. This kid is embarrassing himself big time.

  • keith

    Remember Mase the rapper, he was signed to Bad Boy when the was great and sold records, If drake was signed to someone else he would not be selling.

  • keith

    This is a stupid conversation based on the fact that if drake was signed to BadBoy Records would all you Wayne dick riders be saying he is a good MC, the answer is hell no. You cant define a rapper based on who he hangs with or is signed to, If drake is around in 10 years then lets talk and as for common he has made millions off of movies so those two should never been mentioned in same sentence.

  • 2 cents

    firstly... stop feeding the Trolls. If you've read more than two words of a icyboi/yessir post, you must be new to the internet. ok once and for all, Common is pissed about Serena. This is a simple fact. That doesnt make his shots on wax any less valid. Some of the greatest hip-hop beefs had a chick central to it. Ask Faith or Carmen. Common feels like he's got dibs on Serena. Wifey. i've personally seen them together backstage at a Kanye show in 07. Looked like love from where i was standing(Common /Concequence/Kanye killed it btw). Drake has prolly smashed an untold amount of chicks recently... but he made the Serena shit public. Photos of her on "leaked" to Mediatakeout, that could only have been taken by him. Exposing it. Common knows Drake aint trying to keep Serena... he's pissed cus he flaunted it. Thats why this shit is actually deeper than rap. I'm sorry for Drake fans (myself included) anyone who caught the wave before So far gone should be rooting for the kid. The majority of his lyrical content are his feelings. Thats his greatest strength. But when his head is gassed and he's feeling like a douchebag... he's STILL making music! So the thing that makes him great becomes his greatest flaw. Truthfully i just think he needed to fight this battle. For his integrity, for hip-hop, for his City (which besides money, is all he cares about apparently), shit! he needs to dedicate at least 2 bars for his Pops!! it's been a cold winter for Drizzy. BigGhostFace The Tattoo Artist Pusha - T?? Luda Common Handle your business my dude.

  • Hudes

    Drake is what is called a "one dimensional emcee" (if you can even call him an emcee) If you can prove me wrong. Please do An artist - especially a hip hop one has to have range of topics Does drake tell stories? Nope. Does drake uplift his people? Nope Does drake have any other concept for a song other than crying over women? Maybe the odd song but for most part. Nope. What makes this dude an artist? Having 30 identical songs? I'm not even fully explaining myself due to the fact I'm working But damn. Have you kids ever heard Undying Love by Nas? That's a story great concept great rhyming great song All I hear is the same song over and over again with different beats when it comes to drake. These rappers have one formula. It's shamefull

    • AP

      @Hudes....Your underestimating Drake. He is a good storyteller, he may not switch up subject matter much but that's because he only raps about what he knows. For instance, I felt every word on "Marvin's Room" because I've there. I didn't listen to Drake at first so im not one of his dickriders. Dude is quite crafty actually.

    • Hudes

      Fuck UMC. The dude made Like Water for Chocolate. He got songs with premier that have changed people by listening to them. Every artist is gonna do some experimenting. As long as he can still prove his talent, we give him a pass on that one Most of nas street disciple album was trash but he's still the best emcee in the game. A true poet. kanye 808 was Autotune, a whole different genre than what he used to do, but we gave him a pass cause he came back and killed it. Kanye also a poet. (no where near my favorite. Just using examples) Drake has had 2 CDs they seem to be very similar. And 75% of the album ain't hip hop, so what can that tell you? He's a singer who sometimes ventures into rapping Only problem is. He thinks he is the best to do it. When he doesn't realize he's missing main elements of being an emcee. Fuck, my 9 year old cousin listens to drake. It's simple enough for lil squirt to get it... If drake make music that made me think, I'd have more respect it a bit more YADIG? YESSIR!!!

      Anon pretty much said it. lol. Common makes real actor money, he's on a TV show right now on AMC. He's been in plenty of hit movies too and they keep coming. All I'm saying is, for Drake to say someone more rich is putting on a publicity stunt for attention, money, etc is dumb. Drake doesn't have to fire back, it's his choice regardless of anyone's opinion even thought that's bull because he kind of did already, maybe Com was in the wrong, maybe not, but to make Com seem like someone akin to say Canibus is really stupid and a poor excuse.

  • Iamrealhiphop

    The funniest part about this rap beef is Drake pretty much threatens to body Common saying shit like "You're like the finish line, we can't wait to run in to you, " (I'm guessing when he says "we" he is talking about YMCMB b/c we all know his boys from toronto aren't gonna do shit b/c 1: they are sweet as fuck. 2: Their asses will get deported if they try shit). And then in that same week Tyga is making a cameo in Common's "Celebrate" video, and Mannie Fresh is photographed in the studio with Common. Bwahahahhahaaaa YMCMB do't wanna fuck with Common.

      I've lived in NYC, Atlanta and Toronto. There is some truth to the idea that Toronto hoods aint as rough as US hoods but that dont mean its all white picket fences. Violent crime, particularly gun-violence, is lower in Canada but non-violent crime is not much different than the USA. In fact, Id argue Toronto is less polarized than the USA so what you end up with is a middle and upper-class folks with more street smarts and poor kids with more understanding of both worlds. In the USA, people are either street or straight-bougie and sheltered. In Toronto, the environment is more open and accessible to everyone so even nerdy dudes have seen their share of fist-fights, drug dealing etc. I can actually say that I know that drug use/dealing is way more rampant in Toronto than in the USA, it is just not viewed as a big deal like in the USA. Smoking weed, buying drugs and doing blow in restuarants is given alot more of a blind-eye in Canada whereas in the USA, such experiences are liable to be treated as "street" or "criminal". In the USA, often what is designated as "street" is just more mainstream in someways in Toronto whereas in the USA,if you grow up in certain neighborhoods you are completely sheltered and protected from everything. Thats the difference. There is less gun-violence in Toronto but there are more fist-fights, drug use, drug dealing treated as no big deal in the city. Plus in general, becuase of the stronger West-Indian culture, Toronto dudes have a different mind-set, more aligned with New York than the South so this is why it might black dudes are acting "hard". Its just a cultural difference sometimes.

