Common | ‘Take It Ez' | Released on September 2, 1992. For me, it was the B-Side, ‘Soul By The Pound’, that made this single a success. Common's flow was less laid back & in the cut on his debut album, 'Can I Borrow A Dollar?’, but the bass heavy production from Immenslope on ‘Soul By The Pound' set the stage for the sound of Common's sophomore album, 'Resurrection’. They used the ‘Thump Mix’, not the original version, for the official video. Common's latest album, 'Nobody Smiling' (his 10th studio album), is in stores now.
