This track was supposed to be on Finding Forever – honestly cannot see why it wouldn’t make the cut? This track is ill. I’m on my 4th listen already.

Peace, Love & Common

Consequence Feat Kanye West, Common, John Legend, Kid Cudi & Big Sean – “Whatever U Want (Remix)” (CDQ) by Speeakz

I didn’t bother with the radio rip, I knew the CDQ would drop shortly after. Here we go…

That line up is too serious. G.O.O.D Music has definitely arrived. Damn. This is pretty epic, can’t even front.

Peace, Love & Whatever U Want

Still like this track, but the video? Damn, they could have come better than this, surely. Video comes a bit late too, right?

Peace, Love & Common

Classic Moment: Common Feat Mary J Blige – “Come Close” by Speeakz

This weekend I completely shut off from the outside world. Turned my phone off, disconnected from the Internet – just took some time out, ya know? Of course, music was accompanying me all the way through. I listened to Common quite a bit over the past few days. Not necessarily his newest stuff, but stuff from Can I Borrow a Dollar, Like Water for Chocolate and One Day It’ll All Make Sense.

…Then I played Electric Circus, an album I was gunned for liking back in the day and one that I still proudly fuxx with today. Many hated this album and I can understand why, but for me – it’s a dope, experimental album. Even when listening to it now, it just seemed like Lonnie had a lot of get off his chest, musically at least, and so just threw it all into one album. The LP as a whole isn’t very cohesive or very melodically fitting – but somehow…It works. “Come Close” which features Mary J Blige is the closet you get to ‘classic’ Common on this LP – it’s just a real nice track I like revisiting from time to time. I think the video, which takes up our classic moment spot this week, is also pretty sweet…

Enjoy.

Peace, Love & Classic Moment

P.s The track is produced by The Neptunes, did ya know that?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Cannot stand this track. It ain’t grown on me one bit. Sorry. On the upside, I like the video.

Peace, Love & KiD CuDi
