#MCM: Common + Listen To His Oscar Acceptance Speech

What’s not to love about actor/rapper/activist, Common? He’s talented, well-spoken, intelligent, conscious and did we mention handsome? We’re loving all that he represents, so much so that we’re making him our inaugural Man Candy Monday crush.

Born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., our #MCM crush hails from Chicago and hit the entertainment scene in 1992 with his album, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, before launching his own record label in 2011.


His latest accomplishment includes winning big at the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Along with John Legend, Common won an Oscar for Original Song. Their original song “Glory” from the civil rights movie Selma beat out the other nominees and landed them the prestigious award.

Watch their beautiful acceptance speech below.

Congrats to Common and John Legend for their win!
