Drake says Common diss is just “ploy for attention” | Music News


When Drake spat “Diss me and you’ll never hear a reply for it,” it seems he was telling the truth – as almost a month after Common dissed him on his version of Rick Ross‘s “Stay Schemin,” the Toronto hailing rap star has kept his mouth firmly shut on the matter.

According to his recent interview with NahRight, that won’t be changing any time soon; “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.”

Drake went on to say, “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.”

Guess this is staying as the least entertaining squabble ever. Yes, squabble.
