The rise of Common from the depths of underground hip hop has been a thing too watch.

He has always enjoyed critical success but it was the mainstream success that eluded him, that was until another fellow Chi-Town emcee by the name Kanye West came and swept him from the depths of the underground and brought him along with him on his own meteoric rise to the top of not only hip hop but music as well.
