Common: Drake is good

Common has spoken out about his so-called rivalry with Drake.
Is ready to move on from his 'beef' with Drake
One of the greatest rappers in the world has given his competition his seal of approval.

Common, who many in the industry feel is one of the best hip-hop stars of all time, told Rolling Stone that Drake of Young Money fame was a decent rapper who made good music.

"He's definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music," said Common, 39.

It comes after an alleged 'beef' between the two stars, which is a normal phenomenon in hip-hop.

Throughout the genre's history, rivalry between artists like Tupac and Biggie, Jay-Z and Nas, and The Game and Fifty Cent, have created a buzz in the industry.

Of this so-called tension, Common said: "I don't think I had anything to prove.

"I just felt like somebody stepped and challenged me, so I had to step into the ring. He said some things that I thought were directed at me, so I had to address it back."

One of his seminal albums is 2005s Be, which was largely produced by Kanye West.
