Common Talks About Challenges Of Raising Children

The well-known rapper Common gave an interview to "LIVEKellyandRyan." In that interview, he opened up about the dares he faced as a father to raise a teen daughter.

The interview started by admiring Common as her child is a big fan of his music. But on the other hand, Common opened up that her daughter doesn't like his songs. 

She does like music and listens to different themes. Her daughter is very honest to him, so she used to ask him to do better, and if she doesn't like any of his songs, she says it's not as good as Chance

Her daughter loves rapper Chance's music instead of him. Her daughter is also a big fan of Beyoncé.   

As a dad, he tried his best to give her daughter the freedom every teenager deserves. He wanted to be a good dad for her, and she was 18 years old already, and he wanted to be her girl free and open. 

But one time, when her daughter went to Beyonce's concert, she was wearing an outfit that made him a little uncomfortable because it was too open. 

But he didn't say anything to her daughter because he knew that her daughter would do the things that she liked anyway. 

The interviewer understood Common very well because she also had a daughter of his daughter's age, and she knew how challenging it is to raise teen girls. 

She also shared her part of the story about her daughter, saying that she went out home in a lovely dress, but her outfit was completely different when she reached the party. 

So Common knew that stopping her won't be a good idea, so he let her daughter do what she enjoyed.

Despite he didn’t like the rap he brought it for Common. Common went home and listen to the rap song and after two weeks of listening to the rap, he wrote his first ever rap song. 

If his dad didn’t brought him that he wouldn’t have been able to start his rap career. So his dad helped him.
