In ‘Ohh, you don’t say’ news, rapper Common has finally came out and admitted that the cause of his epic beef with Drake was over Serena Williams.
If you forgot, Drake and Common set social media ablaze when the two clashed in 2012 after a series of diss tracks aimed at one another. Common’s threw the gauntlet when he released the track ‘Sweet’ and then in his ‘Stay Schemin’ remix in which he infamously referred to Drake as Canada Dry.
In a recent sit-down interview with VladTv, Common admitted where the whole drama started.
VladTV sat down with legendary Chicago MC Common and asked about the roots of his previous issues with Toronto rapper Drake. The two went back and forth in 2012, and while many speculated it was over a certain woman the two had in “common,” it was never confirmed.
Common admitted during the sit down that it was indeed Serena who sparked the flame which eventually led to him taking shots at the kid from Canada on songs like “Sweet” and his “Stay Schemin’” freestyle.
“I think that was, for me, an emotional thing. I was feeling like..at that time, I think it was the “Drake/Serena situation” I didn’t know what was going on with that. I didn’t know if he was throwing things, shots or anything.
“This is my ex and we kind of going our separate ways. Unfortunately the war might have been over a girl, even if at the time I never said that.”
