Common is one of the most respected veterans in the hip-hop world and over the past few years, he has always made sure to speak on pressing issues in his music. The artist is a poet in its truest form and his new projects always provide some incredible lyricism and flows. On Friday, he dropped off A Beautiful Revolution Pt.2 which contains an array of features. On the song “Saving Grace,” we get a feature from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, who sounds fantastic when paired with Common’s rapping.
The track has a psychedelic guitar part which is fed through a wah pedal to give you that Funkadelic sound that one would find on a track like “Maggot Brain.” From there, Common delivers an inspired verse all while Howard belts out the perfect complementary verse to fit the aesthetics of the record.
