Is The Kendrick Lamar & Drake Battle Done? Who Won?: “I Would Rather See Them Come Together”

During a recent interview on the 7PM In Brooklyn podcast with Camelo Anthony and Mero, Common shared his opinion of the Kendrick Lamar and Drake rap battle.

Common said, “For me, I wasn’t like, ‘This was too far.’ I was like, ‘Damn, this is really incredible battle.'”

He continued, “This battle, to me, was a heavyweight. They was going back and forth…I respected what each one delivered.”

While Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony shared he isn’t a fan of the beef during an interview on The Maikon Show podcast.

Layzie said, “I totally don’t like [Kendrick and Drake beefing] because I’m a fan of both of theirs. I love Drake. I really, really admire Drake. I think his wordplay is immaculate.”

He continued, “The music he put out is dope. I love Kendrick Lamar. Really love Kendrick Lamar. I would rather see them come together as a force as opposed to tearing down.”

He added, “I know a lot of people say [Hip Hop] was built on beef and all that – yeah, cool fine and dandy but I saw what that did to N.W.A. I’m cut from that cloth. I was fortunate enough to be a kid on the block living that life, that story they was telling. Having that be my favorite group and then that time they spent beefing and wasting.”

Layzie Bone continued, “But I don’t feel like… Maybe I’m older. But it’s not a place that I wanna be in because if you really gon’ beef, I think you should try boxing or MMA or something like that. Really get it in and then go have a beer about it.”
