Holy crap, I heard a sample of this on Amazon and thought that it sounded out of character for Common. But listening to the whole thing... damn, man. It's actually pretty damn good. And it doesn't sound corny like I thought it would based on that sound snippet....
Real Talk Common know wat he talkin bout betta ask sumbody. Those who say this aint him, well don't test a nigga......
flex always fucking up songs
Fuck Drake. Fuck homo rap music.
Common Neva been a gangster he needs to stop jus cuz u no gangster doesn't make u one
You don't know ish about Comm's history.
Don't like the song, this ain't Common. But I agree with the message.
I ain't like a Common joint in a minute. That shit was hot. Drake seems to be very unwanted in hip-hop recently. I'm down for black ballin' a nigga. Lol
Yo COM IS BACK!
thats sum RAW COMMON!!! BOMB!!!
So goddamn sweet its practically ear candy...5 stars
Can't wait for the album to drop!
its hot man
man if i was still alive, this fool would be working in KFC
YEAH RIGHT #OUTHISLANE...So is he supposed be going on Drake??? Thats what it sounds like too me!! So is That when U think a nigga should drop his most gangsterist shit, against a creampuff..I lls @ the nigga who wants to fight the nigga that don't wanna fight
@Anonymous you should remain anoymous because you DON'T know what your talking about. In the first 4 bars of the song 'Bitch in You' that he is addressing Ice Cube, and that its ridiculous to think he's dissing a whole coast. the song only exist as a response to Ice Cube swinging first "lyrically". DO YOUR DAMN HOMEWORK!
B-Dizzle he did get involved, he had beef with Ice Cube
Yeah u IDIOT!! COMMON isn't a NEW ARTIST...nigga been Rappin since Tupac was... he jus wasn't involved in that whole EAST/WEST shit cuz hes from the CHI
Your words are false. Common was well established during 2pac's presence. nice try. that comment is more geared for the likes of lil wayne ja rule etc.
Common is a framer of this. hip hop. He is well-respected by everybody for a reason. Lyrically he goes in 100% and NEVER strays off into the insipid like the rest of fame heavy "artists."
Dayum Common is Back! I am definitely coppin this album! The only album I didn't cop was the last album...I got all his other joints! Common is bringing dope hip hop back! Hip hop is coming back! Wackness is about to fall bad time! Roots, Nas, Common..all at the same time! You got Yelawolf! wooo! I'mma be good for Christmas this year! UGGH!
Dope!! People should check these guys out they show alot of promise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaJCxKwXvwA
He goes hard on this
To everyone asking who Common's talking about.. He's just doing what an MC does.. He even says it in the beginning "I'm just doing what I do"...
If Com wants to talk about someone on track, he won't hesitate to say his name in it. So don't sweat it.. Just appreciate the fact that Common just fucked this beat up... (And now it can't walk straight)
It's so good I don't even think I heard Flex's voice taggin it
FIRE FIRE FIRE yes this is what i need hip hop hood shit gimmie more i need nas on the remix or jay not wayne or drake they dont fit in on this one
Fucking brilliant. o.m.g - common sense bitches 5/5
5ou giving for sure
ridiculous....his production is insane....
MARK YALL CALENDERS, THE ROOTS UNDUN AND THE DREAMER, THE BELIEVER. BEST HIP HOP ALBUMS OF 2011. Mark my words.
Common>>>>>>all the bullshit hype artist that getting airplay right now. Dudes dont seem to realize that you judge an artist by more than one listen of a record
i think this track was alright, but for common to say he's to hip hop like what obama is to politics, i think was a bad idea. or maybe it was right and exact, hmm, what ya'll think?
I think he's just calling himself "The President" of Hip-Hop, not comparing resumes in their respective fields.
He said what he wanted to!
I love people that think Com cant spit! 'Ya'll look so sweeeet!' LMAO!
ARE YOU GUYS HIGH ? THIS TRACK IS HIGH CLASS GARBAGE . COMMON TRYNA SOUND LIKE HE USED TO IN 94 BUT ITS EVIDENT HE CAN LIVE THOSE YEARS ANYMORE.
First off, you spelled your name wrong (Fag)
Secondly... Shut up
Your out of your mind!Have you even heard ressurection?!? He clearly does not sound the same first of all, second this track is bananas! If your not feeling this your priorities are F@#$'ed up!
Man! I played the first 10 seconds...And had to REWIND! Crazy hiphop Common straight legend...
..EVEN JAY-Z SAID..... "TRUTHFULLY I WANNA RHYME LIKE COMMONSENSE.."
Jay-z sucks, fo-real. Yeah that goes to show you though he is a marketeer, worried more about sales over quality, at least he has good taste in music though
i did five.. i aint bin rhymin like common since...
