We shouldn’t expect to hear a response from Drake after Common’s most recent diss. When asked by NahRight if he would continue the hip-hop battle, he simply replied, “No.” Hip Hop Wired reports that Drake followed this up by saying, “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.” In response to his recent remarks about Kobe’s divorce in his song, “Stay Schemin’” he says that he never meant to offend Vanessa or anyone else.
Although the beef between veteran rapper Common and burgeoning star Drake has hit a lull in media attention, fans shouldn’t expect the Canadian heartthrob to fire a return salvo in the direction of his Chicago nemesis. In an exclusive interview with NahRight, Drake chopped down any hopes of a Hip-Hop royal rumble between he and Common.
“No,” answered answered Drizzy when asked if he’ll continue the war of words. “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. More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isn’t a fan of what Common has done for our genre.”
Drake, who gamely responded to Common’s initial barbs on “So Sweet” with response on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin,” is at least seemingly affected, and continued with, “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.”
