Throwback: Common Reminisces on Sixth Studio Album “Be” |Video|


Common recently sat down with Reekbok to talk in depth about his sixth studio album, ‘Be,’ on ‘Classic Albums by Classic Artists,’ presented by Reebok Classics and Rock the Bells. Produced by Kanye West, “Be” not only sold over 800,000 copies upon its release back in May 0f 2005, but also hit the Billboard 200 chart at No. 2!

Here’s an excerpt of what the Chi Town native had to offer:

“I’m from Chicago, I got to give what I know I come from and it was like hitting the core of that and knowing that every city, every part of the world has a corner to it. It might be called something different, it might be, you know, “The Corner,” but it’s something that… a junction where people come to commute and people like relate….It just was like a song I wanted to introduce what I was about, you know and what this album was going to be about.”
