Chicago rapper Common appears to have taken a perceived diss from Drake personal by opting to lash out at the Canadian-bred emcee on a remix to his “Stay Schemin'”, record.
On the new record, Common wastes no time in attacking Drizzy’s style.
Now, Common has responded on “Stay Schemin (Remix)” and the cover art below (Stay Schemin: Rick Ross Common French Montana & That H*e A** Nigg%) also has a message for Drake. “My motto is Chicago b*tch, everybody know you’re sweet, what the problem is? / Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged this,” “The rapper of the moment, the style he don’t own it / Acting all hard when he hardly like that / You gon’ mess around and make me catch a body like that / Don’t do it, ’cause every song you make Joe is really h*e music.” (RapFix)
A few days ago, French Montana admitted he thought Drake was going at someone with his “Stay Schemin'” verse.
“Shout-out to Drake, shout-out to Rozay,” Frenchie said in an interview. “We were in Ross’ crib when we recorded it. Drake came in and he heard it and jumped on it. It was Christmas, they called me — I came down to Miami and we shot the video. … We got two on there, the ‘Stay Schemin’ and ‘Fresh Off the Boat.’ ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ is going to be my next single, but I just told him to throw it on there, too,, keep the Internet going crazy. We just drop singles over here, you know? It’s gonna come as it comes. … Man, I can’t even tell you. I just got off the phone with Drake, man, he didn’t even want to tell me. You know what I’m saying? They can read between the lines.” (Los Angeles Leakers)
Although Drizzy has remained mum on the topic, websites have speculated that he is taking a shot at Common.
Rick Ross pulls out the Maybach and cruises through his Miami hometown at night in the video for “Stay Schemin’,” a cut off his new mixtape Rich Forever. Drizzy comes along for the ride, spitting a fiery verse that will raise eyebrows. “It bothers me when the gods get to acting like the broads/ Guess every team doesn’t come complete with ni**as like ours,” he raps in the wake of his beef with Common. In addition, Bad Boy’s newest signee French Montana raises his profile with an appearance on The Beat Bully production. (Rap-Up)
In December, the Canadian-bred rapper reportedly took aim at Common, comparing his ability to sell records against the Chi-town emcee.
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)
