Last night, I went to my first (2ND- Saw Erykah Badu my first year in the Chi) concert as an adult- it's amazing what a good paying job and a Master card can do for a brotha- Well, last night I spent 2 hours kicking it with the rymes of Common- I guess I've kind of been sleeping on the brotha because today I went to his website and peeped a few other websites for his lyrics and this cat is deeeepppppp & confusing ...I'm a lil pissed that homophobia is so heightned in hip hop and that Common used to be "fag" this and "fag" that- anyman who uses the word is a moron- that's some shyt I down right hate. but, check this shyt out, Common tried to flip the shyt on his “Between Me, You & Liberation,” Common soberly tells of a friend coming out of the closet to him, and the emotions he experienced while listening.
“So far we’d come, for him to tell me / As he did, insecurity held me / ’Til his spirit yelled help me,” Common rhymes. “How could I judge him? Had to accept him if I truly loved him / No longer, he said, had he hated himself / Through sexuality he liberated himself.”
what the hell is this about- was real excited about this concert until i figured out Common but be a dl homophobe-
