With his success in hip hop and in Hollywood, things have to make sense these days for Common. On September 13, the rapper/actor/father will release his memoir, One Day It'll All Make Sense, a book about his life.


Written with Adam Bradley, Common's book chronicles his life, chronicling his days from a young boy growing up on the South Side of Chicago to his present day stardom. According to hiphopdx, the 320-page book is being released via Atria Books, and has already been described as a "magnificent memoir" by legendary poet and writer Maya Angelou.


In this revealing memoir, Common talks about his rise to stardom, even admitting that he almost quit rapping when his first album sold only 2,000 copies. The rapper gives an insider's view to the life of a rap celebrity.
