Chicago rapper Common is penning an autobiography that will be released in June, according to the Associated Press.
The 38-year-old actor and hip-hop emcee’s memoir, entitled “One Day It’ll Make Sense,” will be co-written by hip-hop scholar Adam Bradley.
The book will detail the rapper’s childhood on the South Side of Chicago as well as his career as an emcee, working alongside friend Kanye West to create their Grammy-winning track “Southside.” His appearance in the movie “American Gangster” and other Hollywood films will also be discussed in the book.
Common, whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynne, is among the growing list of rappers-turned-authors.
According to CBS News.com, rapper Jay-Z recently released his own memoir, entitled “Decoded.” His book touches on his rise to fame from the crime-stricken neighborhood of the Bedford-Stuyvesant section in Brooklyn, N.Y. to his superstar status in the hip-hop industry today.
