Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times reviewed the Common show at House of Blues on Wednesday. He writes, “Dismissed by some hard-core rappers and fans as a hopeless hippie because of the optimism and positivity of his lyrics (and, in recent years, his refusal to pander to hard-core demands for violent, sexist boasting), Common has no shortage of righteous anger and indignation. He just knows how to direct it against the proper targets. Jumping, bouncing and breakdancing, the 30-year-old rapper was a nonstop blur of energy.”
