FAMU Alum Common Says He Blackend His Eye Playing Basketball, But Grambling State Alumna Erykah Badu Isn’t Buying It

There’s nothing quite like black love and in particular HBCU love. That’s a fact know that.

Recently rapper Common shared a photo on Instragram explaining that he got a black eye playing basketball. But songstress Erykah Badu, who Common says was his first experience with true love, isn’t here for it and she’s not buying his story at all. Insert heart emoji.

“I got my eye blackened playin 🏀 today,” wrote the rapper on Instgram. “However, the fight must go on!”

“Look like a fisss print to me,” commented Badu in response.

People were like “facts tho.”

“When your friends know the truth,” wrote one Instragram user.

What do you think? Did Common really blackened his eye playing basketball or is there more than meets the eye? Let us know and drop your comment below!
