    Just get The People and So far to go...but if people like Hip-Hop they would have the latter from J Dilla's Album "The Shinning" which has more oomph then this...so my advice is what? Just get "The People" track as the rest is tired, boring and uninteresting...this is souless hip-hop and is an insult...BE was disappointing but this is worse, Common stop being a sell-out and go back Just get The People and So far to go...but if people like Hip-Hop they would have the latter from J Dilla's Album "The Shinning" which has more oomph then this...so my advice is what?

    Finding Forever, Common’s spectacular seventh full-length, isn’t 'The Bitch in Yoo,' but it is his hardest release since.

    Kayne West once again saves his friend from the NAACP lecture circuit with soul-snapping beats that effectively turn the headliner into a guest star on his own album. [Aug 2007, p. 110]
  3. West produces the bulk again on Finding Forever, and it's his skill in embellishing a sample and his unerring eye for a soulful hook that is consistently bringing the best out of his mentor-turned-protege.
