The Sundance Film Festival became the unlikely centre of hip-hop’s latest beef when Drake and Common came to town.
Rapper-turned-actor Common was promoting his role in upcoming family drama LUV, while actor-turned-rapper Drake was performing at one of the many late-night parties.
Over the past few months, Common and Drake have been making headlines as they have battled it out lyrically. The beef started with Common’s ‘The Dreamer, The Believer‘ album which featured a track called ‘Sweet.’ Drake took offense to the track, and although Common originally stated that he wasn’t specifically talking about Drake, the feud began.
Common has given several interviews during the festival . This is what he had to say about the Common and Drake beef: “I feel like I said everything I really needed to say on the record. I just looked at it as like ‘Hey, it’s just a hip-hop battle.”
“The time to talk is on record as far as I’m concerned. If we in the ring, then we just handle our business in the ring.”
