Hillel Cool J- Anything But Common Vol. 1


Thankfully I was blessed with growing up in Chicago and loving hip-hop because it meant I got to listen to Common (Sense). This lyricist played with words like no other and to this day I’m STILL catching new wordplays in his classic album Resurrection. However, what I admire most about Common is his growth as a true artist. He has never been afraid to try on new sounds, new flows, and new directions… challenging his audience along the way. Some folks are great hip-hop MCs but Common will go down as a great musical influence. Since there is just too many incredible songs in his collection, I offer up this first installation.

“I met this girl, when I was ten years old and what I loved most she had so much soul…”
