New York rapper 50 Cent is heartless. The hip-hop veteran has poked fun and weighed-in on fellow rap veteran Common recently coming clean on his past split from ex-girlfriend Erykah Badu.
Fif went to Instagram Sunday and didn’t hold back on the digital savagery.
In a new interview, Common came clean on dealing with the aftermath of splitting from Badu and the immediate impact it had on his life.
“Some of the hardest work I’ve done on myself has been after breakups,” says the star. In the early ’00s he famously dated neo-soul singer Erykah Badu, whom he teamed with on hit singles “The Light” and “Love of My Life.” It was a relationship he’ll never forget. “With Erykah Badu, that was my first love where you’re just open and floating,” he says of the singer he reportedly dated for two years prior to their split in 2002. “When we split, I was 27 or 28. I was in a haze, just going through the motions. It was hard to eat.” (People)
Despite suffering a few heartbreaks, Common also said he’s ready to give love another try.
“Talking about my intimacy avoidance and love addiction was an “aha” moment for me,” he says of traits he’s learned about himself in therapy. “The more you talk, the more you see the patterns you created for yourself.” He adds, “I’m open to a relationship now. I know how to communicate like an adult now. I want to be the best partner I can be.” (People)
Last year, 50 Cent kept it 100 on his e-beef with former girlfriend Vivica A. Fox.
“I wanted to talk to y’all because I looked in the comments and the Vivica A. Fox sht, and the girls will be like, ‘Oh, he must have some bomb dck. It must have been like this.’ Look, first of all, not after 14 years. No. Not after 14 years. Okay, ’cause if a ngga showed up talking about ‘You have some bomb a* pssy,’ after 14 years, 14 years, you’d been have called the police on a ngga. Called your brothers and told your brothers to jump the ngga. Told your mans, ‘Go on downstairs.’ … All that sht for no reason. You would have been into all that crazy sht because the girls act like it ain’t nothing when they do some sht like that.’ But if a guy do something like that, come on, you know what time it is. You’re gonna be like, ‘Something wrong with him after 14 years.'” (Instagram)
