Common and CNN’s Angela Rye are the new couple everyone can’t stop talking about

Share on

Fans of the pair are practically giddy.

It’s a match made in hip-hop heaven: Common, the socially conscious Oscar-winning rapper/actor/activist who has performed (and partied) at the White House, and Angela Rye, the Hill vet and CNN political analyst who can shut down a cable news pundit with Beyoncé lyrics and plenty of facts.

The new couple were spotted together last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys, where Common (real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr.) took home a trophy for outstanding original music and lyrics for “13th,” director Ava DuVernay’s Netflix documentary about mass incarceration.

Common and Rye posed together on the red carpet, which in Hollywood makes a thing a thing.

Rye then seemed to confirm the whispers when she posted a photo of Common on her Instagram account with a lengthy caption that read, in part, “Super proud of this guy for having a big #EGO, which is not to be confused with a big ego. Here he is giving thanks to the Almighty for his Emmy just like he does for taking every breath, every single day. I’m thankful for his tremendous example of humility, leadership, kindness, and creativity. May we all be inspired to #WORKwoke.”

Although neither Rye nor Common have commented officially on their relationship status (even though they were spotted together in July at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans), the Internet has spoken. Fans of the pair are practically giddy, dubbing the potential new power couple “#wokebaegoals.”
