In spirit of AAHH! FEST, which was an unexpectedly phenomenal festival this year, it’s only appropriate to celebrate one of Chicago’s biggest names in hip hop: Common. He’s arguably one of the most respected rappers in the game and also the poster boy for the socially conscious rappers of today. Preaching since the 90s over mellow and tight jazz samples just makes common sense.
Chicago thanks you for the incredible show last night, Common.
