Renaissance woman Dr. Maya Angelou who recites a poem on the opening track of Common’s The Dreamer / The Believer album, ‘The Dreamer’ was upset with the rapper over the use of N-word on the song. She told NY Post this:

“I had no idea that Common was using the piece we had done together on [a track] in which he also used the ‘N’ word numerous times. I’m surprised and disappointed. I don’t know why he chose to do that. I had never heard him use that [word] before. I admired him so because he wasn’t singing the line of least resistance.”

Common appeared on 106 & Park last evening where Dr. Maya Angelou phoned in. Together with Common, she cleared up the controversy & misunderstanding. Afterward, Common spoke on his ‘Sweet’ record and if it was a Drake diss.
