Inspirational Rapper Common drops newest album entitled “Black America Again" - Album Review
Inspirational and conscious rapper Common dropped his newest album entitled “Black America Again” today and social media is lauding the rapper for his work. The album exudes and celebrates African American culture, awareness, spiritual confidence and positivity, while focusing on vibrant melodies, musicality and moving instrumentals.
The first song that vehemently caught our eye on the album is called “Let it Rain” ft. John Legend. The rhythm and musical flow throughout the song is hypnotizing, but the lyrics are what catapult the track into the minds of youth and adults. The lyrics state: “I was always told that in the pain, there’s a blessing. Mistakes that I made, they mirrored the lessons. Dear Lord, is this what I’m destined for? If so, than what am I stressing for?”
None of the tracks on the album disappoint, but you can really witness vintage Common surfacing in the lyrics and melodic harmonies of the song “Pyramids.” He states:
“Aerial nights blew my mind out of stereotypes
For ethereal heights, I write like Pritchard
Invisible man, pictured below with the hieroglyphicable
Prolifical flow, on the walls where the mystics of Kemet would go
Son of the sit-ins, you know who I stand with
Dude said I was a hero, I ain't nothing but a sandwich
A gluten-free one at that, close my eyes see my raps
My bio is feedback from what we need rap
On some Marshawn Lynch, let me run it back
And come with that new black spiritual
Every rap's a miracle, condition now critical
Game lack lyrical, we need black generals”
Overall, the album delivers its true goal: to inspire. We highly recommend individuals of all ages, whether you are a rap fan or not, to check out Common’s inspirational tales of “Black America Again.”
Great review sis!! I'm going to purchase the album today.
