Common Can’t Be Pinned Down Ever. Just Hear Him Alongside Dreezy On No Good (Audio)
When it comes to songs about intimate relationships, Common’s usually thought of as rhyming about the upside. While “I Used To Love H.E.R.” was a metaphoric breakup with Hip-Hop, “The Light” and “I Want You” are remembered as seductive approaches of harmonious love.
On Dreezy’s “No Good,” Common speaks from the perspective of a male MC telling a female that he’s not so bad, when her circles are labeling him no good. Comm employs some interesting images on this cut, fresh several “love below” descriptions, to a good ol’ Pamper/diaper simile. Not many artists would seek out Common Sense to play this role on a song, but how do you think it sizes up in the end?
