*Throwback*/Hip-Hop – Common – The 6th Sense ft. Bilal
What a record, damn! Produced by DJ Premier, it features Premier’s trademark chorus with scratched samples; the samples are from “Memories Are Here to Stay” by The Intruders and “Allustrious” by Mobb Deep. The hook features vocals by neo-soul artist Bilal. Many critics from respectable publications have considered the record to be one of Common’s best, stating that the song is quintessential Common, both uplifting and thoughtful. Stand up for real hip-hop!
