"Good Looking to Everyone"


          

Thanks & Peace to everyone who went out and supported/purchased a copy of LWFC this week. There has been a lot of great energy & response for the record. I am also pleased that the album is provoking dialogue on LWFC's various lyrical & musical themes. I appreciate all the positive feedback from this album and thank the OKP's for welcoming my musical growth. For those that feel a little disappointed, you don't like it, you don't like it, that don't mean that your hatin'.
I especially want to thank my people in Chicago that have taken the time out of their schedule to come holla at me at my instores this week and called in to WGCI on Monday. Big Up to Mike Love and the Diz @ WGCI for giving me the platform to expose my album and thoughts to my hometown audience....Much Love !

Buy the album: Like Water for Chocolate.

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

I read Assata's autobiography years ago. A very powerful sister. Everyone should peep that book. Thank you, Com, for exposing her to folks who might not have heard her legacy.

ps: Everyone peep out "A Taste of Power", Elaine Brown's autpobiography. She was Chairman of the Black Panther Party for several years. Her story is fascinating. I've been told that the Panthers averaged a 60% female membership...that doesn't get mentioned often...the role of sisters in the struggle is INVALUABLE.

Spread love,

Spirit
www.theamphibians.com

DC folks, watch dead prez on "Spread Love", Monday April 3rd, 10:30pm, Channel 25 District Cablevision or Channel 10 Starpower (re-airs that Friday at 9:30). It's my video show.

Peep Flo Brown the week of April 9th (on Monday and Friday, same time and channel as above)

Peep Jaguar the week of April 16th (same time as above Monday and Friday).

get the idea? the show airs twice a week, mondays and fridays. peep game.

SUPPORT DEAD PREZ, ALBUM IN STORES NOW!!


Peace,

Thank you for saving me from spending my money on some dumb ish. The CD is EXTREMELY NICE, a lot of SOUL. It has to be one of the illest CD's I've bought in a while. Just writing to show my appreciation. Keep making good music. By the way, when you coming to Orlando, Fl. to rock it?

peace peace.

P.S. Although this CD is ill as hell, "Gaining One's Definition" is still my joint.

Yo, Com. If I come out publicly and say your new album sucks, will you put out a dis record aimed specifically at me? Or at least just a verse. That'd be cool.

Thank you Com for putting out such positive music for the masses to enjoy.

Although I miss the disgustingly nice word play that was dropped on your previous albums (especially Resurrection), I respect your growth as an emcee and a human being.

I appreciate all aspects of "Common Sense"....from the sensitive side to the "diss wackass rappers w/o calling out names" side.

Like someone said a while back, the latest album is definitely one that should be bumped while hangin' out with a special lady on a nice afternoon.

Keep putting out the hot joints....I hope the album does really well. I rarely check Billboard Magazine but I will next week to see how the album did.

PS- more wordplay....PLEASE!!!

Thank you for keeping real good hip-hop alive. I heard a few cuts before the album dropped, but I still went out n supported. You can trust I'll be buying one more soon as I get some more dough. Keep the great work up, hip-hop feels you.

I can't remember the last time I heard an album this good. I'd say it's the best album in hip hop since One Day It'll All Make Sense. Thanks for making one of the best albums I've ever heard. You've really outdone yourself this time.

25. "Eff the Okaystore"
In response to Reply # 0


          

For real, i preorder the album from the okaystore, cuz i want a t-shirt and an autographed poster, and i figure might as well support okayplayer directly...so my stuff gets shipped out on monday, but it sure as hell ain't here yet...and i just have to sit back and watch everyone else praise the album, and reply to common's thank you post, and send pictures of them with their receipts to com's email...while i sit here bumping my bootlegged mp3's...i want my damn 'Like Water For Chocolate'...grrrr

So in my case, Com, its still thanks in advance for making this album...

(yes, i know it said may take up to 7 days for shipping...i was fully aware...i thought the benefits outweighed the negatives...but i'm not quite so sure now...)

