Common’s New Song Hits Home With A Strong Message Of Excellence & Empowerment (Audio)
Over the years, Common and Bilal have a strong working chemistry. Since Like Water For Chocolate‘s DJ Premier-produced “The 6th Sense,” the MC and singer have together to make each other shine brightly. “Home” is one of three songs featuring Bilal on Black America Again (November 4).
Within, Common raps about what makes him feel comfortable within music. The verses appear to treat Hip-Hop as a Divine gift, leading the people on a pilgrimage. In the concept of a conversation with a spiritual, Common defines his purpose, as a man, as an example of Black Excellence, and as an twenty-plus year MC. Bilal’s distorted vocals are on the chorus, on a song that metaphorically shows where Common led the music back to, and arguably the bricks that he’s laid for like-minded artists, thinkers, and humanitarians.
