Common Admits To Liking Drake’s Music, Says Beef Is Over


CommonIs the beef between Common and Drake already over? Yes, if Common has any say.

The two hip-hop stars have taken shots at each other in the past couple weeks. After Drizzy sent a shot (via a few bars) to the Chi-Town rapper on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin'” mixtape track, Common took things to the next level by dedicating a full verse to the YMCMB rapper via a remix of the same track calling him “Canada Dry.”

This sparked controversy, and got the Internet talking. But, Common seems to be ready to move on.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the rapper had some kind words for Drake, saying that despite the beef he actually likes — and thinks he makes good — music.

“I think he makes good music,” Common said of the Canadian MC. “He’s definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music.”

As far as the disses, Common said he felt he needed to respond after Drake said something about him. “I don’t think I had anything to prove. I just felt like somebody stepped and challenged me, so I had to step into the ring. He said some things that I thought were directed at me, so I had to address it back.”

However, Common is done with the beef … unless Drake retaliates.

“I feel like I said what I had to say, and I’m just going to let it be at that point,” Common stated. “Now, if something else happens, then I’ll just have to act accordingly. But right now, I feel like, man, I said what I needed to say about this situation on record.

“It’s nothing like, ‘Oh man, it’s so personal.’ It’s just the art of rhyming, man. The art of rhyming,” he continued.
