This coming Wednesday the White House will host a rather uncommon guest and his name is … Common!
The Chicago bred MC, who’s real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. will join First Lady Michelle Obama for poetry night.
The highly publicized dinner has become a must attend event for Hollywood A-lister everywhere.
Despite this being a cause for celebration, Common’s attendance has sparked a bit of hate among political cronies of the past administration due to his criticism of George “Dubya” in the past. Back in 2007, the Grammy nominated MC spit a few controversial lyrics in his song “Burn A Bush.”
“With that happening, why they messing with Saddam? Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button, killing over oil and grease, no weapons of destruction, how can we follow a leader, when this a corrupt one?
Wasn’t like he was lying. Let the haters hate playa … you just worry about doing your thing come Wednesday night. Congrats homie!
