Grammy Family

After several nominations, Common finally snagged a Grammy in 2003 with "Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip-Hop)," his duet with then-girlfriend Erykah Badu, for Best R&B Song. Com followed that up with another Grammy win in 2008 for "Southside" with Kanye, which bested the Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group category.
