Common Praises Eminem, TDE, Lil Herb & Others' Impact On Rap

Common: "There's future in Hip Hop."

Common was recently asked about how he feels regarding Hip Hop.

“I love where Hip Hop is," Common says in an interview with Rap-Up. "There’s future in Hip Hop. I can appreciate the aspects of the quality Hip Hop and the freedom that I get out of artists, whether it’s Ab-Soul or Kendrick Lamar. Their whole team does unique things. I keep mentioning Lil Bibby, Lil Herb and Dreezy. I really like them. Chance does his thing. It's people coming with different stuff. I appreciate that in Hip Hop. You still got that generation along with Nas, Kanye, Jay Z, myself, Eminem, artists putting out music that come from another decade, but the music is still sounding fresh. It's like, Hip Hop has great things to offer." 

Common goes on to praise good kid, m.A.A.d city as "one of the most complete albums we've heard in Hip Hop in a long time." 

Another emcee Common praises is Nicki Minaj.

“I think Nicki Minaj is a dope emcee," he says. "She can really rhyme to me. From what she did on ‘Monster’ to now, she still is snappin’. When you hear her rap, you’re like, 'Damn, this woman is cold.' I mess with Nicki Minaj."

      Haha you're a moron. Talking about 90s fake era rappers pretended to be gangstas the werent then cosign this era? Haha you're a fool. Explain me how is Public Enemy, Cypress Hill, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim etc fake not to mention many more rappers. Back then the balance was 95% of rap was real and only the Vanilla Ice and Kris Kross get attention. Now mainstream is like 95% wankers and new cats like Kendrick lamar & J. Cole who are getting the attention who are actually good. Dude these ''fake 90s guys'' are your favorite rapper's favorite rappers do your homework kid.
