So the talk in the hip hop beef world is centered around this Common and Drake spat. No one for sure knows why Common has problems with the Canada Dry rapper, but whatever it may be, it has left Common with a bad taste in his mouth. About a month or so ago a track leaked where Common seemed to be calling out a rapper for being sweet. Rumors began to fly about who was the Chicago rapper targeting, was it Kanye? Was it Drake? Was it MC Hammer? Who the fuck knew? But Common cleared all that up during an interview with Sway, saying Pillow Talk Drake was the unlucky soul that the song was targeted towards. Word?
So then Drake being the dude that he is, jumped on Rick Ross’ Stay Schemin record and threw a few bars towards Common, even though in my opinion he should have taken the Jay-Z role and laughed it off. But nope, Wheel Chair Dreezy wanted to show us he wasn’t sweet after all.
Probably not a smart move, we remember A Bitch In You. Don’t we?
Well Common didn’t even let the speakers cool off before he responded to Drake.
So I’m asking what is this beef really about? Yeah Drake has that Bed Bath and Beyond flow at times, but is that enough to diss someone over? Especially if you used to wear crochet shirts and pants, looking like the male version of Badu! Yeah I remember. Could it be over something more than rhymes? Word on the internets suggest that it is over Serena Williams? Not sure, don’t know. But I find it strange or just a coincidence that Serena used to play with Common for a while. Then got up and picked her balls from a new can with Drake.
So Sense this Common/Drake pillow fight ain’t showing no signs of letting up, the question I have for you all is do you care? I mean a Common/Drake battle is about as exciting to me as Krs-One getting at PM Dawn. Not feeling it. I know some of you out there is geeked about this as if it is the return of LL Cool vs Moe Dee. It’s not that. It is more akin to a varsity dude playing one on one with the young upstart from the 8th grade. You tight, but you ain’t ready. This is like Andre 3000 calling out Fonzworth Bentley for wearing pink! Nope, almost hypocritical if you ask Danny P.
But whatever the reason is the beef is in full swing. Your serve Drake.
