From the hip hop icon, Hollywood star, and "a true artist and writer of deep talent" (James McBride, author of The Color of Water)a candid, New York Times bestselling memoir ranging from his childhood on Chicago's South side and his emergence as one of rap's biggest names. The story I have to tell involves celebrity: how I broke into the rap game, the people I've met, the places I've been, my life in the spotlight. But on a more fundamental level this is a book about a mother and a son, a father and a daughter… In the twenty years since his first release, Common, born Lonnie Rashied Lynn, has become one of the most successful artists in hip-hop. Winner of two Grammys and with nine successful albums to date, including 2010's The Believer, he's now a bona fide movie star, appearing in American Gangster, Date Night, and landing a starring role in Just Wright opposite Queen Latifah. Though Common's parents divorced when he was six, Lonnie Sr. remained an active presence, helping his son get a job as ball boy for the Chicago Bulls. But it was his mother's steady presence that provided him with the guidance to succeed on his own terms. Her far-reaching influence and Common's thoughtful account of his own journey through fatherhood form the heart and soul of this genuinely inspiring memoir. One Day It'll All Make Sense, is, like its subject, outspoken and sometimes controversial, yet indisputably powerful and profound.
