Petty Kruger: 50 Cent Trolls Common After Erykah Badu Confession

50 Cent doesn’t discriminate when it comes to his IG slander. Even conscious rappers are catching his petty.

As spotted on HipHopDX the rapper turned master troll has a new victim in his sights. Fif put Common, who is pretty much a friend to all, on the chopping block with his latest Instagram post. The Power mogul made light of his recent admission that he took his breakup with songstress Erykah Badu very hard. So much so he slipped into an emotional whirlwind and couldn’t eat.

His confession was like feeding raw steak to a lion and as expected 50 wasted no time. The post featured a photo of the Chicago MC with “The Male Vivica FOX” right under. Curtis’s caption was equally as brutal. “😆I be telling b****es do not give me no Erykah Badu booty. 👀just a little bit, don’t give me the whole thing 😟OK.”

For those not in the know Badu has a long history of putting it on her boyfriends to the point they switch up their entire essence (see Andre 3000). The Vivica Fox mention is a reference that 50 had his ex girlfriend in her feelings after he broke it off with her.

Common most recently opened up about many different areas of his life in his autobiography Let Love Have The Last Word. You can view the post below.

50 Cent Calls Common The Male Vivica A. Fox + Trolls Him Over Erykah Badu Breakup

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)

Happy 48th Birthday to Erykah Badu!

Born on this date in 1971 in Dallas, Texas as Erica Abi Wright, soul singing icon Erykah Badu has morphed into one of the most dynamic and impactful entertainers of the past two decades. Ms. Badu’s debut album Baduizm became a euphemism for a woman’s ability to control her man with her sexuality besides the fact that the project went triple platinum.

Badu has birthed children for rap giants D.O.C., Jay Electronica and Andre 3000, respectively and maintained a long-standing relationship with rapper/actor Common in her personal life along with dropping five full-length solo albums that are always guaranteed groundbreaking in any genre of music.

Salute to the Queen on her degree day today and much more hereafter!

Jay Electronica Homeschools Erykah Badu’s Mini-Me & Teaches World History

Jay Electronica

Roc Nation rapper Jay Electronica is taking a unique approach to raising his child. The hip-hop veteran is reportedly homeschooling his and ex-girlfriend Erykah Badu’s mini-me.

Last night, Badu went to Instagram to speak on the value of parents homeschooling their kids and credited Elect for teaching multiple lessons.

♥Home School Post ❤ Peace to homeschooling parents and students. Sending BIG love to you from us. Good job. Home school. They deserve it. And to those of you who have been there and know when to get additional help and are following your hearts while paying attention to the needs of your little ones …praises to you as well. It’s not an easy task. All my children have been thru Badu school. They know the drill. The whole family gotta get involved. When Big bro comes home from college (Botany major) he teaches botany and psychology. When daddy is home @jayelectronica he teaches world / planetary history and geography. When big sis (9th grade ) is done with her work she teaches art and French. I’ll handle the Physics, Math, Lit, Sociology, Health science , Astronomy, Astrology, Meditation, Religion, Economics, Art appreciation, Film making, Quantum Science, Molecular Physics… etc… But our main focus is human compassion or Matters of the heart. 💗We are guiding Mars to see the world through her own lens. She will understand that she must experience the consequences of her own choices and judgements. It is not necessary that she becomes a mini erica or mini jay. After all, we are still becoming. Lots of love . ( thank you to all my friends that lend a hand from their areas of expertise !! i appreciate you ) -eb

Last fall, Electronica shocked fans by reactivating his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Back in mid-September, Jay Elect pulled the plug on both his Twitter and Instagram pages after firing off some disses toward rap star Eminem.

Jay Electronica is no longer on Twitter. His disappearance follows a pair of barbed tweets aimed at Eminem last Friday (September 14). In the tweets, Jay had criticized Em’s “Killshot” lyrics, which allude to the unfounded rumor that Diddy ordered Tupac’s death. An Instagram account associated with Jay has also been deleted.

