With his multi-Grammy Award-winning music career, and his continued accolades in film, Common has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after leading men. Before launching his successful acting career, Common rose to prominence as one of hip hop’s most poetic and respected lyricists. He has recorded 10 studio albums and garnered multiple Grammy Awards. He released his highly anticipated album Nobody’s Smiling on July 22, 2014 on Def Jam/Atrium Records. The album debuted No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop chart. In 2004, he partnered with Chicago native and rap music mega-star Kanye West to produce the album BE, which went on to garner four Grammy Award nominations. In 2007 Common released his critically acclaimed seventh album Finding Forever, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart and it went on to earn a Grammy award. His eighth album, Universal Mind Control, was released in 2008 and was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Rap Album. Common’s highly anticipated ninth album, The Believer, The Dreamer, was released to critical acclaim by Warner Bros. Records on December 20, 2011. On September 18, 2012, Common joined forces with the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music crew to release the highly anticipated Cruel Summer album. Additional artists on the album include Kanye West, John Legend, Pusha T, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Kid Cudi.
Common is a regularly requested guest speaker known to motivate and empower collegiate minds while speaking at prestigious universities across the country. In 2000, he launched his own philanthropic effort, The Common Ground Foundation, whose mission is dedicated to the empowerment and development of disadvantaged youth in urban communities by mentoring in three areas: character development, creative expression and healthy living.
Whether inspiring audiences through music, movies, television, books or his foundation, Common continues to break new ground and remains one of hip-hop’s most innovative, positive voices.
