Common apparently wasn’t done ‘decoding’ his new album on his own YouTube channel and took some time to share his thoughts with shirt merchant’s side-hustle. He also delves into the backgrounds of his classic verse on the Black Star cut ‘Respiration.’



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
