A highly regarded icon in the hip-hop game and Southside Chicago native, Common lets all into the beginnings of his life through this memoir.
“Common has written a magnificent memoir. It states that it is a book about his fascinating life. That is true. More importantly, his story is the story of all young people trying to grow up. His saga reminds the reader that love liberates and poverty cripples. Common writes beautifully, like the poet he is.” –Maya Angelou
