Editorial Reviews

Enhanced 2007 collection from the Rap superstar. Chicago-born Common was a highly influential figure in Rap's underground during the '90s. Like De La Soul, Jurassic 5, and The Roots, his refusal to conform to the commercial Gangsta Rap of the time earned him underground success. He gained a wide and fiercely devoted cult following among aficionados of socially conscious Alternative Rap, not to mention the respect of his peers. This summer's #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, Finding Forever, has solidified Common's position as a prominent Hip Hop artist. From the underground rapper named Common Sense, to the thoughtful and mature artist Common, he was destined to make his mark all along. Features 15 tracks including 'Take It EZ', 'High Expectations' and enhanced material. Legacy.

Format: Audio CD
This is Common before he started getting really popular. That's why all his newer tracks are not included. I mean seriously, what's the CD title? It's "Thisisme Then" as in before. Think about it. He wants his newer, possibly younger fans who are just recently starting to grace their ears with his beautiful music to hear his classics. To hear what he sounded like RAW before he was gradually poured into the mainstream. This is good for the newer Common fans, but this does NOT at all make up for all his older albums. Buy this and then decide if you want to buy them all seperate. Ressurection and LW4C are definite must-buys. The only big complaint I have for this album, is that is doesn't include "Chapter 13 (Rich Man Vs. Poor Man)" Damn, what a good track. Theres also a handful of other Ressurection songs that could definitely be on here. On the whole like I said, it's good for the newer less experienced Common fan.

First of all, for starters, this is Common (Sense) when he was on Relativity Records, which showcases hits from his first three albums: Can I Borrow a Dollar?, Resurrection, and One Day It'll All Make Sense before he switched labels. Most of these songs here were his hit singles back in the early-mid 90's (as far as I'm aware of). Songs like "Take It EZ" and "Heidi Hoe" showed the young female chasing B-Boy of him. With "I Used To Love H.E.R.", "Thisisme", Gaining One's Definition", and "All Night Long" showed the introspective side of him (something people are used to him hearing). The album closes off with "High Expectations" which appeared on the Soul In The Hole: Original Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture Sountrack.

Like everyone who runs into these greatest hits albums, we have our own personal prefrence of what should be on the album. Tracks like "The ***** In Yoo" (fellow diss to Ice Cube), "Soul By The Pound (Remix)" and a few b-sides could have made their way on to this album. And I personally don't see why "Stolen Moments III" (which is part of a story) is on here, as it seems out of place. The overall album is worth owning. Especially for those people who don't listen to rap/hip hop except for Common and other related artists should check this out to see how much he has grown from 1992. Most heads already have all of his albums, and shouldn't have to worry about this. Peace!

You can't go wrong with one of the best lyricists of all time. It takes me back to when he first started making noise in the early 90's. This album is probably going to have a second part to it, like the Roots did with their Greatest hits, to this point, album. I always felt Common should come out with something like this because he brought out some hits way before the mainstream actually caught up to him. This is definitely a must have for Hip-Hop fans. Unless you already have every one of the earlier CDs already... which would also be safe buys if you want more.

Not often can we associate the word smooth to Rap or Hip Hop, but here's an artist who can intertwine the two with no problem!
Common's the man when it comes to Intelegent inner city Hip Hop, keeping his lyrics real and in check (NOT DISGUSTING US WITH VULGAR DEGRADING RYMES) relating to women, or the Culture in general.
A lot of us ol' skoolers can appreciate his message, and how as he's aged his artistry is even more appealing and respected universally.
