Common Responds to Drake on "Stay Schemin'" Remix

Common intensifies the rap rivalry with the latest diss track aimed at Drake.

Published January 9, 2012

Well, there it is. After a couple months of playing subliminal tag on records, Common has escalated his beef with Drake to an all-new level. The Chicago veteran released a remix this morning to the recently released Rick Ross anthem featuring Drake, "Stay Schemin'." On Common’s remixed version, he explicitly labels Drizzy a "hoe a-- nigg%" among other things.

The track, released to MTV News, includes Drake's full verse from the original song, on which the Toronto native took a few swipes that may have been aimed in Common's direction. In December, Common released the song "Sweet," which contained harsh words for "soft" rappers — a group many interpreted as including Drake. 


"It bothers me when the gods get to actin' like broads," Drake rhymed, later adding "I just ask that when you see me, you speak up n***a, that's all." 


And speak up Common did.


“My motto is Chicago b*tch, everybody know you're sweet, what the problem is? /Don't play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged it,” he starts off on the “Stay Schemin’” remix. “Son of a b*tch, I imagine what your father is / She said 'How you make your opponent the rapper of the moment?' The style he don't own it / Acting all hard when he hardly like that / You gon' mess around and make me catch a body like that. Don't do it, 'cause every song you make Joe is really hoe music / I heard you said you ain't a b*tch cuz you sing, you a b*tch cuz you clean like a b*tch that's 18 / Can't say my name, but rap about a n#@#a's wife / you so black and white tryin' to live a n#@#'s life. I'm takin' too long with this amateur guy / you ain't wettin' nobody n#@#a, you Canada Dry.” is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
