Vivid and contemptuous description used in a wide range of ways to describe someone who is uncouth, has no class, no intellectual dexterity, emotional maturity, or spiritual insight all the way to down to being someone who is pretty much of no particular good use or value to forward thinking people.

This word is not race or class specific and does not rely or pedigree or upbringing. It's all about patterns of behavior and world view.
"Man that Duck Dynasty guy is something else with all the stuff he says. Is that what all Christians believe and think?"
"Some of them do, but they don't get on TV and blast everybody around them as if they're common, like these 'tards do. It actually makes THEM look like the commoners".

Jun 24 Word of the Day
An exclamation made when your friends or family are teasing you to a point where you can't handle it anymore and a hissy fit is in order.

Derived from a YouTube user's famed outburst following Britney's lackluster performance at the 2007 VMA's.
Sarah: 'OMG Susan, I can't believe you are wearing the same skirt as yesterday. Oh, and by the way, EVERYONE knows what you did with Kevin on the weekend. Plus you look a little fat, are you retaining water?'

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.

"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.