      Toronto is a bunch of posers who glamorize the thug life but have no hoods and that is the truth. You guys have people talking about the struggle as if you live in the US.

      What you tryna say now Toronto cats are hard? Toronto is the safest place to live in this world. Drakes boys act like they live in the fucking hood when Toronto has 3% crime rate. Compare that to Detroit's 33% dumb ass. Anyone who knows Common knows that he is an undercover G! Compare Drakes and Commons criminal record and then you an come and talk to me. I'm not even gonna sit here and try and say that Common deserves some sort of reward for even having a criminal record b/c lets face it we don't need anymore black men in jail. I commend Common for getting his act together and now he can be a positive role model for young black men. Common IS some one to be feared lyrically and that was my fucking point. I'm not saying that he is gonna body anyone physically. Even he said that the is not what he is about anymore and for your information, Common FUCKED up Cube and his whole crew in the 90s so I don't know where you got your info from.

    Drake Is An Entertainer Damn I Said It Gosh

  • Iamrealhiphop

    The funniest parts about this diss is 1: Drake is stating that Common is doing this for album sales when in fact Drake technically dissed Common first. "Sweet" was NOT meant for him and could have been directed to a number of rappers. Common has NEVER done publicity stunt shit for album sales in his entire career as an artist. He is on that Movie money. Record money is chump change......2: His verse on "Stay Scheming" was short and to the point. It wasn't the greatest verse he has ever don in his life. He was just warming up and still Drake couldn't think of a response to come back with. Lost all of the respect that I had for Drake and I am SURE many other fans who were on the fence with him has lost respect too.

      wow really so drake won the BEEF coz his album sold more so the fact that common had the better verse than drakes ment nothing u fucking kids are so stupid so the next beef i wont bother to look at what each artist said ill just look at album sales SMH

    • REal Talk

      @anonymous WTF are u talking about???? what consequences is Drake Suffering, and album sales do mean something dumb fuck, this is the sport of hip hop its all about sales thats their championship,u saying that album sales don't mean nothing is like saying Michael Jordan has no rings but he has a shoe deal, fuck the shoe deal (in commons case fuck the movies in cuz were talking about hip hop here) so Drake won, cuz 1.3 million people care what drake has to say then 100k fans who bought common cd, lol and how is the youth being fooled by liking Drake, HAHAHA your a fucking Lame Nigga change your tampon before u bleed everywhere, and BTW "Sweet" was directed to Drake check commons interview with the breakfast club, that nigga was mad cuz serena was fucking with Drake, OVOXO

    • Anonymous

      I don't fucking respect him...do something! Common NEVER fell off b/c he is still here providing a voice for true hip hop fans dumbass. Falling off is what young berg, Mase, and Ja rule did. No one gives a fuck about what they have to say. But obviously you and EVERYONE gives a shit about what Common has to say. Drakes beef with Luda didn't even get much attention but as soon as Common speaks it a big deal. You don't wanna get dissed by Common! Drake made a major mistake and now he has to suffer the consequences. YOu kids are so fucking stupid and thats why these new artist target your dumb asses b/c you are so easy to fool.

    • Bizzy

      I think drake is still a great artist. common does his thing but he fell off a long time ago and now he's hatin. You never made a record in your life or have done anything in music so shut your mouth and give respect.

    What Drake said is 1 hunnit. Common is a legend in hip hop , and it was pointless battle, it was kinda corny. i love common but Drake just honest

    • ^

      Lol to the nigga on top of me, you post sounds like you are really excited, you don't know shit y Drake didn't respond to Luda, you can only spectate, let me ask you something, what happened when Ice Cube came at Common for being "Sweet" you act like common be walking around with Guns in shit

    • Anonymous

      Exactly! Why didn't he respond to Luda? Luda made an entire song dissing his ass, and Drake did nothing. Drake likes to prey on people that he think he can beat and didn't want to fuck with Luda. On the surface, Drake probably thought that Luda was harder then Common. But Mr. Canada Dry didn't do his research on Common before he decided to come at him. Common is an under cover G. Most people don't know his history b/c he has cleaned up his act so much in the last 10 yrs. Drake fucked with Common and Common left the building and Common Sense or Rashid came storming in. I don't know which one is worse. But He made Drake look life a fool. He should have came at Luda. That would have been a safer choice.

  • room2roam

    to end this shyt drake is not a hip hop artist, he's an artist that happens to be able to rap. drake came in the game off of the so far gone mixtape (i know he did other mixtapes prior but thats th eone that blew) so i dont understand all these hip hop heads hating this dude for making rnb music. thats what he does. thats what he's always done. i think the problem is whne he does rap he's better than a lot of so-called good rappers and u n1ggas hate it bc he also does the rnb and alternative stuff but imo thats just crabs in a barrel thinking. ill always support drake as long as he stays true to himself which i think he's done/is doing... shout out to common too. i dont really listen to his music but much respect. all the hate is gnorant and childish. its clear u ni1ggas are interested in the dude. if dx posts a new song by him right now it's have over 100 comments in no time. so either u just coming to his posts to hate or you like him and dont want to admit it...

