Tune in and turn up

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.
