Over the weekend, legendary poet Dr. Maya Angelou expressed dissapointment over the opening track off Common’s new The Dreamer, The Believer album. While she agreed to contribute to the song, she was upset over the N-word being used on the song. While Common admitted to never mentioning that detail, he clarified the misunderstanding on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday with Dr. Maya Angelou phoning in.
