Hip Hop has been a large part of my life and without dating myself I’ll just say I’ve been listening to Common for 10+ yrs. His new LP Universal Mind Control has taken his infamous philosophical verse and laced it with Kanye’s electronic funk. The combination is almost too spicy (if that’s even possible).
Hip Hop’s lyrical content has dwindled over the years but Common’s conscious thoughts have remained one step above the rest. Proof that is pays to have your eyes wide open and a message worth sending. If you haven’t already downloaded this I highly recommend it.
