As Common prepares to unleash his Black America Again album on November 4, he’s adding yet another feather to his cap. In a nod to the Souls of Mischief classic “93 ’til Infinity,” the forthcoming FOX sitcom of the same name finds the Chicago native at the helm as executive producer.
The show tackles the current state of Hip Hop and revolves around a fictional ’90s rapper, who is struggling to understand his relevance in today’s more mainstream climate as he plots his next move.
In the process, he reconnects with a best friend from middle school, strives to juggle all of his responsibilities and family at the same time, and attempts to keep his fledgling career intact while maintaining his legacy.
Developed by How To Make it in America creator Ian Elderman, the show lists Common as its executive producer, alongside Thomas Kail, who has directed plays including the critically acclaimed Hamilton and Grease: Live!
No word yet on when it will premiere.