    • rhymes4days

      Yeah but no....I understand your point about the whole style of music drake came up with but prior to so far gone his buzz was still pretty strong and he was in fact rapping...and rapping well. Not to mention he came up battling local dudes in canada so the whole R&b argument is a bit flawed...Whil i respect him musically and what he does... the nigga has made comments about being a great rapper...he calls himself hiphop...he breathed life into the game, and he made hip hop hot again yadda yadda...these are all statements drake has made on and off a record.. so with that said for someone to challenge his rap skills and him not really respond is kinda bitch to me. Not to mention his excuse is lame...you CANT claim to be runnin rap and shit like that ie; "Its Whatever if somebody wanna make it a thing"- Drake on Lord Knows and then a nigga challenge you and you find the most strategic way to NOT respond and then cop out and say we all was fans of common etc. THATS BITCH to me...if somebody punch me in the face the reason WHY they punched me in the face is at that point irrelevant...the nigga got punched in the face and now is on some shit like oh well he punched me cuz he wanted to make a name for himself or sell a record or whatever...yeah but so what...nigga you supposed to run rap and all that and be bout that life...smh this shit is whack

  • BONKEIRA

    This beef is vegetarian. I give no credit to Common for starting a beef with a pussy like Drake. Rappers beefing with RNB artists is soft. He might as well go punch out a 10 year old for his lunch money but remember one thing, all you Drake fans are still faggots

  • TO THE CLOWNS

    All you busters out there acting like Common is some "real hip hop" shit need to re-listen to "Universal Mind Control" and his pathetic attempt at trying to cross-over. Common sold out with "The Light". UMC was straight-up Ke$ha-inspired pop music. He was trying to become pop but failed miserably. Plus homeboy has even made tracks with the Jonas Bros. Whats more pop than that? THE TRUTH: COMMON WISHES HE WAS DRAKE. HE IS STARVING FOR ATTENTION AND TRYING TO INVENT AN ARTIFICIAL BEEF TO HELP SALES OF HIS ALBUM BECAUSE HIS SALES ARE PATHETIC. Common is old and proving irrelevant. "Death of Autotune" is a dope track by a lengendary King MC, telling the youngsters to get in their lane. "Sweet" is a mediocre track by a jealous cornball hypocritical MC trying to act hard after making tracks in fruity clothes like "Come Close". Common - thanks for stating the very obvious - "Yes. Drake is soft" but here is what is not allegedly not so obvious to you - "You are soft as hell also". GET A LIFE

    i honestly question when drake got into rap music. he got in rap music to make money. he doesn't love or know shit about it. his favorite albums all came out post 2000, he's a noob, industry plant, designed to attract these confused little gay boy rap fans. drake has probably never heard paid in full, only built for cuban linx, or road to riches. drake's the kind of rapper that started rapping after he saw some flamer like kanye do it. taking battles and bars deadly serious. thin skinned pussy making pussy love jams. ll cool j at his worst makes way better music than drake. plus cool j actually bagged bad bitches before rap. didn't ll get all kinds of backlash for his love jams? he was actually skilled. drake is not. keep crooning in auto tune, cant perform live, weak. and cool j would get soft but he was always down to battle, and knock someones head off. thats because cool j was hip hop, and knows the culture, hes not some half gay actor who got into rap to make a cpl bucks. young money is rap poison, birdman the gay ceo, some vision.

  • dim

    any man defending drake, listening to drake, riding for drake, is a faggot who would get his head split in 95. things done changed. these fruit bags will let anyone rhyme and ride for them no matter how gay, fake, and pathetic they are. guy cannot rhyme. guy cannot sing. his albums are trash. mixtapes are trash. image is GAY. videos are embarrassing. emo queer shit. but he's killin the game. look at the pic of drake in lipstick, puckering up in a blue jays hat in a smedium t with the sleeves rolled up. that's a GAY MAN! little white girls, little white boys, homosexuals, and confused fatherless crack babies. only people riding with drake at this point. hip hop is disgusting. got a fat C.O. dropping g shit, a corny hood rat bitch that can't rap or dress is mashing the charts, and a gay rich child actor canadian jew boy is dropping love jams under the guise of a hip hop artist. WOW. you kids bought in to everything they sold you and killed the culture. big l caught a bullet. why cant drake?

    Honestly I was very disappointed in Common with this whole BS beef and more importantly trying to disguise this as some ploy to defend real hiphop but later saying he liked Drake's music.Common is legendary in the game no question but I can't really support someone who NEVER chastised his boy Kanye who did an entire album of singing yet we are supposed to believe that he has such a problem with Drake! A failure on Com's part!

      Its funny cuz at one point in the 90's Ice Cube felt the exact same way with Common, Ice Cube wanted the Raw street hip hop and called out common for putting out bitch music, isn't it ironic no one remembers haha eat a dick hater and Face it Drake Is on Top right now guarantee he would out sell common in anything right now, SHOWS, CD SALES, Endorsements, next is gonna be movies

    • iamrealhiphop

      Why are you disappointed in a hip hop artist doing hip hop? That is like being disappointed in a track star participating in the race. Beef is a part of hip hop. I blame this "new generation" of soft ass rappers for making it seem like it is an attack on them personally and crying about it like a little bitch. Drake is way to emo for this game and he needs to release an album with Trey Songz and call it a day. Like many hip hop fans, Common was sick of hearing the softer side of hip hop overpopulating the scene. Ironically Kanye is gonna be on the remix of Sweet so he must be tired of it too.

      i know, u weeneies grew up thinking every rap battle was BEEF. you can't sleep at night when you have BEEF. 50 cent vs. whoever was not beef, it's fun, light hearted competition. kool moe dee and ll was competition. kool moe dee loves ll and vice versa. drake is a coward, pop shit and hide your hands. thats how u kids get down. rationalize it all u want, drake dissed common, got a response, and couldnt finish the job. walked away like a bitch, scared of a litttle competition. could've proven himself as a legit rapper, if he held his ground. NOPE. back to singing songs for gay boys full time.

      look man. Common didn't jump all over Aubrey until after Aubrey started talking real slick and making those sideways comments about him on Stay Schemin. In any real artists opinion, that is the start of some beef right there if there already wasn't some.

