Common x Derrick O. Boateng

Iconic rapper Common drops a new LP and joins forces with many of the great (Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz, Black Thought, and more) while using a selection of artworks by Derrick Ofosu Boateng for his album covers. “A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1 is affirmation. It’s recognition. It’s elevation. It’s music to go with a movement. Because the truth is, there is still so much work to do,” Common said in a statement. 

In a recent Instagram live stream Common talks to Derrick about finding common ground in creating art that connects people and communities. “I created Music Makes the Pain Fade in 2019 as an homage to peace and love for the people of my country, Ghana,” Derrick says. Something Common stands behind, explaining that an homage to love for the people is exactly what ‘A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1’ is about.
