25752, Common and The Source....

Well, I didn't expect anything different, it seems The Source has set 4 mics as the limit to judge an innovative piece of work. I haven't listened to the album enough yet to give it a fair judgment but when Rashid's work is measured next to other questionable releases given near classic status, the rating given by hip-hop's quote-on-quote "official" magazine seems blasphemous. Oh well, leave the reviews to the truly worthy critics, the consumers with open minds and a will to expand.
