Over the weekend, rapper #Common won the award for Best Music and Lyrics at the Creative Arts Emmys for his song “Letter to the Free” which was featured on #AvaDuVernay’s documentary “13th.” The only person who was cheering him on harder than his mama that night was his official lady #AngelaRye.
Angela is the CEO of a political advocacy firm called IMPACT, a commentator on CNN and an NPR political analyst which makes her the perfect match for conscious rapper Common. We suspected that these two were dating when we spotted them together in New Orleans for the Essence Festival.
Yesterday, Angela wrote a heartfelt congratulatory post to Common and expressed how proud she was of his big win!
“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,” Angela wrote. “I’m thankful for his tremendous example of humility, leadership, kindness, and creativity. May we all be inspired to #WORKwoke.” She then completed her message with hearts.
