Common Explains Where Beef With Drake Stems From

The battle between Drake and Common has been the talk of the blogosphere lately and with the latter’s recently released dis track over Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin,” one has to wonder where the animosity stems from.

Last night, Common appeared on Sirius Hip-Hop Nation radio show on which he clarified the battle between he and Drake is not because of Serena Williams, instead, “I got in this because it’s hip-hop,” he explained.

“I was speaking up on the song ‘Sweet’ about, over and over we’re hearing a lot of singing,” he continued. “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. 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.’”

Common also professed that despite the battle, he didn’t intentionally mean to dis Drizzy on “Sweet.”

“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.’”

As of press time, Drake has yet to speak on the issue. Common’s The Dreamer, The Believer is available now. —Ralph Bristout

    Drake is shook, he will never say nothing. The last then he needs is to get murked again on record…he would never sell another song. He know’s he’s not battle tested…he’s sweet.

    • Shawty J

      Drake already responded on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin”, ironically he also complimented him in the process…

      • Some guy

        Drake hasn’t responded back to common yet, common made a “stay schemin” remix and drake has yet to address that. So thus far common has had the last laugh

    • drizzyboi

      lol common does not have enough fans to stop drake from selling records this remind me of the krs one nelly beef nelly was still sellling records even after krs1 diss him

      • James

        Actually, Nelly didn’t sell records after that. That was his decline and then he just stopped being around. Till a year ago.

        • RBM

          Actually, after Krs One dissed Nelly he went on to make the “Nellyville” album the single “Number 1″ which went platinum! & he made plenty more albums after that. The Tip drill video is when he started catchin heat from the public. Krs one aint stop shit. They have a hard time even going Gold! What world u livin in !?!

            krs 1, step into my world. nelly? can’t keep a girl. In more news hip hop is something you live, rap is what you might do. Some bought popcorn rap and a lot buy real lyrical hip hop. Nelly sold a record after krs 1′s, real hip hop is over here? Goggle them, I just heard the legends mixtape the other day; the 1

      ……………
      It’s just one of those “Death of Autotune/ Hip Hop is dead” moments where someone addresses a problem with the modern art form.
      .
      .
      Common is one of those rappers on the same level as Kanye & Jay-z.. You can’t beat those kind of niggas with meaningless lyrics. Drake needs to grow a brain and a dick.

    • D-Lloyd

      THE PEOPLE WHO LIKE DRAKE(MOSTLY BITCHES) DON’T LISTEN TO DISS RECORDS SO EVEN IF COMMON KILLS HIM ON WAX IT WONT END DRAKES CAREER.

      • JugularKill

        Common isn’t trying to end Drakes career. He’s not doing a 50 Cent.

        He’s just dissing Drake for responding. It’s that simple.

        • http://www.xxlmag.com Micheal RapperPort

          THANK YOU!!!!!! Niggas are always looking for some soap-opera rap beef where somebody ends someone else’s carrer. This shit is strictly HIP-HOP. That’s what the culture is about. Breakin’ battles, DJ Battles, Graffiti battles, and of course MC battles. In fact, Drizzy should be honored that he’s gettin’ into it (pause) with a fuckin’ legend.

      • mselwinc

        With all due respect, most “bytches” love Hip Hop Beef & do listen to diss records. Being from Chicago growing up on Common & loving Drake’s “different” style, I’m interested. At first I was thought it was all a joke, but then I felt like Common was on some ole Chi-town slick willy ish playing the low blow game. I feel he was referring to Drake, but did it on the low. These are just my opinions, lol, but a real bytch loves a “good beef”. At the end of the day, it’s all about mental stimulation given by who says what. They are both great artists & I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they did a joint together in the near/far future. Signed, Chi-town Bytch ;)

    • Inno04

      If u really think that drake would never sell another record by responding or even losing the battle ur very very dumb

  • CaponeMOB

    DRAKE is a bitch. think about it,what is drake really gonna say about common in a dis record? im sleepin with your bitch? thats commons left overs so he dont care about that. uh what else? you went hollywood? uh… drake was rollin in a weelchair in degrassi.uhh? he CANT say shit about common really,now if drake was a gangsta rapper it would have been diffrent. BUT since he aint, there’s basically shit could say about common.
    he should just take it like a man and respect the veterans in the game with his sweet ass.

