One thing our readers have in “common” is a mutual adoration for this bachelor. We’ve watched the conscious rapper evolve from a cutie pie with crazy skills on the mic into a globetrotting gentleman with a remarkable onscreen presence and undeniable swagger. Common, you “Used to Love Her,” but that's okay, we’ll always love you just the same.
