is best known by his stage name ‘Common.’ He is an American hip hop artist, actor, poet, and film producer.
Common was born March 13th, 1972 in South Chicago, Illinois.
And, with his soulful track from up for Best Original Song at this year's Oscars ceremony, it looks like Common's music career is continuing on the up and up in 2018.
If that sounds like a match made in heaven for the famously politically-attuned rapper, that's probably because it is.
Rumors of a potential Common-Rye pairing began to circulate last September, after the two were spotted looking particularly smitten during the 2017 Creative Arts Emmys' red carpet.
That being said, fans of the rapper seem just as concerned with who Common is dating in 2018 as they are with the details of his professional achievements.
So, to set the record straight: Common is dating Angela Rye, the fiery political analyst for CNN who made headlines last year when she stood up to former Congressman Joe Walsh on live TV.