  • mr hexquire

    s’funny how common never had a problem with soulja boy, gucci mane or any of the other god awful rappers “killing”. If it aint over serena, it’s damn sure over sales

    • Johnny Chingaz

      Yo Yo Yo. For the record… Common banking a whole lot more than drake… Look it up son.

      • http://www.xxlmag.com Micheal RapperPort

        WORD! Com is makin’ that SAG money, which is that next echelon that a lot of these rappers only DREAM of reaching.

    • http://xxlmag.com Matrix

      Thats what i’ve been saying the whole time… Common had zero reason or incentive to diss Drake outside of Serena and/or hatred toward his success… And, Im a fiend for battles, as well as a fan of Common. But, he automatically took an L for dissing Drake to begin with. And, I firmly believe Drake has the lyrical ability to get at Common in 2012. Drake is a spitter contrary to “popular” belief.

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    listen here.

    In the name of hip hop don’t by any chance think drake can’t get @ common sense. thas why u battle. in a battle anything goes and it only takes one slip up.

    If aubrey is smart he would step up. he can’t loose cause dude has already exceeded expecations.

    regardless if u don’t like his emo style (as if common ain’t damn near captian emo) drake got bars.

    Objectively we need to pump this battle up.

    as for getting at common. I would sample that jayz line on momment of clarity…when you been rapping sense f common go with what make sense…and play off his name break that ish down.

    see u young pumps and old heads that seemingly forgot. a battle aint about what u did or where u at its abt the moment.

    • James

      At the moment @common is #winning!

    • Johnny Chingaz

      If u was wise you would analyze that common is much wiser than drake. listen to Common speeches, POWERFUL and well spoken. Drake sounds like retard.

    • Sha

      @ff1one@yahoo.com…..

      I have to say I disagree with you on this one. There’s a formula to battling. It goes…..

      1. Someone takes a subliminal (or direct shot at you)

      2. You respond with a few lines. Nothing too big. Just enough to let them know you’re aware of the shot they took.

      3. That person takes a slightly bigger, more direct shot at you. But they still might not say your name.

      4. You unload some fire with their name in the diss so that no questions can be asked about who you’re referring to.

      5. THE REAL BATTLE BEGINS!!!!

      In my opinion Common and Drake are at step #4. Now the real battle begins. If you dudes think Drake has unleashed his full fury, think again. And if you dudes think Common has truly unleashed his full fury at Drake, you are drunk. The battle hasn’t started yet. If Drake comes out and name checks Common then it’s official, WE HAVE A BATTLE. But until then, it’s on some speculative sh*t.

      I personally believe Drake is messin’ with the wrong dude. He’d be better off going against someone softer. But Common is battle tested. He isn’t the one to be underestimated.

      And by the way people…. COMMON HAS MORE MONEY THAN DRAKE!!! Check the Forbs list. So the argument that Common is doing this for record sales doesn’t hold weight. He has more paper than Drake.

  • Pat Myaz

    If you really think Drake has a chance against Common, the legend, please do us a favor and educate yourself on Hip Hop or off yourself. Common is a true Emcee. He’s all about beef, ask Ice Cube. Drake is an actor. He acts like a rapper. He’s fake. He’s a sly guy who surrounds himself with goons and all of a sudden loses his slick talk and starts talkin like a thug. He needs to stop all that. He does not have any of the respect of any real hip hop heads. Drake is an embarrassment to the game. he’s soft, he’s fake, and he’s scared. Educate him, Common.

