He Goes By "Common"

The NH Journal has a great headline:
Acolyte of Rev. Wright to complicate Obama poetry night?
It rhymes, all on its own.

So, they're having a poetry night at the White House? I didn't get my invite, but I bet it's a blast.
Some of Common’s poetry could also raise some eyebrows among those who might find cop-killing and racially-tinged or misogynist language beneath the Office of the Presidency.
Give the man a break, he's just trying to rap.
You gotta talk rough if you want folks to clap.
You act like a gangster, it's part of the game
of trying to obtain some fortune and fame.
