Hella dope, powerful set by one of the realest in the game – Common, with friends (Bilal, Robert Glasper, Karriem Higgins and others) for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series which enjoyed a privileged White House Public Library venue.
The set commences with a signature jam,
“I Used To Love H.E.R.” (such a beautiful metaphor and homage for the culture that we love so much).
And three premier tracks from the new album, Black America Again – slated for a November release via Artium/Def Jam.
“Letter to the Free” (from an Ava Duvernay-directed movie, 13th on Netflix, addressing the business of incarceration in America).
“The Day The Women Took Over” and “Little Chicago Boy” – a dedication to his pops, Lonnie Lynn.
Stream the inaugural, White House – SXSW (South by South Lawn Event) live set at NPR Music, and revel and bask and act on the animus 😎
