i bought common's new album, finding forever on saturday night. the album is really smooth, i've listened to it at least 10 times since i bought it. common collaborates with everyone from kanye to d'angelo & will.i.am to lily allen. the video for drivin' me wild featuring lily allen just premiered on mtv yesterday. right now that is my favorite track on the album & is only strengthened by the video (gotta love jeremy piven's cameo).
i definitely recommend the album; he's kept it in his style, but it sounds fresh & new. here's a review from someone a little more unbiased.
