Classic album. The Kanye & Dilla production is simple beautiful, and I love Common's lyrics. 13 years on & this thing still sounds fresh as hell

Common has come back from the dark to revive true hip hop with this instant classic, Be. Common has enlisted the great production skills of fellow Chicago producer, Kanye West and J Dilla as well. Although only 11 tracks on the album, the production from Kanye West and J Dilla is flawless. Common comes with great lyricism that works hand in hand with the flawless production. Common tells stories of struggles in everyday life, and his passion to bring real hip hop into perspective. He has got back on the right track and is ever more focused to revive the real hip hop.

One on the albums that got me back into Common and hip hop in general. This is the best hip hop album of 2005 and one of Common's best. I really was into the old Common stuff such as Like Water For Chocolate, but when Electric Circus was released, I was beginning to think Common was headed in the direction that other artists like the Black Eyed Peas were heading. After hearing Be, I realized that he was back on the right track. Curious to see his direction in the future.

With fellow Chi-Towner Kanye West behind the boards, Common
returns with his sixth and perhaps best effort to date, Be.
Like a train ride through the ‘hood, the concise, 11-track
opus steamrolls through the images, stories, and emotions of urban folks getting by any way they know how. Overflowing with passion, honesty, and optimism, Be gets to the root of human experience-all the while staying beautifully soulful and funky.