Thanks for making an album from your heart and soul. I just came out of writing an in class essay focussing on you and your music. I'm pretty damn sure my prof will pick up LWFC now. Your "Like Water For Chocolate" is a classic.

Anyway, thanks for makin' an album that I can play all the way through and enjoy every minute of. And not only enjoy, but inspire. Your lyrics and style of music (especially this time 'round) inspires me to do anything and everything. Ya know, just livin'.

Congrats on all of the success and acclaim your are presently recieving (with loads more to come). Hell of a way to start a new year of your life! Good luck on your future prospects (hope you help out Black Thought with his CD and if ya do, damn, it'll be blazin').

Good luck and peace.

Well Com, you did it bro. You topped yourself...again. I'm so glad Slum Village was represented with such respect and credit. It's good to see the Detroit non-cheesy groups get the deserved credit. And you...you get props, respect, credit, Cool points, pats on the back, and $14.27 of my money. To see my feelings on this soon-to-be masterpiece, feel free to check my post in the "Post all Common album reviews under this thread, please"...Okaystaff person Steve put it up. And I'm sure you can hardly wait to see what I wrote...HA! Alright, keep expanding and PEACE!

man, you know we had to support our hometown hero! Yo, I didn't get much time to talk to you today since you were busy doing your thing at the Crow's Nest instore, but this album is the shit. It was worth the wait...even though I didn't wait. It's WAY better on CD than on them bootleg ass MP3's. And fuck the LWFC vs. One Day vs. Ressurection debates. You made three classics in a row, that's all that needs to be said. You get infinite respect from me and my peoples. Thank you for a beautiful album.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I am feeling this album...I have to turn the music down and pay close attention to catch everything you say

fav joints:
coldblooded- you sound like you are so into this one that maybe you don't even realize anyone is listening anymore
light- damn, if this don't sound like some ish my man would say
6th sense- "my music...can either fight, fuck, or dream to it" love it for that line alone
assata- you and cee-lo's style blend beautifully: simplistic truth/storytelling with passionate soul
pops- the voice of an elder recognizing us and our quest, just uplifting

Thanks Com

I saw you at the State of the Union a few weeks ago but I didn't get a chance to holla at you. My man knew and went to school with your manager.
The album is peace. Inspirational. Thank you for bringing back the one of the dopest female emcees ever, MC Lyte. That joint is hot. Thank you for expanding hip hop also. It's not a hip hop record in terms of what you are used to hearing and what's on the radio. But for me say that it is not a hip hop record is putting limits on the music and the culture. It's a soul record with a brother that's rhyming for real. I guess that's hip hop now and that's peace.

First off thanks for continually taking us to a higher level of musical/intellectual excellence. I know you'll continue to give us some "soulful" shit.
I have to personally thank you for being the one who introduced me to "true" hip-hop. I have been a fan since day one, and will be forever.

lastly.... why didn't they give you a chair at the crow's nest? now i know why you be rhymein' with a back ache.

peace and love

The album is beautiful. The growth expressed on this album, as with the previous ones, is simply amazing. I was a little hesitant to embrace the new production team(see http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/general1/3115.html), but they did an great job (I still would have liked to see No I.D. on the lp somewhere, maybe we could could see him on a remix/b-side/side project). Regardless, the new album is going to be in my CD player (and on my turntables) for a long time. Com, thanks for blessing us with the new album (and the old ones too, especially Can I Borrow A Dollar?, it seems like nobody ever gives it props, but it's a dope album.)

The album just may be too good to get the emotions you want the audience to feel from the songs...shit is crazy man. And Quest...the Femi colaboration is fucking great, especially that interlude before the 2nd track. Beautiful shit. This will definately tide me over til the new Del. Dopeness.

I love the whole album I played it the whole way through from the second the cd player's lid shut. Thank You Common. You've made me pick the mic up again.

It's about time Chicago gave love to it's nicest emcee. People done gone gold and platinum from this city and ain't said shit. Or in the case of Brat on her first album, didn't even want to admit to the world that they were from Chicago. To everybody that got somethin' to say about Comm gettin' too big for Chicago, fuck y'all. Do your thing, Rash. You deserve all this love you been gettin', and then some. We still got love for you at the crib. Don't forget that.

