Drake on Whether He Will Respond to Common and His Shots at Vanessa Bryant [Exclusive]

Back in November when Common dropped “Sweet”, the second single from his most recent full length, a couple of lines that sounded suspiciously like shots at Drake immediately caught people’s attention. Com beat around the bush for a while, as rappers are known to do, before eventually admitting that those shots were in fact aimed at the young superstar. Strongly worded statements were then exchanged between the two on the original version of Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin” and a subsequent remix before the conflict appeared to fizzle.

Common told Rolling Stone last week that he’s finished with the beef and Drake has had ample time to record a response if he felt the need to do so. I recently caught up with him while he was on the set of his video for “The Zone” with The Weeknd and asked him about another “controversial” line from “Stay Schemin”, whether we should expect a second Common response and if there was any truth to the rumor that he fired his entire staff.

So people want to know: will you respond to Common?
No. 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. 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.

There’s a line from your “Stay Schemin” verse about Kobe’s soon to be ex-wife Vanessa that has gotten some negative attention. Can you speak to what you were trying to express with that line?
That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else. That line had everything to do with me and what goes on in my head as a 25 year old man with this much income flowing in. Kobe is and always will be a friend and an icon to me.

Following the release of Take Care, rumors started to circulate that you had fired your entire staff, was there any truth to that?
No my team is stronger than ever and ready for 2012. I’m excited for what this year will bring.

What are your plans for OVO/XO?
OVO and XO will grow immensely both separately and together this year. The Weeknd is about to hit the road and come perform all that incredible music for his fans. I’m looking forward to piecing something together where we can share a stage and give people the full experience.

What’s next for you, besides the tour?
I have begun working on new music already and I’ll be recording during the whole college tour with 40. Making better music and building myself as a business is all that’s on my mind. Hopefully some acting as well.

    Drake: My team is stronger than ever. I replaced a bunch of Lebanese and Filipino soft looking ass niccas with the black men you saw surrounding me in the Headlines video. I made a conscious decision to replace soft looking ass niccas with hard looking ass niccas so it was more believable when I waved a blurred-out gun in a video.

    Nate: We are also hearing reports that this was not a gun but a Twinkie.

    Common loss because of his legacy. If the beef was over pussy I understand it. But now it seems like this beef was for exposure which sucks to see as a common fan. Just accept that every album you’d make from now on will sell 50K and move on with your life. Considering how the industry is now, that isn’t to bad.

    Right. Drake is a booty burglar. He needs to just admit it and not ever throw his hat in the ring as a competitive emcee again.

    Sweet was full of general shots like DOA before it, and Hip Hop Is Dead before that. The Owled One fell for the trap, puffed out his chest, threw stones, & now trying to take the high road.

  62. Cinsere Says:

    Real talk tho… what’s the big difference between “DOA” and Sweet”? Huh? Two MC’s who think a certain trend is corny, so they make a song about it. Hov does it and everyone agrees that it’s for the good of the culture. Com does it, and you got niggaz cryin’ foul talkin’bout “publicity stunt.” FOH.

    Truth be told, Com has always been outspoken. It just so happens there’s a few more eyes on him now than there were back in the day. Guaranteed Com woulda called this nigga corny 15 years ago too, on a De La album feature with no album at all coming out. Matter fact, let’s go down the list:

    1994 – I Used to Love HER – Shots fired at Onyx, Das Efx, and arguably the whole West Coast.

    1995 – The Bitch in Yoo – Head shots at Ice Cubes dome. (pause)

    1999 – Act Too (off the Root’s “Things Fall Apart”) – Shots fired at Diddy, Hype Williams and the street mixtape industry

    2002 – Soul Power (off “Electric Circus”) – This is when Com was supposed to be the most “enlightened,” but he still found a way to throw shots at Ja Rule.

    So how is it Common throwing shots at Drake is so surprising? Or disappointing?

    “So how is it Common throwing shots at Drake is so surprising? Or disappointing?”
    ^^^^

    Cause it was random & unwarranted.

    Especially considering some of the “Sweet” songs in Common’s discog. I respect Common as an MC but this whole shit smells like a stunt, just like that UMC album that nobody bought.

  84. Melchizodok Says:

    Drake is garbage, sells don’t mean shit when then people who actually buy music is people who don’t know shit about hip hop. The adverage black consumer buy bootleg mix tapes (which flood the hood) or illegal downloads. Suburban, white consumers actually purchase through bar incoded methods that register to soundscan. If sellin music to people who would rather listen 2 a negative representation of a Blackman (Drake, whines about women, plus he has no style) rather than a lyrical mc (common) is official? Kill yourself. It’s clearly the new street team blogs instead of plaster posters on light poles now, smh at the comments.

  85. Purpose Says:

    “So how is it Common throwing shots at Drake is so surprising? Or disappointing?”

    ^^^

    Agreed.

    There were also the lines going at the lox: (“With puff and the lox the name Com’s a paradox”).

