Common (Sense) - Resurrection (1994)

This album is a great introduction to Common, in case you haven't listened to his work before. The ripe production, which mainly uses jazz samples, keeps the listener attentive to the lyrically intellectual wisdom spoken by him. He weaves combinations of irony and double-entendres into his storytelling and paints images with his words. A great album, and if you liked this, be sure to check out his fourth album, Like Water For Chocolate, which if I may add, was the album that made me start listening to hip-hop in the first place. You probably don't want to miss this. This album, indubitably, is one of the finest displays of lyricism in Hip-Hop.
