Rapper Common and political news correspondent Angela Rye have been the talk of the TL ever since they appeared at the 2017 Creative Arts Emmy Awards together. While Angela Rye went on to gush about Common in an adorable congratulatory post, the Emmy winner has been pretty quiet about the status of their relationship — until now.
Common spilled all of the tea on his blossoming relationship with Angela Rye while chatting with Bevy Smith on her ‘Bevelations’ show on SirusXM. “Yes, there’s definitely a connection with Angela Rye. She’s a wonderful woman. And you know, I’ll just say I’m dating. I’m happy right now. She’s an incredible human being,” he gushed.
Going further Common added, “That’s the good thing about Angela, too, she’s just a fun person… She’s obviously about the mission and about the people.”
Dishing on the importance of having balance in working in activism and enjoying life, Common said, “Just because you’re conscious and aware don’t mean you gotta not have fun… You’re still going to kick it, and that’s part of me too.”
Aww we can’t wait to see how this #WokeCouple flourishes in the future.
