HipHopGods - Where Classic Hip Hop Lives

A Shoutout to Common

A Shoutout to Common

“I was rollin’ around, in my mind it occurred/ What if God was a Her?/ Would I treat her the same? Would I still be running’ game on Her?/ In what ways would I want Her?/ Would I want her for her mind or her heavenly body?/ Couldn’t be out getting’ bogus with someone so godly/ If I was wit’ her would I still be wanting my ex?/ The lies, the greed, the weed, the sex?” presents the opening lines on Common’s highly-esteemed single entitled “Faithful.”

The track and the lyricism it entails presents but one among the Chicago-born emcee’s multitude of masterpiece content, and this day in hip-hop magnifies the spotlight on the brilliant mind that simply flaunts itself by the name, Common.
