Drake Sidesteps Common Beef, Apologizes To Vanessa Bryant

 

Although the beef between veteran rapper Common and burgeoning star Drake has hit a lull in media attention, fans shouldn’t expect the Canadian heartthrob to fire a return salvo in the direction of his Chicago nemesis. In an exclusive interview with NahRight, Drake chopped down any hopes of a Hip-Hop royal rumble between he and Common.

“No,” answered answered Drizzy when asked if he’ll continue the war of words. “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.”

Drake, who gamely responded to Common’s initial barbs on “So Sweet” with response on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin,” is at least seemingly affected, and continued with, “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.”

One controversial lyric on Drake’s “Stay Schemin’” feature was a line framed around the now finalized divorce between NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and ex-wife Vanessa Bryant. The infamous quip, “Beyotch, you wasn’t with me shootin’ in the gym” became an inadvertent highlight and apparently caused Drake some grief.

“That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all,” explained Drake. “I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else.”

Drake said in the interview he’s continually working on new tunes while on tour and hopes to make a return to acting.

    Are you all twelve? Common is like almost 40yrs old. Drake is 24yrs old that is not tight.Picking a fight with Drake? Why not pick the fight with a true vet like ummm Naz or anyone that came out during your time. This is no Naz and Jay beef. Those dudes has serious issues with each other. This is what? How is Drake lame? So, he needs to shoot someone? Oh wait,he needs to sell some “bricks” so Common did all this? Are you all kids? Common has always been a calm rapper. He is no battle rapper and never has been.

      First of all it was a battle not beef ok…second of all its not about street stuff its about lyricism ok….i don’t know where you get your facts lol but it was only gonna be a lyrical bout I dont see drake or common doing a tupac biggie rendition so drake bit a bone and got bit lyrically and backed down…dont try to treat this like its some ignorant stereotypical hip hop rant because it’s not…if you didnt hear or see where the potential lyrical bout stemmed maybe you should choose you discussion topics a little bit wiser ok….and oh yeah hip hop weight classes are depicted by lyricism not age they are not beefing or fighting for real got it…so comment on reality not your own pet peeves on inner most fears ok…thanx