    Drake made common look like a sore bitch for not making another counter-diss track lol....!

  • Greggo

    Drake just doesn't get Hip-Hop. If he wants to get respect from the community he can't bitch out like that. He wants to be the face of the young generation of hip hop but doesn't think he needs to prove his worth or take his lumps? He isn't battle tested where he can just walk away like that. The battle is a part of the culture, and it is disrespect to the game to brush off a legend. Common is asking him to prove that he is Hip-Hop and he just proved he is not

      Co-sign. After this, his days are truly numbered. I laugh when all of these Drake fans claim that he is gonna go down in history as one of the greatest. Only the real hip hop circle can put a rapper in that place, not those who have Drake and Justin Bieber in rotation on their Ipod. Drake is NOT and will NEVER be considered hip hop after this. Common fucked you up in less then 60 seconds and Drake still had a chance to come back. Then he fucked up his own career by not responding. SMH

    Bullshit, Drake. Fuck you and your pussy-ass music. 'Sweet' isn't just a great song, it represents maintaining the integrity of hip-hop. Pop, electronic, and R&B are starting to infuse more and more into today's hip-hop culture, and that shit needs to stop (mixing some elements of other genres isn't bad; it's just that there should be limits). If not, soon, we'll come to a point where the lines between hip-hop and other genres are indistinguishable, and hip-hop loses its sense of identity, just catering to the masses. Of course there will always be people that stay true to hip-hop roots, but they won't get the attention they deserve. This is a serious issue, and I was glad to see someone, especially a legend like Common, bring light to this awful trend.

YESSIR is not a true hip hop fan. at all. and if you wonder why he's saying all this shit "whne his album drops"....2 things for you. ONE is that he's obvioulsy going to get a lot of airtime and all that during the time where his album is dropping LIKE EVERY OTHER ARTIST. 2. rappers are signed to labels....and this is still a business. he could have easily been convinced to surface this kind of shit during the time of his album drop for his label and all that....but that's just the name of the game. rappers be sucking dick to get thier shit played...and a lot of them are slaves to thier label...just because common dropped the heat on drake during an ablum dropping period doesn't mean it's all to get his name out there cheaply. its part of the game. he's not gonna drop a random diss single at a time where he aint puttin out work

    • YESSIR

      WHY DID COMMON GO ON RADIO AND SAY THE SONG WAS ABOUT DRAKE A DAY BEFORE HIS ALBUM DROPPED THEN?

  • joeyjerimiah

    if anyone beef with drake..drake would lose....man have you seen him in those desgrassi shows? and he from upper class toronto....nothing wrong with that ....but hip hop...its not good

  • finch

    none of u niggas know drake or his niggas ,iam from toronto an i know drakes niggas personnally and drake and dudes arent to be fuked with . dont let the singing fool u guys .i love 90s rap i grew up on it but everything things needs change arent you niggas sick of hearing same shit over and over again .drakes brings a fresh face to game you niggas need to stop acting hard and relax you prolly go home in secret and sing the lyrics to ur drake cd .ur not gay if u listen to drake dont worry .

    • itsover

      I wouldn't be afraid of Drake even if he had a loaded gun pointed straight at me. Britney Spears is more hood than Drake.

    • jjsteez

      how narrow minded of you man. seriously. you view evreryone who likes common over drake as 90's fans? "oh....ppl can't appreciate drake cause they want that cliche old school rap" uhhh...nahhhh. i like good music. should i like lil wayne cause he comes out with tight pants and a guitar singin some bullshit "oh man...you didn't like waynes new innovative performance? stop being such a boring underground rap fan" no...you're wrong.....drake isn't "new" or creative....he gets on easy melodic beats and uses his smooth voice to whine out some vocals and make his shit feel heart felt. when asked about his favorite song on the album, his answer was backed up by the fact that his song was "inspired by my family problems...i just remember me and my uncle who i love screaming at eachother over the phone...my family was just goin through some real hard shit" oh word? AT LEAST YOU HAVE A FAMILY....drake has never seen a dude murdered in front of him in cold blood. never walked in on an overdose. never had siblings who were gang raped etc... "don't fuck with drake"...yea right kid...if he lived anyting close to a real life we would know it. REAL RECOGNIZE REAL.

THERE ARE MORE MCS THAT ARE INSANELY TALENTED AND DONT SELL THAN THERE ARE TALENTED MCS THAT DO SELL. if anything drake just followed in commons path and blended it with joeys beats with an artifial studio enhanced voice. everyone remember his performance on leno? (maybe conan, some late night show) it was criticized as one of the worst late night performances ever. people called in embarrassing. FAKE DRAKE WILL NEVER HAVE THE RESPECT COMMON HAS

It's like saying Vanilla Ice & MC Hammer are lyrically better than Rakim and Biz Markie.

  • itsover

    Drake is not considered hip hip hop. He has no message in his music. Just because he is signed to a label that purchases the majority of his albums does not mean he is a skilled artist. It really isn't a secret. That battle really showed that Drake is not built for the culture, plain and simple. You've got these anonymous clown ass niggas like YESSIR with no knowledge or sense of history of hip hop culture cheerleading for Drake because he is a mainstream pop artist. You put Drake against Big Daddy Kane and you would get a 10000x worse what Common could do....

