Common - Let Love 2019

I was not expecting this, but there it was.

Looks like his book Let Love Hav the Last Say, inspired some music.

Always a fan of this man's career. This a very interesting direction he's going in.

Common announces details of upcoming album and releases new single, ‘Hercules’

Common-920x583.jpg

Common has shared a new single, ‘Hercules’ which is taken from his upcoming new album, ‘Let Love.’ You can watch the new single’s accompanying video below.

The new album will be released on August 30 and will mark his debut on Lorna Visa Recordings. His new single features Swizz Beatz and in the video, Common can be seen thwarting a robbery at a video store. Vince Staples also makes a cameo in the video as a cashier.

Speaking about his new album, Common said: “This album is inspired by the book, Let Love Have The Last Word which gave me a path to write about things I had never written about before. It forced me to go deeper and because I opened up about so many things in the book, I was charged to go to raw, personal and spiritual places in the music.


“Production-wise, I knew that the music had to have depth, soul and dimension to it. I wanted the musicianship and the spirit of what live music brings but it also had to have something raw and basement about it. When my team said, ‘You should do some music revolving around the book,’ I just took that energy and went running into my artistry without focusing on anything else.”

He added: “So this album is the culmination of this journey, this passion and this Divine Love that I have for one of God’s greatest gifts – Music.”

Good Morning Love
(feat. Samora Pinderhughes)

[Samora Pinderhughes:]
When we wash all our pain away
We say, "Oh, my Lord"
When we can't make it through the day
We pray, oh, my Lord
It's a test coming to my faith
We pray, oh, my Lord, mmh
Will my people ever be safe?
In the land that takes us and breaks us, I can't be sure

[Common:]
Walking with the Lord, I see footprints
My mama always told me use my good sense
Common always looking for the good sense
Since we all got good in our essence
In the hood sense, we all good anyway
That's why you always hear another dollar, 'nother day
I see the day as a new beginning
Movement of the people, movement of the women
To get the Earth spinning in the right direct
This movie of life, sometimes might project
Acts, scenes that don't seem serene
I light palo santo, put on Love Supreme
And get into the being of the great I am
That's when I get to seeing just how great I am
Many many times from mistakes, I ran
But I'm just a cake, let me bake, goddamn
I pray I don't forsake my man
And whenever I fall, on faith, I land
Imperfections, resurrections
In the mirror staring at God's reflection
Reflecting on my aggressions
On my progressions, on my obsessions
There's a lesson in not feeling less
And in seeing life itself as a blessing

[Samora Pinderhughes:]
When we wash all our pain away
We say, "Oh, my Lord"
When we can't make it through the day
We pray, oh, my Lord
It's a test coming to my faith
We pray, oh, my Lord, mmh
Will my people ever be safe?
In the land that takes us and breaks us, I can't be sure

[Common:]
Yeah
The jubilee of a newer me
Giving my enemies something new to see
My community, they be fueling me
In the struggle of us, there's a unity
The moral universe stay schooling me
Will the king of kings really rule in me?
I'm an instrument, stay in tune with me
This orchestrated by Karriem, Samora, Boom, and me
If agape had a Cupid, she'd be shooting me
This rap here is fear's eulogy
Escape rooms with glasses of wine
Just another crutch for my brokenness
A term that I got from my therapist
As a black man, I feel I should be sharin' this
In the hood they say we crazy and we derelicts
But we needed for our kids and our marriages
The old folks say we don't do that
But taking care of self is the new black
Unconventional ways, unconditional ways
Mediation, mindfulness, it's just given to praise
I'm in a phase, all I see is victory
You on that wave, then come and get with me
I only want what's meant for me
And say the things that's sent to me
In penitentiaries, I met the most enlightened
Finding the losses, Heaven's excitement
I write with a force of a kid that wanted to
Be in The Source, but that changed, of course
I maintained the sauce and became a boss
I apologize if I came across
As judgmental, or self-righteous
'Cause in you, I see his likeness

[Samora Pinderhughes:]
When we wash all our pain away
We say, "Oh, my Lord"
When we can't make it through the day
We pray, oh, my Lord
It's a test coming to my faith
We pray, oh, my Lord, mmh
Will my people ever be safe?
In the land that takes us and breaks us, I can't be sure

I liked the album. Wasn't enough to make me wanna rush out and buy it like Be, Electric Circus or Finding Forever (my three favs) but it was good. 7/10
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Nice.

We have a running joke in my house. Have you seen Common today?
Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.

HER Love

.

