This weekend at the 2-night Creative Arts Emmys, YBF folks took over and raked up all the accolades.  And Common's big Emmy win was extra sweet...now that he's gone public with new girlfriend, political correspondent Angela Rye!

The twosome, who have been dating for months on the low (but have been spotted out together a time or two), hit the red carpet together Saturday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A.  And we're totally here for this extra woke couple!

This new Emmy means he's one step closer to achieving that EGOT status!  His bae Angela gushed over it all on IG (with heart emojis and everything) saying:
