In October 1994, Chicago's own Common released his second album, Resurrection. Common's been no stranger to our weekend playlists and so it's only fitting that we share this awesome event.

Tonight, Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park is hosting a 20th Anniversary Celebration for the release of the album. In 1998, the album was selected as one of Source's 100 Best Rap Albums, coming in at number nineteen.

The event is scheduled for this evening, Saturday Oct 11 at 9 p.m. at Emporium Wicker Park (1366 N. Milwaukee). There is a $10 cover charge. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Common's charity, Common Ground, which seeks to help youth through creative arts.

The track list is short this week, but it features many of the artists who will be playing at Emporium as well as the title track from Resurrection and a piece from Common's most recent album as well.
