Common Premieres New Record “Home” Produced by Karriem Riggins
No I.D. was the guest DJ on Soulection Radio Show's 264th episode, and brought with him an exclusive from Common titled "Home" that was produced by Karriem Riggins and will featured on Com's forthcoming new album. The track begins at around 2 hour mark in the above SoundCloud clip, and is "so rare" that only a single verse could be played.
On his verse. Com flips biblical references within his rhymes giving his journey a sense of prophecy. He raps, "Cover the lands and corners with poems and stone / Go hard with it let ‘em know you god with it / Even though I authored it, let no one margin it / And make it all about paper or first week sales / Though this is from heaven give ‘em verses from hell / Those that fell off the path bring em back to the map / Your staff’ll be your microphone / Your name is Common you was born to fight the norm / Take house [indecipherable] out of darkness 'til they lights is on / Ima put a hyphen on your name / Rapper, actor, activist / You the one that can reach into the black abyss."
Back in May, Common posted a video to Instagram saying that he was “geeked up about the new project” he was about to begin working on, and in April, a photo appeared on Twitter of he and Riggins in the studio. "New music coming real soon!," he wrote then, with the fruits of that studio session beginning to show themselves with "Home." Listen to the new track up above.
