It looks like the Common vs. Drake beef is officially over.
When Common spoke to Rolling Stone last week he told them that he wasn't going to fire any more shots if Drake didn't respond to his "Stay Schemin" diss.
"I feel like I said what I had to say, and I'm just going to let it be at that point," he said at the time. "Now, if something else happens, then I'll just have to act accordingly. But right now, I feel like, man, I said what I needed to say about this situation on record."
Now Drake has gone on record saying he won't respond because he feels like Common was only using him to promote his album.
"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," Drake told Nah Right in a new interview. "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."
How do you feel about Drake not responding? Did he lose the battle or was he right to assume it was a publicity stunt by Common?
