After months of rumors and speculations, Chicago MC Common has finally confirmed his relationship with political commentator and activist, Angela Rye.
The rapper recently shared the news with SiriusXM’s Bevy Smith, saying “Yes, there’s definitely a connection with Angela Rye. She’s a wonderful woman. And you know, I’ll just say I’m dating. I’m happy right now. She’s an incredible human being.”
“That’s the good thing about Angela, too, she’s just a fun person,” he continued. “She obviously is about the mission and about the people…Just because you’re conscious and aware don’t mean you got to not have fun. You’re still going to kick it, ‘cause that’s part of me too.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Despite Common’s recent confirmation, the two have been gushing over each other for months. After arriving to the Emmy’s together, Rye took to Instagram to congratulate the musician for his Creative Arts Emmy for the song, “Letter to the Free.”
“Super proud of this guy for having a big #EGO, which is not to be confused with a big ego. Here he is giving thanks to the Almighty for his Emmy just like he does for taking every breath, every single day. I’m thankful for his tremendous example of humility, leadership, kindness, and creativity. May we all be inspired to #WORKwoke.”
