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.
