Entertainment – Common talks ‘Suicide Squad’, gun violence


Rapper and actor Common, who will be in the upcoming movie, “Suicide Squad,” said he has something that reminds him of his time filming the movie. “I’ve got a scar now from this burn where I kept shooting a gun and the [fake]bullets were going into my chest,” he said. Common spoke to CNN at the American Black Film Festival in Miami this week about gun violence, which has plagued his hometown of Chicago. He says everyone has a role to play in ending gun violence, including rappers. “I like to focus on the [artists]who do speak up,” he said. “You do have the people like the Kendrick Lamar’s and the Chance [the rapper]’s who say things in their music. You have to find the people who have it engrained in them to speak up for different social issues.”
