Details

[Edit]

After a three-year break from releases following 2002's Electric Circus, conscious rapper Common returned with a heightened profile - thanks in part to an anti-AIDS public-service TV ad - and the album Be. Scaled back from the sprawl of Circus, the album has the intimate feel that best serves its creator. At the same time, it hardly lacks for street wisdom and club credibility. "Go!" is at once a laid-back head-nodder and a lustful paean to sex, while "Chi-City" both challenges the prevailing hip-hop culture and boastfully nominates Common as its savior. Be ends with a pensive nod to Gil Scott-Heron, borrowing his album title "It's Your World" for a reminiscence of earlier days and a hopeful promise for the future.
