Common "Like Water for Chocolate" (2000)

OK kids, before Common was an actor, he was a rapper!  Back in the 90s he was one of the guys who provided an alternative to the much higher profile gangsters dominating the music.

Like Water for Chocolate holds up pretty well, but perhaps that should be expected given that its sound was at least somewhat consciously retro at the time of its release.  In combination with the rest of his catalog, Common can make a case that he is the best of the rappers turned actors.
