Conscious hip-hop: Common’s “Pyramids”

Common by Jesse Wiles

Common always comes correct when he drops anything and his newest album Black America Again is no exception. One of the standout tracks on the project, of which there are many, is “Pyramids.” The song, which is jam-packed with content, samples an Ol Dirty Bastard sample offering a nice contrast to Common’s crystal clear delivery. Give it a listen below and enjoy.

However, if it sounds like this track with Common we’re pretty excited to hear it. Take a listen below and stay tuned for more info about MC Lyte’s album, which should be out sooner rather than later.
