Take Cover: Common Unleashes Fiery Drake Dis

Hip-hop's good guy goes ham on Aubrey

No longer content to beef with Maya Angelou and Sarah Palin, conscious hip-hop icon Common has found the softest target humanly possible for his ire: Canadian hunk, television superstar, and occasional rapper Drake.

Apparently, Common was able to download Rick Ross’ DatPiff-crashing Rich Forever mixtape and managed to make it all the way to the end of the 80-minute behemoth. Way down on track 19, “Stay Schemin’,” Drake dropped by for a guest verse. Common took offense to something or other and went hard, dropping a remix where he goes absolutely berserk on the human croissant. There’s a bunch of beef-bluster, but dude peaks with, “You ain’t wettin’ nobody / You Canada Dry.” The frozen tundras are now covered in burnsauce…

Hear Common at 3:30 of the track.
