Nope. It was Common. The guy that did a Christmas ad for The Gap. That guy.
I swear, given his choices in music, I'm tempted to think that President Obama is whiter than I am sometimes.
One of Sullivan's readers makes a point upon which I really cannot improve:
"I always find it amusing that Johnny Cash can sing lines like "Early one morning while making the rounds, I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down" or "I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die" and everyone pretty much accepts that he's in character telling a story. But a rapper has gotta be squeaky clean if he or she doesn't want to be labeled a "thug". Even more amusing is to consider the legacy of Cash's famous appearances at Folsom and San Quentin prisons. Can you imagine such an event happening today with a rapper, even one as milquetoast as Common?"
