"COMMONS best line"


          

I definitely posted on the common's wackest line thread. Cause, I mean, he's ill, but he can be wack like anyone else. But check it. Let's give some love and point out Com's best line. If we could, as well, give Black Thought some love here too. Cause I hear some peeps say he talks about the same shit in every track beacause he's not "counscious". I think beacause he's not tied to a title like that. he talks about a lot of shit. So give it here. But, I gotta go to bed. I'll post my fav's when I'm not gonna pass out. Peace, asana

28. "outshined by c-lo"
In response to Reply # 1


  

          

i love that song g.o.d. but c-los shit was so much hotter than com's that it makes com's verse seem childish to me.

dont get me wrong, com is one of my favorites, but he says some lines sometimes that i am like "what the hell was he thinking?" in fact i think most of that song c-lo is preaching good vs evil being different than black vs white but i kind of think some of com's lines make white people look like the devil. again, maybe i misunderstood, or maybe it is my own personal theories on life being contradicted, but i just dont feel what he has to say in that song like i am feeling c-lo.

some of commons best verses are introspect for life "buying jeans and gold chains aint gonna make me a father etc etc etc" and that jawn on the soul in the hole soundtrack "worked so hard on my left that its hard to be right".

as far as thought...he has some bangers
"snatch ya from your cloud of cannibus you ignaramuses get laid on your back when i attack your glamourous life style"

just my 2 sense (haha)

i felt the vibe like roy ayers...

trying to find me some light in the rim of darkness, i may not be the darkest brother, but i was always told to act my age not my color, not knowing that my color was that of the original, so i now sing the new negro spiritual....gotta feel that

i seen her on madison, where vice lords be travelin and chevy windows be rattlin.........if u from chi, you cant help but see the west side right b4 ur eyes when he says that shit!

"gettin' EIGHT INSECTIONS, where I wouldn't eat her."

Kyle

"Yo...on The Amen, Corner I stood, lookin at my former hood. Felt the spirit in the wind, knew my friend was gone for good. Threw dirt on the casket, the hurt, I couldn't mask it
Mixin down emotions, struggle I hadn't mastered. I coreograph seven steps to heaven. And hell, waiting to exhale and make the bread leavened. Veteran of a cold war It's Chica-I-go for. What I know or, what's known. So some days I take the bus home, just to touch home. From the crib I spend months gone. Sat by the window with a clutched dome listenin' to shorties cuss long. Young girls with weak minds, but they butt strong. Tried to call, or at least beep the Lord, but didn't have a touch-tone
It's a dog-eat-dog world, you gotta mush on. Some of this land I must own
Outta the city, they want us gone Tearin' down the 'jects creatin plush homes. My circumstance is between Cabrini and Love Jones. Surrounded by hate, yet I love home. Ask my God how he thought travellin the world sound Found it hard to imagine he hadn't been past downtown. It's deep, I heard the city breathe in its sleep. Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep. Deep, I heard my man breathe in his sleep. Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep"--Common

what the hell is an "insection"?

the line goes "getting ate in sections". it's an oral sex reference and a Section 8 play on words.

-----------------------------------------------------
"Observe the ugly mess which most men make of their sex lives-and observe the mess of contradictions which they hold as their moral philosophy. One proceeds from the other. Love is our response to our highest values-and can be nothing else. Let a man corrupt his values and his view of existence, let him profess that love is not self-enjoyment, but self denial, that virtue consists, not of pride, but of pity or pain or weakness or sacrifice, that the noblest love is born, not of admiration, but of charity, not in response to values, but in response to flaws-and he will have cut himself in two. His body will not obey him, it will not respond, it will make him impotent toward the woman he professes to love and draw him to the lowest type of whore he can find. His body will always follow the ultimate logic of his deepest convictions; if he believes that flaws are values, he has damned existence as evil and only the evil will attact him. He has damned himself and he will feel that depravity is all he is worth enjoying. He has equated virtue with pain and he will feel that his body has vicious desires of its own which his mind cannot conquer, that sex is sin, that true love is a pure emotion of spirit. And then he will wonder why lover brings him nothing but boredom, and sex-nothing but shame." -taken from 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand

When Com said that line, he was quoting an ignorant saying that conservative old black folks use and he subtly criticized that line of thinking with his next line "...not knowing that my color, was that of the original".

