Common recently stopped by the Staple showroom to chat with Jeff Staple, 15 years after Jeff had designed the artwork for his single on Rawkus Records titled “One-Nine-Nine-Nine.” In this latest episode of 1-2-1 w/jeffstaple, the two veterans reminisce about old records and new projects, social responsibility, and the creative process. The Chicago native speaks candidly about the inspiration behind his music and even recites a few bars. Common’s 10th album Nobody’s Smiling acts as a reunion with No I.D. as executive producer and features guest artists Vince Staples, Big Sean and Jhené Aiko. Nobody’s Smiling is currently available for purchase on iTunes.
