Grammy-winning rapper Common recently talked about Kanye West‘s relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian and why KimYe are happily in love with one another these days.
Although Ye’s free time has declined since officially hooking up with Kim K, Common said Mr. West still comes through to hang with his G.O.O.D. Music family.
“I’m real happy for him because Ye is a good brother and I think he really wants a good family right now,” Common said in an interview. “[He wants] to have a great family and Kim is, man, Kim is a sweet girl. She’s a pretty cool girl, so, I love it. He been with his lady, you know how it is, when you’re with your lady, you’re chilling. [laughs] But he still kicks it with the squad, man, when necessary. [laughs]” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
A few weeks back, the Chicago rap veteran dished out some baby advice for KimYe.
“You gon’ see the world differently but those experiences will come to them,” he says. “There’s nothing I can tell them specifically on how it’ll be but I send my love and congratulations to them.” He also passed along an insider tip about dealing with the sleepless nights of baby wailing. “Somebody I worked with was telling me how you [could] allow your kid to cry for a night or two without going in there and they adjust to it.” (VIBE)
He previously noted how special of a couple Kanye and Kim make together.
“Oh man, they are great — they are a great match,” said Common, one of Kanye’s best pals and musical partners, when asked about the famous romance during the Season 2 premiere of AMC’s Hell On Wheels. So what makes Kimye a match made in reality star-rapper heaven? Their love, of course. “Love is the biggest key to a good match,” he said. “I think they have that.” (Wet Paint)
According to recent reports, the expecting couple are plotting to purchase numerous homes in high-profile cities.
An $11,000,000 mansion in Bel Air might be enough for some people, but not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West … because TMZ has learned they have their sights set on buying THREE other multi-million dollar mansions across the globe. As TMZ first reported, KK and KW plunked down a huge chunk of change to build a 14,000-square-foot pad in an über-private, gated community in Bel Air, CA. But sources close to the couple tell TMZ they aren’t stopping there. We’re told they plan to buy homes in New York, Miami and Paris too — and, no it’s not a coincidence those are all centers of the fashion industry. Also, the Kardashians have DASH stores in all, but Paris. (TMZ)
