Common and Oprah first worked together back in 2014 on the hit movie Selma and it seems they have continued to build on that meeting as they are now working together again. This time the two are planning on releasing a new project a docu-series called Justice USA about the criminal justice system that will be on Oprah’s OWN network and Discovery Plus.
Common told Deadline “I’m proud of this series because it takes an honest look at the criminal justice system and highlights its need for reform. One of the greatest problems with the justice system is its dehumanization of people. But we have the ability to change that. My hope is this documentary brings visibility and change to the criminal justice system in the most humane way.
That should be good.

The great legendary hip hop icon Biz Markie’s passing affected so many people and that’s because of his personality and how he approached life…and that same love went into his music.

I still haven’t got paid for that record.” Cool V cites royalties, and signing “an incredibly bad contract” as factors and adds, “It trickled down. So, we never made money off the record. But, we made the money off the shows and we had a great performing career.
