common wrote lyrics for "big will" on "willenium" just as nasir jones did on "big willie style." everybody knows that fake-ass, hot air blowin' fool can't write his own lyrics. will, that is...

y'all love dissing will. ok i have willenium. the credits for some songs credit l.lynn as a writer. we all know who that is. instead of y'all thanking will for recognizing comm's talent and breaking him off with a lil cheese, y'all dissing him. more people from a larger audience heard comm and jill on the www soundtrack, i would wager. will in turn went back and got some old school heads to do his album as well. what is it about him that is not hip hop?<P>now as far as will writing, everybody knows that the "rap" stars of yesterday, simply can't hang with the writing styles of today, point blank. name me 5 old school stars still enjoying the same sucess as they were enjoying in their prime. will wanted his lyrics on point is he got one of the best to make sure his shit was hot.<P>not only that but comm and jill's song was produced by dj jazzy jeff's touch of jazz<BR>trust me, prince knows that he ain't the tightest with the lyrics anymore so he's gonna grab some help. There is a reason will is still the man, ain't it's not only cause of his movies. it's not just cause whites are buying his shit. it's a combo of a lot of things. i can name 3-4 hip hop artists that are actors or that were loved by white mainstream america that ain't on top. <P>just be thankful that will is not trying to emabrrass us while he's in the spotlight by keeping his home training. he's not trying to be overly negative but positve. there is a time and place for everything, just like there are different types of artists. there is a place for will, and comm, etc.. what you want? everybody sounding the same? we already have 25 mobb deeps, 18 2-pacs, and 3 biggie and suge knight wannabees. lol<P>all y'all dissing him, have you even heard the last album?<P>do i need to list the many will smith/okp connections again? what am i up to now? number 10?<P><BR>rappers i crush, kill, and destroy like STRESS.<BR>- common (sense)<P>D Angelo says thank you and 180 of us respond.<BR>Common Says whats up and over 60 of us respond.<BR>People in seattle get pissed and over 100 of us respond.<BR>Quest just says anything and they damn near have to shut the boards down<BR> -okayplayer LmaniV<P><BR>preview my new video before it hits the stores<BR><a href="http://hometown.aol.com//layzboi/mywebpage.html" target="_blank">http://hometown.aol.com//layzboi/mywebpage.html<;/a><P><BR>at times my going forward seems like retreat<BR>-common (sense)

I don't really have a problem with Will in general. I don't particularly like his music (Wild Wild West -- come on!?), I haven't listened to the new album, and I probably won't. I only made my comments because I saw the 'Freakin' It' video on MTV and took exception to the way he was bigging himself up and criticising other rappers, when most of us know that he uses ghostwriters.<BR>That's all.
