For three nights, Grammy, Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winning artist Common combined the personal and poetic, with the literary and the lyrical to spin a new, music and storytelling experience in this Audible original production. As a young artist, introduced to the work of literary icons from James Baldwin and Gwendolyn Brooks to Rakim and Melle Mel, Common would grow to use their works as motivation and a high-water mark for what would become his life in words.
