Day 3: The Ladies Edition!
Not many rappers know how to successfully cater to the female audience. And I’m not talking about just wrapping a real hot beat and catchy hook around utter jibberish!

Come Close – Common feat. Mary J. Blige (from Electric Circus)
The Light – Common prod. by J. Dilla (from Like Water For Chocolate)
…it don’t take a whole day to recognize Sunshine!
