Hundreds gathered to welcome home award-winning hip hop artist and actor Common, who made a stop on Tuesday to promote his latest project.


The emcee launched One Day It’ll All Make Sense at Macy’s on State Street in downtown Chicago where he met fans and signed copies of his most recent project. The book is filled with letters to those close to him, and is accompanied with the poetic lyrics of the writer’s music. The novel reveals a look at the artist beyond the surface and the glamour of the celebrity life.

Fans took advantage of the opportunity to meet the writer behind the work, express their respect for his latest project and see a different facet of the multidimensional artist.