PS- Not that it's a big deal or anything, but, why wasn't there a Walter Payton Rest In Peace shoutout in the album notes? I mean, there was a Jordan shout out, and he don't even live here no more. Just wondering.

Sitting in my damn Gothic in Literature class discussing "Dracula" and my mind has left the building, dreamily depicting what exactly the new Common joint will sound like. DAAMMNNN. 12:15 doesn't come around very fast.

Finally it arrives and I know I can't up and leave to Sam Goody because I promised my lady I'd eat lunch on campus with her and some of her friends. Soooo, I then had to play stupid and irritable for 30 min., while the girls thought I had ants in my pants or some shit. I say my goodbyes (knowing I'm about ready to go crazy!) and hit the road, cruising about 15 miles to the nearest mall. All the while I'm thinking in my broke, college-assed head, "What the hell are you doing? Your order for LWFC is coming in a week in a half from CDNOW and here you are on your way to bust out 16 bones to buy the damn thing!" But silly me, I just let it slide right on over my head, jammed into Sam Goody, snagged THE 1st FRIGGIN COPY! (I swear Idaho heads really lag ...it's either you're down with Cash Money shit, or you AIN'T DOWN!) It was funny too, cause that's the same store that I purchased D's album in just about the same kinda fashion. All ancey and irritable. Don't know what the f*** this stuff does to me, but I'm liking it. I've decided to give my CDNOW copy to my homeboy back in Caldwell, Idaho so we can spread the wealth from East to West here in Idaho. Oh, and Comm, thanks for making this shit correct. Damn, Soulaquarians tore this up! ... I haven't taken it outta my player for four days now ... I just can't seem to pick up another habit! ... once again, thanks and love ......... KelMo

Before, I respected Common as an artist but I never really took the time to study his work let alone buy it but if one of his cuts came on the radio or anything, I'd bounce to it. But after listening to a few samples of "Like Water for Chocolate", I felt driven to buy this one and I love it!!! I love D'Angelo and was very pleased with the collaboration on this piece and well Common, you put it down so hard that I had no choice but to stand up and take notice...especially "A Song for Assata". I was in tears the first time I heard it. So I just want to say thank you for staying true to the art and to the game like the rest of the Okayplayers and please come to Detroit if and when you go on tour.

I can't even describe how much I love the new joint. You always keep it "Com" and that's how I like it.

Instant classic.

It's one of them albums that just leaves me wantin more! When's the next one coming out?

89. "thanks"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Thanks for putting out probably the coolest album I've heard since december... Lyrics are better than ever, and the production is real smooth. Since I bought mine on tues. I listened to it 8 or nine times, almost back-to-back... My reservations to the contrary (I mentioned them in another post), this was simply a hot record.

peace

I'm lovin' the album. We knew it would be a sonic smorgasbord;tasty as a mustard catfish dinner from BJ's. I only ask that you work on cuttin' down on all tha cussin'. As much as I love your album, my mom and pops(both musicians)said you could've done without all tha cussin' as well. Plus my daughter loves you, but I can't play your album for her because of all the profanity.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I would like to thank you for making an insightful album that has me listening to every word. It is a special album that has caused me to turn DOWN the bass and turn UP the treble to make sure I can hear every lyric. (Extremely rare...) Once again, thank you for making this music something enjoyable again.

And thanks for showing a sister love in the Red Dog that night. When you threw up the OKP sign after I did, I was cheesing from ear to ear.

I just bought a ticket to see The Roots somewhere else for the same night- I didnt know that you were coming until half hour ago.....help an okayplayer out!!! I want to see you both- I shouldnt have to decide between you- I feel like the mom in that movie The Good Son...could you come on early that night? There are other okayplayers at my school in the same predicament....we're willing to see you and then bounce to San Bernardino to see The Roots........by the way- LWFC is the joint.....it hasnt left my CD player for a week........one love.
