The idea that the rapper, Common, and Joe Budden look somewhat similar is a joke that has been spread around Twitter a lot, but it hasn’t picked up the traction that some believe it deserves, at least until now. Hot New Hip Hop claimed Cyn Santana, the mother of Joe Budden’s child, just picked up on the joke.
According to the outlet, a social media user posted a picture of Joe Budden next to another one that was just a photo of coins. The person wrote in the caption underneath Joe Budden’s face, “a lot of y’all are lacking,” which obviously was supposed to be “Common,” and then “cents,” a double-entendre of the word, “sense.”
Reportedly, someone on the internet sent the meme to Cyn Santana and she just had to chime in. Santana wrote in response that it “ain’t Common sis,” but it would’ve been a funny joke if it was actually the rapper, instead of the podcast host.
After realizing the mistake, the social media user poked fun at themself by saying that they understood their error, and the mistake was that it was really “Swizz Beatz.”
In case you didn’t know, sometimes social media users mistake “Swizz Beats” for Common and Joe Budden.
Of course, the men involved are completely different from each other. Common is a rapper and an actor, and he has most recently been in the headlines for his relationship with Tiffany Haddish. Coincidentally, Haddish shaved her head just like Common and the other two men involved in the ongoing social media gag.
Joe Budden, on the other hand, has been on top of the podcasting game for years, and he was recently in a relationship with Cyn Santana until their romance fell apart. According to the media personality’s Wikipedia page, he has been dubbed as the “Howard Stern” of hip-hop.
Swizz Beats, as well, is the co-founder of Verzuz alongside Timbaland, and the rapper and entrepreneur has been married to Alicia Keys since 2010. Alicia and Swizz Beatz have two young children together.
