In industry where audacity and self centeredness reign supreme, it is nice to shake hands with an artist that prides himself in neither. The Gentlemen’s Lodge crew found themselves at On Broadway for Common’s roof shaking performance in San Diego this week. After performing two sets and mingling with friend Sean Merriman, it was safe to say Common made his mark on his fans and left them star struck and in some cases heartbroken. We caught up with him to talk about his new movie with Queen Latifah and his secret dream of being a NBA star. Special thanks to 451degrees.com and Impact Productions. It is people like Common who uphold the true definition of a gentlemen.
