Although he has already addressed the issue, Big Sean was once again faced with the question of his rumored rap beef with rap vet Ludacris.
On a recent visit to Shade 45 radio, the Detroit MC once again brushed off the idea that the issue with Luda is serious. He instead chalked it up to a misunderstanding.
"For me, I’m from Detroit," Sean told Shade 45's DJ Whoo Kid. "So when it’s real beef, beef ain’t safe where I’m from. It’s real dangerous. I never really considered it no type of beef. I really looked at it as free promotion for me. Especially from something I said over a year ago. I ain’t know that people hung onto to what other men say that much. If somebody says something bad about me, I’m like, 'oh well.' But the fact that it was a year later and he’s still hanging onto it ... But you know, it’s all love. I ain’t got nothing against dude at all, for real. I hope he has a great year for real."
Last month, the ATL rap star reportedly took aim at Big Sean and Drake on his new mixtape, 1.21 Gigawatts: Back To The First Time, verbally assailing the two young MCs for disrespecting him and claiming to have invented the hashtag rap flow.
Luda fired back, rapping “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing they flows / But I can’t steal what you never made up, b----! / Y’all some duplicate rap-cloning n***s ," he spits on the song, "Badaboom."
Sean proved that he was indeed the bigger man by responding to the diss by reiterating that he doesn't have any problem with Luda.
Drake has since become embroiled in a separate battle with the rapper Common, who subliminally dissed Drizzy in his song "Sweet" off his recently released The Dreamer/The Believer album. In the song, Common spits "Singing all around me manla-lala/You ain't no mother___kin' Frank Sinatra."
Drake didn't take the higher road like Sean though, he responded on stage at a show in Los Angeles saying "I might sing, but I ain't no b----h. If Common got something to say, say it to my face."
Com has since been asked about the perceived diss in various interviews, to which he responded on Sway In the Morning. “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," Common 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 dude, and I guess that’s what he felt. So at the end of the day, he fits that category, he already embraced it, so wear it.”
