Common is much more than another rapper from the south side of Chicago. The Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-winning rapper is also a philanthropist and social activist, who makes no qualms about speaking out about the social injustice that plagues the African American community. All which he discusses brilliantly in his newest album, Black America Again.
He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his 11th studio album and clarifies those Regina Hall rumors.
On his duet with Stevie Wonder:
“This is about love. It’s a call to action. We’ve got to change things. We’ve seen what’s happening with the devaluing of our lives. I try to do it with the music and activism.”
On the rumors of him dating Barbershop co-star Regina Hall:
“I’m a single man. Regina is incredible. But we’ve decided not to date. We’re friends. And Serena…we’re friends.”
