Drake and CommonA rap beef is heating up between Common and YMCMB's Canadian star, Drizzy Drake.

Common has fired back at the rapper after his subliminal shot on Rick Ross' new mixtape track, "Stay Schemin'", where he spits: "It bothers me when the Gods get to acting like the broads / Guess every team doesn't come complete with n****s like ours."

So, in response, Common has fired back, dropping a verse dedicated to Drake over the same track (listen below), featuring Ross, French Montana, and "That Hoe Ass N****."

"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 / Rapper of the moment, his style he don't own it / Acting all hard when he hardly like that / Mess around and make me catch a body like that / Don't do it 'cause every song you make is really hoe music / I heard you said wasn't a bitch 'cause you sing, you a bitch 'cause you cling like a bitch that's 18 / Can't say my name, but rap about n****'s wife / You show black and white tryna live a n****s' life / I'm taking too long with this amateur guy / You ain't wetting nobody n****, you Canada Dry," Common spits.

Now things are in Drake's corner. Will he respond?

Common started the beef with the single/music video "Sweet," in which he called out singing rappers who are "sweet" overall. While he never mentioned Drake by name in the song, he revealed last month that he was, indeed, the target.

"The verse is like, about me, but then, when you hear some of the stuff on the chorus, you can't help but think about [Drake]," the Chicago rapper explained in an interview on Shade 45's Sway in the Morning radio show. "I guess that's how he felt. So yea, at the end of the day, he fit in that category. He already embraced it, so wear it."

So far, Drake has yet to comment on Common's new verse. However, at the end of the track, Common warns Drizzy to face him "man-to-man" and not hide behind others.

"Man to man, don't hide behind them other n****s. This man-to-man, you can run behind them man. This some real man sh**," the Chicago rapper said.
