Drake Says He "Came Away With The W" In His Common Beef

Drake says that Common's disses toward him were "reaching for impact moments, but the bars aren't really good."

Drake and Common engaged in a battle of words in 2011 and 2012 that started off with subliminal disses before Common made it clear that the Toronto rapper was his target.

Looking back, Drake says that he was drawn to the verbal sparring because Common struck first with the No I.D.-produced “Sweet” in November 2011. Drake responded with a verse on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin” less than two months later. Common released his remix of “Stay Schemin” January 9, 2012, where he dissed Drake by name.

“That was the first time someone had called me out personally,” Drake says in an interview with XXL, as per hotnewhiphop.com. “I reacted in a very poised way. First of all, I made sure it would run in the club because that's more painful than anything. As opposed to just being on a blog, I wanted to be on a record that you would have to stand around and hear every night for a few months. That was my whole strategy going into that. Instead of sounding hurt and malicious, I wanted to sound fun, get my shit off. Like I said, if it happens again, not that I want it, not that I welcome it, but I'm ready. I really enjoy writing bars, man. I'm not nervous about anybody saying anything to me.”

Drake says that Common did deliver a quality lyrical passage with his closing salvo on his version of “Stay Schemin.”

“The Canada Dry line?” Drake says. “That was epic. I liked it. It wasn't a good line necessarily, but it was funny.”

Drake says that he did take issue with Common bringing his mother and father into the battle.

For you to delve into my mom and my dad's a bitch and all that, you're just reaching for impact moments but the bars aren't really good, so it didn't hit me,” Drake says. “I never sat back and analyzed that, either. I only heard it once, and thought, ‘I think I came away with the W on that one.’"

In January 2012 and while on the set for his video for "The Motto," Drake said he would not continue the back-and-forth with Common. "Despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a ‘hip hop moment’ or a ‘battle for the sake of musical integrity,’" Drake said at the time. "It’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album [Common's The Dreamer, The Believer]. 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.”

Drake appears on the cover of XXL’s 150 Issue, which is slated to arrive on newsstands August 20. Drake’s Nothing Was The Same album is slated for a September 17 release.

    Drake, shut the fuck up you , fucking Canada dry. Common is a legend, his won every battle you guys had. all your shit is lame dude and you sound like a bitch nigga. common is the teacher and you're the student learned from hin cuz you're shit sucks bitch

    "Pretty sure many of us could give a rat's ass about who's a better actor between them" Then don't respond retard.

  • Bizzalls

    Drake, SHUT YOUR GAY ASS THE FUCK UP. Common is a fuckin legend and would SON you any day. You're a Pop singer. Keep your fuckin mouth shut (I know that's pretty hard because you always got a dick in it).

  • Let's be honest

    Actually incorrect...I like drake and like common..just to be clear...first..NaS definantly beat Jay-z. you can hear Jay-'s sense of defeat in Blueprint 2.. Jay-Z knows he lost. Thats why going after NaS' kids/ex-girl (superugly) was a desperate attempt to regain grounding ( just like Common going after Drake's family). In most cases, Battles are won when the MC says something interesting about the other MC. They give you a new way to look at the MC and you think "yeah, thats true...never thought that"...Nas' Ether went after Jay-Z on so many fronts (with the whole puffy/biggie and dame/jayz comparison thing/ how much jay-z mentions biggie to help his career, "I get it you rock fellas"etc). Those lines destroyed anything Jay-Z rhymed on and NaS was the underdog. On top of it, Jay-z best line dis against nas was illmatic was his only dope album. Nas responded with stillmatic - another classic. Now compare Common vs Drake, Drake was the underdog. He has no street cred. hiphop purists hate him vehemently. Drake is a very very easy target. Everyone knows this. He is a light-skin soft looking from Canada and was on kids TV show. He famously freestyled with a blackberry. Its like shooting fish in a barrel for common. Easy as hell. So likewise, Common pulls out Canada dry - big deal. Very easy line. It's cute. But I got 15 year olds that could pull that out of their ass in a freestyle. Drake was in a much more peculiar position. he had his credibility on the line from a hiphop legend and not much street cred or respect from purists but he pulled through. To win that battle, common had to destroy his career ala jay-z vs mobb deep - drake is such an easy target. But nothing really happened to drake at all, in fact, he became even more successful. He had "take care" playing everywhere just like NaS had stillmatic. Common had what the name of that album playing nowhere. Be real folks. It's obvious

      Everything said by OP about Common and Drake is a lie.

