15414, Common revolutionary?

How revolutionary do you see common as?
When i saw him in norway he seemed very revolutionary to me. Compared to other american hiphop artists who only talk about their problems, common was global

"Brand Nubian and Common - Maybe one day" is much more revolutionary than what most other rappers can come up with. ("Revolutinary is like a pussy, i try to stay up in it".. what does he mean with that?). And that he is as international as he is puts him one more level above the others (see, when other rappers talk about their situation, common's message can work on all continents)!

What you think?
