Okayplayer was on the scene last week when Common performed at the Galapagos Art Space. They write:
Common stepped through Brooklyn a few days ago for a live show at Galapagos Art Space, but rather than supporting a new video or upcoming album the multi-talented rapper/actor/poet was here to support the Ajile L. Turner Foundation, which is very much a family affair for Com. Ajile–who died in a motorcycle accident 4 years ago–was Common’s first cousin. The foundation which bears his name–which supports music education, specifically helping school children acquire the instruments they need to master their craft–is run by his aunt Mattie Turner.
