I know you missed it earlier. I’m sorry.

“I wish I could give you this feelin’.”

Kanye’s yearning hook and the Last Poets’ spoken-word histories are the window dressing; the burbling, drum machine-on-repeat beat with occasional choral bits is the backdrop.

And Common, one of the finest narrative MCs ever, spits three great, presumably autobiographical verses; the first two are remarkable in that nearly every bar rhymes (or is at least a slant rhyme). A slept-on classic with a damn good video, directed by Mr. West, to go with it.

Tomorrow’s a long timely video, and it’s not going to have (any) salty language; be aware.

The video was disabled from embedding.

Great song though. Two consecutive solid days; actually your whole debut has been excellent. I was skeptical at first because I don’t know much about hip-hop or rap, but I’ve liked everything so far. Well done Rockabye.

Fixed the video. Excellence is what I strive for.

That, and broadening this part of the general public’s musical taste.

May I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that actually understands what they are discussing on the net.
You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of your
story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you certainly have the gift.

Admiring the time and energy you put into your site and detailed information you provide.

It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the
same unwanted rehashed material. Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

In case you as player spend money gambling on online casino sites to the point where you spend even money that was not initially meant for the game
but for other expenses, you can be considered as being at a high
risk of addiction. If you always quit winners you will always have life left to fight another day and considerably
more money with which to do so. But more significantly, casino gambling has not proved
the panacea to any place where it was supposed to reduce tax burden:
certainly not New Jersey – Atlantic City was supposed to pay for education and seniors, and
yet they are still slashing teachers and bitching about high property taxes; not Pennsylvania (go
talk to the blighted communities about what a boon casinos have been);
or Connecticut.
