Common also said he admires that Rye is a lot of fun in addition to being a woke activist.

“That’s the good thing about Angela, too, she’s just a fun person,” he continued. “She’s obviously is about the mission and about the people…Just because you’re conscious and aware don’t mean you gotta not have fun. You’re still going to kick it, ’cause that’s part of me too.”
