Common, originally Common Sense, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. (born March 13, 1972). I love that he is a true lyricist. How can you not be with Dr. Maya Angelou as your mentor? It doesn't hurt that he is handsome, well dressed, down to earth, midwest native, and has some great female-friendly songs for the female fan base. He is the renaissance man transforming from underground, social conscious hip hop flows to on the big screen actor.
