Birdman Stands By Drake After Common Beef

Birdman and Drake

The Weeknd rushed to his friend Drake’s defense after his beef with Common. Now Drizzy’s YMCMB boss Birdman throws his support behind his artist in the ongoing battle.

“Drake the homie so we ride or die,” the Cash Money CEO told Power 106’s “Big Boy’s Neighborhood.” “Ain’t no second questions about that. We never been a brand of making money off of [diss records]. That’s not what we ’bout. So however the young homie deal with it, we behind it, we supporting him 100 percent with our life.”

He continued, “Drake the little homie. That’s blood, that’s family, and ain’t no siding with that. It’s Drake or nothing.”

Despite his full support for Drake, Birdman has no plans to get in on the feud.

    @Yeah, I’m a fan of both sides but Birdman absolutely cannot say “We never been a brand of making money off of [diss records]. That’s not what we ’bout.” & not think we won’t see through that BS. I’m a huge Nicki Minaj fan but she makes her own money & Young Money’s money off diss tracks.

    @Yeah, I life both sides but Birdman is full of shit saying:

    “We never been a brand of making money off of [diss records]. That’s not what we ’bout.”

    Where was he when Young Money was collecting all the cash Pink Friday & the mixtapes made.

    I ain’t throwing shade on Nicki but she makes her money off destroying Kim on tracks which she does so well.

    His vocabulary is so limited you can always tell he is struggling for words in his speech and his music just reinforces it. He has enough money should hire himself a tutor lol

  4. The Truth

    All them on the same level. Common wants to sell albums by dissing drake, and drake should def not be hating on the legends. Birdman bought at least 400,000 copies of Take Care off his iTunes in the first week. Young Money is obviously fake (that’s why they so insecure and call themselves real 24/7). I’m not hating, I’m just saying what’s up from a non-biased perspective. I’m happy for justin bieber, kim kardashian, drake, wayne, nicki for making it (even though they had to sell their soul to do that).

    Birdmans right i agree whatever Drake decides to do is his decision and he stands by his artist. I myself want to see drake respond but if he doesnt ill still respect him cause honestly Drake does it classfully, Common does it unprofessionally so its whatever. Drake is still winning.

    @Kevin, Exactly. “Y U MAD” anyone? The one that BABY was on. Nicki’s whole catelogue consists of Lil’ Kim disses. Her whole career is based of off KIMBERLY JONES.

  9. Audrey Hepburn

    So now everyone is defending Drake… why?

    Oh yeah… because they know he is not built from the hip hop cloth and needs major support from guys with “street” credibility. His 1st little scrap and everyone is running to protect their sheep.

    What ever happened to standing on your own and representing yourself? SMH.

    Birdman wants NO parts of Common. All the paid street ties in the world not gonna mean nothing against the street love Common has off of RESPECT. Let these rappers fool you. The rappers bragging about how hood they and their cliques being killers are not the tough guys you should worry about. Common has street ties he just don’t blast them all over his records. Real G’s don’t talk that’s BITCH SH*T. Drake better let this stay on wax.

    man let them go at it in the booth, that’s hip hop.. i haven’t seen a good battle in so long and this is entertaining. people need to stop getting their feelings hurt over someone challenging them.. prove yourself! *sits backa and waits for Drake’s response*

    [Reply]

  13. Truth

    Honestly though do u really think Drake is scared of common in all honesty? What clique does Common have? Even if Drake stands on his own Common aint gon do shit. Drake may not have grown up in the hood but he damn sure knows how to rap and make good music. Common is just mad that he smashed Serena williams. Common your mad.

  14. Face the Facts

    Drake will respond and he will do it well. Drake is known to come up with his best verses under pressure dont test homie cause he will come back hard.

    [Reply]

    Big Sean Reply:

    @Face the Facts, Best verses under pressure? Lol mate go check out his Tim Westwood freestyle where he couldn’t spit his pre-written rhymes “under pressure”. Drake is good but he is not as good as people make him out to be but then again the standard of hip-hop has dropped so low any little sign of talent is highly praised and exaggerated.

    @Big Sean, im just tryin to understand how you talking about being mediocre and you got one of the most dense, lyrically challenged rapper as your screen name.
    i mean your standards of lyrics and rappers cant be that high
    just very contradicting.