I am 40 years old. The list has 6, Common has always been in my top 5 since the 90's, I just added Em. Common has a few aggressive tracks on every album. Common was taking shots at a lot of rappers. igloo, your comment sounds sweeeet
DAMN! niggas cant even come off aggressive without the almighty internet generation wondering who he was talkin about, re-adjusting their top 5 GOAT list and just downright smothering the moment! Its called being an EMCEE! A LYRICIST! The shit alot of you were afraid of supporting not too long ago. when this is what you do you can say 'sweet' and get technical without actually talkin about somebody! damn yall are stuck! Youll kill any momentum a song has before it even gets gets started with all these opinions and emotions...geez...sometimes just let the song be what it is and enjoy it without trying to fit it one of your sissy top whatever list...
FACT:COMMON SENSE IS YOUR FAVORITE RAPPERS FAVORITE RAPPER
Nas Pac Jay Common Biggie Pun Em (Greatest ever)
DAM THIS IS THE FUCKING TRUTH I SWEAR IT FEELS LIKE FRESH PRINCE IS BACK ON NBC AFTER HEARING 3 SINGLES AND NONE OF THEM WATERED DOWN FOR RADIO PLAY
SICCCKKK!i wanna who he is talkin bout
Sounds like he's just doing what an MC does... If Common wants to talk about someone, He won't hesitate to put his name in the track. Just ask Cube...
sounds like he talkin bout drake!
AYO I WAS IN TEARS WHEN COM SAID "MOTHAFUCKA"! HOMIE WENT CRAZY ON THIS SHIT!
lol hell yea, i was thinkin the same thing
my fault he said broads
This is great! why did he mention Pras name towards the end?
he went dumb on this shit
yes sir 5.00 tell them hoe ass niggas, yes THIS IS THAT RAW shit . Damm who is common getting at damm haven 't herd com go this hard since the ice cube mack 10 and wc killing that took place on i see the bitch in you
Stop saying he's back, Com never left.
Finding Forever had some dope shieeet on it man!! So I would have to agree, common definitely has never left.
Ayo son... you act like Common never made Universal Mind Control and Finding Forever. Get ya mind right b.
common is the muh fukin TRUTH!!
but who is he talkin bout? anybody know?
Def buying this...he better sell at least more then J. Cole...
foreal foreal...it's sad when the new buzz gets more attention than the classic artists like common. J Cole is alright, but he is no common sense, or roots, etc etc
bringin that fire, strait from the southside, thats whats up Com!!!
The track is pure NO.ID...BUT you can hear the ill- effects of COM'S 'extended' stay in POPMUSIC.This new flow does not compliment him at all,and distracts you from his obvious skill.And the real sad part is,the same"sweet artist"he disses in this track,he has(or will)do a collaboration with..so whats the point in calling them out?
funny that the first comment i read is negative, yet 52 out of 58 people gave this 5 stars. lol
who the hell is he talking about? couldn't be drake but that's the first person i came up with...lil wayne maybe? shit ion know but he's definitely coming at them.
Looking forward to this album
Com taking it back...sounds like "Bitch In You" part II for somebdoy....all these sweet rappers.
I can't stand it when people say COMMON IS BACK. HE AINT NEVER LEFT!. Lauryn Hill said it best: "And even after all my logic and my theory I add a "Mother Fucker" so ya'll ignant niggas hear me". On Be Common lyrically went ape shit and the production was incredible. Gimme a break
i think that sweet reference is for kanye west gay ass. common battled kanye before youtube that ole its safe to say Common Sense is ressurected
lol. G.O.O.D. Music all day.
Kanye is Commons fam. stop it.
Craziest shit I've heard from Common since Like Water for Chocolate. I fucking love this shit!
Told y'all, dude needed to hook back up with NO ID. It's a wrap.
Com Bringing Back That Raw Hip Hop The Dreamer The Believer Gon Be A Classic Lp.Every Track He Dropped Off Here Crazie So Far Ghetto Dreams Blue Sky And Now Sweet All Go Hard Lets Get Chicago!!!
Common's new album The Dreamer, The Believer will drop November 22, 2011!!!!!!!!
MAKE SURE YOU BUY THAT SH*T, SUPPORT REAL RAPPERS. Common is one of the best emcees of our time. #LEGEND
He's back!!! Real hip-hop right here, can't wait for the album....No. i.d on the trackkk!
dope but change your flow common
dope finally common raps on dope beats and not that weak jazzy shit
HAH! DO YOU MEAN THE CLASSIC KANYE PRODUCED ALBUM "BE"? Did you know that hiphop comes from blues, jazz, soul, funk, disco, etc etc etc? word
omg this is amazing...Common at his absolute finest. Hip-hop at its absolute finest. Wow
Be and Finding Forever are both great albums, but Common hasn't sounded like this since Resurrection.
Listen to Common stuntin just to do it , because he never does.. hahaha. Whooooooo!!! Common Sense is goin off!!! everything I've heard leaked out for this new album or recorded within the last 6 months is FIRE!! Lets Go!! Some G.O.O.D. Music finally! Even Kanye aint makin G.O.O.D. music (whooo! yeah you like that) WorD Common's album is going to be dOpE!
