From the hip hop icon, Hollywood star, and “a true artist and writer of deep talent” (James McBride, author of The Color of Water)—a candid, New York Times bestselling memoir ranging from his childhood on Chicago’s South side and his emergence as one of rap’s biggest names.

Common has earned a reputation in the hip-hop world as a conscious artist by embracing themes of love and struggle in his songs. His journey toward understanding is rooted in his relationship with a remarkable woman, his mother.

Common holds nothing back in this gripping memoir, both provocative and funny. He tells what it was like for a boy with big dreams growing up on the South Side of Chicago. He reveals how he almost quit rapping after his first album sold only two thousand copies. He recounts his rise to stardom and talks about the challenges of balancing fame, love, and family. Through it all, Common emerges as a man in full. Rapper. Actor. Activist. But also father, son, and friend. His story offers a living example of how, no matter what you’ve gone through, one day it’ll all make sense.

From Publishers Weekly

25 July 2011 – Rapper and actor Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, shares his life story in this candid, no-nonsense autobiography. He offers not only a straightforward narration of his life, but also includes intimate, sometimes emotional letters to people important to him, such as his father, treasured childhood friends, fellow hip hop artist Kanye West, and even his younger self, to whom he muses, "Man, you a cool little dude, but you got a lot to learn." Vignettes written by his mother reflect and enhance his story by providing her unique perspective on her son's significant experiences. Common credits her with raising him to be "a gift-giver who can love life and love myself and be in love with others," who views his life's purpose as "us my fame to provide more exposure for my art so that I can influence people's lives for the better." Lyrics from songs that were inspired by formative incidents are interspersed throughout, revealing the highly personal nature of his work and giving fans background on what prompted the creation of the music they love.
