Common Says Drake Handled Feud ‘Like A Grown Man Should’

Drake has had his share of beefs with several people, one of those being Common.

The rapper and actor recently opened up about his former feud with Drake in an interview with REAL 92.3’s “Big Boy’s Neighbourhood”.

“When we had that beef, that beef was for real for me,” Common said. “It was real for him. We saw each other at the [2012] Grammys and it was like a little tension, and then it was just like a real honest talk that we had about like his respect for me. I was letting him know I thought he was a really dope and talented artist and we just squashed it then.”

The drama started when Common said his song “Sweet” was aimed at Drake. The Canadian rapper then released “Stay Schemin”, in retaliation to which Common replied by rapping over the same song.

“It was like, what are we even beefing over at this point?” he continued. “This ain’t where we want our lives to go, so let me just chill out on that. So I gotta give like him a lot of respect ‘cause he handled that like a grown man should. He looked me in my eye and told me, ‘Look, I really respect your music.’ I felt bad when he was dissing me.”
