The chosen one from the land of the frozen sun

from Common – Be (Intro) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The land of the frozen sun” is a poetic epithet for Chicago; he proudly represents his hometown on many tracks, which includes another track on this album, “Chi-City”.

Common feels blessed that, out of all the talented dudes in Chicago, he was “the chosen one” in the sense of being the first from Chi-town to really blow up (being selected as “Unsigned Hype” in the 25th edition of The Source, a magazine that launched many major rap careers) and become one of the most prominent hip-hop artists in hip-hop.
