LIFE/MUSIC: Common Listening Party

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Shanis, Common, Jordan
With our internet at the office all types of F***** up, I had time to sneak into Common's Listening Session with Centric for his new album The Dreamer/The Believer.  We got a chance to listen to 5-6 of his tracks and even saw some of the rough cut of his video for "Blue Sky."  From what I heard the album had a refreshingly authentic 90's Hip-Hop sound which makes me all the more excited to listen to the rest of the album. Common, himself, was a pleasure to meet in person. He's a real genuine down-to-earth artist who believes in the inspiring messages that he puts into his music. While he was playing his music for us, he sang/rapped along which made it even the more enjoyable. 

Like my co-worker Jessica said in her tweet , "The Dreamer" is bound to be an instant classic. I'm sure his album will have many successful singles. Glad to know there's still bigger artists out there who haven't lost their initial motivations for their music. Definitely check out the audio for "Blue Sky" below and look for the music video which should be dropping soon - definitely inspirational.
