naw son u buggin.  truthfully speaking it's rare to be a positive hip hop mc and put out an album in such nature and it be considered classic.  there's only few that have done that and "be" just wasn't 1 of them; it's cool if it's ur personal classic tho.

I agree with the topic creator

BE is amazing, and the intro is one of the best intros to a rap album ever

be is a classic and anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves.


sorry radiopoop, your a cool kid but stick to your waka flockas and your juice mans because its obvious at this point in your life you just cant relate to this kind of sincerity in hip hop.


this is grown man rap...

Def a great album, one of the best of the decade. Really cohesive, great raps, beats, etc.

"grown man rap", yeah i've heard that b4.  look, im sorry yall love it but it don't mean i do.  "be" isn't anywhere close to tha classics that's already certified and off no bullshit i actually had "be" on bootleg and I just couldn't get into tha entire thing like that, a couple good tracks but 4 tha most part it was standard.

like i said this is grown man rap...your still into popping bottles of liqours you cant pronounce and smoking "loud packs" with your pelle grant and your parents money, this shit is for your working stiff that wants to hear about shit he can relate to. this isnt nothing for you to "stunt" to, this isnt anything you can get your "dougie" on with so you cant feel it.

grown man rap...your a young dude. once youve been through some shit soulful music like this may be more appealing.

"once i've been thru some shit..."  


wow son i cant even believe u would disrespect me like that.  if i want to hear some grown man rap i'll put on some Bishop Lamont or better yet I'll read something.  and it's been clear and proven that tha only thing in my playlist isn't "trap hop" or club music so plz fall tha fuck back on assuming what I like and don't like.  I don't like Common, I think he's overrated and the only reason I think he's been so successful is becuz there's been nobody else in that lane of rap that's ever been at that level rapping about what he's been rappin' about.  I like some of Common's music (i really do) but dude isn't MLK or Malcolm, he's just anotha nigga preachin' 2 tha choir about Positive shit (honestly he should just stick to acting).  "The Ressurrection" wasn't even all that great and "Like Water For Chocolate" was so-so and u REALLY have to be in that mood to listen to anything else by him, that "universal" track was my shit tho.  


i'm sorry that i happen to like music that came out yesterday and you despise it, but IT IS possible for a human being to like both - let alone all variations of it (*i'm sorry u weren't informed of that*).  Kanye did his thing but Kanye's made a million better other instrumentals and songs.  You guys sound like this other old ass nigga named "Arthur" that i used to work with, he was a big Common fan and he pretty much said tha same thing about it being "grown man music" but then I'm like just becuz dude is calm and talks about certain issues doesn't automatically make it great just becuz that's the type of shit he's on (same goes 4 u Talib/Madlib fans too).  and honestly, i can't see myself 10/20/30 years down tha line bumpin' Common's albums, it just isn't that interesting to me and it gets stale and u have to be stuck in that mood 2 really get down with it like that, there's other artist who do what he does better that talk about more shit and rap about partying too.  


And that's whut's wrong with u guys, y'all have no rhythm and ur boring and ur lame (u sit on ur asses and i bet your conversations with chicks are very Dry), I wouldn't doubt when you go out you're the guy sitting by himself at tha bar or against the wall watching everybody talkin about "i'm too grown to dance" or some shit like that.  So like I said if that's your thing then fine, i'm not hatin lol, but to say it's a classic becuz it's Common rappin' about shit really only Common raps about is classic is a little bit fanboyish.  All I'm sayin' is if it were really all that good (just Common's music in general) he would have a lot more songs that stick with society instead of "i used to love her", "the people", "the light", and "the bitch in yoo" and u can't blame labels and the media 4 that (u HAVE TO hold the people accountable for something like that and obviously the people aren't talkin that much otherwise Common would be in a bigger spotlight than he is now, it's natural tha way it works out 4 Celebrities, u can only spend so much money investing in urself to make urself only so big, the people carry u, not tha Executives).  I hope dude keeps doin his thing tho, I like whut he stands for and how he carries himself, but his body of work when it comes to his music just isn't there like that.

that's perfectly fine but the next time someone says something about Common or the "Be" album just don't get all emotional if someone doesn't like it.  



but if u want me to sum it up [not completely] then I'll say that we live in a moraless society with little standards and a society that doesn't give a fuck about preaching unless you're getting paid to listen.  everybody's going their own direction and artist like Common go their own way and only so many people follow them.  the rest of the world already understands it but unless something changes drastically it'll always go in 1 ear and out the other.