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I just want to comment on whoever thinks Black Thought isn't concious...where are you? And are you serious? Thought kicks some very insightful words on his tracks (which is why his words are always worth really listening to). He's far from your average emcee. Concious=aware, I always took my man Thought as a concious cat. This is not Jay-Z we're talking about here..you guys have go to be kidding me. What do you guys think?

Neither is Jay.

Concious=aware,
>I always took my man

>This is not Jay-Z we're
>talking about here

And, you are now officially a clown.

Fuck, I even remember an episode of BET Tonight where certain Rashid "Common" Lynn referred to Jay as having some very conscious records.

If you aren't conscious, does that make you "unconscious". You've got to get up pretty early in the morning to be completely unconscious. Ja Rule manages to do it, and I think Nelly does too. But Jay is definitely conscious (Nas is too). Just because you're a "street" emcee or a "commercial" emcee does not mean you cannot also be a "conscious" emcee.

So U say being "street" isnt a commonality or otherwise known as being "conscious"?? Not really. I always have observed others to put "street" and "conscious" in the same subject and I sometimes agreed. I guess it actually all depends.

Anyway as for best quotes....well I always thought they were somewhere in:
"1999" - "some religion change over..angel over my shoulder tells me to remain sober"

or

Nag Champa (Afrodisiac for the World) - "Some say 'Rashid you changed', times are...my verse is depth like that of a baby takin its first step or the old woman that died and the nurse wept....A man does not live on bread alone, what good is a range when it's time to head home."

He is whats UP!

Slowly but surely I pour the lyric into the glass of your mind
My rhyming will be the diamond that will cut through
Lines say but you to do, you don't know what to Got wisdom like a tooth
Incidentally I get buck too Didn't get my jest, so I just had to do it
My mic or your mic, come on no congruent Seen broads in brew to me, be jubilee
On my neck be hot jewelry My old man be schooling me
For sho' I rock good, cats claim this hood and that hood
Black man, your hood is the universe
On this Earth, you were first through the worse My crew could hearse
Used to go up stairs and we went through the purse I don't cures around juniors
Spread live like rumors Niggas loved my tape, but how many were consumers?

The Light: At time when we commited love it was real good/ had to be for me to "ARRIVE" and it still feels good.

He's got a few clever ones

(1-9-9-9: "I talked to the girl to show her that I had respect / less than an hour she was givin me neck".

~The contraditions and messages are on a few levels with this one.)

Truthfully it's hard tryin to practice abstinence
The time we committed love it was real good
Had to be for me to arrive and it still feel good
I know the sex ain't gon' keep you, but as my equal
it's how I must treat you

Women cry, children laugh, men dance
I refuse to lose self and try to win fans over
Weight on my shoulder fluctuates like Oprah's
My refrigerator poetry's magnetic like ultra
You couldn't hang if you was a poster
Posin like a bitch for exposure
It's rumors of gay MC's, just don't come around me wit it
You still rockin hickies, don't let me find out he did it
Got My Eyes on the Tiger, Eyes on the Prize
Eyes on the thighs of Mary J. Blige, imagin on how good the cat must be
Stop eatin meat, lost weight, but I still rap husky
My verse depth is that of a baby's first step
Or the old lady who died and the nurse wept
I flow like cursive writing, invitin you and yours to my openess
Shows allow me to cop Range/range like a vocalist
But man does not live on bread alone
What good is a Range/range when it's time to head home?

last verse from Nag Champa

1. In front of two inch glass from A-rabs I order fries/inspiration when I write I see my Daughter's eyes.

2. My train of thought is that of a hustler, or a nigga with his shirt off/Trying to get his work off to customers/I rap with a chip on my shoulder, squeezing Coronas/See shirts that say "We gotta get over"/That juggy shit is over, the war is on/I only want to be a soldier, I'm holding on,/ to a culture
Focused like Gordon Parks when it's sorta dark/For niggas that's flooded with ice, my thought's the ark