      Drake's fan base is on the internet everyday defending him. What makes you think Common really meant that? Everyone today including NaS is taking it easy on that faggot because they know he's not hip hop but considered a popular artist. Furthermore, what does age have to do with skill? Drake is an example of corprorate america at work, you think Common cares about record sales when he's a Grammy award winning artist with respect in the hip hop community. Just continue daydreaming son...

    Well i laugh out loud at the people who say common didnt do it for record sales. What artist wouldnt want to go platinum? even gold? You should just face it, the guy you put on a pedestal got on some lame album promotin bullshit and it didnt work out as planned, so he admitted he liked the nigga style. Had drakes career been severely damaged by common, you think he would be claiming he dug the nigga music? He just tryna save face. No respect lost here though..

    What Hip Hop DX needs to ask themselves is why dont they got the new Dizzy Wright video in the video section cause that shit is fire?

  • dentaldamboy@hhdx.com

    Drake made more money in 2010 than Common has in his entire career. Common is the epitome of a failure. He is a talented rapper who for reasons not understandable to sane people, decided to forfeit success in exchange for his independent persona. Well, it certainly has not worked out well for him and now he is a bitter old dude who looks back as his career with regret and hate. Drake doesn't need to say anything else. He's already won by default. In his stinging diss track "I Run NY" 50 cent said about Jada "He been in the game ten years and he still ain't rich///Even his mama upset that he still ain't shit" This applies to Common as well. Ultimately, the greatness of Drake's talent is unparalleled and that's why YMCMB is the future of hip-hop.

    • Marcel R

      You must be young, so to you Drake is the best thing since sliced bread. Common in 2010 has made more money, he was in 3 movie Date Night was a box office hit. You can't say Wheelchair Jimmy is a winner by default, he forfeited, so that means he lost quitting is not the new winning

    • jjsteez

      so common saw drake as a cheap target to get his name out?....you don't think he woulda came out wiht a club banger instead if he wanted that hype? drake was callin himself the best...common thought it'd be fun to throw himself in the ring with him and let him know what true hip hop is based on. common said himself he enjoys drake music..he respected his art and saw him as an mc he would go toe to toe with... you saying he was doin that to boost his name is ridic....in the era of headlines and album sales you think common is some dude chillen in his apartment listenin to jazz while drake is makin moves and owning your twitter newsfeed...common got the whole true hip hop fans on his side..he would never lower himself to drakes level just to get his name out. the fact he called him out alone symbolizes how much of a joke the industry is today, which is why him callin out drake in the first place is partially a joke/mockery of beef itself...like "well if that's what the ppl are feelin...ima show those fans who never heard of me what real rap is" too bad drake couldn't appreciate that and take the challenge of some true, all for fun wordlplay battle. you act like common is a strugglin artist who isn't making it just because he's not owning the charts. uhhh....he wears bill cosby sweaters...what the fuck do you think his motives are? common is NOT trying to bring his career up. he's past that...he's an old dude whose an actor/writer/traveller etc. who at this point is having fun and reflecting on his life. if you mention money in the same sentence as common...burn all you're cd's...cause he dons't want you as a fan, and you don't appreciate what he's actually about.

    • sc

      your right.. there's no denying that common is lyrically talented but he's just not selling no albums. therefore to bring his career up, there was no one better to aim at than drake, who is a platinum selling artist and also pretty easy to throw shots at due to his displays of r&b..

    • jjsteez

      wow^^^. you look like a chump saying that. what the fuck money got to do with it? drake is livin in an era where ppl blowup overnight due to the flexibility of the internet and other networks. not sayin drake ain't talented...but you common a failure cause he didn't enter the game a celebrity in this bullshti industry. commons a failure? what did he do? he touched the hearts of true listeners. he made art....he lived off of tellin his stories and paintin some beatiful images. fuck outta here with all that money bullshit..... i dont undertand how ppl can say money matters when all you did was cop the attention of the dumbass masses... justin beiber is rich cause he got 8 year old virgin vocal chords and can make a hit....oh so he betta than common? wacka flacka is a crunk image that perfectly fills the slot of ppl tryna look for simple entertainment..he makin mad dough....flockas good? you're a fuckin dumbass

    Well i remember on "killers" by nipsey hussle feat. Drake he said "ill never be the reason that a bitch got paid" and then on marvins room he said "couple of women living off me im ashamed" So i am a fan of drakes music but im not gonna ignore that the guy clearly isnt solid but i really do feel like common went for the easiest target in the rap game. Who couldnt point out drake was a softie? Commons really talented too why would he go after someone so... un-emcee-like... and then expect him to follow through. Common was too great to even point drake out to begin with i mean doesnt common already have what drake wants, LONGEVITY? isnt common in another league? then to say it was for hip hop. There is so much more wrong with hip hop than just drake. AND THEN HE BACKTRACKS AND SAYS HE LIKES HIM AS AN ARTIST, DEFEATING THE WHOLE PURPOSE. just what i observed.

  • Shone Jones

    Drake doesn't want to respond because he would rather beef with tattoo artists than to showcase his skills or lack thereof. Drake stans already had their minds make up regardless of the outcome. If Common kept on pissing on him "oh, he's doing it for attention". If he says "ok, I pissed on him once, no response, I'm done", then he's copping pleas.

