Magnum Opus: The Making of Common's The Light (Video)


Complex continue their fantastic web series "Magnum Opus" with the making of Common's classic Jay Dee produced track "The Light". As well as Common himself, they talk to the song's inspiration Erykah Badu, fellow Soulquarian James Poyser, Detroit's Frank Nitt and even Bobby Caldwell, whose own song was sampled for the record. 

They also talk about the creation of the video with its director. Erykah Badu, who appears in the visual, even addresses the joke that any man she's involved with ends up in crocheted pants!
