common rapper Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr.better known by his stage name Common is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, poet and film producer

Common is one step closer to hip-hop history. The Chicago emcee nabbed an Emmy award at the Primetime Emmy Awards over the weekend for Letter To The Free, a song he penned in collaboration with Robert Glasper for Ava DuVernays powerful 13th documentary. Winning in the Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics category, it marked the first time a rapper had ever won an Oscar, an Emmy and a Grammy award.

The historic feat means that Common, the man Jay-Z famously said he wanted to rhyme like before he sold five million records, is one Tony win away from becoming the 13th person in history to win an EGOT, practically the entertainment Grand Slam. Any time I get a chance to work with Ava DuVernay it leads to something positive, something strong, Common told Deadline after winning the award.

He has a point. Glory, the single he and John Legend earned a Golden Globe and Academy Award for was for DuVernays Martin Luther King biopic Selma.




campmula There once was a time when Camp Mulla ruled the Kenyan airwaves.

The group of four teenagers brought a different sound to the Kenyan music industry that rivaled that of the Ogopa powerhouse. 2012 was their year, with a number of nominations including Channel O Music Video Awards and their BET Best International Act (Africa) nomination, it is no wonder industry executives were speculating that much more would follow. But unfortunately, the group that delivered hits such as Party Dont Stop and Fresh All Day took a break from the limelight to work on their solo careers.

It has been about 5 years since the group performed on stage together. The foursome made up of Shappaman, Miss Karun, Taio Tripper and Kus Ma are officially back with a bang.

This is for the fans! It's time for Kenya to lead African music into the next age. We are ready to serve you more hits, back older and wiser. This Party Don Stop. #Mulla17 #Kenya #Music #Africa #Coolness,said a post shared by Camp Mulla Official.
