Common's Regret

"One of my greatest regrets about my music is that my early albums include lyrics that might be considered homophobic . . .

Here I was claiming the title of "conscious artist," and I had this huge blind spot in my consciousness. I never wanted to be guilty of mismeasuring someone else's humanity. I've had it done to me, and I know the pain it causes. Hearing from that fan opened up my eyes."
