Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 22.7.

One of the best lyricist in Hip-Hop, with one of it's best songs (I Used To Love H.E.R.), and love from Michelle Obama.

Before he was starring in Hell on Wheels, Common was carrying the torch for intelligent, positive rap. He even was derided in the hip-hop community for being wussy. Despite this, some on the religious right complained when he was invited to the White House by Obama, because he celebrated cop-killing and gansta lifestyles... Nice.

Either way, Common's rapping is decent, his production has improved since he became buds with Kanye and Pharrell, and his lyrics are consistently strong. A talent.
