Common's Sense

Bitch In You - Common

(Yeah for your nation...
for your nation...)

[Verse 1]
A bitch nigga wit an attitude named Cube
Step to Com wit a feud
Now what the fuck I look like dissing a whole coast
You ain't made shit dope since AmeriKKKa's Most
Wanted to cease from the Midwest to the East
On the dick of the East for your 1st release
Your lease is up at the crib house niggaz get evicted
And videos wit white boys talking you get Wicked

Natural Born Killa, nigga you natural born God
Look, read listen, got the nerve to say you rob
Hyprocrite, I'm filling out your Death Certificate
Slanging bean pies and St Ide's in the same sentence
Shoulda repented, on the 16th of October
Get some beats besides George Clinton to rock over
Rap career is over, better off acting
What trouble I see, you're managing WC and Wack 10
You backed in to a four corner hustla
Lying on your dick, said you was fuckin her

Use Higher Learning, don't take my words out of text
Went from gangsta to Islam to the dick of Das EFX
It'll take the Nation of Millions to Hold Me Back
From giving you mouth shots or hit wit the pipe Ralph got
When sucker ain't around, it's your Friday, it was good
I wasn't salty, she was wit the Boyz N the Hood

Chorus:
I see the bitch in you when you don't speak your mind
The bitch in you, looking me in my eyes lyin
I see the bitch in you, simply hard, you find
The bitch in you but yo it's coming out

[Verse 2]
Up on this rap shit, Cube, I'm calling out
I break in and smack niggaz that's in the Slaughterhouse
This ain't no East coast, West coast, none of the above
I'm from Chi, I went to Cali, niggaz gave me love
There's a thin line between the fake and the real
Grafted ass nigga, I see through your Glass Shield


Had skills once upon a time on this project, yo
I'm a have ta wreck a Ho'shea
I heard a ho say you her favorite rapper
(So what) so I had to slap her, ugn
And violate you, a Muslim drinking brew
Your nigga ain't no Mack 10, he's a 22

I seen you, you ain't say shit to ATL
Cube, I like that diamond charm, I might cuff it, then sell
It out, like you sold Kam and Threat
A year ago, you wasn't talking shit about the West
Guess you knew your shit was done plus the one got you cable
Hoo Bangin, you ain't banging shit but the table
And the Circle Madd, ain't got no choice but to fight
Ain't none of y'all muthafukas got a chance on the mic
Anytime you come out, yo, I'm a talk about you
Until you let that bitch in you, walk up out you
Any last words before I hit the switch
From the immortal words of one, a bitch is a bitch

Chorus

I'm not much of a rap music listener but I am feeling Common. I'm assuming he dissed Ice Cube because Cube dissed him first. Who knows? I'm not really into that East Coast/West Coast shit. Then again, Common's from the Chi-town so technically neither is he. *LOL*.

Brother is so fine. I especially noticed that when watching this movie I rented called Smoking Aces. Actually I rented that one originally because of Jeremy Piven. I had an older entry where I was singing Piven's praises. But there was plenty of eye candy in that movie besides Piven, most notably to me Common, also known as Lonnie Rashid Lynn.

I still remember Common from his guest appearance on UPN's (now CW's) show Girlfriends. In the episode, he was reciting some poetry basically dogging Lynn. I still remember his scathing words to her when she rejected having a one night stand with him (she's crazy...I would've jumped him):

" I had me some Lynn last night." he recited upon realizing that Lynn was interested in a celibate guy. He was basically calling out her name in front of everyone and soiling her in front of her celibate guy. Considering the lyrics to his song above, it shouldn't be surprising that Common's word can cut to the core.

Hemingway I was looking at some pictures of him online tonight and couldn't help but notice his features. He kinda has a long face but he knows how to dress. Plus I love his voice. He seems like a smart guy too. He almost reminds me of the rapper Mos Def in terms of intelligence and basic common sense. Speaking of which, Mos Def was in the movie Brown Sugar and Common had some songs on the soundtrack from that movie.

I get the impression that he's got lots of talent, even though I don't really listen to rap. But I do remember him from a couple movies he's done over the years. Who knows? Maybe his star might grow even brighter. I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing him featured in another movie sometime soon.

Even more Common...:-)

man don't be fooled by that poetry, Common is just as hood as Twista. homeboy just has a wider range of topics to flow about.

and Mos Def's fertile ass needs a condom surgically attached to his penis. kids got like 4 or 5 crumb snatchers. better hit that studio!

Common is hot. He has some fairly radical views on sexuality and interracial dating, but Aside from that, he's cool with me.

Common's been one of my favorite MCs for a while now. He's like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, and Black Thought of The Roots, in that they have the ability to rap about anything from issues in the black community to politics to religion to love. You can throw any type of music at them and they'd probably be able to flow over it. It's hip-hop with substance. I'm just glad Common is finally getting his props. One of my college buddies looks like he could damn near be Common's twin.
