What if we told you that Jeff Staple actually designed one of Common‘s album covers back in the day? As crazy as it sounds, the world really is much smaller than we think. Being the latest guest on Jeff’s 1-2-1 series, the Chicago emcee steps to the conversation with renewed energy and wisdom.
Talking about his first vinyl record, his classic song “I used to love H.E.R”, his experiences working with Kanye and a whole lot more. Touching on the inspiration behind his latest album, Nobodys Smiling, Com touches on how the new artists of today keep him focus and connected to the scene. Seeing Jeff tell him about the cover he designed and showing him his own handwriting on the back is worth clicking play alone though. Peep game.