NO I.D is a problem on the production TIP.. COM'S rhymes are crazy.. I can't wait for the album to drop.
Clsico No Debate
This was wayyy tooo good 100/5
lmao this nigga goin off!!!
sweet ass bitch motherfucker
It's nice to have this nigga back. He ripped it.
Nas (dot) Com.
COMMON IS GOING TO DROP ANOTHER CLASSIC ALBUM AGAIN
This that old Common Vs. Cube Common Sense right here!! Tough!
im gonna jump off a fuking roof right now!!! lol this is fukin nuts! this is my 3rd time hitting repeat!
I know homie! FUCK! Shit is the dopest shit I heard in years!!! Common spitting like a motherfucker on here!
I absolutely fucking LOVE this!
damn Common dropping some bars..blue sky was dope and dis lil freestyle or wateva is raw too
Com is back fool.
Nah, he's an actor now. Enough with the rapping. Starting to look like snoop, smh..
you dumb fuck
HOLY FUCK!!!! COMMON SENSE HAS RETURNED WITH FURY!!!!!! CAN'T WAIT FOR ALBUM!!!!!!!!!
This album is going to be dope
This song is dope, but what happened to the effortless flow he used to have?...
sick song btw
he called me sweet.... but i'm trying to change :p
Common just killed that ish I can't wait to get his album that brother went off.
damn listen to kidz in the hall middle of the map part 2, same sample but better beat.
Common beastin on this one. But who is he getting at. Please i need to know.lol
Why would he be getting at hov? #1 Jay-z has NEVER sung, and #2 they mob with the same people (No ID, Kanye, etc.) Wouldn't be surprised if they all hung together.
He's either getting at Hov (note the Sinatra mention) or just rappers who are constantly singing in their songs.
No I.D. really bringin the best out of Common...Lyrics were good, Beat kinda sound like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with a twist to it...But overall its a decent track 3 out of 5...
Drums are sick!
This is gonna be my favorite album next to Section 80, I can tell.
He ain't even gotta be gettin at anybody. Sometimes emcees that been doin it for so long that go and do other thangs for a minute and come back to music jus gotta come grimy on a track or two. He IS Hip Hop FIRST, don't think the book or the acting have made him forget that. Sometimes ya jus gotta REMIND kats.
Yo this shit it TOOOOOOO raw! Yo Com' is coming son! Com is coming! Let Common n NaS do an album together n shit would shut down the game. Fuck "Watch the Throne". Niggas would take the throne n set the shit on fire. Let No I.D, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Salaam Remi n Alchemist produce the shit n you'd be lookin at some legendary music right there
fuck a nigga that don'y give this five stars!
shits crazy, com fucking ya'll up.
DAMNNN ALL YALL LAME MC'S SEE WAT HAPPENS WHEN COMMON TURNS MEGATRON BEAST MODE!!?
shots fired. jay always calls himself sinatra
Common, Jay-Z, and Nas where all just chilling together @ Nas' birthday party last month. Its all love between them. Stop startin shit, lol.
Agreed. Not only that, they have the same circle of friends in the industry. No ID, Kanye, Pharrell, etc.
I doubt it.
Common has always stated he's had a great deal of respect and admiration for Jay.
Hov has also said Common is one of his top five favorite MCs.
definitely sounds like a jab to Jigga, also "I rock my own chain", weird though
Sweet Ass Bitch Motherfucker
haha, i guess u beat me 2 it
nice sound..perfect for HH dance routines..
My friends say Common is garbage, but Oj Da Juiceman, Wale, Meek Millz, Young Jeezy are better. He's a damn clown.
Common spits that real shit, fuck all that dumb it down music.
I wonder who Com is getting at on this monster track. 5 Stars
i think he is going at drake. catch his metaphors.
U RIGHT HONEST TRUTH, AND NIGGA BE SELLIN THOSE COPIES TOO, AT LEAST 7-8 GOLD ALBUMS. 5STARS
Man yall actin like Common ain't been dope since Can I borrow a dollar this nigga is a elite emcee
prodigal son has returned
Damn Common! This shit is gutter! 5 stars!
Imagine what Nas.Com would sound like if they both when in like this...game over.
album colab on the way homie cant wait
Every single track was dope as fuck, can't wait.
definately the hotness on this one. every track off this album sounds like classic common sense. i may have to drop a few bars over this
In the words of raekwon: "this type of sh1t that makes you wanna punch a n!gg@ on the face!"

Damn. 5 stars.
HIP HOP at its best, that real gritty from the heart shit. not for the charts or sales, if anyone hates this u might as well go listen to lil wayne or any other poppy 2000's rapper. 5 or better rating if u a 80's baby. Common Sense never left he jus made dat money.
This isnt exactly the metaphoric monster Common who made "Pineapple Orange Juice" but none the less a refreshing to hear some fire...Polo is pedestrian support Jackin Ralph jackinralph.com
