Before he was an Oscar winner and a Microsoft pitchman, Common was a rapper who was beefing with Drake.

It was 2011 and Common smacked Drake with "Sweet," and Drake struck back with "Stay Schemin." Serena Williams was somewhat in the middle of all of it.

But that was a long time ago, and now Common explains that he's good with Drizzy.

“When we had that beef, that beef was for real for me. It was real for him,” Common said on Big Boy's Neighborhood. “But we saw each other at the Grammys and it was like a little tension, and then it was just like a real honest talk that we had about like his respect for me. I was letting him know I thought he was a really dope and talented artist and we kinda of just squashed it then.

It was like, what are we even beefing over at this point. This ain't where we want our lives to go, so let me just chill out on that," he continued. "So I gotta give like him a lot of respect ‘cause he handled that like a grown man should. He looked me in my eye and told me, ‘Look, I really respect your music.’ I felt bad when he was dissing me."

Check out his words at about 20 minutes:
