HIGH Buzz: Common Feuds With Drake

What would Hip-Hop be without an entertaining feud every now and again? Drake can now say that he has contributed to the “classic” form of entertainment. Surprisingly, a hip-hop legend in his own right, Common has decided to take a jab at the Canadian superstar on the remix of “Stay Schemin” which is a track off of Rick Ross’s newest mixtape. Common began the feud with Drake when using antagonistic lyrics on “Sweet”, a track off of his newest release, “The Dreamer/The Believer”. Common goes head on with a vivid description of the rapper in the remix calling Drake an Amateur Guy and Canada dry. He ended his verse by stating, “Make no mistake, I’m talking to Drake. This is the remix.” There’s no clarity on why Common is attacking the Young Money superstar, but one thing’s for certain, it’s bound to get interesting.  Listen to the “Stay Schemin” Remix by Rick Ross ft. Drake, Common, and French Montana below.

Tweet Talk: Do you think Common is being too harsh or do you think this whooping is for Drake’s own good?
