Common Responds To Birdman Saying The Whole YMCMB Camp Is Riding With Drake. "I'll Get My Squad Too. You Can't Forget G.O.O.D Music, Kanye & The Brothers" [Audio] 01/19/2012
Common called into WGCI's Tony Sculfield & The Morning Riot Show today to discuss his ongoing between himself andDrake. Tony asked him about Birdman's comments regarding the situation.
"Drake's the homie, so we ride or die," Birdman told Big Boy's Neighborhood last week. "However the young homie deal with it we behind him 100% supporting him with our life. It's Drake or nothing."
Common responded by saying he has a team of his own he can call up in G.O.O.D Music
Common Okay With Ending Drake Beef 01/19/2012
It’s been over a week since Common aimed a verse at Drake on the remix to Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin’” and the dust has settled for now. Despite trading barbs and dodging accusations that Serena Williams is at the center of the beef, Common maintains that he’s still a fan of the Toronto rapper and has no plans to throw additional words (unless its necessary). "I think he makes good music," Com told Rolling Stone. "He's definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music."
Common says that the current battle between Drake and himself is simply a matter of circumstance and a part of the game. "I don't think I had anything to prove," Common said, of engaging in the back-and-forth with Drizzy. "I just felt like somebody stepped and challenged me, so I had to step into the ring. He said some things that I thought were directed at me, so I had to address it back."
Drake hasn’t responded to Common’s last jab so far, and if he doesn’t, that will be the end of this episode. "I feel like I said what I had to say, and I'm just going to let it be at that point," Common said. "Now, if something else happens, then I'll just have to act accordingly. But right now, I feel like, man, I said what I needed to say about this situation on record."
