Common Confirms He Beefed With Drake Over Serena Williams
Well after years of denying the obvious, Common has confirmed that their real issue was not Drizzy’s lack of Hip Hop street cred, it was actually a woman—-Serena Williams to be exact.
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.”
Luckily ‘Rena’s moved on from both of them...
