Wow… I heard some minor ramblings about this but dismissed this as basic hearsay until the 99cent pack of ramen noodles boiled on over out the pot… The hip hop veterans have just about had it with Drake and they are finally voicing their opinions of the Canadian rapper on wax. Everyone from Lil Kim to Ludcris to now Common have/are attacking Drake and his ‘soft’ image…

Common who just released his The Dreamer/The Believer album gets him a small piece of the pie on the track ‘Sweet’ where he let’s Drake have it and not in a good way…

Via BET—When Com dropped “Sweet,” from his just-released The Dreamer/The Believer, some saw the song as a subliminal shot at Drake. “Singing all around me manla-la-la / You ain’t no mother—-kin’ Frank Sinatra,” Common adlibs before the hook sample, “You look so sweet,” drops.

 Drake responded to the perceived jab onstage at a recent show in Las Vegas, saying, “I might sing, but I ain’t no b—h. If Common got something to say, say it to my face.”

 Com has since been asked about the perceived diss in various interviews, and he finally more or less confirmed that Drake was indeed the intended target in a sit-down yesterday on the “Sway in the Morning” radio show. “He opened his mouth and said some things, so if that’s what he want, all that subliminal [talk] … you could do that, too, but say it now,” Common said. “The verse is about me, but when you hear some of the stuff on the chorus, it’s like, you can’t help but think about dude, and I guess that’s what he felt. So at the end of the day, he fits that category, he already embraced it, so wear it.”

 But Com wasn’t all jabs; he also gave his Toronto counterpart some props. “He’s a very successful artist obviously, and like I said, he’s a talented artist, too,” he said. “I give credit where it’s due.”

 In the end, Common says it’s about hip hop’s spirit of competition, referring to some of the infamous battles that have always captured the culture’s attention.“It’s just about MCing, and once you step in there, you’re in the ring, baby, especially if you’re gonna say, ‘I’m the champion, I’m the greatest,’” he said. “Just like for me: I’m on ‘Sweet’ saying, ‘I’m the greatest.’ There’s gonna be some cats that gon’ come at me, but I’m a warrior, so let’s go.”(source)


Are these older artist in the wrong for coming at the younger artist necks? Or is it just in the spirit of hip hop?
