Common Raps About Women’s Equality at 2018 Women’s March in Utah
The driving snow didn't stop Common from showing up and showing out at the 2018 Women's March in Utah.
Women all across the country are protesting for women's rights, just as they did last year, on the one-year anniversary of the day President Donald Trump was sworn in as Commander-in-Chief. This year, the Chicago rapper was a guest at the Utah Woman's March event in Park City, Utah, where he spit some bars in support of the opposite sex. In a rhymes titled "The Day the Women Took Over" the Windy City MC eloquently showed sympathy for the movement, and laid out the future they hope to see.
"The day the women took over, let it continue/Now women get paid as much as men do," he rapped. "Dr. Angelou looking from heaven's window/Telling young girls, 'Phenomenal woman is in you/Body is a temple/Men don't pray'/Mother Earth's arms around you saying it's OK/Toilet seats down, that's a no-brainer/Monuments in Washington of Fannie Lou Hamer/Harriet, Sojouner's truth is marching on/Women preachers and world leaders ain't out the norm."
Those in attendance appeared to be feeling the dedication. Common is no stranger to putting on for the ladies. This time last year, Com supported women's rights at a concert put on to help raise money for Planned Parenthood. He also performed at that event.
“I'm grateful that you guys came out to support our women," he told the crowd during his set. "As I was thinking about having the honor to perform for Planned Parenthood, I thought about how not only is this about our free choices that women should have to make the choices with what they want to do with their bodies, but women should also be able to have access to healthcare to be able to get what they need."
Though Common and rappers like JAY-Z were fully supportive, other MCs like Azealia Banks and Ab-Soul questioned the motives of the marches.