    • datruth

      ya need to stop r1ding on common’s dick he is just as much of a sissy as drake.and yes he might be a legend but he is no
      rakim and if a remember correctly he is not considered that great(he never appears in any top ten list,has no classic album) and besides he is guilty of acting in the same corny,cliche ,sappy boring movies that he accuses others of doing.what a HYPOCRITE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LU

    YO COMMON AINT UNTOUCHABLE, YOU JUST GOTTA DO YA RESEARCH…..COMMON ACTING SKILLS ARE HORRIBLE…ERIKAH BADU BROKE HIS HEART…HES WAS CO SIGNED BY KANYE AND KANYE COULDNT HELP HIM MOVE UNITS, PLUS HES BEEFING OVER SERENA WILLIAMS….I COULD GO ON…DRAKE NEEDS TO STEP UP AND GET HIM!!!!!

    • capone

      I’m pretty sure the album kanye produced for common won a grammy or two. “be” was a classic. Its easy to tell who isnt a true hip-hop fan because people like you use record sales as “proof” of being a good MC.

      • Magik

        Be didn’t win a Grammy but it was nominated for a few, sales don’t decide no a good M.C is but it does give Incentive for throwing shots if it’s around the time ur album is dropping

  • forevathuggin

    two words for ya’ll drake dick ridas CANADA DRY LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THE END.

    • dg

      trust me you drink that giner ale hater when that stomach is hurting boi drizzy for life

    • canadian hip hop supporter

      Yeah and here’s two names for your Canadian hatin ass ! : “Maestro” aka “Masestro Fresh Wes” & “Michie Mee”

      LMCAO !!!!! Common is ignorant to say a line like that. The minute he said Canada he is dissing an entire nation ! At least legends like KRS ONE and the late great Scott La Rock had love for their Canadian neighbors and went up to Toronto and showed Michie Mee some love back in the 80′s and put her on to record her 12″ single “Elements Of Style”. She was a label mate of the great MC Lyte ! I suggest you pick up some of Maestro’s albums before you talk shit on Canada. Maestro could go toe to toe with Common all day ! Beeleed dat !!!!

      • CaponeMOB

        common aint dissing canadians,he’s dissin A canadian. and he only said you canada dry. meaning the beverage not the country.
        think about it..

      • Johnny Chingaz

        To all those Real Canadians that no Drake is fake(and it rhymes) Took a good laugh at that

      • USA

        No one cares about Canada anyway, eay.

  • canadasmost

    sounds like the bitch in yoo part 2 is about to surface , if drake can man the fuck up and respond .hell prolly sing a diss song the first rnb diss record in hip hop .

  • Aussie

    The only reason I can think of why Common hasn’t dissed Soulja Boy etc. is because they sort of have a place in their respective sections of hip-hop, whereas Drake only caters for the masses. For instance, Gucci Mane is never gunna have a Billboard #1, so he doesn’t really try to achieve that. But with Drake it’s so fuckin’ obvious that he’s only in it for money and showbiz connects.

    • Alex

      Soulja Boy and Gucci are definitely in it for the money, even more so than Drake. And besides, Common isn’t a legend. Nas is an example of a living legend. Also, Drake even said he looked up to Common, and Common goes out a disses rappers who also sing, which includes Artists like Chris Brown and Akon. If you ask me, Common needs to be taught a lesson.

      • mrtoy

        Akon and Chris brown aren’t rappers. Then again, drake rly isn’t either. I think that’s kinda what commons trying to get at. That he thinks he’s a rapper but all he does is sing. And thats not hip hop, just terroble r&b.

  • http://Xxlmag.Com BigD

    Can Sumbdy Put a Bullet in dat Gay-asss-Drake??? Grandmothrs r now listernin 2 rap coz of Drake’s Soft Asss. (G UNIT 4 EVA)

  • Cavz100

    I like Drake’s music,he’s diff,not because he’s diff it means he’s gona kill Hip Hop or any of that Bullsht.everybody has their own style so why take it up on your head to tlk about what some one does?I think common is a dope emcee an should be thinkin about remaining relevant an doin his thing than try to look beef.cause it looks bad for him cause he’s tryna look a hype.why not jump on kanye for his singing when he does?or when ja rule was doin it so often back in the day?you reason for beef is weak.let good music prevail.

