So spiritual. I love that song Tyrone. I think she and Common made a cute couple. Didn't they have a little one together?

Andre doesn't care if Seven acts Feminine. He leaves his child in Dallas while he is busy screwing wh*res in his Buckhead loft.

Seven BenjaminJun 9, 2011

Dear SEVEN BENJAMIN, We all hope that you do not end up like your father who has low self esteem and disrespects himself and women. We hope you have some dignity and get married to one woman one day instead of trying to build your self worth by bedding groupies like your father Andre 3000. Your grandfather Lawrence Walker was never around and your grandmother Sharon Benjamin Hodo had to raise your crooked dad all by herself. Look what happened. Now your own father, Andre 3000, can't move to Dallas, Texas because he's broke. He'd rather bed nameless women then spend time with you.

Erica is with Jay Electronica right now. She is not with Common. She had a baby with Andre 3000 and he left her to sleep with groupies and focus on his career. Erica sleeps with alot of people at the same time. She was with Common and was seeing D.O.C. at the same time. She had a baby named Puma and it wasn`t even Common`s baby.
