I’ve heard drugs and maybe a special someone but this is quite new. Common says changing a diet and becoming a vegetarian has made him become a better artist. He states he grew up eating all types of unhealthy foods such as hamburgers, barbecue, and bacon. He has now completely threw all of that out of the window.

Common says,

“I heard rappers like KRS-One in ‘My Philosophy,’ say things about not eating meat, which was a real education, especially since it was coming from somebody cool. That stayed with me and made me want to learn more. As soon as I removed meat from my diet, I started to feel a clarity I didn’t have before. It sounds funny, but I feel like I was rapping better.”

As of now, Common is a pescatarian which means he eats fish and seafood. He says,

“I believe that what you eat affects the way you feel, the way you think and how beautiful you can look, so I’m really passionate about introducing kids to a holistic, healthy, good life.”

He’s currently trying to get his kids on the same wave. Well thanks Common for teaching me the secret behind being a better artist.
