Be – Common (LP)


From Wikipedia:

Be is the sixth studio album by American rapper Common. It was released on May 24, 2005, by Geffen Records and GOOD Music. The album is Common’s first album under Geffen, following the mediocre performance of 2002’s Electric Circus and July 2003 merger of preceding label MCA Records, which like, Geffen and its sister label Interscope Records, was a division of Universal Music Group.[5]

The album was primarily and executively produced by rapper and GOOD Music founder Kanye West, with additional production from frequent collaborator J Dilla. It debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 185,000 copies in the United States.[6] The album is Common’s second album to sell over 500,000 copies (over 800,000 copies sold), becoming a certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Be was also a critical success, receiving acclaim and accolades from several critics and music publications. The album received a perfect “XXL” rating from hip hop publication XXL[7] and was deemed Common’s magnum opus by HipHopGoldenAge.[8]
