Drake and Common Have a Rap Beef

I love me a good rap beef. I also like, just beef, like hamburgers and stuff, but let's talk about this new rap feud between Drake and Common.

Say what? Drake and Common? Really? Two of the most peaceful and non-jail-time rappers are having a beef? Hmm, what could it be about? Drake wore some Louis Vuitton high-tops on the red carpet and Common jacked his style? Nope.

So, The Drake/Common beef began with Common's track "Sweet", which called out Drake for sometimes singing in his songs and being too "soft" to be a "real" rapper.

Common rapped, "Y'all n---as man, you soft motherf-ckas, Singing all around me man, 'la la la!" You ain't motherfuckin' Frank Sinatra."

Then, this Friday, Rick Ross released a mixtape and one of the song, "Stay Schemin'" features Drake who finally shot back at Common for what he said about him on the track "Sweet."

Drake rapped, defending himself for not being "hood" enough for Common's standards. "Don't be ducking like you never wanted nothin'/It's feeling like rap changed, it was a time it was rugged/Back when if a n---a reached, it was for the weapon/Nowadays n---as reach just to sell their record."

So then, today, Common released his own remix of "Stay Schemin" and this time calls out Drake, by name, and makes fun of him for being from Canada.

"My motto is Chicago b-tch/ Everybody know you sweet, what the problem is/ Don't play dumb, I'm the one that acknowledged it/ Son of a bitch, imagine what your father is," and also "I'm taking too long with this amateur guy/You ain't wet nobody, n---a, you Canada dry. Soft n---a, make no mistake, I'm talking to Drake. It's the remix. Rick Ross, Common, and that hoe a-s n---a."

So that's what is going on in celebrity rap beefs.
