2013 is going to be a busy year for rap legend Common. On January 18th, his latest movie ‘LUV’ opens up in select theaters. The movie is a coming of age story about a young boy who lives with his uncle (played by Common). The uncle is trying to turn a new leaf in his life, and be a hero and mentor to the boy; but he falls back into his old, illegal ways, forcing the boy to choose to become like his hero, or follow his own path.
Common recently stopped by The Late Show With Jimmy Fallon to talk about the new film. He also talked about 3 new music projects he’s working on for this year, one of which will drop this month to coincide with the film’s release. Check out the interview below:
