Producer: No I.D.

Common teamed up with day one collaborator No I.D. on this gritty cut from his third LP, One Day It’ll All Make Sense. Common spits two and a half minutes of uninterrupted bars on top of this Soul Dogs sample, which sees No I.D. grab a couple ring outs and stabs from the intro, and speed them up under a subtle breakbeat. Whether he knew it or not at the time, No I.D. was the first to flip a record that would influence many of his contemporaries.
