He is one of the few rappers you should respect even if you don't listen to him. I respect him through his conversations and debates with other men on TV, and I don't even listen to his type of music but he appeals alot. Shows a lot of wisdom, never talks about hoes or disrepects woman. Make's wise conversations and music. Only song I know is "I use to love her".

His rap name also represent Common Sense, from what I heard. He concerns from his surroundings, thus the use of common sense in ur life.
"Yo is that Common?
"Nope, not the common rapper"
"Oh, duh, next time I gotta use my commen sense to know that"

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.

Very common (pun intended) misconception of the words: "come on"

Commonly used by uneducated teens and young adults in today's world. Especially in social media.

Most often confused with the abbreviation "c'mon"
Person 1: I can't make it to the party tonight!

Person 2: COMMON man, are you serious?!

Person 1: What? You just said common in the wrong context, I think you should be studying for English class instead of partying all night.

A pretty awesome last name, with the likes of Nottingham winger Kris Commons flaunting it. Families in North Lincolnshire choose to respond to Commons rather than their first name.
"Hey, Charlotte?"..."Oi Commons!"
"Yes?!"