Taraji P. Henson & Erykah Badu Say Their R. Kelly Comments Were Taken Out Of Context [Video]

Paramount Pictures' 'What Men Want' Premiere - Arrivals

Taraji P. Henson and Erykah Badu are trying to do some damage control after their recent comments concerning R. Kelly. According to Henson and Badu, their statements were taken out of context.

In case you missed it, Henson was dragged after she looked up #MuteHarveyWeinstein on Instagram to compare the results of Weinstein’s hashtag with that of R. Kelly’s. Noticing #MuteHarveyWeinstein came up practically empty while #MuteRKelly was widespread, the actress wrote “Hmmmm.” Social media immediately came for the Empire aunty—of course no one’s trying to “mute” a behind-the-scenes film producer…he doesn’t do music and he isn’t on the radio. Also, there’s a case against Weinstein as well as two documentaries about his predatory behavior…it’s not like his crimes are being swept under the rug. And furthermore, why the need to compare R. Kelly to Weinstein in this moment? Yes, of course Weinstein should be put away, but R. Kelly victims also deserve justice regardless of what’s going on with anyone else’s case. If you’re not defending or normalizing R. Kelly why try to shift focus onto someone else? What did that “Hmmmm” mean exactly?

Well, Henson says she was only making an observation…however misguided it may have been.

“I actually was just making an observation. I never tried to say anything,” she said during an interview with the Associated Press. “I was just making an observation, and people know what side I’m on. Why would I launch a foundation for mental health in an African-American community for people to go somewhere to talk to somebody about traumatic experiences and then side with the predator?”

“Does that make sense?,” she continued. “So that backlash pretty much came from people that want to see me fail anyway, because there’s no way if you follow my career, you got that confused.”

When asked if she was surprised at the backlash, Henson reportedly responded “Sort of, kind of, you know. Humans are fickle…anything you say or do can be taken totally out of context.”

Meanwhile, Henson’s What Men Want co-star Badu has been under fire after she asked the audience to pray for R. Kelly during a concert in Chicago and seemed to very clearly say she would love the alleged predator unconditionally.

“There’s no deep meaning to it, you know. Unconditional love is love. Love is love,” Badu told the Associated Press. “And I didn’t just pray for R. Kelly: I wanted to send energy out to everybody involved, everybody that’s hurting as a result of being hurt, is what I said. And I just thought it was weird that people thought that was weird. Why is that weird that I want love for people?”

Badu says her words weren’t an indication that she supports his bad choices. “That I support his bad choices?,” she continued. “I don’t know him. I don’t know who he is. It’s just my default setting, you know. And social media, as a default setting, is to attack.”

After their explanations, do you think their comments were taken out of context? Watch the clip above.

Sparkle Drags Erykah Badu, Taraji P. Henson for Seemingly Defending R. Kelly

Sparkle isn’t feeling Erykah Badu and Taraji P. Henson’s initial comments in regards to R. Kelly’s alleged sexual allegations.

The singer says responses like theirs is harmful and prevents other victims from coming forward. Sparkle, who participated in the jarring docuseries, says the Black community needs to give the Pied Piper tough love, not unconditional love like Badu suggested.

On the contrary, Taraji’s comparison of the #MuteRKelly hashtag to Harvey Weinstein’s is senseless according to Sparkle because an abuser is an abuser. Period.

Press play below to hear why the former-R. Kelly collaborator felt Badu and Taraji’s comments were “disheartening” to Black women.

Erykah Badu And ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Producer Dream Hampton Clash Over Documentary

Erykah Badu has been seriously criticized for what appears to be support for disgraced singer R. Kelly, while the Surviving R. Kelly doc’s executive producer Dream Hampton has publicly tried to out Badu for what she viewed as taking Kelly’s side in the sexual abuse allegations put out against him.

One Twitter user claimed that the Baduizm singer turned down being in the docuseries and even worked with Kelly in the past, but Badu denied those allegations, while Hampton tried to confirm the claims.
