LISTEN: Big Sean, Common Diss Kid Cudi on New Track “Switch Up”?


/ April 6, 2013

You know what the Midwest is? Detroit’s Big Sean and Chicago’s Common get together and “kill it” in the name of G.O.O.D. music. The two join forces on “Guap“-ino’s latest Hall of Fame single, “Switch Up.”

While Big Sean denies it, “Switch Up” sounds like a diss track aimed at Kid Cudi’s recent and unexpected departure from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music clique. For starters, there’s the bridge and refrain: “Who gon leave you there when who gon leave which ya?/ This is for the ones thats always ridin’ with ya/ Aint switch, I aint switch up/ Naw, naw I aint switch up/ The same me, naw naw I aint switch up/ The same team, naw naw I aint switch up…” raps Big Sean.

Then, there’s Common verse, where the “Be” rapper drops a line from G.O.O.D. Music’s posse cut “Clique,” suggesting the “switch up” they’re referencing on Big Sean’s new cut has to do with West’s label.

“It’s way too hard to be beefing or taking sides over little stuff that don’t make sense,” Sean recently told Power 106 in a radio interview. He also took to Twitter to justify his admiration for Mr. Solo Dolo.

“[Kid Cudi] is my friend, far as I’m concerned we’re on the same team rather it’s GOOD music or not. We’re dogs n he’s on #HallOfFame spittin,” Sean said revealing another “Hall of Fame” feature.

And in a more tearful hip-hop moment, Cudi replied, “@BigSean ur my brother for life. Weve been thru a ton of grind together, and ill always have ur back. Thanx for puttin me on that jam bro :)”
