There are few in the game who have witnessed as much as Common has over his long career. In his autobiography, titled One Day It’ll All Make Sense, the Chicago native details his experiences and stories involving Tupac, Biggie, Lauryn Hill, Barack Obama, and Nelson Mandela.
In One Day It’ll All Make Sense, Common holds nothing back. He tells what it was like for a boy with big dreams growing up on the South Side of Chicago.
He reveals how he almost quit rapping after his first album, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, sold only two thousand copies.
He recounts his rise to stardom, giving a behind-the-scenes look into the recording studios, concerts, movie sets, and after-parties of a hip-hop celebrity and movie star.
He reflects on his controversial invitation to perform at the White House, a story that grabbed international headlines. And he talks about the challenges of balancing fame, love, and fatherhood.
The book will be released on September 13. It can be pre-ordered here.