  • o.skino

    It has nothing to do with how soft either one is…. or who’s hot… or who’s not. It’s about Common making a song, and Drake taking offense so he took a stab… when u ready to take a stab, u gotta be ready to receive one as well. I bet Drake didn’t expect to get slammed like that… but Common is no Bullsh&t… he’s got soulful joints, but my ni**a can rap! i don’t think Drake stands a chance… but in the end i hope it turns to a whole G.O.O.D. Music vs. YMCMB BEEF!!! Lord knows that whole SQUAD needs to be put in their place.

  • Weapon

    “Drake heres’s how they come at u / wit silly rap fueds tryna distract u” -Hov if Drake was smart he wouldnt breath no life into Commons dieing rap career success kills!!!!

  • Canada hip hop supporter

    I didn’t particularly like that “Canada Dry” line he used to dis Drake. I don’t give a “F” about the current state of hip hop since im pretty much oldschool unless an oldhead comes back out with new material. What bothered me with that line is if you have a problem with Drake why do you have to drag the entire country of Canada into it ! Vancouver has gangs and drugs like any other city. There are alot of good mc’s as well. I would like to see common go up against Toronto’s hip hop royalty and pioneers in a freestyle battle such as Maestro aka Maestro Fresh Wes or Michie Mee. They’ve been in the game longer than Common. KRS One and Scott La Rock went to Toronto and discovered Michie Mee and she recorded her first 12″ “Elements Of Style”. One more thing I would like to add is that it’s not always how good you are at your craft it’s who you know which is a shame ! Especially in this cut throat buisness. So many great artists slip under the radar due to this. Poularity and exposure does not always mean quality product. BELIEVE DAT !!!!!

  • Guest

    Common is a legend and has been around for almost twenty years now. Will drake last twenty years? I doubt it, two more albums and that Young Money Circus will be finished.

  • Sebastiane

    fuck common , he’s just hating . alot of you niggas are hating . why ? canadas on top on the map and in hip hop now . fuckin accept it . u/s built on hate . eat a dick

  • mcf2010

    yeah you guys are right drake probably won’t say anything cause why would he waste his time with some rapper that barely anyone knows? commons just doing that shit to get attention. like someone said (sorry i can’t remember who did), if common was just going after a shitty rapper, then why not soulja boy or some shit artist like that? yeah so what if drake has a soft side? who gives a shit the guy makes good music. commons just bitchin cause drake was talkin with serena, grow a pair will ya

  • zherow

    As a Common fan, the “reason” behind this is stupid. Just sounds like he is lying through his teeth for 3 reasons

    1) There are 2 mainstream rappers that are known for singing about “emo” topics. One is/was on the same label as him (Kid Cudi) and one is not (Drake). Who is Sweet addressing? Take your pick

    2) This is about the culture? THIS is where you decide to draw the line in the sand? So, where was all this fire when Soulja Boy Tell’em was at top, or Gucci Mane or other rappers that are DEFINITELY, from a historical perspective, not advancing anything. With that, you sound like a paranoid and scared old man with the idea that the game changes (no offence, but it does)

    3) This just might be the biggest of “the pot calling the kettle black”. For years, Common was THE soft rapper, the one everyone was thinking he might be gay, the rapper with the non-hip-hop album (Electric Circus). Yeah, he earned his stripes with The B*tch In Yoo, but that was years before and we can’t act like that absolved him of every career move he made that we, as hip-hop fans, did not approve. Now, because he beefing with the new guy that everyone loves to hate, he gets a freebie? Right… As a longtime fan of both, Common looks like a bully and Drake looks like a victim/bitch

  • Fireforreal

    Your Fucking Ignorant. a rapper barely anyone know ? Really ? Common has been around for 20 years, 9 albums,Movies,Made songs with everybody from Dela soul to Kanye west,to Nas and is regarded as one of the best mc’s ever by not only the streets but his peers who knows what REAL hip hop is. He just wants attention ? right lol you silly kids make me laugh. It’s not about Drake having a soft side because every rapper even 2pac does. It’s about all this music out there that doesn’t define what REAL hip hop is. Why don’t we call Justin timberlake hip hop also. How about Lady GaGa. You must be between the ages of 14-21 or a female.

