One of hip hop’s finest MC’s, Common, speaks on the definition of artistry, in terms of music, photography, visual arts, etc. Check out the clip below.
Common, co-curator with The Roots of the 2009 Hennessy Artistry Series, defines artistry in music and other arts, and reveals a secret about where he might come from. Series dates: Chicago 9/12; Atlanta 9/19; Houston 10/3; New York 10/7. More at Hennessy Artistry.
Common > most of your favorite rappers. Truth.
Oh and by the way, I will be at that show in Chicago. Shouts to my homey Brent from ICED Media.
