Pops Squashed Beef? New Report Says Drake's Father Stepped In At Grammys To Stop Problem From Escalating With Common. Rappers Reportedly Dead Issues


For a story that has gotten so much media attention not much has really happened between Drake and Common. The two never went toe to toe on wax as many fans had hoped because Drake thought Common was using him for record sales.


Then came the reports that the two had a verbal altercation at the Grammys. I mean is that really how fans wanted to see the beef end, in a shouting match?


HipHopWired has published a story today confirming the two rapper's came face to face backstage at the Grammys and a small amount of drama did pop off, but according to the report it was Drake's father, Dennis Graham, who intervened, not Lil Wayne as had previously been reported. Read the full story below.

Hip-Hop Wired has learned that Common and Drake actually squashed their beef at the Grammys, clearing up previous reports that the two rappers almost got into a violent altercation. 


Apparently, both Drake and Common's entourages happened to be in the same area at the end of the Grammy red carpet, near where artists were being distributed their VIP credentials to enter the Staples Center, according to a source in the latter's camp. Common felt it was awkward for two men that had exchanged words in song to be in the same vicinity without saying anything to each other. With the two eyeballing each other intensely, Common asked Drake, "What's up?"


Drake responded with a "What's up?" of his own, and Common tried to approach him with the intent of speaking to the Toronto rapper one on one. However, Drake's security and other members of his entourage defensively intervened in his progress. Allegedly Drake said, "Yo, I grew up listening to this dude, what's the problem?," while his security was telling Common, "We respect you, this isn't necessary." But Common wanted to talk to Drake "man to man," angered that two rivals would cross paths and just not speak.


One of the members of Drake's crew turned out to be his father, Dennis Graham, who told Common the two artists "need to cut this out, y'all are better than this." According to the source, the elder Graham's intervention made Com change his approach, with cooler heads prevailing and the two rappers eventually going off to the side and speaking to each other alone. Holding true to the words he said in an interview moments before, Common and Drake exchanged pounds, and told everyone in their respective camps the beef had been squashed.


Police did arrive after hearing about a commotion, however they did not need to intervene with the situation already having been settled. Also, according to our source, no other YMCMB artists were present, which could have aided in the situation not getting out of hand.
