The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

#9. Common "Resurrection"

Year: 1994
Produced By: No I.D.
Album: Resurrection
Label: Relativity

Common "Resurrection (Large Professor Remix)"

Everything about Common's second single from the album of the same name screams Chicago. From the feeling to the samples to the references—this is the song made for cold February nights along Lake Michigan. This is the sound that the Bony Homey from Stony and No I.D. were born to create.

Bonus: Stepping out of his Chicago comfort zone, Common recruited Large Professor (who could do no wrong at the time) for the equally dope and important remix.
