Common might just be the first dude that takes issues publicly.
“Me and All of My Friends” is an ode to Rob’s peers, who just like him, are getting older and are starting to fear that they’ve wasted too much of their youth on quixotic pursuits.
But instead of dwelling on what is lost, this song is an uplifting and life-affirming call to re-awaken the potential in each of us.
Emily "After a host of unsuccessful relationships that began offline, I began to realise that although I often met people that I got on well with, we didn't share the same values, and that created problems further down the line.
I studied psychology at university and was really interested in dating; what brought people together and kept them together.
That date was a bit of a disaster, I can see why we were matched, but I think this guy had been on the site for so long that he probably just checked all the boxes and would therefore have matched with almost anyone.

Either way you interpret it, Saturday has become meaningless. “Saturday is just not real.” To fill out the EP, Rob has invited some of his friends and contemporaries to remix his songs.
Speed Dial 7 offers a remix of “Me and All of My Friends” that slows down the original, which manages to stir up the feeling of giving a toast to all of your friends from the head of a dinner table that you know may never be full again.
A native of Edmonton, Canada, Rob attended the University of Alberta and focused his academic efforts on an honours degree in Religious and East Asian Studies.
