....what? someone doesn't know a little something about business, not just music business, business in general.........take a look at the amount of people already complaining about the short number of tracks......if Common was going straight for the money he would have done the opposite and had 15-18 tracks, with about 5 being interludes and fillers....its an obvious fact that what people want is more for their money, just because you have 17 tracks on the record doesnt mean the artist spent more money, there is something called cheap production....basically Common said "fu*k it im going to make what I want to make, I have my fan base, they'll be the loyal ones the buy the record with 11 tracks or 11000 tracks"....another obvious clue to why Common isnt about money, who he put on his record, yeah Kanye is the "hot" producer, but he's almost an in house producer when working with Common, he has no "popular" artist being featured.......
......this concludes class :rolleyes:
so right they need more intelligent people with COMMON SENSE!!!!!

May 2005 XXL

Music is supposed to mirror life. With 11 tracks that focus on feeling not filler, the Chicago champ formerly known as Common Sense has birthed ‘05’s top LP with the impeccable Be. The album’s first single, the impenetrable inner-city anthem “The Corner,” sets up the initial statement for the man born Lonnie Rashid Lynn: He’s neither that rapper on Resurrection not the one on Electric Circus-he’s evolved into a synthesis of the two. On Be, Common plays poet and documentarian, showing us the triumphs and tragedies that occur in Ghetto, USA. And with Be’s co-pilot, Kanye West, supplying the lion’s share of the score (nine of eleven tracks) by stepping up even his production game with layers of bluesy yet granite-hard compositions, joints like the jazz-fueled “Real People” reflect Common’s penchant for “showin n*gga’s lives like UPN.” In fact, the CD’s cohesive sound can be attributed to the synergy between Common and Kanye.

Common’s wordsmith wizardry soars beyond stylistics: It excels at photographing real life. On “It’s Your World,” Comm recounts his own coming of age and the story of an aspiring songstress turned prostitute. Over soul-stirring strings and a marching drum track courtesy of J-Dilla (the producer behind the LP’s remaining two tracks), Common recalls, “I remember in high school she had a passion to sing/Now she see herself in a casket in dreams.”

While label support and the times heavily influence whether great music can be crowned classic, if nothing else Common has created a flawless album. By giving us himself completely and speaking to and for us as complete people, he’s birthed the total package.

From what I read Kanye does a large number of hooks... I hope not, that will bother me.

Common's Be is almost like Jay-Z's Blueprint...6th album, 11 tracks ('cept no bonuses) Kanye on it, except now Kanye's more experienced and working with a better MC. His first single didn't buzz like I.Z.Z.O. but I think Common might make some sales this time, AND...sh*t I forgot what I was going to say.
