1 Verse, 1 He…Common – Stay Schemin’ Remix
What you thought I was giving Common’s verse on “Stay Schemin” a hearse? I mean he did kill it, correct? He got Drizzy good, and most importantly he was straight up about it. No subliminal crap! That’s the ingredients for a good 1V1H, except for the fact that it’s a Drake diss. I’m not being a Drake stan either. Just ask yourself about how this beef started. Was it because of Serena Williams? Drake being soft? Or Common trying to sell albums? They’re all dumb reasons. That’s were Common loses his 1V1H points. Why is he dissing Drake?!
Why is it just now that Common chooses to make his opinions about Drake public? Drizzy has been rapping/singing for a while now. Is Com’ just trying to sell records? I don’t get it either. Everybody criticizes Drake for being soft, then when he tries to act hard, you say he’s hard. Make up your mind people. You criticize when he’s soft, and when he acts hard? Freakin’ haters.
My motto is: Chicago, bitch
Everybody know you sweet, what the problem is
Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged it
Son of a bitch, I imagine what your father is
She said, “How you make your opponent, the rapper of the moment?”
His 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, ooooh
Don’t do it
‘Cause every song you make Joe is really hoe music
I heard you said you wasn’t a bitch because you sing
You a bitch because you cling like a bitch that’s eighteen
Can’t say my name but rap about a nigga’s wife
You so black and white, tryna to live a nigga’s life
I’m taking too long with this amateur guy
You ain’t wet nobody, nigga, you Canada dry
But let’s talk about this Common verse on “Stay Schemin'”. His verse is a direct response to Drake’s verse on “Stay Schemin'”. Hence Common rapping over the same beat, and replying to Drake’s, “Don’t be ducking like you never wanted nothing” with his own, “Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged it”. Meaning that Common was the one who acknowledged the beef in the first place, and that he isn’t ducking anybody, because he’s obviously here replying. Common really put Aubs in his place with that line. That wasn’t all though. No sir! Common then responds to, “Shawty wanna tell me secrets ’bout a rap nigga I tell a bitch its more attractive when you hold it down” with, “Can’t say my name but rap about a niggas wife”. Whether they’re talking about Serena Williams is up to you, but I think the odds are 55/45, since neither side has directly confirmed it. Anyways, we can infer that Serena Williams wanted to tell Drake about Common’s secrets, but Drizzy refused to hear it and just told her to hold it down. Common simply says that Drake isn’t man enough to say his name, yet he talks about his wife. Woah. Now if I’m hearing it right Common just called Serena Williams his wife? Well, no wonder he’s furious. I love this back and forth though; it isn’t like most diss tracks where one dude mostly insults the other guy by calling him names. He actually addresses Drake’s lines. Common saves the best for last with, “You ain’t wet nobody, nigga, you Canada Dry”. Days later, I’m still laughin’. Translated, Common is saying that Drake has never physically hurt anyone. Not only is he dry, he’s also pop soda. As if that line wasn’t enough he exits with a Destiny Child sample telling Drizzy to, “Say my name, say my name”. Once again, exposing Drake for being subliminal and never calling him out by name. At the same time it’s a parody on Drake’s frequent use of singing in his songs. How can you say Common didn’t kill Drake with this verse?
Still, at the end of the day this is a
lame DRY beef, because nobody even knows what they’re really fighting about. Common is also losing a lot of respect for all this negativity. We’re used to Common being more positive in this music. Something must be bothering him a whole lot. Although Common burned Drake, he’s the only one losing here. Drake surely isn’t losing any fans. People criticizing right now have always criticized, and aren’t saying anything besides “Drake is soft blah blah blah”. Plus, Fox News is never letting Common go back to the White House after calling someone a “Hoe ass nigga”. Common’s “Stay Schemin'” remix was funny though. I’m still laughin’ about this Canada Dry line. As far as Drake responding to this diss? Keep dreaming, stop believing.
PS. Do you know how they got the name for Canada Dry? Beacause it’s from Canada of course, and it’s dry, as in NOT sweet in comparison to other drinks. So Common is actually saying that Drake isn’t sweet, which contradicts “Sweet”. FAIL or what? That’s also why Com’ didn’t get the entire 1V1H. Either way, it’s still funny.
