Common’s potent, timely new album Black America Again is out today. In tandem with the release of the album, the veteran Chicago MC has released a short film of the same name. The 21-minute visual is full of quiet, unflinching imagery. It’s bookended by lingering, striking, black-and-white portraits of black people of all shades and shapes. There are also powerful scenes of the rapper in a deserted intersection rapping verses from the title track alongside a percussionist, black women performing ritual dances, and a tender, weary slave song sung by a woman as she walks through project buildings. Directed by Selma’s Bradford Young, and produced by 13th director Ava DuVernay, it’s stunning, and a perfect accompaniment to arguably Common’s most conscious and important album of his career. Watch it above.
