For the whole time leading up to his sentencing, I thought his case was a ploy by the powers that be in Vegas to force Floyd's hand into signing a Pac deal. Reason being that Vegas was hit hard during the downturn. Pac had been fighting away from Vegas a few times and a fight and rematch would generate a lot of revenue. You never see state and local governments go after locals who generate huge local economic impact. The Busch family here in St. Louis literally get away with murder. I know they are old money and white, but still. Whether the incident was trumped up or not, people with money and power dont go to jail over charges like this. Do I think that is fair and equitable, no. Do I think that is the way America works? Yes.

Still kinda puzzling.

You must have me confused with these young cats. I dont want to make it sound like im dissing Common or anything like that but in a way hes like Floyd. Hes closer to the end than he is the begining. I was a Jr in highschool when that "Booming in your jeep" single came out. While Drake is still in the prime of his career. In Hip Hop its not always about the illest lyrics. Whens the last time the illest rapper was the highest paid or consider at the top of the game? Probably never. Maybe LL at one point. Its more about marketing and stuff like that.


I agree, marketability sells and Drake does have a diverse skill-set of talent

Common is an icon.. respected in many circles. He was called upon by the President's wife to recite Poetry. Common has made some helluva songs with great messages. Common also has some movie credits. He has been able to earn money beyond rap... Drake and his crew are a bunch of degenerates in my view yet Drake does write well and has some well developed songs to his credit. Common murdered him on a track I heard last summer but that is to be expected. The kid from Toronto cannot yrically touch the Chitown legend with "Common Sense"

I Like common and drake but I don't like it when dudes come out the wood works to drop a diss on the new hot thing out just to get attention. Happens all the time, shit sounds petty. "Jealousy is a female trait" its like when people hate on a good boxer because they win in a certain way or start calling him out to try to turn some heads in their direction. It's annoying, common lost some cool points with me on that one. Motherfucker if your so good and he's garbage then get your shit some play instead of acting like a chick. The same thing happened to Jay, little Wayne (even tho he's annoying), drake, 50.. list goes on and on

Drake started that beef when he sent a subliminal at Common over Serena Williams. Like Leon said, this dude Drake got some skills, he definitely has a knack for writing. I wonder if he's done some ghostwriting before? my only thing is let's keep it subjective here. Call it like it is, everybody know who started that. Drake has a history of subliminals, look at the lil dustups he's been in...all over women. Chris Brown and him going at it over petty stuff, a hoe named Rihanna!You can't call Com having a female trait when history disagrees with you. I guess to each his own but Chicago cats don't move like that. I don't condone what goes on but here if you do bitch shit like he did you gon get a real n*gga action and that's what he got then he decided he wanted to squash it lol.

It's actually a midwest thing, Detroit, Da Lou, Indy, Chi, that battle rap shit is ingrained and if you disrespect watch yourself. That canada dry line buried him in that brief beef. Can't name a battle where Com got served...I actually hope Com, Pusha, and Drake get together on a track, man that would be classic.

I have never heard drake diss anyone. When he goes in its at haters in general, idk what makes common think he's so special that he thinks drake is talking to him. If anything if I were common I would gave taken that line from jay more personal than anything else on the original "diamonds are forever" off blueprint 2 I think. But hw stayed quiet back then (jay didn't have a buzz going like these young money goons anyway only real followers paid attention to his lyrics back then) But like you said to each his own

Never been a Drake fan. I call his type of music Pop Rap. It really is for a middle school/high school audience. Common is a very skillful artist. His flow may not be the most rhythmic but his words make up for that. Drake on the other hand has a nice delivery but his words are very plain and dense. He does do well with similes and metaphors and he paints descriptive images but at the same time, songs like I'm On One and Best I Ever Had and plenty of others are very catchy but if you really listen to his lyrics it is some 4th grade stuff. I appreciate the curve ball he threw in the game, by rapping and singing but guess what... Bone Thugz did it way better they just could not get off that thug music shit. But Bone THUGSZ was really the first group that combined rap and singing but the way they did it was genius, Drake definitely came from that line. The Midwest has always been grimy, J Dilla to Slum Village, Royce 5'9 and Talib and the rest of them. Drake in my opinion is great for the club, workout and car. But as far as going home and listening to him, it does not transfer. Does he have talent of course, but do I think its carries into greatness? No. His words have to go a little deeper, the reason why Tupac will always be remembered is because of his content. Brenda Got a Baby, Wonder Why They Call You Bitch, Hit Em Up, Hail Mary, If I Die Tonite, War Stories, Keep Ya Head Up, White Man's World, Me and My Girlfriend (Bonnie and Clyde 96), and my personal favorite Temptations. All those songs are so different from each other but at the same time explains the complexity of the artist which it even more fascinating. After talking about representing your city, screwing ho's, popping bottles, and making money, what else does Drake have to offer or any other "rap" artist that is out now? Shit Rick Ross talks about giving chicks Mollies and rapping them..WTF! I do not have much respect for artist now but hell The Price of the Ticket right?


Back to Mayweather, I am glad he did the documentary, it really helped explain a lot of things about his personality. I do think he has way too many leeches around him including Ms. Jackson.

I know common dissed him and went in. But i wouldn't say he MURDERED drake, it was only one line. Drake was just with Common's girl, what can common really say back to drake after he possible smashed his ex chick. Listen to Drake's verse in "stay scheming" and it was like a forshadowing diss to common.

"It bothers me when the Gods get to acting like the broads" - that was to common
" That's why i see no need to compete with n*ggaz like yall i just ask when you see me you speak up n*gga that's all"
"Back when if a n*gga reach it was for a record, nowadays n*gga's reach just to sell they record"---wooooh that was to common who was about to release an album
" Shorty wanna tell me secret's about her rap n*gga, i told that B*tch 'its more attractive when you hold him down'"- haha getting him
" Bitch you wasnt with me shooting in the gym!!" -just like that line
"I'm just hittin my pinnacle, you and p*ssy identical. You like the f*cking finish line we cant wait to run into you. Let me get my mind off that, YOUNG RICH MAF*CKA GETTIN MY MINE OFF RAP"

The thing about Drake that i noticed is he usually leaves all his dissing in his music, even with Chris Brown, or whoever has anything to say. He usually comes first just saying something, and someone dont like what he said (common) or just dont like him (Chris Brown). Pusha seemed to be dissing Wayne more than Drizz
"Without a response from me you really fail to exist. And I love to see you fail that feelin' there is the shit"

Also another common diss was "Lord Knows"
"I'm hearing all of the jokes, I know that they tryna push me
I know that showin' emotion don't ever mean I'm a pussy
Know that I don't make music for niggas who don't get pussy
So those are the ones I count on to diss me or overlook me" ------ ouchhh

I often chuckle at the assumption of what's bolded above. Jealousy and gossiping, allegedly, are things that female do, however, history has shown us it's very much a "man thing", too. I mean, if you believe in the Bible, THE first act (or at a minimum, the most famous) of jealousy happened b/t two men, brothers to boot (Cain & Abel). I bet all on this board has been "dirty mack'd", "crossed" and "backstabbed" by some dude, at some point in your life, over some of the most menial of objectives.

Don't get me started about gossiping....as Snoop once said, "Some of these n****s are bitches, too."
