||Get On Down and Sony Music proudly present, Common’s sophomore album, Resurrection. While the album was originally neglected
by the mainstream, it has since received a great deal of critical acclaim and is now on The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums. In comparison to his debut album, Common’s musical style evolved lyrically by his expressing of himself rather than just describing street life.
With its Jazz and Hip Hop flavors, Resurrection furthered the growth of both genres. Overall, the album is commonly perceived as an underrated Rap classic and now this legendary album is available in a much anticipated, 2xLP gatefold jacket edition.
Resurrection was produced almost entirely by No I.D., who has gone on to work with heavyweights like Usher, Alicia Keys and Rihanna, and he recently produced the first two singles for Jay-Z's new album The Blueprint 3. In addition, No I.D. is credited as the man who introduced Kanye West to Hip Hop production, inviting him to his sessions with Common when West was only starting out.
The 2xLP features the original 15 album tracks (all cuts remastered from the original masters) and three remixes of “Resurrection”. Two of the remixes were produced by the one and only Large Professor of Main Source fame and the third is another track by No I.D. The gatefold jacket art features in-depth liner notes written by Brian Coleman with Common and No I.D. All this plus a full sized poster to
boot. This reissue of an early 90s genre expander is a must have for any music collector or fan of good music.
