YMCMB Signee Drake decided to speak out on the Common situation seeing as though he has only done so via ‘Stay Schemin’ so far that’s if you’re going to discredit his deleted tweets?!. Since dropping ‘Stay Schemin’ and Common replying with a remix diss the very next day things have been quiet up until now. NahRight caught up with Drizzy to find out his stand on the situation and Will he be replying to Common? Check out Drake’s response below.
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.
I think the camp over at YMCMB told Drake to pull out of this one because going up against Common will have devastating consequences for his future career. Common is an Emcee first and foremost, he’s been battling for over a decade and for Drake to be involved in a war of words with a Hip Hop pioneer like Common is not the brightest of ideas.
