    Default Common - Be




    1. Be
    2. The Corner feat. The Last Poets
    3. Go!
    4. Faithful
    5. Testify
    6. Love Is
    7. Chi-City
    8. The Food (Live)
    9. Real People
    10. They Say feat. Kanye West & John Legend
    11. It's Your World (Part 1 & 2)




    Nice album, no weak tracks, but to me it doesn't get a lot of plays as an album. It just doesn't have the cross from really good into brilliant. Love the beats but I think Common is a pretty over rated MC, he sometimes sounds really average.

    Be, The Corner and Real People are the biggest highlights to me, overall about 7.5/10

    i don't like common, his delivery/flow is boring, lyircal content is immature, concepts undeveloped and unoriginal, he's just a weak MC not one track did he lyrically impress me at all. give that shit a 6, cause kanye comes NICE on the boards, but hot production can only take you so far...

    Nice on par with his earlier work. A blank cd was better than Electric Circus

    10. I actually think this album is a cold cut classic, definitely by modern standards... and definitely a classic all-round for me. ONE

    Why hate on Common? He's got some of the best lyrics out there. I used to Love her anyone? Anyway, this is a real nice album to me.

    Common? A weak MC? I'm gonna guess the only album you've heard from him was "Be", cause Com is definitely a top 10 lyricist of all time.

    As for "Be"....I give it an 8...Its not the classic it was hyped up to be. Its not that any of the tracks are bad, but nothing is excelent, and Only Chi City truly brings Com back to his ridiculous word-play days. Its a solid album, but just because its better than the Ying Yang Twins album or the Mike Jones cd, doesnt make it a "Modern day classic"

    I don't know how y'all measure your favorite emcees, but how the fuck can Common be a "weak lyricists"? This album is the best album of the year so far. All tracks blew my mind. I just love it.

    I honestly don't like Kanye's beats that much. I'd much rather prefer Hi-Tek or even NO I.D.

    Common was the one who actually got me into Hip Hop, and away from Rap. I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Ressurection, so that makes him one of the biggest influences in my life, and I haven't even met him. Much love goes out to Com, one of the great emcees.

    WHAT'S GOING ON?

    I wouldn't call Common a weak MC. I think he's average, but not weak. I don't know how you can say his lyrical content is immature. You're right about his flow tho... boring.
