yeah, I just saw this too. Is this ok? I was happy to see him, but then someone pointed out it was a gap commercial......I love common, should I be happy he's makin a couple bucks, because I really don't support the GAP.....I'm confused, tell me what I should think....

I can't blame the guy for wanting a little money. He toiled in (relative) obscurity for a long time and I think he deserves to get paid while he's a more recognized artist. The starving underground artist doing it all for the music itself is a nice image, but everybody has to make that bread somehow.

is it cuz he's doing commercials?? or is it cuz the commercial is for GAP?? i mean, Com' has been doing commercials for a lil while now. remember the sprite commericlal??? and the coke commerical with mya a couple of years ago?? i mean, he's a lil more recognized now and i guess that would explain it. but how come people aren't feeling GAP???

I agree, there's that certain group of fans that's never going to be happy, no matter what you do. If GAP offers him cash, good for him.

No issue here. Common has made some sick albums in his carreer, the best being LWFC. As long as that keeps up it's all good. Once he falls off though...

Common needs to sit down with that ol extra smedium jacket he has on in that commercial. he can't even get the hood all the way up. If he did, his belly button and wrists would be exposed.

oh yeah:

BigErnMcCracken is the coolest person in STMB history.........EVER

I got no problem with that (GAP has some good stuff from time to time).

As long as he doesn't fall off lyrically then I dont care.
