Common Penning Autobiography

Common is set to join Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Eminem…on book shelves that is. The Chicago MC has inked a deal with Atria Books to release his memoirs.

According to the Associated Press, the G.O.O.D. music rap star/actor enlisted Adam Bradley—who just edited the comprehensive, 800-plus page tome, The Anthology of Rap, that highlights some of rap’s greatest lyrics sheets—for help with writing his autobiography. Common, who provided the forward for Bradley’s collection, will name his book after his 1997 album, One Day It’ll All Make Sense.

The book is set to come out on June 2011. —Elan Mancini
