In a dope interview that aired last night on Last Call with Carson Daly, Common talked about a variety of things in his vast world of music and acting. First, the new movie Luv, in which a few nice clips were played, and his role and inspiration there. Plus, his book One Day It'll All Make Sense, his response to people who don't associate hip hop and positivitity together (a smart one that cites the history of hip hop and brings it back to the present), and finally: the lead headline in the post title - his upcoming music.
Common says he's looking to release an EP associated with Luv sometime in January, and then following it up with his first ever mixtape (yup, that's right... first ever!). AND, we can expect a new album sometime in 2013. So Common's keeping things moving musically and that news alone is something I'm excited for.
