Common's As 'Raw' As Ever
Common just keeps dropping songs from his new album, this time opting for a more gritty feel with his new joint, Raw.
Com is probably one of the few people in hip hop that can flip the switch from inspirational (see: The Believer) to unabashed and this song shows why. Staying true to form, the Chi city native kicks some sweet lyrics over a break beat influenced instrumental. Here's hoping his latest album has more of this duality fans have come accustomed to.
Check out the fresh new track below and also take a look at the behind-the-scenes footage from the music video! Commons' The Dreamer/The Believer is set to drop Dec. 20.
