So, to begin, it should be understood that Common is one of the greatest rappers of all time. I mean, he has one of the most consistent discographies in Hip Hop history, son. All jokes aside, besides Universal Mind Control, he’s never put out a wack album, man. That’s right, despite what some naysayers may proclaim, even Electric Circus was quality, fam. With all of that being said, the legendary emcee is in line to pull off an amazing feat: winning an EGOT. After his recent Emmy win, he’s only a Tony Award shy of total victory, bruh.
Now, for those who are unaware, let me explain what an EGOT is. Ok, any person that competitively wins an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony has secured an EGOT. As it currently stands, 12 people have reached this achievement, including Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn and Mel Brooks. In any case, the homie Common might fuck around and add his name to that list, son. All I know is, that would be a MAJOR accomplishment for Hip Hop, man!
Moving on, let’s talk about how Common got here. In terms of Grammys, he’s won 3 awards for “Love of My Life” with Erykah Badu, “Southside” with Kanye West and “Glory” with John Legend. In terms of Oscars, “Glory” also brought home the trophy, since it was the theme for Selma. Lastly, in terms of Emmys, he just won the award for “Letter to the Free” with Bilal, since it was theme for the 13th documentary. All in all, Ava DuVernay has been a godsend for Rashid, fam. Shit, she’s been hooking him up with some prime real estate, bruh.
In the end, this post is basically a major shout-out to Common. I mean, he’s always been one of my favorite rappers and I’m hyped to see the moves he’s making. By and by, he’s showing rappers how to properly age in this game, son. Ultimately, most artists should aspire to be like him, man. LC out.
P.S. If Common is really dating Angela Rye, then this dude is on a CRAZY winning streak, fam. Like, I shouldn’t have to explain how dope Rye is, bruh. All jokes aside, if anyone is unaware of her, then Google should become their friend. That is all.
