Common’s ‘Black America Again’ Album & Short Film [WATCH]


Common released his 11th studio album Black America Again this past Friday (Nov. 4th).

If you are a Common fan, you should know the Chi-Town rapper rarely ever disappoints. You can almost always expect Common to deliver a few conscious bars over a dope hip hop and jazz infused melody. He’s constantly dropping knowledge while making you nod your head simultaneously.

Black America Again is 15 tracks of good music with features that include Bilal, BJ The Chicago Kid, PJ, John Legend, Syd, Marsha Ambrosius, and even Stevie Wonder.

In fact, Stevie Wonder is actually featured on the track titled after the album, Black America Again. Common even decided to create a short film to go with the track, which was directed by Bradford Young, who was the cinematographer for Ava DuVernay’s Selma film.

The 21-minute short is shot in black and white, which gives it that cinematic edge we all love in films.

Check out the album and short movie below. Enjoy.
