According to Bossip, Rapper Common, recently shared some dark details of his past, in his memoir.  The Grammy award winner recalls it happening to him when he was just 9 or 10 years old .   The rapper recalls,  “I was excited for a road trip I was about to take with my family. My mother; my godmother, Barbara; her son and my godbrother Skeet; and his relative, who I’ll call Brandon…”

Once they all arrived at his Aunt’s house in Cleveland, Common says he and Brandon were made to share a bed together one night of the trip. “At some point I felt Brandon’s hand on me,” he writes. “I pushed him away. I don’t remember saying a whole lot besides ‘No, no, no’…He kept saying ‘It’s okay, It’s okay,’ as he pulled down my shorts and molested me. After he stopped he kept asking me to perform it on him. I kept repeating ‘No’ and pushing him away,” he continued. “I felt a deep and sudden shame for what happened.”

We love us some Common.  His book, Let Love Have The Last Word, is out now!  Click HERE to get your copy.
