how the hell is Common still underrated and practically underground?

Post  Voel on Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:06 pm

Be was a #2 album, and Finding Forever was #1, he has also made a bunch of movies and has been the protagonist on a few of them. Although, if you ask to someone if they know who the rapper or actor Common is, 7 times out of then they don't know who he is (unless they are Hip Hop fans).
doesn't make sense scratch

Where the fuck do you live that people don't know who Common is? Maybe it's different since I'm from/near Chicago, but still.

Just the way the industry is these days, Common appeals more to the hip hop fan than the general audience.

After the huge deal Fox News made about Common being at that poetry thing at the White House, I'm pretty sure the majority of people are at least aware of him.

That was so fucking stupid. They even praised him earlier and then they were all like "he's a vile rapper" and said he rapped about violence all the time.

There are over 7 Billion people in the world, so technically you could walk up to anyone and ask them if they know who the most famous musician in the world is (by whatever standard you wish to measure their fame by) and it's a distinct possibility they wouldn't know who they are. Besides, until you actually go up to a bunch of random people on the street and ask them, you'll have no idea whether or not they know a musician for sure, you're just assuming that only 3 out of 10 (which is probably high tbh) know Common.

Common isn't underground (IMO, since it's a vague term in the first place) nor is he underrated (again, IMO).

O'Rielly also refereed to Nas as a vile rapper, and while he was criticizing Eminem he said that Hip Hop was the lowest form of entertainment. Ironically, he seemed to be very proud by the fact that he could tell Ice Cube and Ice-T apart, and called himself "a brother"
