Common sat down for an interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe" today to discuss his new memoir One Day It’ll All Make Sense.
The Chicago rapper/actor talked about what inspired him to write the book, his mom being his best friend, being labeled a "socially conscious" rapper, and Nas being the best rapper alive.
“Nas is so poetic with it and I feel like his lyrics, you can write ‘em down on paper and they will last for time," Common said. "It would be like literature that we read."
The two recently linked up for the song "Ghetto Dreams," which is the first single for Common's upcoming 9th studio album The Dreamer, The Believer, due out later this year.
