I Know exactly what your thinking. Out of all the rappers who have some of the most raunchy and degrading bars that we all do enjoy there concern is Common. Why Common you ask ? Well back in the year 2000 , Common released a song titled “A Song For Assata”. This Song was Common’s dedication to the mother of 2pac Shakur who was accused of killing a New Jersey State Trooper back in 1973.
Originally , Students wanted Common to make the commencement speech because of his contributions to society and Hip Hop Culture . Yet , due to the outraged members of the State Trooper Fraternal Association and their various Complaints , Kean University ended up pulling Common from doing a commencement speech at the school.
“Its a Slap in the face” Said the President of the State Trooper Association President , Chris Burgos.
Do You guys feel like Common should be getting backlash over a song me made 15 years ago ?
