It’s All Love: When Hip-Hop Gives Back


The rapper/author/actor/philanthropist not only wears the crown as the king of conscious hip-hop but also dons a passionate heart for connecting with communities and touching thousands of lives. The Common Ground Foundation uses the arts to expose young people to new opportunities. In addition, the foundation has developed education initiatives such as Common’s Dreamers & Believers Summer Youth Camp, as well as a mentoring program for students attending public schools in Chicago. However, Common does not limit his outreach to just his hometown: He’s partnered with national campaigns for Coca-Cola and frequently makes appearances speaking to students throughout the U.S.
