Ok Common, I see you

I'm always conflicted on questioning another artist about anything that they do. I mean my career isn't exactly at a point where I can question another's success or effort without always feeling like "Well, he's a lot further than you." (shrugs)

In this case though, I had a few questions for Common when Pharell produced Universal Mind Control single dropped. I just didn't completely get it. Couldn't really tell you whether the lyrics were wack to me cuz for the first time in his career, I couldn't get into the song enough to even try to understand. Now this isn't hate. Just because I happen not to care for something doesn't mean that it's hopeless, after all, this is just MY! opinion. lol

That being said, I knew all I had to do was wait for the song that would show me that Common was still, well...Common. Patience has apparently paid off. Courtesy of http://www.nalden.net//newsitem/825/ via OKP I came across this song "Gladiator." I think this song is bangin! (for a change lol) Let's hope that UMC can bring forth more bangers like this. We'll have to wait til Dec 9th

Common got the dopest team around him. Neptunes are nice but not for the whole album. He shoulda had a more collective effort. Dreamatchups i would love to see Common with - madlib, black milk, jake one, pete rock, questlove, premiere, justice, mgmt, ratatat, paul rubin, Dan the Automator, Sa-Ra.
Spread the love Sheed!
