Rapper Common appeared on CNN and discussed his upcoming plans to release his album which will be centered around Chicago’s violence. He plans to name his album “Nobody’s Smiling” and plans to team up with fellow Chicago native Kanye West to take a new initiative to provide 20,000 of Chicago’s youth with employment. He says, “It’s my duty to reach out to young people in Chicago, it’s my way of giving back. ‘Cause I’ve been afforded a chance to go out and live out my dreams, and I’m still dreaming. I wanna inspire and open up the gateways for the younger people in Chicago to go live their dreams.” Watch the video for the rapper’s positive plans.
