Anyone who wrote that they like the new album isn't a true Common fan. He's completely sold out on this album, and fact that he got the 2 biggest sell-outs in the industry (Kanye & Pharrell) to help on this album is a dead give-away. This isn't the smooth rhymes and beats that Common is known and loved for, and any die-hard fan of Common will spit on this album.
