Remember that beef between Common and Drake a few years ago? Well…Common is finally admitting that it was over his ex-girlfriend Serena Williams. Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson speaks on the Illuminati. Deets inside…
Common is known for having a pretty laid back demeanor. So when news surfaced that he had “beef” with Drake, a few eyebrows were raised. Back in 2012, Common dissed Drake twice! Once on a track titled “Sweet” and the second time on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin’ (Remix).”
In a following interview with MTV, Common dished on Drake taking offense to his track “Sweet” saying, “He opened his mouth and said some things, so if that’s what he want—all that subliminal [talk]…you could do that too, but say it now.”
Shortly after the release of “Sweet,” Drizzy responded to Common on the original Rick Ross track “Stay Schemin.” Then, Common clapped back on the remix.
NOW…The Chi-town rapper is opening up about what initially started their war on wax. And it’s over his ex-girlfriend, tennis champ Serena Williams! During an interview with VLAD TV, the “Kingdom” rapper revealed he felt disrespected by Drake and that’s why he came for him. He said,
“I think it was an emotional thing. I was feeling like…the Drake, Serena situation. I didn’t know what was going on with that. And I didn’t know if he was throwing things, shots at me. Like you know, this my ex. We have gone our separate ways. So unfortunately the war might have been over a girl even though at the time I never said that. It was more or less…like do you respect me? Cause I actually like you as an artist.”
Common said he was glad their “beef” didn’t escalate to anything physical and that he’s a very talented artist who has something to contribute to Hip Hop. He said they chopped it up face-to-face and it ended on a good note. Good for them.
Common is dropping a new album titled Nobody’s Smiling on July 22nd.
Jennifer Hudson is trekking it all across the nation as she promotes her newly titled album JHUD.
Recently the “Walk It Out” singer spoke to DC’s Majic 102.3, where she talked about people accusing her of being a part of the Illuminati. You know, about the conspiracy theory that every successful person is part of some group called the Illumanati where they had to scrafice something sacred in order to reach a high level of success.
During the interview with Adimu, JHud opened up about how hurtful and upsetting it is when people try to discredit her work and chalk it up to a non existing factor. Especially when she works so hard to make good music from a positive place.
”I think people find a way to discredit people in everything you do. Nothing is ever what it really is. At the end of the day, we all work hard for what we get and what we do just like anyone else. And it’s unfair that some people would be that cruel to impose such negativity on things that is done from a positive place. It’s very hurtful and extremely upsetting. Especially coming from a Christian standpoint.
“Every time I hear stuff like that, I’m like ‘You will not take the credit for God’s work and give it to Satan! Not on my watch.’”
She still didn’t give an official date for her new album but, revealed it will drop in August.
