“Make no mistake, I’m talking to Drake,” says Common, clarifying any speculation around who he may be referencing.
Until now, Drake and Common have taken subliminal shots at each other. It all started when the Chicago rapper released his “Sweet” single, targeting the Canada native and ‘soft rappers’ like him. Recently, Drake responded to Common on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin’,” calling him a God acting like a broad.
Common fired back on that same record, calling him “Canada Dry,” a “hoe a** n*gga,” amongst other things. He even played a snippet of “Say My Name,” a song Drake remade.
Read the lyrics and listen to the diss record below…
My motto is: Chicago, bitch
Everybody know you sweet, what the problem is
Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged it
Son of a bitch, I imagine what your father is
She said, “How you make your opponent, the rapper of the moment?”
His 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, ooooh
Don’t do it
‘Cause every song you make Joe is really hoe music
I heard you said you wasn’t a bitch because you sing
You a bitch because you cling like a bitch that’s eighteen
Can’t say my name but rap about a nigga’s wife
You so black and white, tryna to live a nigga’s life
I’m taking too long with this amateur guy
You ain’t wet nobody, nigga, you Canada dry
Soft nigga, make no mistake, I’m talking to Drake
It’s the remix. Rick Ross, Common, and that hoe ass nigga
No, man-to-man, don’t hide behind them other niggas
Nah, this man-to-man. You can’t run behind them man
This is some real man shit right here
I must admit, I’m beyond excited about this rap beef. Hopefully they don’t pick up anything, as Drake suggests. Considering both Drake and Common have history with Serena Williams, it makes one think this disagreement stems further than ‘soft rappers’.
Drake has yet to respond, but when he does, it shall make things all the more interesting.