So some days I take the bus home, just to touch home
From the crib I spend months gone
Sat by the window with a clutched dome listenin to shorties cuss long
Young girls with weak minds, but they butt strong
Tried to call, or at least beep the Lord, but didn't have a touch-tone

Asked my guy how travellin' the world sound/
Found it hard to imagine/ He hadn't been past down town/

Growing into my britches
Out, growing the streets
Theres a thin line between war and peace
Whores and jeeps
Ignore emcees like beef
Scribbling freedom on pages
My third eye is like pink eye. Seeming contagious.

OR:

It's like I'm fighting for freedom
Writing for freedom
These record company niggas I dont like when I see him
My ancestors when I'm writing I see them
And talk with them,
Hoping in the promised land I can walk with them

The "third eye" part is a spiritual reference. Depending on who you ask it has different meaning. To me it is mostly a representation of enlightment and how we dont only see with our physical eyes. We as human beings see through our soul and with emotion. Our eyes dont see the whole picture so our "third eye" (mostly depicted as an extra eye in the center of the forehead) acts as the true sight of what goes on around us.

Anyway, Common broke it down with the line.

- My third eye is like pink eye. Seeming contagious.

He was actually sayin that the way he sees things (through his third eye) is catching on. He has either brought some kind of change in the way his fans see the world or he has meet people who have similar views and he spreads them through his music. Thus the "seeming contagious" part at the end of the line.

Pink eye is an eye infection that spreads really, really easily. It's mostly dominant in little children because it's passed on through contact. I didnt have it until I was 18 and one of my younger sibs brought it home from daycare.

-----------------------------------------------------
"Observe the ugly mess which most men make of their sex lives-and observe the mess of contradictions which they hold as their moral philosophy. One proceeds from the other. Love is our response to our highest values-and can be nothing else. Let a man corrupt his values and his view of existence, let him profess that love is not self-enjoyment, but self denial, that virtue consists, not of pride, but of pity or pain or weakness or sacrifice, that the noblest love is born, not of admiration, but of charity, not in response to values, but in response to flaws-and he will have cut himself in two. His body will not obey him, it will not respond, it will make him impotent toward the woman he professes to love and draw him to the lowest type of whore he can find. His body will always follow the ultimate logic of his deepest convictions; if he believes that flaws are values, he has damned existence as evil and only the evil will attact him. He has damned himself and he will feel that depravity is all he is worth enjoying. He has equated virtue with pain and he will feel that his body has vicious desires of its own which his mind cannot conquer, that sex is sin, that true love is a pure emotion of spirit. And then he will wonder why lover brings him nothing but boredom, and sex-nothing but shame." -taken from 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand

Hard to pick the best, but here's a few that I thought to be clever...

"...from a show I had came/hopped off the plane/in my my mind home was pictured/and rest was the frame..."

"...hard to read like graffiti so ???? don't Phase me..." (couldn't remember the whole line)

this is more like a verse, but it's still a fav...

"...I want a job but I ain't lookin'/how come?/I aint tryin' ta degrade myself bein' nobody's Calvin/I'm a couch bum/what makes it bad I had incentive/but that desentegrated to a state that's stagnated/I procrastinated/I can't recall a day without being intoxicated--or blowed/I'm dealin' with a full deck and anyday I could fold/what makes it bad/I wasn't dealt that bad a hand..."

peace

I'm definitely feelin these answers. Can't believe no one has said mines yet. Probably cuz it ain't the best, but i really feel this line, always have since the first time i heard it.

"Granted we'd known each other for sometime, It don't take a whole day to recognize sunshine."

The last half of that line gets me everytime, I guess cuz it can be interperated(sp?) a couple different ways, and related to many different situations.
Let me know if y'all feel me on that one?