    • hotboxedigloo

      jay called out nas in front of a crowd in new york and shook hands to promote both there music and sell more records overcoming the beef shit trying to sell peace from a business prespective thats good i suppose, that was the biggest fued since the one that took the lives of the greatest so. IMO there hasnt been a beef since Nas and jay that deserves hype. well i guess 50 and game but whatever nowadays its to sell records like drizzy poiutns out

  • Shit Happens

    Drake spit a 30-something bar verse. Common killed him with one line ... "Canada Dry". Aubrey never responded after that and months later he said he won. He got bitter when he got called out for being a punk then got beat down like one after he tried taking a swing. Only reason Common would seem as though he's fallen into 'irrelevancy' after this battle is because it didn't do much. Drake knew he couldn't win so he walked away/dropped it and no one else has the balls to speak up on the bullshit Young/Cash Money is putting out. So all these other 'credible' emcees act like they didn't see it happen and walk away.

  • Anonymous

    "No, that goes to Drake" Wait till he starts getting movie roles. Then we'll judge whose the better actor. Common is so raw he actually makes 50 look like Denzel.

      And why do we need to wait and judge? Pretty sure many of us could give a rat's ass about who's a better actor between them. You go on ahead and cheer on the sidelines stargazer.

  • Lets be honest

    The best proof of who won or lost is success. Drake has only become more prominent since the battle; common has become less relevant. Album sales wise, its just embarassing for common. I used to follow common since the resurrection days. His battle with drake will be a stain on his resume. If he went after Jay-z, NaS or someone from his era, it would have been more interesting. But Drake? I mean, c'mon, hes like a kid in comparison..neither one of these guys are hard. The commentators on this website just hate Drake but anyone who looks at it unbiased, Drake clearly won. He played it right. Hence he is on the cover of XXL. Common? No mag cover except Jet

    • Real Talk

      NO. A BATTLE IS VERSE FOR VERSE, NOT WHO IS MORE "SUCCESSFUL"OR WHO MAKES MORE MONEY. This is a stupid, bullshit excuse that people make up when their favorite rapper gets beat on the mic. So Jay-Z won because he made more than Nas? LL beat Canibus too right? FUCK NO. Too many of these "fans" don't even analyze lyrics, they just back their favorite rapper on some emotional shit.

    • real

      He does care if he won or not or he would have made that statement. Just because Drake has more money than Common doesnt make him better. Drakes music is more commercial but lyrically Drake cant see Common AT ALL. And Sweet wasnt even about Drake, Drake took it a certain why and was disrecpectful when he talked about being with Serena when Common dated her. So Common went at Drakes pops. Words can cut both ways

    • Anon

      He has an ego just like every other rapper, and if he didn't care, he wouldn't be talking about it and lying to himself that he won the battle.

  • Anonymous

    Not the biggest fan of Drake, but he's spot on.. Common went for shock bars instead of dropping anything real strong or witty, almost sounds like bar filler. On the other hand.. "Sweet" was venom.. the video made it worse. follow at noles506

      Common is a reformed Black P Stone and came out hard in his debut, not to mention beating Biggie Smalls when the Source's Unsigned Hype was a contest in other words he paid dues and don't forget what he did to West Side Connection. Drake came out of nowhere popular which is why his position will always be questioned. Fuck the Gap ads, Drake is going to end up on an episode of Glee by 2014.

  • ace718

    The dude is delusional if he thinks he got a W out of that. He barely responded. And Common ripped his shit up. "So half black and half white/ tryin to lead a nigga's life." That shit was cold. Also, all beef has always been about promoting yourself or your album over the next dude. Takeover was the lead single to The Blueprint album; Ether was the lead single to Nas' joint at the time. When you grow up in the hood you understand that if you try to come outside shinin there's gonna be people who are gonna test you on GP. That's where Hip Hop gets that spirit from. Drake don't know the first thing about it.

  • Essex

    This is a tough one. On one hand you have Common who is an accomplished and well respected emcee. On the other hand you have Drake, a popular and very talented emcee as well. What we should really ask is why did Common diss Drake in the first place. Well the culprits are the labels. Someone at Common's label prompted him to make the only truly questionable move of his career, and it backfired. Common did indeed benefit from the beef but not in the sales department. Common had many people in his corner simply because a lot of people hate Drake, but them same cats ain't going out there to buy a Common album, most of them probably never have bought a common album. On the other hand you have Drake who in his short career has gained many fans but probably twice as many people who don't like him for many reasons, but the boy can spit. In the end. Drake has the slight edge cause Common has no business calling anyone soft. And Common's only reason to diss Drake was sales.

