Rapper/actor Common has extended an offer to fellow rapper/actor Ice Cube, to possibly work on a film together in the future.
The news is significant because the pair had one of the most legendary and well chronicled feuds in Hip-Hop.
Ice Cube and Common went back and forth over Common’s classic song “I Used to Love H.E.R.” from his 1994 album Ressurection.
The track drew the wrath of Ice Cube and his group Westside Connection, who released the track “Westside Slaughterhouse” in 1995, which featured Mack 10 and W.C.
Common then replied the same year, with a scathing diss titled “The B**ch” in Yoo,” which was produced by Pete Rock.
The beef between the two camps grew so intense that it took a sit down with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in 1997 – in the aftermath of the unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. – to successfully diffuse the mounting tension within Hip-Hop.
“Point blank, when Cube and I had beef, I was a fan of his first and foremost, I grew up like loving Cube,” Common told AllHipHop.com. “I still respected him as an artist, but I had to come at him. It’s like a boxer; if somebody challenge you in the ring, you got to go at him. But we all good now, and maybe we can produce a movie together or something.”
