If you're talkin' about the track called "fu*k Jay-Z".......then it wasn't a diss. Jin was just proving the fact that beef grabs so much attention. I'll admit the only reason that I listened to the song is because I thought it was a diss. But yeah....its no diss, Jin even says Jay is one of his favorites on the track.

This album is actually really good and I personally recomend it, please take some time to apreciate the critic reviews I have gathered which should help promote his album.

Feel free to share your views if you agree or disagree and post your own review of the album if you already have it, thank me with props if you find my efforts help full.


Entertainment Weekly
Be's leanness signals awesome growth even without pushing sonic boundaries. [27 May 2005, p.136]


E! Online
A sprawling, varied disc that's as laid-back as a cool summer afternoon.


Spin
Even when the music flags, Common's remarkably hungry raps push it along. [Jun 2005, p.102]


Vibe
Overflowing with passion, honesty, and optimism, Be gets to the root of human experience--all the while staying beautifully soulful and funky. [Jun 2005, p.156]


Q Magazine
Common's best album so far, one that proves hip hop can be both smart and mainstream. [Jul 2005, p.114]


Filter
Although Kanye's production work has certainly been more spectacular in the past, his subtle tweaks and inversions on Be provide Com with a revamped template. [#16, p.94]

Pitchfork
The lack of instant-gratification couplets may disappoint at first, but each verse's rewarding intricacies become more evident with multiple listens.


cokemachineglow
Sure, there’s no “Watermelon” or “Communism”, but Be’s wit presents on a grander scale than a dependence on sprinkled, chucklable oneliners would allow.


Village Voice
West presents Common with a real challenge: rich rhythmic compositions that demand equally vivid verses. The elder MC responds with sharp Polaroid poetry, and the result of their collaboration is an uncluttered journalistic counterpoint to the rambling memoir that is The College Dropout.


Uncut
The record's feel, like West's College Dropout, offers a rich jukebox of gospel-tinged R&B flavours over which Common scatters his gems. [Aug 2005, p.97]

New Musical Express
Gives hope to a hip-hop stuck in a mire of mediocrity. [18 Jun 2005, p.64]


The Guardian
Though not quite 2005's best hip-hop album - [Kanye] West retains that honour for himself - Be is a lean and vibrant masterclass in hip-hop fundamentals.


The Onion (A.V. Club)
After blasting off into outer space with Electric Circus, Common returns to more solid ground with Be, but thanks to West, Poyser, and Jay Dee, the sounds are often nothing short of heavenly.


RapReviews.com
Common's naturally smooth flowing voice is a pleasure to listen to, making even the times when he is overreaching his grasp that much more tolerable in comparison to lesser peers.



PopMatters
Be is Common getting his "grown man" on.



Rolling Stone
West is the producer Common has been waiting for all of his career: He makes Common both catchier and edgier at the same time.


The New York Times
"Be" is certainly a triumph, but if it isn't quite the all-time classic Common was hoping for, that's because it sounds a bit too straightforward. [25 May 2005]


Blender
Be picks up where West's The College Dropout left off. [Jun 2005, p.113]


Prefix Magazine
The album is an extremely satisfying listen, but if Common is to lead the revolution, he has to make more of a statement than a great bass line and some tight rhymes.


All Music Guide
Be isn't likely to be referred to by anyone as groundbreaking, but it's one of Common's best, and it's also one of the most tightly constructed albums of any form within recent memory.


Tiny Mix Tapes
Regardless of the modernist leanings of Kanye's techniques, the album retains an organic feel that rivals Com's hemp beanie and Erykah Badu's incense.


ShakingThrough.net
Be won’t win many points for daring, but in terms of user-friendly hip-hop charged by a refreshingly positive undercurrent, it more than hits its hard-to-miss mark.


Paste Magazine
In a year that has also brought the envelope-pushing production work of Edan’s album Beauty and the Beast, the rehashed soul sometimes comes off limp, too content with itself and its well-worn form to challenge the genre’s status quo.


Dot Music
Lazily accomplished without ever truly igniting, a classy update on a slightly dated hip-hop sound.


Stylus Magazine
So frustrating then, for such a multitalented rapper, to have his supposed magnum opus weak, stale, and far more aged than we’d expect.


Slant Magazine
Each neo-soul nod to the R&B sound of Detroit, immediately post-Holland-Dozier-Holland, sounds more claustrophobic and limited than the last.

I find it to be a classic album, but the only thing it lacks is risk. Testify can hardly count as a risk. All the songs are the same structure, and non really rebelled and stuck out.

He got his point across though. Cuz everyone is talking about this track. They obviously aren't even listening to it though. He says over and over again its not a diss and he's got love for Hova.

What y'all think?

And please read the descriptors for each option...let's not have the usual inflated bx poll (even though it's bound to happen).

Yeah I voted for it as a classic, but I think it should be a 4.

If he reworks this a little bit, I think the retail can be a legitimate 5 mics album classic.
