Talking Shit

Classic Common Sense

Talk about a throwback! Here's some old school Common from 1994 off of his Resurrection album. He was still going by Common Sense at the time and still living on the Southside of Chicago...not doing Gap ads, not making movies, not wearing cardigans, and definitely keeping his rhymes simple and raw. I'm not saying I prefer one style over the other, but this is the Common that most hip-hop heads fell in love with waaaayyy back in the day. Enjoy.