    • Truth like pierce

      He's never gone platinum because not enough people like his music. His fans are pretty loyal so you know people will ride dick but come sept. 17th you'll see a million sell. I'm buying 100,000 myself so i know he'll do well. Common is a little washed up under the wing of his little bro kanye the god. HAHA. he is pretty funny too that kanye guy his new album sounded like a couple gems with a bunch of garbage and if you argue you tried to like it. dont lie. hip hop needs to be guided by good fans, don't just pick a dude and ride it out if they make shitty music. Paul pierce. bibby i see you, crosbby only on the 6th

    • 614grind

      You're so off base. 1st of all Common is far from soft, he's a 4 Corner affiliate. 2nd of all, he didn't do it for sales. Common has never even gone platinum to my knowledge so mainstream has never been his motivation.

    Gucci Mane is the realest rapper and heres why. - all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. - Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. - Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - Snoop was never a crip - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherf*cker. - Mobb deep are the biggiest cowards in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g sh*t but never did g sh*t. - Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. - When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans.

    Reason why Drake won - He's STILL relevant and his fame has increased on a positive side (Yes, Common is working on an album, but he hasn't said anything about it recently) Reason why Common won - he dissed him on wax and some hip hop heads prefer him over Drake, simply because they love lyricism over fame --------------------------------------------- The days of battling someone on wax and winning simply that are over with.

      WOW. Where to begin. 1 you like the finish line we cant wait to run into you? HAHAH THATS A WIN ALL BAR TO YOU!?!? That shit is corny as fuck. Especially coming from drake. He dont throw hands he throws bottles like bitches do. Where was the "we" with when there was beef wth that other bitch chris brown? Drake aint hurtin anyone and waynes a fake ass blood who aint shot anyone but himself so whos dyin? YOU AINT WETTIN ANYONE YOU CANDA DRY. That line is 10x better than the finish line bar. I cant beleive you even compared common and drake to jayz and nas. holy shit. what are you 17? Nothin about jayz is simplistic. Thats why hes one of the best to ever do it. His metaphors and bars went over peoples heads all the time (apparently still do). No one ever hated biggie. Im not even a fan of him and definitely dont think hes the goat but even I know everyone gave and still gives biggie love. Ive always liked nas over jay but Im not bias and Im reasonable. You cant hate hova, hes one of the best to do it. undeniable skill.

      I was a big common fan but lets ne honest Sweet sucked. His response to stay schemin sucked. "your like the finish line, we can't wait to run into you"...one line destroyed everything common spit. It was a milder ditto of the jay-z/NaS battle. Jay-z came with the simplistic punch lines, NaS killed with a deep sophisticated assault. Just like how common got ice cube with "bitch in yoo". Drake got common on stay schemin. The verse was dope. Commons shit was sloppy. I garuntee that he even regrets it. Commons worst career moment. People will always hate drake. Man, they hated jay-z, biggie, all dem number 1 guys. Drake is an even easier target with his GQ looks. But verse-by-verse, it's easy to see drake easily won an made Common look old/washed up.

    The only thing Common serves are pancakes at Denny.

    Drakes eyebrows let nas down

    Um, who cares (hand raised)? Rap battles are so weak, they ain't like they use to be

  • Yo

    Can u losers just admit drake easily won that battle...drake came in the true underdog and ended up making ..common look stupid as shit. Commons whole verse was corny and he sounded desperate beefing with a kid 20 years younger than him. For common to win, he would have had to crush drake (common is supposed to a hiphop egend) but he didn't. Drakes verse won an award from XXL, Eliot Wilson called it the best verse of 2012..it was nominated by BET. What did Common do? It was corny and sloppy. It sounded like someone's old man rapping. You purists will never admit the truth. Drake killed it...

      drake fans over sensationalize everything he does. i would love to see you guys still listening to his music 5 to 10 years from now..

      Wrong again, Drake dicksucker.

    • Drake runs rap

      Lets face it the hiphop nerds on the internet are a minority they are irrelevent they have no impact or influence on hiphop. Their opinions don't mean shit all they do is hate on whats hot at the moment and act dellusional when truth is said. Fact is common is irrelevent while drake is becoming more and more sucessfull. Drake ultimately won these delusional nerds like to believe in their fairy tales and lies. Go get pussy you internet nerd virgins.