In response to Reply # 62


          

As I try to keep my concentration
in this idiotic nation
they said become a doctor, but I don't got the patience
Adjacent, to that situation
I wanna occupation
that I'm into
But when I begin to
Live to my potential
I went to
school for 14 years and my best teacher was experience
I reminisce
and wish I could go back in time to 89
When there was just sunshine!

Or my sig:

Everywhere is broken glass
Nephews smokin squares, nieces smokin grass
Try not to say shoot around my daughter she already know the blast
Catchin the future, don't know who threw the past

It's the, metaphysicals some say the score the revolution therefore
I have come, a calm before the storm
Words are born formed drawn in the brain
Sorn scorn by the pourin' rain
But I can stand it seldom do I feel stranded
Granded I stand with the style that is free
I'm the Mandela ask Nelson brothers love me
I lay it lovely I'm ugly bogus on the mic
I strike like a teacher rappers are line
Stand in line with they signs tryin' to picket
They pick it the way I kick it
Cause with it I'm not wicked cause that's malignant
I use my figments which is vivid
And give it to ya baby like love without no limit
I have no limits no gimmicks no image don't mimick
I'm finished no minutes to be timid
Which shit stick should I spit with?
I'm the nitwit that shit sick I stick with and kick with
The crew I clique with that's who I sit witha and trip with
And sip with the buds are lifted and gold digified
And hit without equipment I've often been depicted
On the solid when it likwit
Yo this is shit is for my man Honda


Tried to pop it musta been a Naz cause the gun jammed

Made me forget to remember that I pimp the dime
Put the pimpin' aside I see Kenya in her eye
Our connection lies in a life before
For us to meet again was devine law
So I can't describe how deep I dug her
Now only in memory can I hug her

(.. from a distance) niggaz tried to appraise me
I'm hard to read like graffiti so it don't phase me

What you should have known from day one
You will on day seven

Nah, just let me put it like this. The illest line Common ever spit was on "Act Too..The Love of My Life". When he said, "When we perform, it's just coffee shop chicks and white dudes". When I first heard that I was like "WHAAAAAT"! I just thought that was the hottest line i've heard, and it has so much truth behind it. Just like Common, he's true to what he lives and spits.

Based on these responses, isn't it painfully obvious how many okayplayers just jumped on the Common bandwagon with LWFC?

With me, I started at LWFC and then went back and found One Day and Resurrection (I worked for THAT one). Still haven't seen the first Common album anywhere down here.

And with Common only going gold, I didn't know that there was a Common bandwagon. (I wish there was. More folks would know of his subtle brilliance. I didn't see a bandwagon in Houston or Baton Rouge...I walked my way to Common's music on my own after hearing him on some other stuff. I love(d) 1 9 9 9 and wanted more of that in my earphones.)

Yea your right, but you have to realize that Common didnt really have as big of a following as he does know. I been a Common fan since Ressurection though, (thank you very much)but I wasnt a Okayplayer until LWFC came out.

Yeah I suppose my post came across as being a bit elitist, but it was just so funny to see how many people chose stuff from LWFC, when some of his most profound lyrics were either from earlier albums or cameos on other artists' songs. Everybody's entitled to their opinion, but suffice to say to really apprecaite Common, you have to get to know Common Sense i.e Can I Borrow A Dollar, Resurrection...

Yo, I've been listening to Common for a long time. I first heard of him on Unsigned Hype I believe when I used to read magazines. Then I copped "Resurrection" fell in love with H.E.R. and checked his earlier material, "Can I borrow A Dollar" and I have the version where it still says "Common Sense" on the cover and not just "Common" as they only have it these days. After listening to all of his albums, my heart still fails to deviate from Resurrection as being my favourite of the 4 albums that I own. I did post one of his best lines from LWFC, more specifically from the light (read above post from "babyswipes") but appropriately titled it "one of many".

I don't think it's fair to say that people are jumpin on bandwagons because they were ignorant of the fact that Common has put out other material. And so what if they are jumpin on bandwagons anyway, it just gives more people exposure to good music.