      Actually, I've bought 4 Common albums throughout the years and I've seen Common a few times. He is something of a legend here in the Chi. But I haven't bought too many albums in recent years. I download. just like many other people who listen to rap music. Common dropped a dope rap album, regardless how many he sold....and as far as Jay and Ye are concerned, they are a whole different breed of rappers. Jay is really the GOAT and Ye is a little bigger than rap. I mean Jay be out in England hanging out with rock stars and shit. I know quite a few people who don't listen to rap but love those guys.

WHY WOULD YALL NOT SUPPORT HIM IF HE IS SO GOOD? WHY ARE YALL NOT GOING TO COMMONS CONCERTS IF THAT NIGGA IS THE BEST DOIN IT?

    • bkstylz

      First off, It is a well known fact that it's women who buy records. That is why the singles are usually geared towards them. So I will stop there. but if you need me to elaborate more, feel free to ask. Next, and who really cares what the people on the metacritic review list think? How many of those reviews are from any hip hop sources or reputable hip hop journalists? And if you are going to really try to call this dude anything other than an emo/r&b dude, you are only kidding yourself.

    • Anonymous

      bkstylz, this "R&B" dude put out an album that received an aggregate score of 80/100 from critics and sold well over a million records; of course, he predominantly rapped in Take Care (about a 60-40 split), but let's not let facts get in the way of a retarded argument, right? and do you have any empirical evidence to prove the gender distribution of Drake fans is -- heavily -- skewed toward females, or is that some more bullshit?

    • bkstylz

      No...I am upset that you keep posting that lame ass excuse that he is selling more records so therefore that is all that matters. Not to people that are into the culture man. It has never been about sales. If that is the case, Vanilla ice is a better rapper than Nas.

    • bkstylz

      but nobody on a hip hop site gives a fuck if an r&b dude is selling. We get it. That girl you fantasize about went out and bought his album right along with all of her girlfriends. so congrats to drake he cornered the young female market. But there isn't many rap fans who give a fuck about this guy. We thought in the beginning he might be a rapper. It turns out he is an embarrassment and the emo/r&b genre can have him. I wish him all the best and I hope he continues selling millions of records.

  • daviddanielz

    Okay so I read the full interview and I read all the comments below I think I know why some people get it and others are completely clueless. One, the guy and the fans are really young. They have a delusional way of thinking. Think about it, when Drake came out people were like damn this kid sounds nice but they got to know him and don't take this the wrong way but everyone started to notice he was lying about a lot of shit and he was a corny dude. Plus he was talking really reckless and showing how little he knew about the culture of hiphop and I think thats where he went wrong. In the hiphop culture if you make statements or act in a way that pisses someone off then you get tested. That's hiphop, if he doesn't like that then he should go back to acting full time. It's okay if you like Drake and it's okay if you think he's better then everyone but it's not okay for him to say anymore. He has a lot of charactor flaws and everyone knows it now. He isn't built for this kind of culture and it shows. His character flaws sometimes influence his decisions to act in a certain way yet he makes mistakes, only to realize them later. Now you will see Drake make hiphop music again, like in the beginning. More hiphop and a lot less R&B. We all know he makes pretty good hiphop but now that everyone knows his charactor and the cats out of the bag, it's going to be hard to believe a word he says now. So his music and his fan base will suffer. They little boys and girls will wonder why he isn't making r&b and the music he makes wont make anyone but the hardcore fans stay with him. He really did mess up his career. Now he will have to try something new or move on from hiphop. He truly is the new Ja Rule but you never know, Rick Ross is fake and he's making music. So maybe he's stick around but I'm guessing not long. ps: For the guys that don't know hipop. learn the culture before making delusional statements. Common has always been respected in the culture because of his love for it. A lot of people listen to his music but some people don't care for it but regardless they respect him. unfortunately Drake doesn't have that respect and it's going to take time and humbling himself to gain some of that back. -Reposted-

    • Anonymous

      Another individual providing sweeping commentary regarding a genre as if they're some sort of arbiter of urban music. Your veiled diatribe only functions as a subjective analysis that proves absolutely nothing. So Common is granted the agency to write cringeworthy songs with the likes of the Jonas Brothers, and then stand up for the integrity of hip-hop? And lol, you're acting as if this situation exposes Drake's hubris or hamartia, when it's really another petty beef created by an "old-school" cat to remain relevant, nothing more. Drake and Ja are nothing alike either; he's more similar to Kanye, who's also received unwarranted hate by artists hip-hop purists love (like Vinnie Paz).

    • Real talk

      My point is, people are hating on Drake for the same reasons they should hate on Common. I've been listening to Hip Hop since the 80's pimp and you know Common's been on soft shit. Don't get me wrong, Common is good at it, he has been good since he started. What gets me is the fact that I had tons of respect for Common until this nigga stooped and played Drake's game. And your absolutely right about Drake fucking up with his character flaws and not being built for the game in which he's playing but Common comes around and shows his ass by doing what Drake did just to get at him. You have plenty of well though out points David, but the one I have to completely disagree with is your comment about delusional thinking and young fans. You must be living under a rock. I travel a lot in my job and worked with people from New York, Virginia, Mississippi, Cali and Arizona who listen to Drake and these people are grown men with familys and kids and they too have been listening to Hip hop since the 80's and 90's as well. Drake's fans are not all young girls and soft boys ages 17 and younger. It's a lie and people like to perpetuate it for their own reasons. Now if you don't like him then don't like him. I don't even listen to Drakes shit, but don't make shit up about his fans and pretend Common is any better when one you don't know Drake's fan base demographic and two you don't call Common on his recent actions.