  • Fireforreal

    Also if nobody barely knows who Common is how did he go to the whitehouse and work with Michelle Obama for a importance of reading program she created ? Let me guess anybody can do that right ? lol

  • NICKY BRIX

    Common? Drake? (Chuckles to self) Common is battle tested (Ice Cube) This would be “Drizzy’s” first battle. Drake DOES have clever wordplay, witty bars, and money drenched bars. We CANT sleep on Common Sense. Although moist at times, Common CAN & WILL step up, and WIN an ACTUAL “BATTLE
    “. This will prolly’ end in a hug late 2012…..

  • Muted mullah atari

    Am I insane for thinking that drakes verse was far more clever and much better flow wise that commons? Common looks super lame for coming at drake , why and for what? Common loses points for even entertaining a beef with drake

  • Johnny Chingaz

    Yo Yo Yo… At least Common had a role play on American Gangster. Now thats Gangstah. Hes from the south side of CHI, thats even mo Gangstah. Who the fuck is drake cuz?

  • Johnny Chingaz

    Drake feel into Commons trap…. That should tell you everything.

  • Logic

    This stupid. Drake fans are going to take Drake’s side and Drake haters/ Common fans are going to take Common’s side No matter who says what). Common is a conscious rapper and a veteran that is the truth, that doesn’t mean he’s the best ever. Drake is talented obviously due to his success. You’re a fool to think otherwise. Drake is taking the modern Jay-Z way out by saying no names, Common just wants to battle. At the end of the day You people are broke and they’re getting rich. Go make something of yourselves and stop worrying about two light-skinned dudes beefing.

  • ANON

    Ummmm, who is Maestro?1?! I go back to ‘Can I Borrow A Dollar’, long before most of you kats knew who The Dreamer/Believer was. Im sick to my stomach at the idea of how many people here, who appear to be literate enought to type their thoughts into a keyboard, yet contradict that appearance by considering the one spoken of an even merely equal opponent to Slick Vick Com Saddam. Imagine Mike Tyson (in his prime) Vs. Floyd Mayweather (in his prime)… does that… are you folks.. WOW…. Never thought I’d read comments like these.

    We are in the times. HIP HOP IS DEAD

  • Hiphoplives

    Shut up. If shit like this is actually pertinent to you, crawl under a rock and wither. What does it matter who won, art is dependent on the direction the ARTIST wants to take and your interpretation of it has miniscule ramifications as long as the artist believes in his/her work. Since the dawn of time, haters have hated and haters gon hate forever

  • RTL

    so it´s all because of Hip Hop huh?
    GTFOH Common!

    Be a man and say the truth! You only dissn Drake because he´s fucked your girl Shrek…ups..i mean Serena Williams!
    It´s ok if you´re angry and shit but don´t go around and tell people some bullshit about HipHop and singing and shit. We all know it´s because of your beloved Shrek…damn it…i mean Serena.

  • flawenda

    The Drake is a rapper kid with some talent, we recognize that. But shoot the Common Sense is the biggest mistake that a human can commit rapper. This is equivalent to “invoke the name of the Lord (God) in vain”

  • http://XXLmag.com Leroy Love

    I’m not a fan of Drake, but in defense of Hip Hop, I am surprised Common has forgotten acts such as Nice and Smooth who use to sing in their songs as well as many others such as Slick Rick, Andre 3000, Queen Latifah, Ja Rule, 50 Cent just to name a few. Common should man up and admit this beef is about Serena. In the end this beef sh..t is wack, make your music, your money and do you.

  • Free Speech

    cant believe two grown black niggaz are fighting and rap-beefing over serena’s ass. That girls has must be truly big and sweet, now I gotta hit that bitch from the back too if these two niggaz be fighting over the rights to hit that. That bitch serena, I never liked her before, thought she was too masculine but it seems that big, well-hung humungous native ass on top of her ass makes up for everything

  • RaRa

    Common never would have made it as big if he was from the North. It takes talent, honesty, intelligence, dedication and BALLS to come as far as Drake has. All these rappers need to sit back and enjoy the skill that this Canadian boy posesses, rather than try to bring him down with their lousy washed up lyrics. Sit back and appreciate the fact that Drizzy Drake is taking the world by storm. Respect it, don`t deflect it haters!!

