Has anyone heard of 'em? Common blows up after 10 years of puttin' in work and we question it? I'm still wonderin' where the hell fools like Ludacris and Nelly came from...and why their sellin' millions...If Common has went platinum yet, he's deserved every unit he pushed. I flipped out over "I used to love H.E.R." (can anybody say 'classic'?) and I was but a wee girl in high school (before half these mofo's even knew who Common was). I'm still bangin Like Water for Chocolate, ADIDAS/SPRITE contracts and r&b hooks aside...