  • Real talk

    Look, no matter how much people try to downplay Drake and make him out to be gay or what have you, you know and I know it aint all young girls and soft boys buying or listening to his shit. I know for a fact that isn't the case. Now as far as Common; I liked Common, I thought highly of Common for years, then this nigga goes at Drake when the nigga has been leading the soft shit campain for years. Don't let the singing on Drakes end fool you! Common acts, he raps soft shit and dresses similar. Don't be fooled. These niggas dated the same chick! Common's mad because someone out softed his shit! You don't think there's some hostility there? And don't tell me Common has integrity with his rap shit when he drops "Sweet" as one of his singles,disses the nigga too, then falls back with "I like Drakes shit and it's just a sport". C'mon son! We all know Drake aint hard, but Common aint hard either. I'm more concerned with niggas having fake in common. As for the haters; they will gravitate towards anything that's against Drake even when it's a ploy. Bandwaggon bitches. I think these dudes are just insecure about their own man hood and project that shit on to Drake. Think about it; why would they go out of their way to say he is gay on every blog about him? It's like the politician who fights homosexuality because he's gay himself... SMH... It's you guys who ruin hiphop not the artists.

    • Real Talk

      JC, Although you threw a jab back at me I get it and I think you are right about the "real music fan" point you made, but I think there more insecure dudes hiding behind that same point than anything. I thought too thought Common was a real MC and the nigga had integrity like that until he stooped. I lost all respect for him. Now your whole "real music fan" comment is subjective as fuck. You know "real music" is a perspective. People can say Drake's soft shit relates to them and it's real to them.

    • bkstylz

      wow, what a stan. As I recall it, the media made it sound like Common was going at Drake. Drake took the bait and tried to make some sideways comments and just like Cube found out back in the day, Common is no punk and he went in on dude. I mean, what was Common supposed to do? Everyone knew Drake was taking some subliminal shots at him on stay schemin....and like a real hiphop artist, he immediately went on wax and aimed directly at aubrey. and now look at Aubrey. Since he isn't built for this, he tries to deflect the situation by saying this is about album sales. I mean cmon son. This is a straight bitch move. Everyone who been paying attention to this, from the beginning, should easily be able to see right through what he is trying to do.

    • JC

      Disagree... I think it's real music fans that are taking a disliking here. And really, it's not that he's a homo, it's that his music is wack. Now...Common is a real mc, represents hip-hop. Drake is a fake, a toy, he's been called out and can't respond. Whats going on here is people have had enough. They are sick of hip-hop been denegrated, taken for a ride by these weak ass rnb niggas. I think actually it's you that is insecure. Deep down you enjoy that soft drake music more than the street raps. Right?

    NUMBERS MATTER NIGGA DRAKE> LONNIE LMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOO YOU CANT DENY DRAKE ALBUM SOLD 10 TIMES LONNIES COMMON IS ABOUT TO GET DROPPED BY HIS LABEL AGAIN BECAUSE NUMBERS MATTER DONT TALK ABOUT COMMON BEING A G EITHER COMMON LAST ALBUM WAS A TECHNO ALBUM AND ON HIS NEW ALBUM THIS NIGGA RAPPING ABOUT HIS HEART BREAK FROM SERENA. THEN DRAKE CAME IN AND USED SERENA AS A CUM RAG

    • Jay

      So numbers do matter...? Ok i totally disagree with you, But lets do a comparison... Drake has made 2 albums a tv show and role in a couple of movies...(wiki) Common has 9 albums, 13 movies, over 7 awards.... Commons lowest grossing movie made double drakes best cd... So if numbers matter, what are you really trying to say? learn some history, ask Wu tang, Rakim, Scarface, Snoop Dogg, etc...why they rap? to make money? or because its what they love to do?

      one movie = more than Drake in his whole career. if u wanna compare stacks

    why does drake rap with a southern accent? why does drake throw gang signals in videos with other gay rap stars? why does drake diss niggas and back down? why does drake sing in autotune and dance on stage like a faggot as the vocal track plays under him? cant sing. cant rap. cant act. and thats good enough for these sissy lames. gayest "artist" to ever be taken seriously. boy george thinks drakes a fag. elton john would clean his clock. major labels invested in a canadian child actor with wealthy parents, and turned him into a teenage heart throb exploiting the stupidity of the average rap listener post 2000. this guy is a ladies man? he was a rich nerd in high school, waiting for his mom to bring him tuna bagels in his mansion. i honestly think he is a homosexual. whats even sadder is every sellout in the game put drake on. jay z, lil wayne, jamie foxxx gay ass was hyping him up big time. wonder why? yall know gays run hollywood. i hope someone puts him in a wheel chair FOR REAL. never been in a fight and hes repping blood gang on green screen. rap LOST

    So I am clear on this. Common has been around for a long time, he has no history of doing anything like this to promote an album, yet I am supposed to believe all of a sudden, Common feels the need to go after drake to sell records?? I bet his PR people spent some time coming up with this response. Drake is not hip hop. He is some other genre that I can't get with.

    Drake's a dirty homa, inability respond to Common goes down as one of the softest saddest maneouvers in hip-hop history. Drake does not care because his fan base don't care. ie. 15yo bed wetters trying to work out their sexuality. Time for real heads to re-claim hip-hop and take it back to its roots - real rhymes, dope beats and dee jays.

