14. "RE: *VIDEO: Common - Announcement feat. Pharrell" In response to Reply # 0
I know some hardcore comm fans not feeling this one. I'd count myself as a huge common fan and i gotta say i love this track. Comm's done plenty of tracks trying to save souls and uplift the youth, and let's face it, those kind of tracks are definitely subject to the law of diminishing marginal returns.
i think i like this so much cos i got such love for biggie, and comm weaves the b.i.g rhymes and flows throughout the track, it's a nice ode to biggie and that whole 90s rap scene. kinda like comm is remaking i used to love HER as if he were signed to bad boy or somehting. really captures the era and it's funny as fuck... i mean COMMON SENSE rhyming "yeah i still love H.E.R/ she be needin the dick", comm's got a wicked sense of humour, respect.
