"Brother my brother oh how I love thee let me count the ways..."
Common is definitely one of the brothers that all the sistas love. With his conscious lyrics and infectious flow, he gives sista a reason to fight for Hip-Hop. With Finding Forever his follow-up to the critically and commerically successful album, BE, coming out on July 31. I definitely think this brother is worth supporting. He encompasses all the things you think Hip-Hop should be. He uplifts you, caress you, and make you proud to be the woman of color that you are. Though his name might be Common, he is no ordinary man. He is a brother worth talking and writing about. So here's to you Mr. Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. our very first Brother My Brother!
