Common VS Drake: First Rap Battle Of 2012

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsDrake

Let's get it on!

A battle has begun between prominent figures in rap music.

In this corner, we have Common, known for his slick rhymes and smooth hooks. Common actually laid down the gaunlet for this battle, throwing shade at his opponent with his song “Sweet” back in November. In it, he rants about how MCs have gone "soft," and sometime, admitted that his comments were directed at Drake and his crew.

In this corner, we have Wheelchair Jimmy Drake, one of the most promising MCs in recent years. He rose to fame quickly once he got with the right crew, so now he has a rep to protect. With that in mind, he laid down a track with French Montana and Rick Ross called Stay Schemin, with more than a few choice lines directed at his Young Money attacker.

Now, the ball is in Common's territory and he is making good use of it. Turning the tables fast and hard, he took the song Drake did with Rick Ross and Co. and remixed it for Drakes (and our) listening pleasure. Check out the video (above) to hear Common's strike back to Drake's dissing rhymes!

Tsk, tsk. Can't we all just rap and get along?! LOL!

    who gives a shit about punks, thugs, and professional asswipes? Strange that these guys regulaly kill each other, never saw clapton, beatles,stones,tull,etc shooting at each other

  2. 2

    that isn't a song. it sucks, and i'm sure any others involved in this battle of crap vs crap suck too. toal garbage, and idioits eat it up. it;s like that pointless slam poetry shit with a casio keyboard/drum machine sampler playing. ugh

    Common calling someone soft is a joke in itself

    Some of you are so fucking ignorant! It's disgusting. Don't you have anything better to do? If you hate the site, or him so much, why do you continue to read? Not all rappers, are thugs. Not all African American's are thugs & gangbangers. Get a clue.

    um…copy / paste much Mario….

    if these 2 "rap stars" want to "beef,
    then by all means, let them kill one another

    the general public would be better off.
    and ALL if their "fans" did the same, then even better

    Lots of ignorance being spewed here. It's fine if you don't like hip-hop, but don't just generalize. If you knew what the heck you were talking about, you'd know that these guys are so far from that killing/thug crap as a rapper can get. But I'm sure you're so closed-minded to hip-hop, and most likely the culture and people, you wouldn't take the time to familiarize yourself with it.

    And seriously…there are asswipes in other genres of music as well, not just hiphop.

    As far as this battle thing goes, it's a part of the culture. When done by two skilled lyricists, with level heads, it's no different than a battle of the bands for bragging rights; a friendly competition. And usually when a shooting occurs, it's not even the artists; it's idiots and criminals…outsiders, who take the competition and twist into something violent.
