Real Name:
Lonnie Rashied Lynn Jr.
A hip hop artist from Chicago, Illinois. Common (formerly known as Common Sense) arrived on the hip hop scene with his debut "Can I Borrow A Dollar?", and is well known for his sophmore release "Resurrection" and his later collaborations with The Soulquarians. In 2005, he worked with Kanye West and J Dilla on his album "BE". After a chilly reception in the press for "Electric Circus", his fifth album, "BE" was seen as a return to form for Common. Common again collaborated with Kanye West, the late J.Dilla, and newcomer Devo Springsteen on his seventh studio album "Finding Forever". At the same time, Common started an acting career, starring in films such "American Gangster", "Smoking Aces" and "Wanted" to name a few.
