Common takes us cross-country for a whirlwind promotional tour. We’re Embedded with him at morning radio shows, record store signings and on stage. Then we head to his old neighborhood in Chicago where he explains how Barack Obama has raised the bar for all of hip-hop. Along the way, Mos Def, Pharrell, and Will.i.am testify as to why Common is one of the greatest in the game.
Plus, Swedish phenom Lykke Li storms San Francisco thrift shops to find an outfit for her show, and Bloc Party performs This Modern Love acoustic on a sidewalk in Paris.
First 10 minutes of the show belong to Common.
