New album by Chi-Town's Common. 20+ years in the game and still kickin'. The album is produced entirely by Common's early partner and Kanye mentor, No I.D. "Rewind That" is a No I.D. / J Dilla tribute featuring a sweet sample of Eleanore Mills' "Telegram." "Speak My Piece" features a sample of "Hypnotize" from none other than Biggie Smalls. The record has a gloomy/dark vibe going on, owing to the fact the album title derives from the violence that currently plagues Chicago.
R.I.P. Jay Dee and Big Poppa.
And R.I.P. Scene. Ain't it sad y'all had to wait this long for a real release? I guess no one cares to race anymore, since that rule change makes pre-releasers irrelevant. Common sense? Oh well, enjoy your new shitty scene.