      Fuck BET and Elliot Wilson. They're both ass-kissers who don't know shit. "Busters need a man around to slap you upside your head and tell YOU to be your own man, get off the next man's dick." LMAO!! The irony coming from a Drake dickrider.

      OMG! Eliot Wilson said it, BET said it, Yo said it, I should just fall in line and agree with them, they know. LOL FOH clown Busters need a man around to slap you upside your head and tell YOU to be your own man, get off the next man's dick.

    that shit wasn't even a beef. nigga chill.

    Wasn't there pictures with this dude kissing Common's ass right after he dropped that diss record??? Now like a year later he wants to talk shit when he had the opportunity to say this stuff to Common's face. I can't stand this fucking clown, I swear to God. I'm just waiting for the day to come when someone snatches him and up and beats the eye brows off his face. Who does this canadian faggot think he is?

  • zurisupreme

    I think Drake might be a tad be delusional. Personally, I think it was a mini-beef that most of us forgot about, but I certainly don't think anyone thinks Drizzy came away with a W. Who is he trying to fool?

  • drizzy!

    He responded by putting his D in Serena Williams, just like he responded to Chris Brown by putting his D in Rhianna. Like Tupac, Drake is going to fuck your bitch. Drake's a real nigga. Case closed. OVO all day!

  • ART D

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL & SHOW ME WHEN DRAKE EVER RESPONDED TO ANYTHING COMMON THROW AT HIM. DRAKE MAKING SOUND LIKE HE GOT AT DO SERIOUSLY. I LIKE DRAKE'S MUSIC BUT LETS BE REAL HE DIDNT WANT PARTS OF COMMON, PUSHA T OR ANYONE ELSE WHO SPEAKS HIS NAME

  • Manny

    Obviously Common is the better lyricist, but that CLEARLY didn't show for this beef. Common took an L for stooping to attention whoring and calling Drake out for developing a genre in which Common has heavily participated in. How do you call someone "sweet" after having put out "Finding Forever", an album ALL about love and life, the same things he was trying to clown Drake for. And Common's case certainly isn't helped by the fact that his album was about to come out.

  • imho

    glad to hear hes ready and likes writing bars..because kendrick lamar just called you the fucccck out!

  • Am Alive

    Oh Aubrey... 1. Sweet wasn't about you. Com done said it was about whoever felt offended. That means yo soft as baby thigh ass is at fault for that 2. Yeah the Stay Schemin shit was nice, but his remix bodied you. "Gods actin like broads" was good for a week, but niggas still calling you Canada Dry to this day. 3. Common won. Get over it. If this was the 90's or early aughts that shit woulda ended your career

  • Anon

    What an arrogant bitch, but of course dudes like that with a bunch of "yes men" around them never think they lost. Jay-Z still thinks he didn't lose to Nas.. Common murdered this fool on the remix and don't forget "Sweet" tore him up too. What did Drake say exactly.. he implied that Serena wanted to tell him Common's secrets or some bullshit.. weak. Stick to making rnb pop hits, because he can't battle rap someone, he only makes vague indirect disses.

    • ^^^

      No. Common used Stay Schemin against Drake and beat him. Common won. Drake's verse was weak.

    • Anonymous

      Nope. Jay-z lost to NaS. Acknowledged. Jay-z knows this. Ether was dope. Common re-work os stay schemin was corny. drake won easily. His verse was amazing.

    common crushed this Canadian queer

    You ain't got the skills to eat a nigga's ass like me.

  • hip hop

    Lmao this generation

  • Brazilionaire

    Drake is absolutely right on all accounts here. Common was reaching for the sake of hype over his album, and it's obvious his resentment came from envy over Drake's status in the industry. Drizzy even gives him credit for a decent Canada Dry line, and acknowledges his importance to Hip-Hop. Murdered him with class.

  • Anonymous

    How's Drake gonna think he won when his bars were weak?

  • LMAO

    Nah Drake. You took a big fat L with that one. You lost.

  • Anonymous

    This nigga's delusional. Common beat him.

  • jus10

    No. It's ok to stand up for yourself, but saying you (Drake) won against Common is like covering a kids ears and screaming with your manwhore voice so kids can't hear real rappers like Common, so all these poor bastards can only hear bullshit like you.
