Common - Universal Mind Control

Universal Mind Control U.M.C. www.newhiphoprbrapmusic.blogspot.com FULL HQ SONG - Common Ft. Pharrell mohit dhawan delhi india

Oh man Common what is going on. I'm almost as disappointed in this track as I am in The Cool Kids Much Hyped Album The Bake Sale. This reminds me of something off of Electric Circus which was far from Commons usual soulful sound. Pharrell's beat is not the problem to me, in fact I really like Pharrell's beat on this track. Pharrell can do much better but the real issue is that the beat is just not Common. The beat is way to fast for him and lacks a lot of the rhythmic soul that gives Common such panache. Common cant flow over this beat, he should have stuck to a nice Kanye beat and called it a day. Honestly Common, what happened to the Resurrection days?

This doesn't sound like Common at all. Yes, the beat is fire but I agree it doesn't match Common at all. Maybe his next single will do the trick?

You might wanna take a look at that. His whole cd is gonna be like this.

this was not made to be fitting for common. this was made to be a hit single.
