While Common has put in more work than the average emcee can shake a stick at, you have to wonder what goes through that head of his (nh) prior to each album release. Take this album cover for instance (swacked from NahRight) – a clear sign that Lonnie is once again on the verge of losing his gattdamn mind. When the first thing that comes to your mind when seeing this future weedplate cover is “Space Faggotry 7: Legend of the Mystical Homo”, then it’s clear that someone’s headed back into crochet territory (either that or he’s gettin’ some of that Badu pussy again – all natural of course).
Don’t get me wrong….I listen to some of his music (I copped “Be”) and I was impressed, but I can only “be” in the mood for songs about rainbows, bunnies, and lollipops for a short time before I begin to wonder if the ninja had relations with Kanye and John Mayer the night they recorded “Go“. Granted he doesn’t go as far as wearing skirts in his videos, but at least Andrea can spit circles around your favorite emcee. What do ya’ll think?
