Common Recalls Him And His Mom Being Kidnapped By His Father At Gunpoint

Book: One Day It’ll All Make Sense

Year: 2011

What happened? Simliar to LL Cool J’s father, Common’s pops was trying to win his mom back in a crazy ordeal. Common’s father held his mother at gunpoint and drove her handcuffed to the steering wheel across the country to Seattle. Meanwhile, baby Common sat in the backseat. Com’s mom eventually pulled a fast one on Com’s dad by drugging his soda with pills that she got him to buy for her.

Complex says: You got to be slick to drug someone. But to get someone to buy you the drugs you plan to drug them with? That's some Jedi Mind trick shit.
