Rapper, actor, and now a writer. In his book which was published last May, Let Love Have the Last Word, Common looked back over his life and even revealed that he was molested as a child. It was that book that inspired this album: “That book was really personal and I went to places that I’d never been before. I thought that as an artist, I could do the same thing.” Well, with Let Love, we’re not exactly in unknown territory for fans of the Chicago rapper. You could even say that he’s reverted to the old Common we used to know, that of Like Water for Chocolate (released in 2000) with the Soulquarians. James Poyser, The Roots’ keyboardist, features on the opening two tracks Good Morning Love, showcasing the rapper’s typical mellow touch, and HER Love, on which Common pays tribute to the late producer J Dilla.
Love is clearly the main theme of the album (the word love features in seven of the eleven track titles) and Marvin Gaye fans will be delighted to hear that BJ The Chicago Kid sings on two songs: Forever Your Love and the percussive track Memories of Home. The only rapper ever to have won a Grammy, an Emmy and an Oscar is still as versatile as ever, which he demonstrates on Leaders (Crib Love) with A-Trak, over a Philly type beat rap, and on Fifth Story, with the balaclava-clad New Yorker Leikeli47. There’s no doubt about it: Common is still the best link between soul and rap. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.
