Common Has Fun Talking Trash While ‘Sweet’

Posted By on November 4, 2011

     Common recently released his new "Sweet" single from his upcoming "The Dreamer, The Believer" album. The hip hop vet spoke about having fun at the end of the record by talking trash.

"I think what I did was just not put that responsibility of saying, "Man, OK, just because I went to the White House, I can't express that side of me. Or just because I'm doing this brand partnership and because I am speaking to the kids and say, "Do something right," that still don't mean I ain't an adult that feel like, "N*gga, get yo' h*e a** out of here," or I'ma fight when I need to fight. I had to make that decision for myself and part of it was just me being more comfortable in my skin and being like, "I'm a man, I ain't gotta sit around and be worried about what everybody is gon think. I just gotta be who I am, what I am and say what I feel and if that sh*t come out not the right thing, it's not the right thing sometimes. But it's right because it's what I'm feeling and it's true to the art and it's music." (XXL Mag)
