At this time when we still don’t know who our president will be, televised performances have kept us in the fold. The other night Common stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform a new track with Black Thought and PJ. what ensued from the performance of “Say Peace” off the new Common album A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1 was provocative and beautiful.
The powerful performance featured the artists amid videos shot on the bodies. With clips of protests, Common spit on the mic like the old days while reminding us of his power on a mic. As he spit words with an incredible flow, the imagery and the words blended together with backup singers and a sound that hit perfectly.
The performance is ready to view above. A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1 is available for purchase from Loma Vista Recordings. It can also be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased in all digital outlets.
