Common Speaks On Beef With Drake On Hip-Hop Nation


Last night Common spoke with Sirius Hip-Hop Nation about his current situation with Drake. Many people are speculating what exactly is the root of their rift, whether it was Serena Williams, the “So Sweet” record itself, or just a random reach.

“Well, the song ‘Sweet,’ for me, it was a song where I was really talking about man, Hip-Hop…a lot of the softer side of Hip-Hop is just being the example of what people think Hip-Hop is,” says Common. “To me, you can express yourself in many different ways, but me I was just missing that hardcore Hip-Hop, that raw Hip-Hop sound, and I was just talking about it. I was saying, man, the song ‘Sweet’ was cats out there doing sweet music. Dude must have took offense to it, then he came out and said some things, and once he said something on record, I just said something back on record.”
