G.O.O.D. Music Rapper Common’s Chicago Condo Facing Foreclosure


It looks like G.O.O.D. Music’s Common hasn’t been checking his mail back in Chicago. TMZ reports that the rapper’s Chi-Town condo is under threat of foreclosure after he allegedly fell months behind on his mortgage payments.

Com Sense, who keeps a crib in LA, and his longtime manager Derek Dudley purchased the pad in 2008. But according to Bank of America, they stopped making the $2,285 a month mortgage payments in March and the bank decided to begin foreclosure proceedings. It’s not likely the Common is hard up for cash. Besides a successful recording career (he dropped his latest album, The Dreamer The Believer, late last year, and its “The Believer,” featuring John Legend, can be heard in a new Jeep ad campaign), the rapper born Lonnie Rashid Lynn is also a successful actor. The “So Sweet” rapper is reprising his role of Elam, a recently freed slave, in the second season of AMC’s Hell On Wheels, which returns August 12th.
