Answering-machine messages are sometimes dismissed as a lazy skit cliché, but one could argue that they provide a sense of everyday life that most people can relate to. Take this morning-after lament from one of Common's buddies, for instance. Nearly all of us at one point or another have received a call from a close friend talking about the previous night's festivities.
For dudes, it's often about the female their amigo hung out with. Here, Com's bud voices his particular displeasure in that the girl from the club that he managed to get back to his place wanted to watch movies rather than give up the drawers. "This ain't no muthafuckin' cinema, bitch!" he says, and every dude who's ever had blue balls can relate.
