As well as music, Common has worked as an actor, on the films ‘Smokin’ Aces’ (as Sir Ivy) ‘American Gangster’ (as Turner Lucas) and ‘Wanted’. He may also be seen in cameo roles in films such as ‘Brown Sugar’.
His debut was the 1992 album Can I Borrow A Dollar, but he achieved little critical or commercial success until 1994’s Resurrection, an instant classic. He produced several more albums, notably Like Water For Chocolate and the highly experimental Electric Circus, before releasing the Kanye West and J Dilla-produced Be in 2005, which was his first album to receive widespread mainstream appeal and radio playtime.
Common is considered a “cred” artist, which has lead him to collaborations with the likes of De La Soul, Jadakiss, T.i, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Kanye West, Lily Allen, Erykah Badu, and Fort Minor.
2007’s Finding Forever was produced mainly by long-time collaborator, Kanye West.
Universal Mind Control is the 8th album from Chicago hip-hop artist Common.
