Today, we know Common as an Oscar-winning MC and a member of the “Suicide Squad,” but 10 years ago, his focus was on Be.
On Sunday, May 24, Common – formerly known as Common Sense – will celebrate the album’s 10-year anniversary. And it’s an album worth celebrating.

Like many iconic rap albums, Common’s Be layered life lessons over hypnotic beats. And those lessons are as valuable today as they were in 2000. Let’s take a look at just some of the ways Common showed us how to Be better with this album.
“Though I know to grow, a ni–a gotta learn to let go / Though I know the dough, I gotta bring back to the ghetto.” -“The Food”
