Another day, another rap beef. This time it’s between rappers Common and Drake. The Internet is in a tizzy over the Chicago rapper’s song ‘Sweet’ from his new album ‘The Dreamer/The Believer,’ in which he purportedly takes stabs at the Canadian rapper-crooner.

On the the track, Common raps, “Singing all around me man, la la la / You ain’t m—–f—in’ Frank Sinatra / Uh, lil’ b—h.” Now that’s not nice.

On a recent appearance at Sway in the Morning, Common acknowledged that ‘Sweet’ was directed to Drizzy (and any other rappers that felt offended). “He opened his mouth and said some things, so if that’s what he want — all that subliminal [talk]… you could do that too, but say it now,” he said. “The verse is about me, but when you hear some of the stuff on the chorus it’s like you can’t help but think about [that] dude and I guess that’s what he felt. So, at the end of day, he fits in that category, he already embraced it, so wear it.”

The veteran rhyme-slinger does admit that Drake is a talented artist and wants to keep their lyrical feud within the hip-hop world and not elevate it to a personal grudge or violence.

For his part, Drake reportedly responded to Common’s lyrical diss at a recent show stating, “I might sing, but I ain’t no b—h. If you got something to say, say it to my face.”

Honestly, we just wish rappers would stop beefing with one another. It’s the holiday season, fellas, spread Christmas joy instead of lyrical misery.
