The Interview: Common’s Photography Featured in Chicago Area Gallery Event

Check out an interview done by Gowhere Hip Hop with Common who has now added photographer to his resume.  His work was displayed in a gallery event recently, and GWHH had the opportunity to sit down with him and discuss his connection with his hometown of Chicago, his photography, and NEW MUSIC!! 

Common and two local photographers were featured in a gallery event that displayed their vision of the city through limited edition photography. There was a baseball theme amongst all the artists’ photos, and the photos were presented as a sensory experience.

We put Common’s photography under the spotlight in the video and wanted to find out the connection between being inspired to take photographs and being inspired to write songs. Com takes it back to growing up in Chicago and also reveals the theme of his upcoming EP and album:

 “This EP, along with the album that’ll come out sometime at the top of next year, will definitely be themed in the social consciousness of Chicago along with what’s going on in the world.”
