Common Confirms Old Beef With Drake Was Over Serena Williams


Do you remember when common and Drake were going at each other with musical subliminals and a confrontation at the 2012 Grammys? After all this time, Common confirms what we all knew, it was over Serena Williams, his ex and at the time, the object of Drake’s admiration.


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 on songs like “Sweet” and his “Stay Schemin’” freestyle.

“I think that was, for me, an emotional thing. I was feeling 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.”

Don’t get it confused, these men have egos, and they absolutely don’t want to see the next hottest in his field snatching his ex-girlfriend.

Speaking of, is Drake still a tennis fan? We know he loves the WNBA- or at least Skylar Diggins – now. But when’s the last time he attended a match?
