Drake Talks Common Beef, Apologizes To Vanessa Bryant

For weeks, one of the more intriguing questions in Hip-Hop has been whether or not Drake would respond to Common’s “Stay Schemin’” freestyle/remix where he openly took shots at him after weeks of subliminal shots. Well, we’ve finally got our answer – a definitive “no.” Drizzy sat down with Nah Right’s nation to speak about the beef and how, more than anything, he was disappointed Com even took the situation to the lengths he did. He also shed light on the line that has taken on a life of its own, the one directed towards Vanessa Bryant (soon to be ex-wife of Lakers star, Kobe Bryant).
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.
There’s a line from your “Stay Schemin” verse about Kobe’s soon to be ex-wife Vanessa that has gotten some negative attention. Can you speak to what you were trying to express with that line?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.

Head over to NahRight to read the remaining portion of the brief interview where Drake reveals what the future of OVO/XO and kills all rumors of him firing his entire staff following the release of Take Care.
