I just downloaded Common's 'Universal Mind Control' and I am lovin' it. You can certainly hear the Afrikaa Bambaataa influence in it. In fact, it inspired me to go download 'Planet Rock' too.
I grew up with the early days of hip hop...Run DMC, Afrikaa Bambaataa, Melle Mel, The Furious Five, Grandmaster Flash, The Beastie Boys, Salt-N-Pepa, LL Cool J. These are the sounds of my youth, and I'm really enjoying reminiscing about where I was and what I was doing when I heard those songs for the first time.
