Common is celebrating his 47th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed rappers of his generation.
Popular rapper-actor-producer Common (Finding Forever, Be, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 47th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Common, a cultural icon
Born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. in Chicago on March 13, 1972, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in American history. Common's not just a great rapper, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Common hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Common as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 47.
Happy Birthday, Common, you're the best!