Fuck all the bullshit about grown man music this is just good music.
5/5 classic indeed.

I'll read something.
Stop right there, you know damn well you don't read.

I would also like to be explained how Bishop Lamont makes grown man music.

you shouldnt need to type a screen play to get your point across fam...

you represent only a part of the rap demographic...the screen play writing fake track listing coogi wearing trendy dance step learning fraction of the rap listers and that album almost went plat so that disproves your whole post. in years to come that album will  be looked at as a classic and if he wouldnt have dropped the same year as kanye he would have had the album of that year.

if you wanna talk about passive disposable rap look no further then your own play list you really think in years to come ppl will be talking about waka? i seriously doubt it. with that said i like wakas album. its refreshing to hear music that so void of commercial material. which i ronically is one of the same reasons i love commons be.

The "screenplay" wasn't even all about Common or "Be" so let's dead that right there (it was more or so an informative message as to why tha genre of hip hop isn't all that popular with the rest of society).  And if I represent only a small demographic (there u go assuming whut I like and listen to again) then it's safe to say that it isn't a Small part it's more like the Majority.  I don't know whut's got u all hot in tha pants this morning but u really need 2 calm tha fuck down.  And if "Be" was gonna be album of the year clearly it would've had a bigger social impact instead of being praised by the SMALL DEMOGRAPHIC of people it was praised by and more people (regardless of their preference of Hip Hop) would be more accepting of that album and it would still be ringing bells to this day, instead it's just held up high by backpack hip hop fans.  Say whut u want about Waka Flocka Flame but dude is doin way bigger things than u r and clearly has a lot more swagg than u have so u kan miss me with that bullshit right there.




And Bishop Lamont does make grown man music, it's just that every song he does doesn't have that "i have morals becuz I'm too serious" vibe to it.  It's all preference really, but as far as the subject at hand goes, "Be" is not a classic, if it wuz like I said it would've been integrated in society a lot more than it iz.  Like i've said b4, i know this is the world wide web but everybody isn't on the computer all tha time (it just appears that way becuz we live our lives attached to our computers).  



If all u c is Teenagers and 20-something year olds when u think about Hip Hop then you really need someone to open that azzhole up and fill it with somethin nasty.  I like Common, I like to hear positive messages, I don't always dance to songs, I don't like every jingle that comes out but I do love Good music and just becuz it's good to a particular demographic of fans doesn't mean it's the best.  Everybody liked "the chronic" in it's day, it's official that "Ready To Die" is a Hip Hop classic, it's official that "Doggystyle" is one of MUSIC's greatest records, but it's not certified that "Be" is any of that.  Don't get mad at the messenger.

Common is dope and has shown he can switch it up but he always get hates when he wants to try something different.  I'm a fan of his music and tracks like G.O.D (Gaining One's Definition) hit home hard just like Bishop lamont's track like Everyday or Can't Figure It Out.  Both are dope artist.

yeah i think a lot of folks on here seem to think that a positive message with morals = grown man music and everything else = not

lemme tell you guys somethin, about a year ago 9th wonder used the phrase "grown man music" and you know what album he was describing? DEEPER THAN RAP

now if someone on here said that folks would tear us to pieces, aint that right? but it was 9th... so what do you folks make of that?

I don't think Common gets "hated on", I just think that people don't really care.  Common is kinda 1 of those artist u can't get mad at unless dude starts poppin up with "i shot a nigga in tha face with ak47 becuz I'm hot" raps or "all bitches ain't shit one less bitch" music.  Common's a soul brotha, it's kinda hard 2 hate him or dislike anything he does/puts out.

I disagree.  In my time I've seen people hate on him for both Universal Mind Control & Electric Circus.