  • IMaDawwg

    @Alex Commen is some sort of a legend its not that he is on the same level as Nas but the kat been puttin in work for a min and has had success sticking to his own format, hes like one of the last few of tru hip hop keeping it alive yanno so you gotta give the kat respect for what hes done in the game… As for Drake No comment he can go back to nick jr or whatever he was on for all I care ..lets just say he wont be missed. – duces.. Look out for Young DOE da Golden Boy… shout out to Dyce Ent and @ DMVMODELSONLINE

  • eyeopener

    Common is okay and Drizzy is hot now, but as soon as the next big thing come along they are going to be a target too, listen to Drake he predicted this shit would happen. Drizzy love the recognitioin but he love money more.

  • THAT CHICK

    first of all evveryone needs to calm down its just drake and common fighting over serena williams a.k.a. shrek. common is “real” hip hop we get it and drake is just a soft ass hoe n*gga we get it. the few people that acually listen to drake and common acually are on common side. because drake is too “soft”. common is old. drake is a new generation. drake sings acts and rap so that makes him soft ,right. common cant do half of the stuff drake does.dont get me worng common is great and all but…
    yeah common has more money….so, thats supposed to make him the better person.
    personally im on drakes side

  • Genesis_Jazzy

    When I heard “Stay Schemin” I was paying more attention to French Montana than Drake . French had the best verses. It should’ve been his song period. Drake and Common … what debate? I look at an artist with the overall package. Drake doesn’t obtain the level Common is on. Simple.

    • HipHopRevival

      French Montana had the best verses?! This is exactly why I wish the rule of “let them get money” would just die off. If all the veterans who built the game would stop giving a pass to the atrocity that is hip hop nowadays, then we can cleanse this bullshit once and for all.

      FRENCH MONTANA?!! Are you serious?!! This fuck would not stand a chance if all this acceptance of “whatever-gets recorded-is-acceptable-if-it-bangs” would just STOP.

      My God, we need a revival!!

  • LexieLungs

    forreal i juss think this is all bullshyt . . . like common didnt have to go aht him allll like that rt … buh drake doesnt need to say any more .. hes more mature & prolly juss laughin aht common!! i LOVE drake .. common went hard .. buh llet drake do what he wants & say what he wants in his music .. i mean isnt that wha music is all about .. expressing yourself in a way that you create it! they juss needah squash it & Move on straight up!

  • hopp off

  • Magik

    Some of you sound like groupies common has more money yeah but drake is 25 common is near 40 drake been doing this music for 5 or so years include acting we push that to 10 Common been doing it over 20 years. Considering those facts drake gonna make much more money, drakes doing this strictly for money but lets not forget who he came up with 9th wonder and little brother best believe he has a the potential to spit real bars against common , we just give common the benefit for the doubt cus he old school original hip hop that’s respect not facts

  • bide

    did i hear sombdy say common doesnt hav fans!!!???,.all hip hop lover around d world is dwn wit him …’d rapper rappers wanna b lik’

  • my opinions

    People are being ignorant, they both are good rappers and if they want to be ignorant and mature and continue with the beef in their raps, that is them. They want to choice from stupidity over intelligence then that’s them because it is obvious that both of them are not using their brains. That is my opinion and if anyone has to say anything ignorant and negitive about it’s obvious that you choice stupidity over intelligence to.

  • NewJerz2012

    Drake, can’t sing unless he’s in the studio! He knows Common will rap rings around Drake! Besides that, Drake is sweet!! On an interview, they asked Drake who he enjoy being in the studio wit. He said oh ooh Wayne, Lil Wayne, just like a bitch, and i mean he was really excited like a groupie!! PS – He don’t remember when Common battled Cube. Drake ain’t built for that arena unless Weezy right with him. Keep’n it real Drake is not longevity anyway…lmaoo

All the boys came absolutely glad to see them and have in fact been enjoying these things. Thank you for really being really considerate as well as for picking out this form of quality guides millions of individuals are really needing to be informed on. My very own sincere apologies for not saying thanks to you earlier.
