Stories about a Drake/Common confrontation have been trickling in over the last day or so. The two had been involved in a dispute on record that was supposedly deaded after Drake said he wouldn't respond to Common's "Stay Schemin" diss. But according to Billboard and a witness the two came face to face backstage at Sunday's Grammy Award show in Los Angeles and a shouting match ensued.
Publicist Robert Santini of consulting firm PKM*BNC was backstage when the two rappers saw each other for the first time since their war of words started. He tweeted about what he witnessed.
Drummer Questlove of The Roots also tweeted that he saw Common and Drake backstage in the same area.
On Wednesday Santini took to Twitter once again to clarify his previous comments.
"You heard it on this man's twitter first. I was backstage. No physical altercation, just a good verbal one," he wrote. "I threw it up Sun on twitter before any news broke, check the time line. It was just a bunch of hootin & hollering."
Obviously this situation isn't squashed yet. It will be interesting to see if either Common or Drake writes a diss song about what went down.
