No Beef Between Common and Maya Angelou on Song Collaboration

Angelou Calls in to 106 & Park [VIDEO] "I will not be divided...", Common talks about it with Hot 97's Angie Martinez

In an article titled "Rapper N-bombs poet pal" that appeared in the New York Post yesterday, Maya Angelou supposedly told the newspaper that she’s horrified that one of her biggest fans, the rapper Common, put her on a song peppered with the “N” word.

But now it appears the Post took some liberties within the article on Angelou's expression of uncomfortableness in Common’s use of the N-Word on his single “The Dreamer.” The poet cleared up the issue on BET's "106 & Park" during Common’s appearance on the show.

She said that the issue had not caused a rift between her and the Chicago rapper. “I don’t think the word disappointment quite makes it, I was surprised,” Dr. Angelou began. “I know that Common is brilliant. He may in fact be close enough to be called a genius—I’m not sure—I know that we are all in process, and young artists are in process.”

Common appeared on the Angie Martinez show on Hot 97 before the call in to 106 & Park and referred to Maya Angelou as a mother figure to him and said she was enthused about being on his album.
