If this came out today, it just might be a hit. The production is perfect quite frankly. Funky to the fullest. I could see NERD or QTip destroying this ( would have fit right into The Rennaisance vibes). This vibe was new for Common and he did a solid job I believe. Universal Mind Control was probably everyone’s least favorite Common album but props to him for stepping out of his comfort zone. It’s not a terrible album.
