Listen: Common - "The Beat Tape Project"

Always a fan of well executed remix projects and breathing new life into forgotten tracks, but as part of the newest release from The Beat Tape Project, entirely new instrumentals have been created in the overall vibe of an artist, in this case Common, without any vocals. The beats are mostly mellow, while some are experimental, but aimed at the vibe that Common, as an artist, inspires the producers showcased on the project. If only Common would reach out to aspiring producers and use a broader range of sounds, maybe he wouldn't be so heavily criticized for his beat selection and "softer" image. We can only hope he listens to stuff like this and realizes he should get some new A and Rs in his life. Props to the 35 beatmakers featured on the project!