One of my favourite lines from Common by the way was from a freestyle he did at a show here in Vancouver. It was amazing and I wish I had a copy of it so I could listen to it over and over, but it was a live show and i guess an in the moment type of thing that I will forever remember.

In response to Reply # 72


  

          

Now, I know that my fav Com lines are from The Light, and from LWFC, but to be honest I got into Com back with One Day, and then just very recently picked up Resurrection. But you know what, I love it all, for real. I've deeply embraced Com more now than ever before because of his lyrics and where he represents. I moved from the big Illinois to Missouri, and the only thing Missouri can be proud of in hip hop is Nelly. Now, I don't have a big prob wit Nelly, but if that's all Hip Hop can offer Missouri, I'll move my ass back to Illinois or maybe out somwhere where there's real hip hop.
But uh, on to my fav Common pieces overall. Resurrection and I used to love H.E.R. are the best off Res... I've always loved the line "My 3rd eye's like pinkeye, seeming contagious" from Invocation. Oh uh, i got a halloween party to go to tonite, i'm a pimp wit a couple a ho's. I'm going to be like Com, "looking like a black panther that was trying to pimp" and my often repeated phrase will be "i don't care if it's snowing, i want you out there ho-ing. this a bizness right here, you ain't come too far to see that" I'm a guide them ho's, pimp vision and let them see the light. but its all in fun.

You have to realize that Common has matured alot over the years. Start at the Breaker one nine joint and go up to LWFC. If you listen you can hear him growing up.

first, let me say that i'm not as fluent on my Com quotes as some cats on this site. i like him a lot on most of his appearaces on other's records, but the only Com album i have is LWFC. anyway...my favorite Com quote (and yes, it's from a Tribe song he's featured on):

"before we count our papers, count our blessings"

almost used it as my senior quote. simple but very meaningful.

I stagger in the gathering possessed by a patter-in
That be scatterin
Over the globe will my vocals be travellin
Unravellin my abdomen it's slime that's babblin
Grammatics that are masculine
I grab them in, verbally badgerin broads
I wish that Madelline, was back on Video LP
I went against all odds and got a even steven
Proceed to read and not believin everything I'm readin
But my brain was bleedin, needin feedin, and exercise
I didn't seek the best of buys, it's a lie to textualize
I analyze where I rest my eyes
And chastise the best of guys with punchlines
I'm Nestle when it's Crunch-time
For your mind like one time
If poetry was pussy I'd be sunshine
cause I deliver like the Sun-Times
Confined in once-mines on dumb rhymes I combine
I'm hype like I'm unsigned, my diet I unswine
Eatin beef sometimes I try to cut back on that shit
This rap shit is truly outta control
My style is too developed to be arrested
It's the freestyle, so now it's out on parole
They tried to hold my soul in a holding cell so I would sell
I bonded with a break and had enough to make bail
A misdemeanor fell on his knee for the jury
I asked No for his ID and the judge thought there was two of me
Motion for a recess to retest my fingerprints
They relinquished since, cause I was guilty in a sense

This Is the illest verse from common, but there are many others

That's one of my fav Com verses, the flow is simply unbelievable! But the next verse is ill too, listen:

I ride the rhythm like a Schwinn bike when in dim light
I use insight to enlight devices hit the skin tight
Words of wisdom wail from my windpipe
Imaginations in flight
I send light, like Ben's kite I've been bright
Get open like on gym nights
And in fights I send rights
Don't hook with skins my friends like
I spend nights up in dykes
In spite I've been indicted as a freak of all trades
I got it made
I bathe in basslines, rinse in riffs, dry in drums
Come from a tribe of bums
Hooked on negro and mums
Had to halt with the, malt liquor
Cause off the malt liquor I fought niggaz
Now my speech is lost quicker
Cruisin Southside streets with no heat and no sticker
U Ak got my back and we don't get no thicker
U Ak got my back and we don't get no thicker
U Ak got my back and we don't now check it
I'm a hoe but not a hoe nigga, ain't scared of no nigga
But it's my turn to go I gotta go
And I'm gone with the storm

If you've heard AL's Lyrics from Lyricists Lounge vol. 1, they say "I use Common Sense Ressurection" which is pretty obvious when you listen to it (heh).. That song is one of my favorites too but it can't compare to who they try to copy. It's a tribute to lyrics thou so no hard feelings

Btw, this post gave me two new quotes in my sig (any other suggestions?)! Look below..

