SEA Takeover Common is an actor, writer, philanthropist, and activist. While his accolades are vast, hip-hop will always and forever be at the core of everything he does.
The Grammy-award winning recording artist recently released his memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word, in which he pens about family and relationships. He even opens up about his experience being molested as a child. Let Love is a return to form for Common : collaborating with artists he worked with over 20 years ago — including Jill Scott and Bilal.
The two shared a special bond, crafting countless classics during the Like Water for Chocolate , Electric Circus days. An experience Common looks fondly upon. Music is a way for me to connect to myself, in a lot of ways: a way for me to express myself; a way for me to go into my imagination; a way for me to find divine creative things about me; a way for me to talk about my life.
But the next level of what music does for me, it inspires other people. A lot of self-discovery and self-work. I still got a lot to say. It also gave me a baseline or theme to already go on.
I started writing songs about things and starting putting them in the book too. It fed each other. Throughout time, people still refer to it as something that meant something to them. It was a great way for me to talk about how I felt about hip-hop at that time. I feel like my perspective has evolved now, but the love is still there. Oh nah. I still think hip-hop in its purest form is incredible.
Even if their vision is to make a lot of money, they still have love for the music, so I still feel that way. I evolved in that I understand music and people are going to change.
I guess my understanding of love grew. Definitely nostalgic. Really, almost extra nostalgic. While I was rapping he was frowning his face. We were young dudes, he thought I was rapping about a girl. When I said I was talking about hip-hop, I remember recording and seeing his face. I wanted to honor them, give respect to them. Acknowledge them. Everything we released was when he was alive.
We created together. You would kill that!Well I want to dedicate this video to my girlfriend of almost two years. A year and ten months to be exact. I Truly Really Do Love Her With All Of My Heart.
