Legendary poet Maya Angelou has publicly chastised rapper Common over his track “The Dreamer,” from his album The Dreamer, The Believer.

Maya Angelou, who wrote the poem contained on “The Dreamer,” was offended by Common’s lyrics on the track.

She was especially offended at Common’s usage of the “N-word.”

“I had no idea that Common was using the piece we had done together on [a track] in which he also used the ‘N’ word numerous times,” Maya Angelou told The New York Post.

Maya Angelou said that she was “surprised and disappointed” and that she had never heard Common use the word.

“I don’t know why he chose to do that. I had never heard him use that [word] before. I admired him so because he wasn’t singing the line of least resistance,” Maya Angelou said.

    Maya, everyday people use the N word, Common aint no different. As a matter of fact I heard him call your girl Oprah “nigga” when they went to lunch and she ate off his plate.

    She took a wing he had counted on his plate, and he said “nigga get your own 10 piece, hell”
