There’s just something about Erykah Badu that is hypnotizing. It’s no wonder rapper Common was devastated when they broke up. In a recent interview on The Combat Jack Show, Common opened up about their former relationship and “Badu Box.” We hear it’s all it’s cracked up to be!

“I was in my hotel room on tour… and she called me and was like, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be in this relationship no more. I’m liking somebody else,’” Common laughed Tuesday while visiting the “Wendy Williams Show.” –

“Yeah, the ‘Badu Box’ is real. Man, it could take you to another universe,” he revealed. “Nah but seriously, she…that’s when you meet somebody that’s real special and you’re like, ‘Man, this woman’s got…she got something else, man. It ain’t just sex, it ain’t just the looks. It’s just man something that’s kind of like spirit-wise where you’re like, ‘This woman got something else.’ And that’s all it is.”

He added, “For me, I was just like, I appreciated her from all those aspects. Her being super-talented, her being real fresh and be into new shit I just wasn’t up on. And at the same token, that whole spiritual thing was like…and it’s real.”

Erykah is no joke!
