Album: Be
Producer: Kanye West
Label: G.O.O.D. Music/Geffen

Whenever you have two of Chi-Town's finest emcees on one track, it's pretty much a guarantee that you're going to have a banger. Case in point: "The Corner." Common flexes his storytelling muscle, while the ever-prophetic Last Poets join in to deliver depth to the desolation that's being describe. Kanye is at his most gritty on this song's hook. He may not be able to give us the feeling, but he comes pretty damn close.
