I wish we can post songs on here but I'm pretty sure you all know about that album.
This is one of the few albums that bring a tear to my eye... It's like gospel music to me... so uplifting yet ill


COTDAMMIT ! ! ! !
Just when I thought I was down, this album just picked me the hell up!


Forever Begins

The People
Misunderstood
The Game
I Want You
So Far To Go
Break My Heart

So I'd go ahead and throw this in the top 20 hip hop albums of all time.

Maybe a pointless thread to some but this album has many moods and it lifted my spirits a lot.

I've always thought the album was good, even when it was !%+@ on by the majority of Com fans. Add Southside, Black Maybe (best song on the album after SoFar To Go btw), and A Dream to your list, 10 outa 13 sure as hell aint bad. Especially not in todays climate.

Hug rap or not, I @*+*+ with Be and FF.

You serious fam? I mean there are four Common albums definitively better than it, maybe even as many as six. Expand your horizons, get out there and listen tosome more of the music.

It's not even top 20 out the Chi.

Really? I always kind of viewed FF as Be "light"

Electric Circus is the Com album I've never really been able to get into.

Not top 20.

Way better than most people give credit for. I still bump it.

It does feel like a Be "light" though.
