Stay Schemin’ – Drake vs. Common [News/Video]
Chicago, IL – Check out the video below, where Common fires back at Drake over “Stay Schemin” calling Drake “a hoe ass nigga” and taunting him for the line in “Headlines” when he says “don’t mess around and make me catch a body like that.”
This all started about a month ago when Common released “Sweet” (video after the jump) and took aim at “sweet” rappers who are singing all the time. Originally, Common took the easy way out saying the song was meant for anyone who it fit. But Drake took the bait by ending his set at the Cali Christmas Concert saying “I’d like to thank all of you who purchased my album…I will never stop doing this for ya’ll. I don’t give a f*ck! If you got something to say to me say it to my motherf*cking face n*gga. Just cause I sing, I’m not no bitch. If you got something to say, I’m right here.”
Following that outburst, Common admitted on Sway In The Morning on Shade45 that Drake falls into the category he was talking about. He compared the situation to Jay-z’ “D.O.A.” and T-Pain falling into that category.
The saga continued just the other day when the video for Rick Ross’ record “Stay Schemin’” surfaced featuring arguably one of Drake’s most aggressive verses. While Drake didn’t say Common’s name (as is the style these days [more on that later from me]), many believed the shots to be directed at the Chicago native.
And now, less than a week after it’s release, “Stay Schemin” is hijacked by Common for the most direct Drake diss record to date (wait till the end of the song to hear Common’s verse). Check out both versions of “Stay Schemin” below. Follow up with us for my own commentary on the dynamics of rap beef in 2012 coming soon.
