Multi-platinum Rapper Common tweeted a shout out this morning to a Canadian kid, Andrea Woo, who had nothing better to do than pinpoint the EXACT DATE Ice Cube was referring to in his 1993 multi-platinum hit “It Was Good Day.” Now, we’re sure there are skeptics who will argue Cube probably blazed up and was stringing words together, but not only did the bigger than life Rapper/budding movie star Common give the Canadian kid her props, he also let today’s generation know exactly what his thoughts are on what constitutes the genre:

Here’s the tweet:

When you clicked on the link it took you to Woo’s page and his methodical dissection of Cube’s lyrics that fueled his detective work to pinpoint the day.

In case you are living under a rock and have no idea about the apocalyptic neutron bomb DUNK, Blake Griffin served against his Oklahoma City opponent last night, take a look below.  Some are calling it he dunk of the year.  No mon frere, it’s arguably one of the best dunks of the millennium!

Two days previous, the Chicago-born lyricist waxed poetic about his torn loyalties when it came to supporting his NBA heroes:

29 Jan COMMON COMMON @common“to go hard in the paint like D.Wade or D.Rose, from the same streets that we rose”. (c) ME. Bulls or Heat?
