How on Earth have I lived in the nation’s capital for 36+ years and never heard of the jamboree that is the H Street Festival?

What Wouldn’t Jesus Do?

Blackjesuscover

Detracting from his previous format of animation, McGruder brings his new creation to life as a live-action sitcom, introducing Gerald “Slink” Johnson in the role of “Jesus”, living in present day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.

 

A TALE OF 2 CITIES 

common-nobodys-smiling-cover

Common could have easily titled his tenth release “Chicago: The Musical” if playwrights a generation ago hadn’t beat him to it. The picture Common, along with his Chi-Town guest stars, paint of the city is one where fond childhood memories can, at any moment, turn into forlorn laments to dead homies. The album functions, in a way, as a love letter to the Windy City. Common is grateful for the hardships he endured in his formative years, knowing, without them, he would not be the well-rounded artist/man he is today. Com uses a wider palette than many of his Chi-Town compatriots to paint a full picture of the city’s urban lifestyle, the highs and lows. He lets us know there’s more to “Chiraq” than the blood splattered sensationalism we’ve been reading on news headlines for the past few years.
