SPACE POV: reading the lyrics, I identify. This is life. We all get it from somewhere and we give it to the rest. Everything in between is our kin. As many alien species as I've met in my line of work, I have to say, color is nothing compared to culture. People may assume your culture by the shape of your nose, your eyes, the color of your skin, the texture and color of your hair, the way you dress or talk, how many limbs or heads you have, whatever, but it's a fraction of the big picture.

Such a deep song, from a deep dude. Common is one of the best. Deserves more accolades than what he receives. Doesnt rap about clothing and who hes sleeping with, the cars hes driving, because thats not truly what's important, and our youth need to hear that.
Ill joint by thhe man who keeps it real. Much respect
Love dis track
Love his flow!! He spits about what's real
I feel this...makes me think about Chicago
Luv it
Real Hip-Hop
