yea I didn't know he went to FAMU until I read it on the uncf website, there are a whole lot of entertainers that I didn't know about like Toni Braxton(Morgan State) Erykah Badu(Grambling)Brian Mcknight(Oakwood) Yolanda Adams(Tennessee State). But back to Common some guys at my lunch table said that they heard it's supposed to be the best hip hop album of the year.

Then go somewhere young dork... stop lookin at the post lol. ANNNNYWAAAY.... Common has been one of my top 3 MC's ever since i first heard I USED TO LOVE H.E.R. on RapCity back in the day when they played the underground stuff. I was sold when I hear 6th sense later on. I bought every album except his very first one and tomorrow i'll have BE. Its rare these days that i find artist, especially MC's, that speak to where i'm at in life on a level that i can relate to completely. Common never fails yo... not to mention in terms of mastering his craft and just skills... dude is one of the rawest out there. I was listening to the 6th sense and heard something in the 3rd verse that goes with the stuff being talkin about in here. Check it out... "Somedays I take the L to gel with the real world Got on at 87th, stopped by this little girl She recited raps, I forgot where they was from In 'em, she was saying how she made brothers **** I start thinking, how many souls hip-hop has affected How many **** folks this art resurrected How many nations this culture connected Who am I to judge one's perspective? Though some of that Sh*t y'all pop true it, I ain't relating If I don't like it, I don't like it, that don't mean that I'm hating I just want to innovate and stimulate minds Travel the world and **** the times Escape through rhythms in search of peace and wisdom Raps are smoke signals letting the streets know I'm with 'em For now I appreciate this moment in time Ball players and actors be knowing my rhymes" -Common That my friends is as real as it gets lol... Holla... (dang its been a minute since in the music forum... been missing some good stuff)
Thanks for that great input!

Im in love with Common and his music!! I love his poetic vibe he puts into his music, his aura,his body, every thing. What matters most is his music though. This album is contantly ringing in my ears I love all the tracks especially Go, The Food, The Say and of course Testify. This album is my personaly classic. I like Electric Circus to even though some peeps didn't like it! :grin:
