Why is Common Beefing with Drake?

Common took Drake to task last November, calling the introspective rapper a "Sweet motherfucker! Sweet ass bitch muthafucka,” on "Sweet," a track from his new album, The Dreamer/The Believer. Last Friday, Drake fired back at an anonymous foe on "Stay Schemin," from Rick Ross' Rich Forever mixtape, saying, Don’t be duckin like you never wanted nothin’/ It’s feelin like rap changed it was a time it was rugged/ Back when if a nigga reached it was for the weapon/ Nowadays niggas reach just to sell their record.

Today, Common responds to that perceived insult with his own take on "Stay Schemin," which you can download below. While the Chicago veteran admitted that "Sweet" was directed at Drake, today's diss is blunt:

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, 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 and he hardly like that/ You gon mess around and make me catch a body like that, oooh

Common isn't the only rapper in a crossfire with Drake. Perhaps piggybacking on Common, Pusha T fired shots at Drake in his own "Sweet" freestyle and "Don't Fuck Wit Me," an unfriendly remix of Drake's "Dreams Money Can Buy."