One more try
We have too far to stop, now
Yeah, Dilla
One more try
It is all that we have now

Two DJ's, one microphone
We freestyle, we write at home
It don't, it don't, uh, uh, we go on
You the one, I can't leave alone
You grown, I know you grown
When I'm in you, I feel home
We in the house of love, no lie
Appreciate you more, as time goes by
When it's truly true, it don't die
I see you in L.A., I see you in NY
I see you in the A, I see you in the Chi
I hear you when Jay still make the song cry
Truthfully I wanna rhyme like common sense
You the one, that gave me that confidence
You the one, that told me 'bout consciousness
And said see beyond, my metropolis
You put the booga booga loop, pop lockin' this (We're too far, now)
We too far, ain't no stoppin' us

Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are
Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are

Here, here, here, here, here, here, here we go
They say that, that love makes you grow
You've been sense-sense-sensational
Instrume-eentational
In my life, you've been vocal
But at times, I felt like I didn't know you
Now I know, you had to grow too
And experience life so you can know you
We all change, for what it's worth
You an angel and still down to Earth
In many ways you like my religion
When no one else did, to me you'd listen
Gangstas, Gods, you hugged and kiss 'em
No matter you stayed in my system
Your eyes glisten, you talk vision of partyin'
And gettin' people out of prison
Through the struggle you taught us to Nipsey Hussle
That's why we all love you

Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are
Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are

You gave me a voice in the world
It's been hard to choose another girl
They trip when you mumble, they trip when you sing
But you gave us, a chance to dream
In young thugs, you see a future
You recognize Lil Uzi ain't here to shoot ya
At 21, you knew I was savage
But you said "Common you will never be average"
It's a Cole World, we need Jay
If you can dot com, you can dot K
You rock 2 Chainz, keep your mind free
You see a Malcolm X in a YG
You told me I'm the Mane like Gucci
With a chance to rap and make movies
They gave Mills to the Meek, to inherit the Earth
Before me too, you said "Ladies first"
Things get Rocky, you there A$AP
Rocky or Ferg, you there to swerve
I want you to get the love you deserve
My will made it on a mic' with words
With Noname I was hard MC
Love and Hip-Hop, on some Cardi B
Now you a part of me, creating Tyler style
A future ain't Oddisee
Free spirit, with young will like Jaden
When I see you, you never agin'
Made in America, for the world to see
You're everybody's but you my girl to me
I'm forever yours, to the tic-toc
I'm still talking 'bout you, Hip-Hop

Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are
Who knew? Who knew that we would take it this far?
I, I love you so just be who you are

Uh-uh, uh-uh
Yeah, yeah, we keep, uh
We keep, yeah, uh-uh, we keep
Yeah, keep, uh, we-we keep, uh
We, uh, k-k-keep, uh
We, k-k-keep, uh
We, k-k-keep
I-I k-k-keep it on
K-k-k-keep it on
Yo, let's, let's, let's go up
Yeah, we-we go up, yeah
Let's, let's, let's go up, woah
We-we-we go up, yeah
Let's, let's, let's go up, uh
We-we-we go up, yeah
Let's, let's, let's go up, uh
We-we-we go up, uh

This song HER Love, the delivery is weaker and feels a little forced. The lyrics didn't flow especially opening the piece.

it doesn't stand up to Erykahs Erykah Badu ft. Common - Love Of My Life (An Ode To Hip Hop)

Common Shares His Love For Hip-Hop On 'Her Love' Featuring Daniel Caesar and J Dilla

Common returns with the new single 'Her Love', featuring guests Daniel Caesar and Dwele over an unreleased beat by the late J Dilla.

Common returns with the new single 'Her Love', a sequel to his classic track 'I Used to Love HER', featuring guests Daniel Caesar and Dwele over an unreleased beat by the late J Dilla.

The Chicago MC first premiered the track at 12th-annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia earlier this month with fellow Soulquarian Bilal singing on Caesar's part.

'Her Love' marks the latest chapter in Common's career-long series centred around his love for hip-hop, starting with 'I Used to Love Her' in 1994, then 'Act Too', followed by 'Love Of My Life (An Ode To Hip-Hop)', his duet with Erykah Badu off the Brown Sugar soundtrack in 2002 and most recently, 'The Next Chapter (Still Love HER)' in 2013.

"You gave me a voice in this world / But it's been hard to choose another girl / They trip when you mumble, they trip when you sing / But you gave us a chance to dream," Common raps about the role hip-hop has played in his life.

The Grammy and Academy award-winning rapper also name-checks fellow rappers who represent the future of hip-hop.

"In Young Thug's, you see a future / You recognize Lil Uzi ain't here to shoot ya / At 21, you knew I was Savage / But you said 'Common, you will never be average."

On the track he also gives a shout out to Meek Mill, Cardi B, 2 Chainz and the late rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was killed last March in a shooting in Los Angeles. "Through the struggle, you taught us all to Nipsey Hussle," he raps.

'Her Love' is the latest single off Common's forthcoming album Let Love Have the Last Word, which shares its title with the rapper's memoir he released in May. This follows Common's last studio album, 2016's Black America Again. Along with the single, Common dropped a cinematic visual for the track, directed by filmmaker Savanah Leaf.

"I love music so much. And on Let Love, this recommitting, rebirth and 're love,' if that's a word, just came to fruition," Common shared in a statement. "Music has always been the genesis of my creative life and it feels more than fulfilling, more than wonderful, and a joy that is hard to wrap up, to be giving my whole self to it again."
