Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Chocolate as Common's best work to date. The album introduces itself with a few somber, contemplative notes from an upright bass. Then the heavy strings awake from their slumber and start popping. A slurring analog keyboard line slides in. Juke joint piano begins to roll. Yes, Common says with a resounding confidence that instantly placates any holdover Electric Circus worries. Picayune flaws aside, the album's appeal stems from Common's passionate honesty. This invigorating trait means ballads like Love Is. and It's Your World don't melt into mush.

For years, Common has struggled with the mantle of Rapper You're Most Likely to Take Home to Your Mama. When Common is on, he's a fearless MC who can rhyme about anything from abortion 1997's Retrospect for Life to the sorry state of hip-hop 1994's I Used to Love . and still make your head nod. When he's off, he's dull and heavy-handed. Join DeadEndHipHop on Patreon to get access to this post and more benefits
