Even though Common and Kanye don’t share the same views right now, Common said that the relationship between the two artists has not changed. TMZ caught up with Common in West Hollywood, and straight up told them where he stood with label-mate and friend Kanye West.
When TMZ spoke Common, he did not say anything negative about Kanye West. “Kanye, that’s my brother,” Common told TMZ.com. “That’s my family right there, he’s going to do what he chooses to do. I think a lot of the change that we are looking for is going to happen from the people, the powers in the people,” Common said. “It’s going to be us that really galvanizes no matter what color you are, look out for each other, start economically supporting each other, holding politicians accountable, and finding out what’s going on with mass incarceration and changing some of these laws that’s jailing people,” Common continued.
“So you know but to answer your question, Kanye, that’s my guy, that’s my homie and that’s always going to be my brother,” Common added. “Some things he does, that’s what he chooses to do, I know I do the things I know I’m going to do things the way I choose to do them and we’re going to do them together, that’s how love goes.”
