Song of the Week: Black Star feat. Common – “Respiration”


I was really drawing a blank today when it came time for me to pick Song of the Week. I don’t know if you guys know how hard it is to pick ONE song out of thousands, but thanks to a good friend, I was reminded of this gem from Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Common. I know this isn’t your typical “King Jerm” song, but just because I give Soulja Boy and Ross props, please don’t think I don’t know my music. This is probably one of my favorite songs when I want to wind down and relax. The production (by Hi-Tek) is mellow, but hard at the same time. I’m not getting into lyrics, because we all know that all three of these guys can bring it. Enough of me talking, I’m sure you guys are listening to either Blueprint 3 or OB4CL2 right now, so I’m doing my obligatory post for the day. Hope you guys are enjoying the music, and I hope you guys enjoy this installment of Song of the Week!
