Everyone has been tuned into Twitter and other media sites, waiting for Drake to respond to Common’s diss. Were we waiting in vain? Drake recently stated that he would not be responding to Common and even went as far as saying that what Common did was not hip-hop, but simply a ploy for attention. The folks over at NahRight recently got to sit down with Drake. Peep an excerpt of the interview below.
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.
