"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!

Check out "The Light" one of my favorite songs by Common below:


  1. WOW!!!!!....I'm speechless, what a man what MAN!!!...Jesus took a little extra time on this brotha! But on a serious note, we as sistahs must support this brotha, he is one of the very few who still reverence us as women in his music, therefore we need to make sure we show the world that we want more music like this to become the mainstream, not the underground.

  2. I completely agree with you NeeNee. This brother deserves our support. So I plan on supporting him come July 31, 2007.

  3. I just really love this man. He is basically the epitome of what I want in a man. This was definitely a good choice for "Brother My Brother".
