Actually I was born and raised in the place that Too $hort is from (the place in which he no longer resides but anywayz...) You're probably not responding to me directly but my point was: Why question Common's current success when he has put at least ten years of work into it. Nelly and Ludacris, who have sold more records than Com by far are virtual unknowns. I'm from the streets, but you won't hear me talkin' about it 24-7, the World is much bigger than E.14th--if you nah'mean? I'm just as much for rebuilding the projects in my neighborhood as for rebuiling Rwanda! Ya gotta know to grow!
