SERENA & COMMON, TENNIS MEETS HIP-HOP…

In HOT BUTTON TOPIC, SPORTS, TENNIS, WORD ON THE STREET on September 6, 2008 at UTC.59.30.

Serena Williams has a new boyfriend. At least, its new to me. I heard reports that she was dating the double threat Rapper, & actor Common. Though, I just brushed it off because everyone knows the Williams sisters have been poster girls for “Colored Girls who considered dating the Rainbow when brothers weren’t Enough.”

This is an obvious alliteration to the critically acclaimed novel, and play: “For Colored Girls Who considered Suicide When the Rainbow wasn’t Enough.”

Serena & Common seems like a strange couple at first, but when you consider how domineering Richard Williams is in her life, then its plausible to see how she can link with the “conscious’ rappin’ stylings of Common. I mean he & Erykah Badu have been linked in the past, and on the surface there aren’t many parallels between these two sisters.

 

Although, I’m sure happy as hell for Serena. She definitely needs a brother like Common on her team. Strong, Articulate, Respectable, Conscious, and Super Star. Common is one of the very few Hip-Hop artists I’d actually put down my hard earned cash to support. I respect his music, and support his career, he’s been in the game for a while underground. now, he has his mainstream appeal & marketability.
