Although Common and Drake are beefing with each other at the moment, Common admits to enjoying Drake's music. In a recent conversation with Rolling Stone, Common says "I think he makes good music. He's definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music."
"I don't think I had anything to prove," Common says. "I just felt like somebody stepped and challenged me, so I had to step into the ring. He said some things that I thought were directed at me, so I had to address it back."
Now Common seems ready to move on: "I feel like I said what I had to say, and I'm just going to let it be at that point," he says. "Now, if something else happens, then I'll just have to act accordingly. But right now, I feel like, man, I said what I needed to say about this situation on record."
He also added that it was nothing personal, just a beef between two rhyme-sayers: "It's nothing like, 'Oh man, it's so personal.' It's just the art of rhyming, man. The art of rhyming!"
