Lonnie tells his life story in his upcoming biography, which Maya Angelou describes as a "magnificent memoir."
Common is set to release his autobiography One Day It'll All Make Sense on September 13th through Atria Books.
According to Amazon (via MissInfo.tv), the 320-page memoir, co-authored with Adam Bradley, "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, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, sold only two thousand copies. He recounts his rise to stardom, giving a behind-the-scenes look into the recording studios, concerts, movie sets, and after-parties of a hip-hop celebrity and movie star. He reflects on his controversial invitation to perform at the White House, a story that grabbed international headlines. And he talks about the challenges of balancing fame, love, and fatherhood."
The book also reveals never-before-told stories about Common's encounters with everyone from Lauryn Hill to President Barack Obama. The work is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.
