Drake has been one of those rappers who seems to have to keep fighting for his respect. Drake himself may not acknowledge this to be true but he  still has naysayers. After the success of two albums under Drake's belt, the Young Money artist keeps things moving forward.

In the past several months Drake was in the middle of a rap beef with Common which was strange.  Drake never really indulged into the beef but did make one response on Rick Ross 'Stay Schemin.'  Many folks thought that Drake lack of attention to the beef resulted in losing respect with fans.

In this interview with RESPECT Magazine, Drake down played the notion of beefing to gain respect.  Make sure you grab the May issue of RESPECT Magazine to read more on Drake's success with Take Care, touring, and Common.
