MUSIC NEWS: Drake on Common’s Beef: “Not a Hip-Hop Moment,” “A Ploy for Attention”

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.

I gotta say, I’m tired of this “beef,” if you can call it one, but much props to Drake for being mature about the entire situation, just like Rick Ross did with 50.
