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?
