Hip-hop is set for a big boost as a result of Barack Obama's US

election victory, according to rapper-actor Common.

The Wanted star insists the public is tired of rappers writing about guns, drugs and crime and he is hopeful Obama's White House win is a positive message to the world.

He is adamant hip-hop stars must follow the Democrats' example.

He says: "I really do believe hip-hop artists pick up what's going on in the world. I think they will have no choice but to talk about different and more positive things.

"Try to bring a brighter side to that because, even before Barack, I think people had been tired of hearing the same thing."
