Common, or earlier known as Common Sense, is an MC and producer from Chicago
. he usually focuses on lyricism, and focuses on a large spectrum of different topics. He usually is in songs produced or collabed with Kanye West, but has been in other songs collabed with other hip hip mc's. He does alot of stuff with the clothing company GAP
, and also does not dress like usual rappers. He dresses in my opinion very classy, wearing sweaters and polo tshirts. He has a foundation that raises money for the cure for HIV/AIDS and also very pollitically involved. he is a mostly legend underground, but people who dont like real hip hop probably wont like him. he has had few songs go mainstream. His albums in order are: Can i Borrow A Dollar in 92, Resurrection in 94, Thisisme then- The Best of Common in 96, One Day it'll All Make Sense in 97, Like Water for Chocolate in 2000, Electric Circus in 02, Be in 05, and Finding Forever in 07. He will forever be a legend in hip hop forever.
Common is my favorite MC and one of the most gifted lyrically ever. I also like his style of clothing.
