Common shared that he avoids engaging with negative news, including the recent footage of Diddy’s altercation with Cassie, preferring to focus on positivity in his life. In an encounter with TMZ in Beverly Hills, he skillfully steered clear of questions about his relationship status with Jennifer Hudson, redirecting attention to his upcoming collaboration album with Pete Rock.

When asked about his avoidance of Diddy-related news, Common emphasized his commitment to peace and love, a theme reflected in his recent album “A Beautiful Revolution.” While discussions arise regarding Diddy’s potential for redemption, Common refrains from passing judgment, asserting he lacks the authority to cancel anyone.

With a belief in the power of love, Common is dedicated to spreading positivity through his music, a sentiment echoed in his upcoming project with Pete Rock. However, he acknowledges that public sentiment toward Diddy remains strained, especially in light of the Cassie video, indicating a prolonged period of public scrutiny.
