Let's appreciate probably one of the most unappreciated rappers of all time.🤬 always take Common for granted and dude needs to be shown his proper respect.Truly One of the Greats.

    "Ashes and snow falls, I wonder when the roll call for heaven gon' come
    Forever gon' come
    It's a cold world and I can never go numb
    Look fear in the eyes, say I'm never gon' run
    Sooner than later, I know the cheddar gon' come
    For now I write the world letters to better the young
    On tree by jury, together we hung
    Now we let our chains hang, and gang bang to maintain
    Afghanistan goin' through the same thing
    It trickles down, at each other we aim pain
    I shoot for stars, peace and exclusive cars
    Through the wire I learned to earn hard
    Watched gangstas turn 🤬 in the midst of War
    No matter how much I elevate, I kiss the floor
    It was in the wind when she said Dilla was gone
    That's when I knew we lived forever through song"

    I'ma use self control instead of birth control
    Cause $315 ain't worth your soul
    $315 ain't worth your soul
    $315 ain't worth it

    Common is top 5 DOA. He's an undefeated Hip Hop legend and a lyrical mastermind. His conscious and confident streak will be remembered for decades, even centuries, to come. And he's a pretty damn good actor too.

    Best hip hop song of all time

    Cosign completey...everything about it is brilliant.

    But yeah, got a lot of love for Common. Fantastic albums in Resurrection and Be, great partnerships with No I.D., Dilla and Kanye and one of my favourite rappers.

    On diss song to Ice Cube and the westside connection he said Cube hadn't done 🤬 since AmeriKKKas most Wanted.

    I was like is this 🤬 serious? Immediately after AMW Cube dropped Death Certificate (not to mention the 🤬 at Will EP). That dumb line made the whole diss irrelevant and invalid.
