Press Release: Common's New Book In Stores Now

One Day It'll All Make Sense - $15.98 from Amazon.com!

Common has earned a reputation in the hip hop world as a conscious artist by embracing themes of love and struggle in his songs, and by sharing his own search for knowledge with his listeners. His journey toward understanding—expressed in his music and now in his roles in film and television—is rooted in his relationship with a remarkable woman, his mother, Mahalia Ann Hines.

In One Day It'll All Make Sense, Common holds nothing back. He tells what it was like for a boy with big dreams growing up on the South Side of Chicago. He reveals how he almost quit rapping after his first album, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, sold only two thousand copies. He recounts his rise to stardom, giving a behind-the-scenes look into the recording studios, concerts, movie sets, and after-parties of a hip-hop celebrity and movie star. He reflects on his controversial invitation to perform at the White House, a story that grabbed international headlines. And he talks about the challenges of balancing fame, love, and fatherhood.

One Day It'll All Make Sense is a gripping memoir, both provocative and funny.

AVAILABLE NOW!!!

ANIMAL NATION

Name: Animal Nation
From: Whistler, BC
Style: Hip Hop/Alternative

Animal Nation's laid-back, west coast sound has led to a stack of recent successes that truly represent their distinctly unorthodox lyricism combined with mad skills and trans-continental beats. Often called indie-hip-hop or inteli-hip-hop, the duo (Mike Armitage and Garnet Clare) blend their underground sound with concepts outside the norm. The duo's latest release, "Every Day In The Life" shoots out another dose of Animal Nation's unmistakable lyricism and some of the duo's greatest tracks to date.

Their music was featured in the MTV show Peak Season, which aired in Canada fall 2009 and on VH1 in the US and in 145 countries on MTV International spring 2010. Mike and Garnet were cast in supporting roles on Peak Season as themselves and their live performance at the Telus Ski and Snowboard Festival was featured in the show's finale. They have opened for the likes of Classified, Jully Black, Zion I, Hilltop Hoods, Sweatshop Union, Blackalicious and Buck 65 and have performed at several major festivals including 2010 Winter Olympics, Telus, Crankworx, Pemberton Music Festival, Shambala and Canada Day on Parliament Hill.

Every Day In The Life is the story of my one day, every day, for the last 8 years of my life. Each track focuses on a different part of my day, so that it begins in a dream, goes through waking up, and making breakfast, walking into work, working, finding and eating lunch, wandering aimlessly after work, arriving home, writing to myself and others, getting ready for and going to bed, and finally falling back in to dreaming again, to create a never-ending, every-day's-the-same, repeating story album. Every Day In The Life.

Animal Nation is: Steige "Tall Man" Turner, and Mike "Armadillo Slim" Armitage. Animal Nation formed in 2004 after a heated argument between the two not-then members, over the quality of another band's performance. The members of Animal Nation are hesitant to call their music 'hip-hop' because a lot of hip-hop sucks. The members of Animal Nation think this is unfortunate because they really, really love good hip-hop, but know that the general population thinks that hip-hop sucks as well. Animal Nation is the greatest band you will ever hear. After listening to Animal Nation it will henceforth be impossible to appreciate any other sort of music that is not Animal Nation. You're life will be changed. You will win the next big lottery. Your hair will never thin and your skin never sag. Your children will never try drugs, because you never did, and therefore know that they have nothing to offer. Animal Nation. Your new neighbours, the three blonde Swedish girls that moved in next door, will invite you and your girlfriend over for a 'group massage', and your girlfriend will accept. Animal Nation.

Prison Officials Block T.I.'s Lawyer From Fighting Re-Imprisonment


From TMZ:

0913_ti_tmz_EX

T.I. is up the creek without a paddle -- because TMZ has learned, prison officials in Atlanta have barred the rapper's lawyer from challenging the decision to put him back in prison.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons sent T.I.'s lawyer a letter yesterday, explaining the rapper was "not entitled to legal counsel" during the process by which officials review the decision to lock him up again.

T.I.'s lawyer originally sent the Bureau a letter last week, asking to be present at the hearings -- but the Bureau flat out rejected him.

According to the Bureau's response, two hearings have already occurred without T.I.'s lawyer present -- one last week and one the week before -- but it's unclear what transpired.

Gucci Mane Headed Back To Jail


From EURweb.com:

Rapper Gucci Mane will spend the next six months in a Georgia jail after admitting on Tuesday to pushing a woman out of his car earlier this year, reports Reuters.

The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, pleaded guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct, said Emily Gest, spokeswoman for the DeKalb County Solicitor-General’s Office.

According to police, the 31-year-old artist picked up a woman at a suburban Atlanta mall in January, invited her out for breakfast and then tried to offer her $150 to stop by a hotel with him.

When she refused, he pushed her out of his car while it was in motion. She was taken to the hospital with “soreness and pain.”

A judge ordered Mane to complete 12 weeks of anger management classes, plus pay the victim $5,090 for her medical bills and a $3,000 fine, Gest said.

“I am pleased that justice was achieved for the victim because this defendant’s behavior showed a willful disregard for a woman’s personal safety,” DeKalb Solicitor-General Sherry Boston said in a statement.

Mane previously served a six-month prison term in 2005 for assault. In 2009, he was behind bars for a year for violating probation for that assault.
