Common is out to make a real statement with his new album, Black America Again. With the record now in stores, the Chicago MC has released an accompanying short film, also called “Black America Again,” which takes viewers on a visually powerful tour through Chicago. The 21-minute video pays tribute to Freddie Gray and finds Common spitting his rhymes in the street.

Black America Again is out now featuring appearances from Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Bilal, Marsha Ambrosius and BJ The Chicago Kid.
