Next Tuesday, Common's new album, "Be" drops, with upcoming shows at the House of Blues in June. Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, decided it was time to come home to find inspiration for this album. He paired up with our city's hottest producer, Kanye West, and some great local talent to record his new album. The result is a return to his underground roots, including a collaboration with John Mayer.
