G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean has offered his take on the current tension brewing between Drake and Common after the Chicago rap veteran subliminally went after Drizzy on his new “Sweet” record.
Having developed relationships with both artists, Sean admitted that the whole situation is bizarre.
“Ah man, that’s crazy, man,” Sean told DJ Whoo Kid when asked about Common dissing Drake. “[We were all cool,] that’s what I thought. I don’t know what’s going on, man. Yeah man. [I’m shocked], definitely, man. There’s a lot of funny sh*t going on but I just sit back. I’m glad I’m in the game, man and glad I’m a part of it all. I’m just going to continue to make success. I’m 23 years-old man and I can’t complain.” (Radio Planet TV)
A few days ago, Drizzy reportedly took aim at Common and taunted his record-selling ability.
Since Drake is “not a p*ssy” he figured he’d go ahead and respond, kinda. Just in case you can’t read it, Drake subtweeted Common by saying “Platinum. Now THAT’s Sweet!” Of course he’s referring the song name and bragging on how many records he’s sold in comparison to Common. Fair right? But then for some reason, Drake elected to take down the tweet. But that didn’t stop the rest of twitter from weighing in on this supposed “beef” between two of the most non-threatening rappers the world has ever seen. (Loop 21)
Last week, Common confirmed speculation suggesting his “Sweet” is targeted toward artists like Drake.
“Hey, he opened his mouth and said some things. So if he wants it, that’s what he wants, all that subliminal, you can do that too. But you might want to say that now,” he said. “I mean, the verse is about me, but when you hear some stuff on the chorus, it’s like you can’t help but think about dude, and that’s what he felt. So at the end of the day, he fit in that category. He already embraced it, so wear it.” (“Sway in the Morning”)
Prior to the confirmation, Drizzy gave his reaction to “Sweet” during a concert.
In a recent performance in Las Vegas, Drake reportedly increased tensions by addressing Common on stage. “I might sing, but I ain’t no b*tch.” said the Toronto rapper. “If Common got something to say, say it to my face.” Will Drizzy have to catch a body like that? A ridiculous situation indeed. (The Silver Tongue Online)
