Canada Dry!

By Greg Bates | Jan 26th, 2012

It seems as if the focus of the hip hop world the past few weeks has been the lyrical combat between Drake and Common. The feud stemmed from one of Common’s singles entitled “Sweet” of off his latest album The Dreamer/ The Believer. Although his name wasn’t mentioned, Drake took Common’s record to heart and decided he wasn’t going to take it lying down. The Toronto rapper consciously involved himself in a war of words.

After making aggressive statements towards Common at a concert, Drake decided to also take subliminal jabs at the Chicago emcee on Rick Ross’s “Stay Schemin” which also featured French Montana. Drake wasn’t the only person in his camp taking jabs, his producer and close friend Noah “40″ Shebib also made statements on twitter. He said, “I remember being called a bitch in 9th grade cause I had your (Common) cd. Good thing I also had 456 by Kool G Rap on me. Now that’s real.” This exciting verbal feud seemed to have no end in sight until Common’s expedient and witty comeback on the “Stay Schemin Rmx”. Is this the end of this feud?

Many fans and followers of hip hop argue that Drake should cut his losses while others are eagerly awaiting a response. In Common’s lyrics he stated, “I’m taking too long with this amateur guy/ you ain’t wet nobody nigga…you Canada Dry”. Shortly after the record dropped, Canada Dry became a trending topic on social media sites and the basis of conversation on almost every hip hop radio station. Common’s response to “Stay Schemin”, which dropped about 48 hours after the original, has yet to be disputed which raises the question of whether Common is the victor of this debate.

Neither men are strangers to the battle scene. In 1996 Common established dominance in his feud with Ice Cube. His diss track “Bitch in You” still remains a classic amongst hip hop listeners. A lesser known fact is that Drizzy also had a battle of his own against a rapper named Aristo from his hometown of Toronto. Drake dropped two diss records against Aristo in 2009 called “Good Riddance” and “Good Night & Good Luck”. The tale of the tape would show that both men are evenly matched but this battle may show us something different.
So now I’m rather confused. How is it that Drake, who is currently a multi-platinum selling artist, had no problem saying Aristo’s name in 2009 but has yet to address Common by name. Is it that his label (Young Money) isn’t allowing him to go all out, is it that he feels no need to respond suddenly, or is he simply waving the white flag and accepting defeat? The streets are talking and the people want to know. I personally am rather baffled. Does Drake have something in store for Common or is he “Canada Dry”?

    Good article..gave me more insight into the beef!

    The article is insightful. Common showed he’s not afraid of backlash by adding his bars to the end of the SAME song the popstar tried to play him on. Nice.

  • Brooklynborn77

    Luv Drake music but he’s so Hollywood!!! Common is much more real so what that be’N said Team Common all day !!!!! Great Article , keep them coming.

    Well written, definitely gives you something to think about .. but I’d definitely like to see Drake turn it up and start mentionings names rather then subliminals
