It has been 20 years since Ice Cube and Common settled their Hip Hop beef. Now, both artists have found themselves on stage performing together for a great cause. Ice Cube gave a surprise cameo performance and joined Common on stage to perform “Straight Outta Compton” “F*ck Tha Police“, and “Today Was a Good Day.” Common then performed his hit “Go.” Another dope moment for any Hip Hop fan to witness.
AAHH! FEST by COMMON has become one of the largest music festivals and just made its 2nd return to Chicago. After a year hiatus, the festival featured performances from local-area talent, as well as up and coming artists like, Tink and Taylor Bennett. The festival was created by Hip Hop artist, Academy Award-winning actor, and philanthropist Common, who was born and raised in Chicago. the mission and purpose of the festival was to raise awareness and bring a sense of relief and peace of the continued violence facing Chicago youth.
Funding from the festival supports year-round programming for both the Common Ground Foundation and Donda’s House–whose missions are to offer positive alternatives for youth.
