I thought about this for a long time. No matter how I look at it, it sounds like a terrible idea. Common does not need a “feel good” album. It is the lyrical complexity and social consciousness of his work that makes him so great in the first place. To replace that with some already tired-sounding Neptunes beats and Pharrell telling me to shake my behind is akin to taking an eclair and replacing the cream in the center with mud. He should stick to what he’s good at, it’s as simple as that.
