Common was on one when he fired direct shots at Drake. In an interview with Nah Right on the set of his latest video “The Zone” with T-Dot brethren The Weeknd, Drizzy finally addresses the sweet and schemy Comm raps.
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.
The Young Money mascot also elaborated on his verse from “Stay Schemin,” where he makes a subtle reference to Kobe Bryant’s recent divorce.
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.
He also cleared up last year’s rumors about giving the ax to his management team.
No my team is stronger than ever and ready for 2012. I’m excited for what this year will bring.
