Common - 'Lovin' I Lost'

YO! TUNEDR RAPS






Common - 'Lovin' I Lost' (2011)

This is Soul on a pole!! A superb, bitter sweet, soulful Hip Hop record with a wonderful Curtis Mayfield sample ('I Loved and I Lost' by the Impressions). A track in which he pours his heart out on, possibly over the breakup of his relationship with blue ribbon tennis champ, Serena Williams. For me, it's the standout track from Common's 9th album, 'The Dreamer, The Believer', a bit hit and miss but with Common you're always guaranteed an ace!

Common....he got served!
