Common Speaks on His Photography & The Theme of His Next EP

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Our guy Common recently played host to the Canon PIXMA PRO City Senses event. Com was featured alongside local photographers (Kristyna Archer & Taylor Castle) to share their vision of the city of Chicago through their photography. Yet another skill to add to this modern day renaissance man's resume. In the clip, Common talks about drawing inspiration from the sensaory experience of riding around his hometown of Chicago and the concept behind his photograph, "1st Base." All very dope, but to add to that, Com also blesses us with some info on the skill we know him for best, rapping. Com says he's been working on an EP that he plans on dropping before year's end (No I.D. and Swizz Beatz are involved) and a full album at the top of 2014. Both projects will be themed in the "social consciousness of Chicago along with what's going on in the world," and he clarifies they're gonna be straight hip-hop. Be ready for some new heat from Com coming real soon.
