Common Net Worth: Common is an American musician and actor who has a net worth of $35 million dollars. Born Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. in Chicago, Illinois, in 1972, he attended Florida A&M to study business administration. In 1992, his debut single, "Take It EZ", released under the moniker Common Sense. His commercial success began with his second album, "Resurrection", in 1994. During the mid-'90s, his song, "I Used to Love H.E.R.", sparked a feud with rappers Westside Connection, who responded to Common in their track "Westside Slaughter". Common's third album dropped in 1997 and led to a record deal with MCA Records. His fourth effort, "Like Water for Chocolate", was his first to be certified gold and one of his singles off the album was nominated for a Grammy. His next record was produced primarily by Kanye West, with the album going gold and receiving four Grammy nominations. Over the course of his career, Common has released ten studio albums between 1992 and 2014, racking up two BET Awards, two Grammys (Best R&B Song for "Love of My Life" in 2003; Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group for "Southside" in 2008), and eleven Grammy nods. The rapper has developed a successful film career with dozens of credits, including appearances in "American Gangster", "Date Night", "Happy Feet Two", "New Year's Eve", "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" and "Now You See Me". He worked as a Gap model and has promoted products for Microsoft, Diesel, BlackBerry and NBA 2K8. In 2011, he was the center of a White House controversy after being invited by Michelle Obama to attend a poetry reading. The New Jersey State Police opposed Common's invitation because he wrote a song about a man convicted of murdering a local state trooper. The White House Press Secretary issued a statement noting that the President opposes some of Common's work. His memoir, "One Day It'll All Make Sense", was published in 2011. Common has been romantically linked to several celebrities, including Serena Williams. He is an active animal rights advocate and has appeared in a PETA ad.
