More New Common: Black Maybe and Misunderstood

Common – Misunderstood
Common – Black Maybe

I wasn’t going to post about these new Common tracks, but that’s before I heard them mainly because I’ve posted some stuff from Finding Forever before. However, these tracks are the best hip-hop songs I’ve heard this year. Period.

Black Maybe is being produced by your friend Kanye West who is looking to have yet another banner year with this album as well as his own, while Misunderstood ( was produced by G.O.O.D music’s in-house producer Devo Springsteen. I like the former more than the latter but either way, Finding Forever is shaping up to be the album of the year for 2007.