    Going at Mase: (“You’re better off going to god like Mase did”).

    more at Puff: (“not for the money, I coulda sampled diana ross a long time ago”)

    He has always done this. So to say this is only about record sales is to ignore an entire career, which just makes no sense.

    Whether people now think he won or lost this back and forth (hard to call it a battle) otherwise, however, is a fair question.

  86. rex hussla Says:

    So people want to know: will you respond to Common?
    No. 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. 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.

    But that’s the thing though, Com wasn’t sniping at him. The same verses in Sweet could be applied to Wiz, Wayne, or even his man Kanye… but Drake was the only one that got gassed and said something.

    Are you guys really asking the difference between when Jay-Z says something and when Common says something ?

    Winners write history guys, all this nigga Jay do is win.

    —————————————————————————–

    Com ain’t winning?! Critically acclaimed show? Critically acclaimed album? NY Times best-selling book?

    Nah, he ain’t Hov, and the powers that be keep him off the radio waves (yet he still got more listener votes than Aubs on Hot97)… but best believe this nigga Com is WINNING.

  118. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    So, drake fired off on Common and now he’s the bigger man for choosing to not “believe the hype or battle”?

    I SAID this was his only and best option.

    And no, it doesn’t make him the bigger man. It makes him a bitch. How you pop ALLA that shot and then back down when the task is at hand.

    I don’t believe people are buying this crap.

  119. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    ESPECIALLY after Com said on numerous occasions that he wasn’t referencing Drake, but Drake took it upon himself to “feed into it”.

    Stop playing.

    That’s just plain fucking wack.

  120. rex hussla Says:

    Drake began his show-business career as an actor in Canada, and now that he’s a star rapper he wants to return to acting by playing the American president.

    “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal,” the 25-year-old Grammy nominee recently told VH1 (via the NY Post). “I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”

    As a teen in Canada, Drake starred as wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks in the teen drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” He also appeared in a number of TV movies and played small parts in films such as the 2007 Robert Downey Jr. comedy “Charlie Bartlett.”

    As he told VH1, now that he’s got a massive profile, he’s being careful about future roles.

    “I’ve been reading scripts for a while” he said. “I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now.”

  121. jderrida Says:

    One of these third tier rappers should step in and continue were Common left off…

    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain

    If someone new started firing it would add to the narrative of niggas beginning to back lash against drake

    Big Sean take that step, make that career move. Destroy that yella nicca from Toronto

  122. rex hussla Says:

    Comments on that Drake story:

    Awww…sorr­y Drake, but your eyes are eerily too wide set to play Obama….b­ut great aspiration­s however.

    If BO had down Syndrome this guy could play him…sinc­e he doesn’t Next!!!

    Nope . . Ears Too small . . next . .

    If Kanye went in, I’d and millions of others would be ecstatic…Drake couldn’t duck Ye…

    But I’m thinking from a lol-perspective. It be really funny if all the C-list rappers just started shooting at Drake. Sean, Cole, Wale and some other fuck nigga just started going in.

    Its all beneficial for them. The radio and media support the most popular artist, so if you eliminate drake it would only stand to help their careers. After how he reacted to Com just screams bitch ass nigga.

  131. jderrida Says:

    Bring back those Hip-hop weekly series…Every Friday some rapper drops a diss track against Aubrey…Have the whole damn industry against him…

    It strategic…

    Drake can’t fight 5 rappers at a time

    Those fearful of backlash don’t have to worry because the industry/illumanti can’t blacklist everyone

    Builds an actual movement, like rap niggas every where vow to ether Aubrey on some hip-hop shit

    The Media would love a hip-hop assassination of Aubrey…All the rappers would gain plenty exposure for doing it…

    Most importantly Drake won’t fire back

    Aubrey making it hard for you rap niggas to eat…

    Label executives see him singing and being soft ass fuck and soon the label doesn’t want to back any artist not similar to Drake…

    You niggas have motive and more importantly reason…Big Sean can’t sing, Lupe isn’t a ladies man, Wale is african and black as fuck, Kid Cudi made being soft and singing cool, Niggas were screaming for a Cole vs Drake beef before Cole’s album dropped, Asap Rocky and Odd Future are losing popularity as we speak, how many old ass rappers think Drake is gay and shouldn’t be rapping…

    I could type a reason for every semi-popular rapper to fire on Aubrey…

    Do it

  135. why? Says:

    M.I.A. finally confirmed what we all pretty much knew already — the “Bad Girls” singer revealed to BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe that she will, indeed, be performing “Gimme All Your Luvin’” with Madonna and Nicki Minaj at Super Bowl XLVI.

    “Yes, I’m going to the Super Bowl,” Maya said during her first interview in months. “Actually I’ve never been to the Super Bowl, so it’s my first time. I’m going to be performing with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. If you’re gonna go to the Super Bowl, you might as well go there with America’s biggest female icons.”

    So people want to know: will you respond to Common?
    No. 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. 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.
    ^^
    Knowing this you still responded days after w/ the Stay Scheming verse, when Common admitted “Sweet” was talking about you. If it wasn’t a “hip hop moment” why did u initially respond?
