    • cmonhomiewemajor

      you can’t say “don’t hate on my opinion” if your opinion is just hating

  • PTK

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

      • PTK

        there’s nothing to comprehend. he mumbles through every interview and manages to not say anything meaningful.

        • THE REAL mac DIESEL

          ARE YOU LOOKING FOR BIG WORDS??? THEN BUY A FUCKIN’ DICTIONARY!!!!

          DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

          • PTK

            i’m looking for substance not “rhyming big words and not sayin shit”

          • THE REAL mac DIESEL

            “Truth”

            Then clearly you not listening because its more then obvious Common speaks on a number of topics that contain a vast amount of substance and that includes musically. You watched a 20 min interview with Common Sense of all people and you still looking for substance? Smh

          • marty mcfly

            The part about J Dilla is enough right there to make this interview worth listening to. Let alone the comments about this album and his last one and that story about Kanye, his acting career, his musically direction now etc…

          • PTK

            that one point about jdilla was enough for a 23 minute interview?

          • marty mcfly

            YEAH… but the whole interview was dope.

          • PTK

            you must not have heard the combat jack interview or the vladtv interview or any other interview he’s done in the past week half the interview was him stuttering

          • marty mcfly

            We aint talking about no other interviews, we talking about this one and no he wasn’t stuttering for half the interview. The point is you were looking for substance when that was present throughout the whole interview.

          • PTK

            all that shit is standard fare for every rapper interview EVER. “tell me about the new album, who are you working with”; answers to those question don’t amount to substance. your hero does wack interviews and he should probably get a speech coach.

    Elliott just has that personality about him that makes ANY artist free & open around him. That’s what makes a GREAT interview….
