Posted by , Sep 18, 2014 at 08:26pm

Watch Common talk about the creative process behind his classic hit "The Light".


In the newest episode of Complex’s Magnum Opus original series, Common is the next rapper featured to talk about the creative process and the events that led up to his first masterpiece, Like Water for Chocolate

Highlighting possibly his biggest hit off all time “The Light”, Com Sense talks about how the record came together and just how important it was to his career. He also chronicles going to Detroit with The Roots to link up with the song's producer, J Dilla, to make it all happen.

"It was one of those songs that when you're really pouring out heart, it's just coming from your soul. I just had to let the truth come out," Common says of "The Light." "It's no way I could mess that beat up."

If you got fourteen minutes to spare, then I strongly suggest you check out this interesting interview above.
