Despite being engaged in a lyrical battle with Drake, Common still respects the “Take Care” rapper as an artist.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Common admitted: “I think he makes good music.”

This isn’t the first battle Common has engaged in (look up his classic Ice Cube diss, “The Bitch in Yoo”), but its refreshing to see he’s clearly keeping things on wax, which is how it should be in hip hop.

Common even added about Drake: “He’s definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music.”
