Common delivers love with his new album

Chicago's veteran rapper Common has released his 12th studio album called Let Love on August 30th, 2019 under the labels Loma Vista Recordings and Concord Records. The former GOOD Music rapper has accomplished a lot in his hip-hop career such as opening up for N.W.A. and Big Daddy Kane to releasing his debut album Can I Borrow a Dollar in 1992. He survived and went bar for bar against west coast legend Ice Cube when he and Westside Connection (Mack 10, WC and Ice Cube) decided to go at Common for his song I Used to Love H.E.R. from his second album Ressurection, and for those who know Common, he is a smooth and calm dude but he did not back down from Cube with the retaliation song The Bitch in Yoo in 1996. Around 1999, he went and teamed up with soul and alternative hip-hop artists such as Q-Tip, J. Dilla, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Mos Def and more to create The Soulquerians, and after his last album with label MCA Records, Common joined Kanye West's GOOD Music label in 2004. He left GOOD Music in 2011 and went on to do his own personal work such as appearing in numerous movies, writing books and poems, being a strong activist and philanthropist, as well being a pescatarian. Common's resume not only as a rapper but as a whole person, is really enormous with an academy award, an African-American Film award, 4 BET Awards, 3 Grammy awards and so much more. His new album Let Love features guests such as Swizz Beatz, Daniel Caesar, BJ The Chicago Kid, Jill Scott and more. After I was done listening to the 11 songs album, it was like I saw a more loving Common than before, and he was always a loving brother, so let's go over this album track by track.----------------------------------------------
