Despite the controversy surrounding Common’s invite to the White House earlier this month, the First Lady broke her silence and spoke on his visit. “We had a poetry session and we invited young kids in just last week from all over the country. And they talked to some of the most outstanding poets, and they read their poetry in the state room. And then we had a poetry night and Common was there. He’s very cute. But everybody from poet […]

In all seriousness, this is just ridiculous. It’s not like Obama invited the Based God or Soulja Boy over to Casa Blanca. For crying out loud, this is Common. The same guy that brought you the “The Light” and “The People”. What’s so controversial about that? Part two after the jump. […]
The Sly Fox is at it again. Yesterday, the network called Common a “vile rapper” on their website after learning he was invited to the White House by First Lady, Michelle Obama for a poetry event. They based their claim on his “Letter To The Law” poem. Maybe he should ‘do it live’ tomorrow at Casa Blanca.

Depicted after the Civil War, the show: “tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on a Confederate soldier (Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife.” No word if Com will have a reoccurring role, but he plays “Elam”, a freed slave working on the railroad. (Peep him at the :40, :43 marks) […]
