With his multi-Grammy award winning music career, continued work in film and television, and multiple written works, Common has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men. His numerous previous accomplishments in film and music include starring on the silver screen in films such as American Gangster, Terminator Salvation, Date Night, and Now You See Me. Prior to acting, COMMON rose to prominence as one of hip hop’s most poetic and respected lyricists having recorded over eight albums and garnering multiple Grammy Awards. He also collaborated with numerous R&B and hip-hop stars like Kanye West, John Legend, and Kid Cudi. Now focusing more on his music career, COMMON is set to release his first mixtape in April followed by his 10th album “Nobody’s Smiling”. Whether inspiring audiences through music, movies, television, books or charity, COMMON continues to break new ground, and remains to be one of hip-hop’s most innovative, positive voices.
