Rapper Common is set to lift the lid on his childhood and his rise to fame in a new autobiography. The hip-hop star has signed a deal to write a book about his life, which will explore his early days in his native Chicago, Illinois as well as his stellar music career.

"One Day It'll Make Sense" will be co-written by Adam Bradley and is set for release in June 2011 under Atria Books. Bradley has written books like "Book of Rhymes: The Poetics of Hip Hop", "The Anthology of Rap" and a book on Ralph Ellison titled "In Progress". Title to Common's book is the same to the title of his new album.

Atria further said that the book will also recall his exploits in the Hip-Hop industry with rappers like Kanye West, and his crossover into the world of acting in movies like "Terminator: Salvation", "American Gangster" and "Just Wright".
