Common Confirms Drake Beef Is "Over," Sends Prayers To Whitney Houston's Family

Common comments on the Drake beef being over and says he sends prayers to Whitney Houston's family.

On the Grammy red carpet, Common had time to reflect on his recent feud with Drake. The Chicago emcee made it clear that the beef is over now, adding that he's glad the two can move forward. 

"It was all in the art of Hip Hop but it's kind of over now," he explained to Fuse. "It's over. But it was all in the art of Hip Hop. He said some things to me so I had to say some things back... I wouldn't say [he started it] but I know I heard something that I felt was directed to me so I addressed it. That's all. But you know, thank God we were able to move forward from it and all is good."

When asked why he traded shots with Drake when he sings and is of a younger generation, Com responded that any emcee is fair game. 

"We all emcees. No matter what your age or where you from, when you step in the ring? It's like when you see basketball players playing, they don't be like, 'This guy.' If you playing against me or challenge me at any point, I'm an emcee. I like emceeing. I love it. So, that's what I go for." 

Once talk of the feud ended, Com was asked to comment on the passing of Whitney Houston. While acknowledging that Houston would have a last impact on music, he also shared that he'd rather not comment too much. 

"I really feel like not even being able to comment because her family are probably going through things that we don't even know. I just really want to say love to her and God bless her soul and send love and as many prayers to her family." 

The video of the clip can be seen below.

    Damn a good beef would have been HELLA good for me. We haven't had a good major emcee battle since Jay-Z and Nas.

    Nobody won. Move on with your lives. That said, Whitney's family doesn't have time to mourn. Her daughter's already in rehab, so unless they want a repeat, Bobby better cancel The New Edition tour and be a father for once.

    I gotta get more of that young money dick. Shit feels like ice cream in my asshole.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Drake lost.

    Okay for all the young un-educated hiphop fans. Let me explain what this interview means for the culture of hiphop. One, Common won, sorry but true. Two, interviewer made it clear Drake is R&b. Three, Drake, Rick Ross, and most of Young Money wasn't relevant last night. At all! You have just seen the rebirth of hiphop and the downfall of Young Money. It begins now. I know it sounds crazy to say but if you are really into the hiphop culture and you know the history of hiphop then we hhave all seen this before. I promise you, next you'll see Drake make hiphop records again, lil wayne do songs with big names to stay relevant and Rick Ross. I promise you, this is his last year. I love hiphop...

    Used to be a Common fan before this beef but he just made himself look stupid here. He just made himself sound like a jealous washed-up immature hypocrite. Its pathetic. Calling Drake soft is like calling Jay-Z rich - it is irrelevant and obvious. Plus his rhymes on Stay Schemin border on corny. Drake did the smartest thing, just ducking it entirely and calling him out for trying to get record sales.

      Cudder. Mostly Agreed. Yes, lots of bros think Drake is soft. But its like, everyone knows dude is soft. Dude is light-skin and from Canada - both those characteristics alone will get the soft label regardless. So calling-out Drake as soft to me, just kind of reveals the deception - its a phony beef artifically-created. I mean, Drake does not try to act hard at all. His music is about love songs and breakups. The whole "catch a body" line is just so exagerrated. Who doesnt say, when frustrated, "I wanna kill somebody" -its not literal. Being gangsta is not Drake's lane - never has been. He has never tried to pretend to be gangsta or rep thug life. But Common just tries to bait him - no one wants to be called a pussy- no matter who you are and that is how Common pathetically tried to bait Drake. In interviews, Common acts all understated but on the actual tracks like "Sweet", "Stay Schemin" - he sounds very angry, agitated and like he is ready to physically fight with Drake. But over what? When KRS-One went aggressively at Prince Be - it was totally understandable. Prince Be dissed him. Common vs. Ice Cube? Understandable. It was real. LL Cool J vs. Canibus? Same shit. This aint no real hip-hop moment. Its manufactured BS. Lost some respect for Common for this.

      how common gon call drake soft when his boy had a album called 808 & heartbreaks?

    • Cudder

      I agree bout the rhymes part.. but even if Drake being soft is obvious, the idea is that someone had to say it. nobody needs to restate that Jay is rich, that IS irrelevant. but not everybody thinks Drake is what he is, and Common said what a lotta niggas are thinking.

      co sign brah. sadly most these niggas live unfulfilling lives. quality music isnt good enough for them. they need the satisfaction of knowing that others are in conflict as they always are. its funny how the bloggers went harder and took it more personally than the actual participants. says alot

  • DutchWeazel

      How are your album sales doing? Are you serious youngster? Lonnie is about making money beyond hip hop. Diversifying into movies and such. Grow up young man! YMCMB! That's hilarious! Did you see Wayne performing with Chris Brown and that Dj? That was hilarious! Yeah he was scared, off who? Drake and Wayne? C'mon man. The beef was wack. I wouldn't consider that beef at all.
