Man it's hard to go gold.I thought Common had atleast broken the 200,000 barrier.Well,I just hope "The light" gives him a boost to raise his sales a little but I guess it's better than his last album so It's good news.

its hard to go gold but he's almost there. the plaques are are based on the number shipped to stores and not actual sales...i think. label guy?

What can we do, as average, everyday folx to help promote LWFC? Is it really just word of mouth?

That is one of my favorite songs on Com's CD -- Bilal's voice is wonderful, the music is so funky -- this is one song where I can't wait for that bridge..."There are times, when you need someone......" Whew. Com, forgive me, the words in your "letter" to your girl/significant other are deep as well - I give props where props are due.

I can't wait for the video - wish I were in it....

Congrats on a phat cd, Brother!!

Much Respect

someone kicked me and explained that it wasn't bilal on "the light", but a sample...forgot the singer's name...and i left my common CD cover at my school (where no one is into hip-hop enough to steal it...hahha).

if you guys saw it steadily falling down the billboard chart, why would you think com was going gold? now, in the 4th quarter records can fall and still be gaining in sales (because that just means the albums above them are selling more, faster, of course, on the billboard chart this "falling rise" would be signified by a shaded number). but in may, if your album is falling, that means you're falling falling (the opposite of bout it bout it, i suppose...sorry, bad humor).

let's hope "the light" warms some radio programmers' hearts, eh?

I think this album will be a strong catalog seller anyway (i.e. it will continue to sell long after MCA ceases actively promoting it).

Spread love,

GO SEE "LOVE AND BASKETBALL"!!!! In theaters now. What a great film. Check out "Go" on video, too.
