Rapper, actor, philanthropist, Chicagoan and, now, author; that Common guy really gets around. The Chitown rhymesmith's latest venture is a life-spanning memoir, entitled One Day It'll All Make Sense, named for his classic 1997 LP and due out in September. In conjunction with the release of the One Day book, Common will hit Chicago's own South Shore Cultural Center to discuss his life and work with New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica. The no-holds-barred tete-a-tete between the esteemed critic and the acclaimed rapper goes down September 19 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Cultural Center. $25 tickets for the event are available here, and will almost certainly go quickly.
Common, as you may recall, is set for a prime spot at this month's North Coast Festival, which goes down September 2-4 at Union Park. Passes for that are still onsale right here.
