New Music Review: Common feat. Pharrell - "Universal Mind Control"

First off, I am a very big fan of the music video legend, Hype Williams. The same individual who directed memorable videos for Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot and Noreaga has come back with a very futuristic and robotic video for a very futuristic and robotic song (which is the main attraction here).

It is safe to say that Common has definitely fallen under the influence of the N.E.R.D machine. Not saying that this is a bad thing at all, it's almost kind of refreshing to see Common Sense take a shift from the overly sensitive, bleeding-heart rap that everyone has grown accustomed to.

In the end, I am very excited to see what Common has in store for us...

I like it. It's kind of got that 80s old-school vibe. Makes me think of Grandmaster Flash
