If there ever was a time when hip-hop could use a savior (sit down Jay,) now is that time. Please enter, Common. The heralded Windy City MC readies his return to the game with the new LP, Finding Forever. Executive produced by Kanye West, Common kicks off the impending-classic with the single The People, featuring singer Dwele. The mood of the production is laid back and has a nostalgic old school feel, all courtesy of West. Common says he “does it for the people,” and after one listen, the people couldn’t be any happier.
