Rapper Common recently appeared on The Breakfast Club, where he talked about love, marriage, and his exes, including Erykah Badu, Serena Williams & Taraji Henson.
“The hood knows what it is. Erykah got something with her, she got something special. Erykah is a raw girl, she got a lot to her. She’s from the hood, point blank. She’s just one of those people from the hood that’s artsy, artistic, spiritual, she’s got a lot to her,” he said about his former flame.
Common also addressed his breakup with Williams and whether the tennis star had moved on to Drake after they called it quits. He admitted there was some beef between him and Drake and even confronted Williams about the new relationship, but they were able to hash it out eventually.
“It’s like once I’ve experienced that person its like, man, sometimes life goes on,” he said. “I can’t say I never would go back but Serena and Erykah were the most serious relationships that I had as an adult and after, it’s one of those things, it’s like, ‘I have to move forward.’ It was real love right there. Both of those women I could’ve married. I was like if I’m not supposed to be there, we’re just supposed to be friends.”
