Are Common and Drake beefin’ because of Serena Williams??
Serena is Common’s ex and it’s been said that she had a summer fling with Drake. Common seems to get at Drake in “Sweet,” a song off his The Dreamer The Believer album.
Some hoes ass n****s, singing all around me man / La la la, you ain’t muthaf***ing Frank Sinatra / Uh, lil bitch, yeah, this the raw right here / Yeah this the raw right here n**** / Sweet muthaf***as, sweet ass bitch muthaf***a.”
Then, at Power 106′s Cali Christmas Concert in LA, Drake took the chance to take a shot back at Common.
I will never stop doing this for ya’ll. I don’t give a f*ck if you have something to say to me. Say it to my muthaf*ckin’ face. Just cause I sing don’t make me no b-tch.”
Recently Common dropped by Shade 45 to talk to Sway and he addressed the situation.
Sway: So you’re inviting Drake into battle…
Common: Aye, he opened his mouth and said some things, so if that’s what he wants. All that sublimal, you might as well say it now….
The verse is about me, but when you hear some of the stuff on the chorus, you can’t help but think about dude, I guess. And that’s what he felt. So yeah. At the end of the day, you fit in that category. He already embraced it, so wear it.
Common: He’s a very successful artist obviously. He’s a very talented artist too, I give credit where it’s due….but any artist can be a target…it’s just about mc-ing, when you step in there, you in the ring, baby. Especially if you say you’re the greatest. I’m on “Sweet” saying I’m the greatest too…”