  • daviddanielz

    Okay so I read the full interview and I read all the comments below I think I know why some people get it and others are completely clueless. One, the guy and the fans are really young. They have a delusional way of thinking. Think about it, when Drake came out people were like damn this kid sounds nice but they got to know him and don't take this the wrong way but everyone started to notice he was lying about a lot of shit and he was a corny dude. Plus he was talking really reckless and showing how little he knew about the culture of hiphop and I think thats where he went wrong. In the hiphop culture if you make statements or act in a way that pisses someone off then you get tested. That's hiphop, if he doesn't like that then he should go back to acting full time. It's okay if you like Drake and it's okay if you think he's better then everyone but it's not okay for him to say anymore. He has a lot of charactor flaws and everyone knows it now. He isn't built for this kind of culture and it shows. His character flaws sometimes influence his decisions to act in a certain way yet he makes mistakes, only to realize them later. Now you will see Drake make hiphop music again, like in the beginning. More hiphop and a lot less R&B. We all know he makes pretty good hiphop but now that everyone knows his charactor and the cats out of the bag, it's going to be hard to believe a word he says now. So his music and his fan base will suffer. They little boys and girls will wonder why he isn't making r&b and the music he makes wont make anyone but the hardcore fans stay with him. He really did mess up his career. Now he will have to try something new or move on from hiphop. He truly is the new Ja Rule but you never know, Rick Ross is fake and he's making music. So maybe he's stick around but I'm guessing not long. ps: For the guys that don't know hipop. learn the culture before making delusional statements. Common has always been respected in the culture because of his love for it. A lot of people listen to his music but some people don't care for it but regardless they respect him. unfortunately Drake doesn't have that respect and it's going to take time and humbling himself to gain some of that back.

  • Jose

    Of course he won't respond to Common, he knows its better for his career.

  • Marx1684

    Damn Mr. Horowitz. Winning a battle w/o really battling is what this looks like. Taking a shot at the man's musical integrity in an honest fashion. He didn't even throw in the basic, "And I've been a fan of (_ _ _ ) for years." I think this would be a checkmate depending on how you look at it.

    two questions: will you ever be able to hear the word "sweet" again without thinking of drake? will you ever be able to look another canada dry bottle without thinking of drake? fuck record sales. common was effective in labeling drake as "soft", "sweet", and "dry". which was his whole goal. common won. drake just decided to take the L and move on.

  • Seasoned Hater

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! We can't let this dude get away, being a longtime Common fan, like many of you I've been a fan since his first album Universal Mind Control, we can't let this Canadian dude get away. As President of the Common fan club, I say we make a petition, a petition to Common that will make him make a new diss. Because seriously, this is the only way we've been getting news from him this past month, we don't really care about his music, we only want news on what he thinks about Drake. For real we didn't give a fuck about him in November when we had a reason to, but when he dissed Drake....oooooh man, dude turned into the coldest motherfucker alive. So we can't let Common be forgotten, because if he doesn't diss Drake again, he'll be a faggot in my book. So, for the love of hiphop, Common diss this bitch.

    • Seasoned Hater

      @ Anonymous uh yes it is. Like every Common fan here, I've been a longtime fan, maybe even longer than anybody else here, I'm talking like two months, Fam. He's a cold motherfucker. As a true Common fan, I don't give a fuck about his music, I only want to hear interviews/freestyles that are disses against Drake, fuck a critically acclaimed album that just released two months ago, the only reason why I like him is because he went at Sweet boy.

      it's not beef. it's battling. krs-1 and mc shan respected each other, but that didn't stop them from battling it out on wax to see who's better. this ain't pop music, it's hip hop. competition has always been a part of the culture. drake's just not built for it.

  • just a thought

    I give Drake and Nicki one more album, then its downhill after that. There will be some sort of backlash and once again a new era of hardcore rap will emerge and make them all look corny and people are gonna pretend like they were never fans of Young Money. Either that or they will find out Wayne and Baby has been screwing them out of millions. So haters be patient.

  • kennyken

    More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isnt 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. damn, i bet common feels even worse now.

  • fuhreal

    anyone who thought of this as a real beef is fucking retarded. just a dude overreacting and another dude trying to get a little attention after the overreaction. stupid shit

  • Let em live

    There is some truth to what he's saying. I respect both artists, but common fans are in somewhat of a haze. Ive never been the one to ignore the obvious. Com did say "sweet" was for "whoever took offense" and then switched it up and said it was aimed at drake, all in the same day. And then, all this while his album is at the cuff of its release. I mean how much of a coincidence is it. Why does it matter how "sweet" he is if you like the nigga music anyways? Too many inconsistencies in commons reasoning. And to make things fair, we know you aint catchin bodies drake so stop it. Just tell it like it is.

    • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

      I cant recall the interview but he explicitly stated it was aimed at drake please believe everybody knew who he was talkin about but that was the confirmation, which took this..."feud" (this aint no beef)...to the next plateau

  • RomanIntel

    I have only one problem with this. Even if it wasn't about hip hop as Drake said, why not just destroy Common and claim victory? I can't say what was on Common's mind when he spit over Stay Schemin but I can say if it was about album sales he failed. But if it was about hip hop, Drake LOST. Nas sold much less than Jay-Z and beat him lyrically. Common looks like Nas and Drake is Jay and the only difference is (and I can't believe I'm saying this) Jay-Z continued to respond. And he was still touring and going platinum. I'm mad this beef didn't go on wax longer. It could've been very entertaining.

  • Anonymous

    drake may have been able to get away with this excuse if hadn't done that stay schemin' verse directed at common. drake dissed common on wax and common responded on wax. that's hip hop. common bested him on a track and now drake talking about it's all for record sales? he should have just kept his mouth shut cause if you step out there put it a song and someone responds you can't go run and hide. you have to man up. drake seems like he's too scared too and it makes him look even softer.

      The only part that I disagree with you is Drake didn't put Common's name on wax first. He kept it subliminal. Common was the only one that put Drake's name on wax. But other than that, I co-sign with what you've just said.

Wat kind of bullshit is dat.
