Beefing Now Kissing & Making Up: Drake And Common Talking/Smiling At The NBA All Star Game

Apparently the Drake and Common situation was never beef! They both threw jabs at each other on various tracks, now they’re kissing and making up…. Lol. Over this past weekend, Drake and Common were spotted talking and smiling  courtside at the NBA All Star game. I’m glad to see that they squashed their situation. Maybe a Drake and Common collaboration is in the near future. Are you interested in hearing a Drake and Common collaboration?

Sorry But He Is Not Responding: Drake Speaks On Common Diss & His Shots at Vanessa Bryant

Last year, rapper Common released a song called “Sweet”, a couple of lines from the track were directed toward Drake. Once people realized that Common was dissing Drake, he finally admitted that those shots were in fact aimed at the YMCMB rapper. Drake wasn’t feeling Common’s diss and responded on  Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin” track.

Nah Right caught up with him while he was on the set of his video for “The Zone” with The Weeknd and they asked him about his lines from “Stay Schemin” and whether we should expect a second Common response. Below are some excerpts:

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.
