Common is an award-winning artist and activist. He is the only hip hop artist to have won an Emmy, Grammy, and Oscar—one Tony shy of an "EGOT". Common's body of work converges art with soul, politics with heart. He founded the Common Ground Foundation because he believes "making a difference in the lives of others is life's greatest purpose."
