Drake Discusses His Beef With Common & Who He Thinks Won

For the cover story of their 150th and 16th anniversary issue, XXL asked Drake about his beef with Common last year and who he thinks won now that it has been squashed. Drizzy also mentioned that he found Common‘s “Canada Dry” line funny, but he did not like the comments about his parents.

You can check out the new excerpts below and if you want to read more excerpts from XXL‘s interview with Drizzy Drake before the magazine is released on newsstands next week (August 20th), click here!

You did strike back at Common after he dissed you last year.
Obviously, the whole tension with that whole camp has been brewing for a long time, and that was the first time someone had called me out personally. I reacted in a very poised way. First of all, I made sure it would run in the club because that’s more painful than anything. As opposed to just being on a blog, I wanted to be on a record that you would have to stand around and hear every night for a few months. That was my whole strategy going into that. Instead of sounding hurt and malicious, I wanted to sound fun, get my shit off. Like I said, if it happens again, not that I want it, not that I welcome it, but I’m ready. I really enjoy writing bars, man. I’m not nervous about anybody saying anything to me.

It seemed like you won, but his last line was good.
The Canada Dry line? That was epic. I liked it. It wasn’t a good line necessarily, but it was funny.

Did he step over the line when he scorned you for being biracial?
For you to delve into my mom and my dad’s a bitch and all that, you’re just reaching for impact moments but the bars aren’t really good so it didn’t hit me. I never sat back and analyzed that either. I only heard it once, and thought, “I think I came away with the W on that one.”
