Common vs. Drake: Stay Schemin'
The rap beef that has been brewing between Drake and Common has finally come to a head; Common has stepped up and named names in his new diss track. Brrrrrrr it's getting cold in here! It all started with Common's song "Sweet" in which he says:
Y'all n***** man, y'all soft m*****f****** / Singing all around me man, la la la / You ain't m*****f****** Frank Sinatra
Many speculated that this line was aimed at Drake (probably because he was the most currently successful rapper who also sings and is decidedly "sensitive". Common denied the connection at first but finally (sort of) confirmed it saying, "At the end of day he fits in that category, he already embraced it, so wear it." Damn. So then Drake hit back at a show in California:
Ok, he doesn't even sound mad but everyone speculated that he was addressing Common. These rap beefs are all speculation! UNTIL today when Common released a track where he NAMED NAMES. The song is called "Stay Schemin' feat. Rick Ross, Common, French Montana & That Hoe Ass N*****" which is obviously a play on Drake's song with Rick Ross and French Montana from the Rick Ross mixtape Rich Forever. In the original, Drake disses Common saying,
It bothers me when the gods get to acting like the broads
But in this diss track, Common addressees all that and more:
We won't go into all the individual shots he takes at Drake but if you check out the lyrics you'll see references to Drake being clingy, being soft, not being brave enough to say Common's name when he disses him, and disses on Drake's songs 'Headlines' and 'The Motto'. His best line: "Make no mistake, I'm talking to Drake."
Now all we have to do is wait for Drake to respond... Do you think he will?
