Common Talks Golden Globe Win, New Film, And Representing Hip-Hop

Chicago native Common has been riding high this week coming on the heels of winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for ‘Glory’, his collaboration with John Legend. The song lives on the soundtrack for the civil rights film ‘Selma’, which the MC also stars in. While riding on cloud 9, Common called into The Breakfast Club and touched base on the moving speech he gave upon winning the award, addressing the issues currently engulfing the nation surrounding police brutality. Another topic of contention was the negative reviews the film ‘Selma’ has been receiving, with him saying he was surprised by the backlash but feels it is important for our current society to see the story for what it truly is. Ultimately, the mood was a joyous one as The Breakfast Club thanked and congratulated Common for his fine work in this amazing film, and his Golden Globe victory, representing Hip-Hop in a monumental way.
