Sorry. I don't mean to be a hater. I just think the guy is kind of an opportunistic "rap star" type. Very few rappers can act in romantic comedies with Queen Latifah and still maintain cred.

Also... I'm totally down with positive tip. Gang Starr, Tribe, Mos Def, Black Moon, Lootpack... All of these artists have albums in my all time favorites list, but BE took the whole "positive tip" approach to a retardedly bushy-tailed new extreme of pussiness. I remember hearing it for the first time and thinking, is this even rap? Like, it belonged in the "Inspirational" section at the record store.

Tight soul beat production though.

To be fair, I've ignored him for quite some time now. Based on your recommendation, NR, I will give that track a listen.

give that track a listen, but give the album RESURRECTION a listen. Gawd, that was such an important record to junior high me. Haha. That's so classic dood trust me. No matter what you thnk of his latter day career. That's up there for me in the era of Bizarre Ride II Tha Pharcyde, Alkaholik's Coast II Coast, Tribe, Roots, De La's Buhloon Mindstate & Stakes Is High, etc.

I'll admit, I don't outright hate on Common, but I've never particularly been feeling him myself yo. More into the Mos Def side of that equation.. as to Gravitas, its a good record, and I also dig that Talib Kweli is going Killah Priest and self-releasing it, post-2000s independent music is fucking an epic movement allowing artists to entirely obstruficate the mainstream process. Its too bad it hasn't helped for MC Tree, dude almost seems kind of burned about that.. He had critical acclaim but makes no $$$

Don't be hatin on Queen Latifah yo, Kadijah will fuck you up! That, and have you noticed how fine she is lately? That at the thick big-boned Latifah of the 1990s yo,

They had the nerve to sue Common? Those dudes FUCKING SUCK SO FUCKING BAD! I've had the misfortune and displeasure to see this fuckwads open at some local reggae shows, my Lord, its the definition of plastic, God-awful, absolute shit imitation reggae. Fuck them, if anything, Common probably didn't want to be confused with those lamez

Common could do gangsta rap if he wanted. instead he decided to make inspirational records for the people. that's great to me, not corny.

i know i've alredy posted a ton of Common songs.. but here's my fav track on Be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foU_vnO1wKY

"I wonder is the spirits of Bob Marley and Haile Selassie
Watch me as the cops be tryna and pop and lock me
They cocky, plus they mentality is Nazi
The way they treat blacks I wanna snap like paparazzi"

that's not corny. that's not some Macklemore shit.

never thought i'd have to defend Common.. i mean some dudes' music just speaks for itself.

on "The People" (which i posted earlier) he defines hip hop as "rebel Cadillac music".

so yeah.. the music might really be as "positive and inspirational" as it seems, but the spirit is definitely there. SY would be proud.

I'm not hatin' either. I have enjoyed Common a lot in the past, but I quit him some years ago because I was in a totally different kind of mindset, and I just stopped keeping up with him. This was around the time he did some commercial for some short-lived music discovery service with Afrika B.

Anyway, like I said, I'll check out some of this newer shit you guys are referring to. I have an open mind, and I honestly want to see the guy make great music.

Besides... if I hated all inspirational hip hop then I could toss my copy of Graduation in the trash. Which I am NOT going to do. So no hatin' goin' on here.

I've actually been listening to a lot of 2pac lately; an artist I thought I was done with. Specifically RU Still Down? and All Eyez on Me.

Long story short, turns out I am not done. Fascinating story, I know.

I saw that! Are they *the* headliners, or is some british and/or '80s indie band reuniting too?

Oh yeah, the Replacements. Not headlining, but they're gonna be there.

Yes, an Outkast comeback would be very very good indeed.

Coachella reunions are often one-only events.. as to Kast getting back together, meh, I think what they did together stands on its own, sometimes art has to move on. Looking forward to this new Kool Keith and twitter gossip about a new MC Tree mix tape..
