Common & Soulja Boy promise more positivity
How crazy is that in the same week both Common and Soulja Boy are making statements about their music getting more positive?
While it's no surprise that Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr [aka Com Sense] is talking about this shift (although I'm told his newest album belies his track record), it is noteworthy for Superman do it.
Known for his Trojan Horse dance tracks, shouts out to slave owners, and self promotion, S-Boy now says he knows kids look up to him and that he wants to change.
I appreciate the talk, but frankly want to see it in their walk.