-----------------

"An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind" -Ghandi
"It don't take a whole day to recognize sunshine" -Common <<< NEW
"I went to school for 14 years and my best teacher was experience" -Common <<< NEW

I REMEMBER HIM! -BKyle
A nice OKP memory...

A native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt. He said I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.

The grandson asked him, Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?

The grandfather answered: The one I feed.

Too many. What sticks out?
:
"Took a picture of the truth and tried to develop it
Had proof, it was only recognized by the intelligent
Took the negative and positive, cuz niggas got to live
Said I got to get more than I'm given
Cuz truth'll never be heard in religion
After searchin the world, on the inside what was hidden
It was the truth"

:
"In my formitive by my peers I was influenced
til the instruments of time killed the congruence
I peeped the blueprints on how to make true sense
of MC's which are a nuisance I know just what to do since
I'm on another lev
brothers is fakin' jacks and think they ready for the rev
but they got a lot to learn, to make their thoughts long term
'cause their shortcuts made a wrong turn
probably, timelessly I construct the fear-some
to rip your eardrum for many years to come
professional style thinkin' rational to move wise
so hard, it's a wonder y'all alive"

Lauryn had a similar line/photo analogy on her debut album. "Take from the negative and form a positive picture", I believe it went. Yeah, great minds think alike (or at least inspire one another).

"pro black like Craig Hodges, with my Dashiki in the cleaners"

I don't know if that's the exact line, I havn't peeped it in a few weeks, but any refrence to my man Craig Hodges is already ground for a classic line. Maybe that's why I still hold Common as my #1 MC, even as some of his newer joints don't have the same appeal they used to.

Hmmm...I can't really say his BEST line because that would be hard as hell. But this past week I been listening to One Day a lot, and that CD had some pretty tight ones. Also, keep in mind that "Hungry" is probably in my top three favorites. How could it not be with lines like this??
"shit is so banging niggas say its gang-related"
or
"skip ladies this is rip a muthafucka night"
"you need to do more deleting and less saving"

Also
"Inhale imagination and breathe wonder"
"its gonna be some drama you try and sit Com down, this ain't comedy"
"I came through the corra-dor with the aura, Raw chicago mora, scope the horror"
"If you believe in heaven, why is the choice hell?"
"The cops, ya'llknow what they be one, a nigga's life is like a field that they play on"

And I could go on forever, but these are ones I can think of now.

Peace

152. "Common Forshadowing"
In response to Reply # 150


  

          

"Don't watch the Bulls as much, got too many white boys/
A million black men walking in 1 direction, cream of the crops/
Resurrection"

Resurection Remix, circa '94. Still True today, but I'm feeling Brad Miller.

If you don't have that extended H.E.R single from back in the day, pick it up. Soul By The Pound Remix + 2 vesion of H.E.R & The resurection remix, all classics.

157. "Respirations...."
In response to Reply # 152


          

Asked my God how he thought traveling the world sound/
found it hard to imaging he hadn't been past downtown

Out of all of brotha com's lines that line hit home. It made me think how most of us don't get the chance to brorden our worldly perceptions.


I bet on brothas with nothing to live for/ to give more to the struggle/ they already at war

kats quickly losing hope/ thinking the only way of coming up is selling dope/
why must we hang our folks with they modern day rope

Look how far el dordos and wine bottles drug us/ least god and the sun love us

...I've seen weight turn into cadillacs with 'dopeman' plates...

...sometimes i think about moving to a warmer place/
then the lake and skyline, give a warm embrace...

...harmonizing through beepers and reefer/
the city's got my people in a sleeper/
talk's gettin' cheaper...

& so so so so many more
