Drake, Common Hold Hands, Sip on Same Straw in Parody Video

Fans of both Drake and Common have been paying close attention to the lyrical war that has erupted between the two. The Chi-town rapper, who dropped his ninth studio album, ‘The Dreamer, The Believer,’ last month, recently had the last word — until the Toronto MC serves a new verse — with his remix to Rick Ross’ track ‘Stay Schemin.’ Now, the team over at Ego Trip deliver a hilarious set of visuals that imagines a world where the two rhymers are best buds.

While the public still doesn’t really know the cause of their verbal beef — some say it stems from tennis star Serena Williams, who was romantically linked to both men — the video serves as an imaginary truce for the two, with hand-holding and straw-sipping included.

In the clip, which is a quick 42 seconds, the ‘Sweet’ creator holds a snowglobe with the phrase “I heart Canada” inside, a nod to Drizzy’s homeland. The ‘Take Care’ performer is then pictured with Common holding hands while dancing, embracing a set of puppies, sipping a can of Canada Dry ginger ale from the same straw, kayaking on a river and riding a horse. Every activity — even watching a movie while eating a carton of ice cream — showcases the duo together, looking joyful with a smile plastered on their faces. There’s a very skilled Photoshop expert to thank for that.

In a fitting end to the video, both rappers’ current album titles are used to put a final stamp on their new “friendship”: “Dream. Believe. Take Care.”