    [Reply]

    Big Sean Reply:

    @jj, Not really, him being my screen name doesn’t mean i am that big a fan of his there are obviously way better rappers that Big Sean out there unlike some people on the internet me using his name doesn’t make me his biggest fan or mean i think he is better than Drake (which he is not) but then it still doesnt change the fact that Drake is not as good as other’s make him out to be even though he is talented if you get my meaning

    coomon is just mad because drake f-ck serina willams simple as that,he catching feelings like a b-tch.

  17. lost fan

    people kill me with “this is hip hop”
    crap. yall get so caught up in the politics of things and end up killing the entire Art of something
    im done with common as a artist and a person i dont even know where dude stands anymore.
    i always respected him because i felt like he was a rare well balanced rapper who wouldn’t stoop so low to sell records
    at one point his music was about telling stories and interesting topics now that his cd flops he reverts to putting out diss records with 5 year old name calling and threats??you saying drake has two diffrent personalities but im trying to figure out who common is now.
    whoever think this beef is anything more then a gimmick are blind sheep. this is nothing more then a ploy by common’s frustrated record company to call out one of the most popular rap artist right now..yall are so easily amused and manipulated
    i guess im getting to old for this shyt…hip hop really is dead and its mostly because of the basic minded consumers

  23. jj

    diss record aren’t about respect anymore just folks crying for attention
    just think about the people who put out diss and think about WHEN they do it
    cases of scenario with diss records these days
    1.A nobody rapper trying to make a name off of bigger vet artist
    2.a older raper that has fallen off because they were to busy trying to make movies or a clothing line instead
    3.rappers that have been in the game and have never been able to get the momentum they felt was deserved
    4.rapers that were popular at one point that cant get their albums selling anymore.
    now what do all of these do at one point?
    put out a diss record when and ONLY when their about to sell a cd or mixtape

    if you so called hip hop heads are tired of gimmicks you would know one when you see them…..

    It’s just a little beef. Nothing compared to what we seen before in the hiphop music industry. This is hiphop, its great for the fans, the media, and the artists themselves. Whether its a publicity stunt or not, its all cool. Obviously it’ll end soon, and later in the future we can look back at these tracks and just say “damn drake went hard” or ” damn common killed drake!”
    THIS IS HIPHOP. LIVE HIP-HOP.

    @DrakeTakeCare, Nicki was taking shots all on her comeup and even on Ludacis track …”all these bitches wana be my bestie but I take a left and leave them hanging…” and the rest of her features and STILL taking shots. Kim addressed her when she felt enough was enough in a interview then NICKI dissed once again on record so Kim made blackfriday.

    Whynotbuymearing? Reply:

    @DrakeTakeCare, So Nicki wasn’t dissing Kim on her Come-Up days and when Kim did a song with Nicki after YMCMB released it they took the song off of i-tunes and Nicki continued busting shot at Kim.

    I think its very unfortunate that people take beef too serious. I like Common’s music, and I like Drake’s music, so I am not going take sides even though at first, I felt Common is a better rapper. I feel that this beef is more about old school hip hop fans vs. new school mainstream hip hop fans. Rappers like Common, Pusha T, Ludacris, and Lil Kim came from the 9Os and early 2OOOs, where hip hop beefs happened all the time. As much as I love Common, Pusha T, and Ludacris, it seems like they are attacking Drake who is one of the top mainstream rappers just to stay relevant, and sell records. Old school hip hop fans have more respect for Common than Drake. I can understand that, because Common has been in hip hop for a very, long time and he is a great rapper. No matter how much great music Drake puts out, you still going to have some people who think Drake is a soft bitch. Is it fair to Drake? No, but that’s the price you pay when people buy your records and think you the best, even if you are not the best.

  29. smh

    Birdman Clearly Stated that thats what they aint about but If Drake wants to Perhaps diss back they behind of him 100% same goes for Lil wayne, Nikki, etc… Its not a Ground Rule they must obey…They all dwn for each other…
    For ex.. You wit yo homeboy and he got beef wit a nica ..and it may be over the smallest or dumbest shit BUT that’s yo nicca and you gne hold him dwn no matta what. Y’all gne bang with the niccas and after its all over then ask questions later…
    But once again I mean I’m not in the rap industry but thats just how it’ is in the hood or atleast that’s how IT SHOULD BE for any person that call one man his homeboy…that’s real nicca shit bro and yu can’t say it ain’t! show less
