Where’s the beef? Not between Common and Drake — at least not anymore.
RapFix [via Toronto Life] reports that the two feuding emcees settled their differencesat the Grammy Awards and were photographed hanging out together at this weekend’s NBA All-Star game. It’s good to see they don’t hold grudges!
Common explained his chat with Drizzy in a recent interview. ”We had a talk, we had a conversation. It was a face-to-face, man-to-man, a positive thing. It was a good conversation,” Common said. “I’ve learned to respect him even more. I already thought he was a talented guy, but just from the conversation we had, I hold even more respect for him.”
So how did the reconciliation start? “We saw each other and the conversation was initiated. It was just a respectful conversation that needed to be had, so he knew that I’m not at him trying to destroy him as a human being,” Common explained. “It was a hip-hop battle to me. I had to put all of those things into hip-hop … I gave him a pound, gave him a boom and it was all love.”
So what was the beef about? Rumors swirled that it revolved around Common’s ex, Serena Williams, but he assures that’s not the case. ”Nah, it wasn’t about Serena,” he said. “First of all, that is a past situation. … But it was more based on the fact that I felt like Drake was taking a couple of shots at me, and saying a couple of things that I felt like were towards me. Once that was said, I felt a little disrespected and it kept going on and I decided to say what I needed to say at that point,” he explained.
“I think first and foremost, he’s a very talented guy and I send much love to him and to continue to do what he’s doing. I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing. It was a good battle, we got it done, it’s done. It’s over. It’s not over any woman.”
We’re glad to see all that imagining came true.
