1. Common Sense Rhyming at Fat Beats NYC in 1997 (VIDEO).


    “… Come to Fat Beats on a Saturday/ March in like the Saints on the Latter Day…”

    September 27, 1997 to be exact. Lord Sear with the intro. Props once again to DJ Eclipse .

    Eclipse says: Here's a clip from Common's Fat Beats NYC in-store for One Day It'll All Make Sense . The in-store was actually a few days before the album was released so we only had his single for sale that day. We were also pushing No I.D. 's The Black Album (with Dug Infinite ) which had come out early that week. This Common album was the last time that No I.D. and Com would do an album together until 2011. Like most in-stores at Fat Beats it was never limited to just the artist who's in-store. Many times other artists would pop in and perform and on this day Lord Sear ( Stretch & Bobbito / Shade 45 ) had stopped by and got on the mic with Common. Shout out to Mista Sinista from the X-Men/X-Ecutioners who not only did all the scratches on Common's earlier albums, but was present this day to provide the music. In fact, his album X-Pressions with the rest of The X-Ecutioners had dropped earlier that week as well.
