Common Reveals That His Breakup With Erykah Badu Taught Him

#DXCLUSIVE: The Chi-Town Hip-Hop fixture also spoke about the observation of Kanye West winning multiple Grammy awards as she walked away with nothing.

Boulder, CO – Neo-soul goddess Erykah Badu and Hip Hop luminary Common date from 2000 to 2002. After they broke up, Common did a spiritual search and realized that there was something strange in the way it behaved during that time. During a speech at The University of Colorado-Boulder, the past month, the Chi-Town legend explains what he learned from Badu.

"I discovered that I do not truly believe in me with all your heart with every bite of food that I had in my body and I've discovered that through a breakup," she told a crowd.

While Common nursed her broken heart, she began to read books about self-exploration and came to a conclusion.

"I've learned that you can never dim the light," he said. "His light is created for you to be in this world and put the light on a lamp stand so that any person who walks in the roomwill to see that light. Turn off our light for many reasons.
