Oprah hasn’t always had nice things to say about hip-hop, so when Common curved her high five after winning an Oscar we took it as a win for the culture. The “Glory” rapper clarified the incident while on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, claiming the diss was unintentional and says him and the female mogul discussed what happened over the phone. Common says Oprah and him joked around about the curve that’s definitely a conversation we would have loved to be a fly on the wall for. Watch the infamous occurrence above and his interview below.
